Looks like the Pro camera and the Advanced camera have the same connectors.
yes but as many have thought the cameras may well be the same camera just software disabled.It didn't come like that. The owner swapped his Pro and Advanced cameras to see if they were compatible. And, they are.
maybe the firmware is different as one disables 4k ?????????? hhmmmmmmThe firmware for the Professional and Advance are different on the DJI website. Changing the camera may create some issues for the software or the App. Have to see how it works to verify the features, such as camera settings are applicable. Does the firmware update know the type of Phantom? Would it even load on the wrong type... I doubt it.
in bulk volume the processor price difference would be pennies ,especialy if you buy just the better one and put in all vs just half that many to put in half. Just my thoughts. Im thinking it is just disabled somewhere. And marketing sells the better one for more, as if you can get more by saying better many will spend it.I'm kind of curious as well.. But slightly doubtful that it would just be firmware. The only published differences between the Pro and Advanced is the Camera Bitrate.. The Sensor is published as being the same.
The processor??? Why would DJI sell the cameras with a price difference of $250.00 with the same sensor and the same processor when they could put a less expensive processor in the camera that's only capable of 40 mbs and still make a relative price margin between the Pro and Advanced?
I'd be willing to bet they are the same camera with 4K disabled on the advanced.
We just need somebody to find and supply the hack to enable 4K.
I'd guess that since the quadcopter is the same and the camera is the only difference - if you put the 4K camera on your P2A, it's now a P2Pro and that's the firmware you'd be using.
