Parrot’s folding 4K drone is ready to take on DJI’s Mavic Air
Parrot may have scaled back its drone division and shifted some of its focus toward workers, but that doesn’t mean it’s downplaying the consumer side of things. If anything, it’s ramping things up. The company has unveiledthe Anafi, a folding drone that takes some not-so-subtle potshots at DJI’s Mavic Air. It’s not just the portability — the Anafi touts a 21-megapixel camera that promises 4K HDR video at 100Mbps, including 2.8X lossless zoom. The camera isn’t good as the Mavic Air’s in some respects, as it’s only using two-axis mechanical stabilization (software and a wide lens handle the third axis). Still, it represents a big improvement over the 1080p video and no-gimbal design of Parrot’s Bebop drones.
