The DJI Air 2 was one of the best drones released in 2020, offering everything most drone operators could ever want: a high-resolution camera, excellent battery life, tremendous range, and intelligent obstacle avoidance technology, just to name a few of its selling-points. Now, the Chinese drone powerhouse has released an updated version, calling it the DJI Air 2S.

Minor design and construction tweaks aside, there are three main upgrades that differentiate the DJI Air 2S from its predecessor:

  • 1-inch CMOS sensor capable of recording 5.4K footage at 30 frames per second or 4K footage at 60 frames per second.
  • Intelligent obstacle sensing in four directions that makes it possible for the drone to actively avoid obstacles in more complex scenarios and at high speeds.
  • Advanced O3 (OcuSync 3.0) image transmission technology capable of delivering an ultra-smooth, clear, and reliable image feed at distances of up to 12 km.

These features alone make the DJI Air 2S a great all-rounder capable of recording professional-grade video footage, covering large distances, and providing aerial views, among other things.

Other noteworthy features include intelligent HDR technology capable of merging multiple shots, automatic hyperlapse and panorama creation, and MasterShots, an advanced intelligent feature that gives you the best shots in any location with just a tap.

The DJI Air 2S starts at $999, but the price jumps up to $1,299 if you purchase it two extra batteries, four ND filters, a charging hub, and a shoulder bag.

At this price point, it’s very difficult to find a more capable drone, especially if you’re a traveling videographer and want the best image quality in the smallest package. One possible alternative is the Skydio 2, a self-flying drone released in 2019 that records 4K footage at 60 FPS.

Emirates Airline To Invest $2 Billion On Major Upgrades

Emirates plans a huge retrofit on its fleet and an upgrade to the inflight experience.

Emirates Airline has just announced plans to improve its inflight experience for passengers. The carrier has budgeted $2 billion to refit the interiors of over 120 of its aircraft, aiming for a more modern aesthetic for cabins, along with better food choices, modern inflight entertainment options, and a significant service overhaul.

Emirates is well known for its premium service, so this overhaul is an ambitious decision, as many other airlines are trying their hardest to increase revenues and reduce costs.

“Emirates is flying against the grain and investing to deliver ever better experiences to our customers. Through the pandemic we’ve continued to launch new services and initiatives to ensure our customers travel with the assurance and ease, including digital initiatives to improve customer experiences on the ground. Now we’re rolling out a series of intensive programmes to take Emirates’ signature inflight experiences to the next level,” says Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline.

The investment aims to ensure Emirates stays on top form, with many of the upgrades scheduled to materialize quickly. For the physical refit, aircraft are scheduled to enter the Emirates Engineering Center in November. So what can passengers expect once work is complete? The most significant change will be to aircraft interiors, where flyers of all classes will immediately spot new flooring, paneling, and reupholstered seats.

As well as a physical overhaul, the airline plans to upgrade entertainment systems, adding a “Cinema in the Sky” experience, complete with a bespoke app. In addition, better meal choices will reflect changing dietary preferences, including a new vegan menu and a nod to sustainability — though there will remain a strong luxury vibe to the proceedings, as the company has entered an exclusive agreement to offer Dom Perignon vintage champagne on board, as well as delicacies such as Persian caviar.

Though many of the improvements may seem trivial, Emirates is hoping that along with a huge cabin overhaul, their overall flight experience will continue to make travel a pleasurable experience, elevating their service above the competition.
