If you want close-ups of birds, get the mini 2. If you want to see your drone at a distance, get the Phantom 😁. They're both great at what they do. I sightsee with a Mavic and fish with a Phantom. Both take beautiful pics and vids.

Both take great video, the Phantom 4 seemed to have a little edge. Sadly, I do not speak Portuguese so could not understand the narration.

But P4P has the best. No comparison needed and in particular not with Mini.
What I'm really waiting for is the comparison between P4P and the new Mavic 3!

Same here Andy. I don't think a few of the responders here knew what the OP was asking. As a photographer I need the best still camera I can get. P4P has a slight edge on the M2P. I own both. Latest rumors indicate the upcoming M3P may have only a 20 MP camera. Serious disappointment, unless it is a new design that performs well in low light and higher ISO. But why would they do that without a MP increase? Just a rumor for now....

Yes. But the point isn't the number of pixels only.
Canon has downgraded its compact G1X to 12 MPx although the comparable cams has 16 MPx already. And it achieved better i,mage quality than the other. Of course it has a bit larger sensor.

So right Andy. As high end digital cameras have reached more than ample pixel counts, I have been only wanting 'better' pixels, not necessarily more. However, with drones, I like to produce large prints and the 20 MP is still on the low end. I often merge to panorama to get wide views and larger file sizes. That helps a bit with sharpness, but anything DJI still sells is a far cry from the IQ of my full frame Canons or my Fuji GFX system.

Thats a disappointment to me as well - BUT just saw today that the M3 is going to have a Micro 4/3 chip- at least for the wide angle lens. And the 7x zoom will only be 12mp.
The micro 4/3 sensor ought to have big improvement on dynamic range and low light shooting. I still only use the P4P-v2 and have been waiting to upgrade. The M3 pro may be it....

Hey Jeff- where are you getting your panos printed? And what kind of large prints have you done? I also love panos. Been doing a lot of 6-8 frame / 2 row panos lately. getting over 8,000pixels on the wide side.
Shot this last tuesday - full size is 8671 × 2777 pixels. Thats about the size of my D850 files
This is whole image reduced:
And a crop at 100%

Really would love to see this LARGE somewhere....
