Autel EVO II (40 min flight time / 6k HDR) - Genuine Mavic 2 Competitor?



The EVO II is split across 3 versions (Specs highlights):


Autel EVO II


- 8K camera with 1/2-inch CMOS sensor.
- Maximum resolution of 48MP (8,000 x 6,000px) for stills.
- Video resolution will top at 7720 x 4320.


Autel EVO II Pro

- 6K camera with 1-inch CMOS sensor and 29mm (full-frame equivalent) lens
- Adjustable aperture (f/2.8-f/11).
- The sensor offers maximum resolution of 20MP (5,472 x 3,648px) for stills. Thanks to larger pixels, the ISO range is 100-12,800.
- HDR video and photo
- 10 bit colour


Autel EVO II Dual

- Camera module that combines the 8K camera with a thermal camera that offers a resolution of up to 640 x 512


All camera modules are interchangeable

From another source:
Quote:
The drones are currently in production, and the company is expecting EVO II to start shipping in a matter of weeks. The rest of the fleet should follow shortly after. While the pricing isn’t final yet, the company says we can expect the EVO II to cost around $1,495, and the EVO II Pro will cost around $1,895.

wow, its really impressive with all of these gizmos (8k camera, extended obstacle avoidance, flying time) but I'd be concerned about drones profile and side wind resistance: its pretty 'toll' and looks kinda like a tractor
Anyways, mentioned price range $1.4k (so most likely it will be around the same in euros) will make it more pro-use than pure hobby drone..but might be wrong

Nice to finally see some competition to DJI on the upper/pro end of the market.
I have loved all the DJI products I’ve had but this looks like an appealing alternative.

Looking forward to reading more about the Pro version with the 1" sensor @6k. Would be far more interested in it for good video quality than the 8k variant with the 1/2" sensor.

Same. I think the Pro 6k version is the one to be going for.

Sounds good on paper, but 8K on a sensor that small expect a tonne of pixel binning or else a fair bit of noise in anything but direct sunlight.

Thinking the same, 8K means nothing if the sensor is small!

I like that idea of interchangeable camera modules as it allows for upgrades
