Landscape photographer here looking to finally play with aerial photography. I am sure I'll play with video at some point, but the main focus will be photography. I am torn between a new Mavic Mini 2 at costco ($449) vs a used Air 1 fly more combo for $200 locally. Which is the better aircraft for photography? Any chance of being able to print up to 12x18 without quality loss?

Hello there milowbrac. Good day and thank you for choosing DJI. I will be posting a DJI link ( https://www.dji.com/products/com ... ndsite&from=nav ) where in you can compare the specifications of both the DJI Mini 2 and the DJI Mavic Air 2. Thank you.

I print 18x12 shots from the Mini2 without any problems and I have no doubt it could go larger.   Depending on your local rules you may find that the <249g mini can legally fly places the air cannot.

One thing you need to consider is battery availability for the original Mavic Air.  Mini 2 is much newer and batteries will be cheaper and easier to find when needed.  Mini 2 is very portable and performs quite well for it's size and weight.

Heres an example of a Mini2 shot that I had printed at 30" x 20" And it looks fantastic.

even with the Mini 1, you can make nice photos.
I made prints on aluminium 80 x 45 cm and I am happy with the results.


But I can't wait, until Mini 3 is on the market...

Mini 2 is about the same as the Air 1 for photography. You can't go wrong with either one I guess.
