Upgraded camera system

The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus camera system has been significantly upgraded from the Phantom 4, improving every part of the camera including, sensor size, resolution, image processing system, and more.

1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS

Sensor size is more important to image quality than the number of pixels because a larger sensor captures more information in every pixel, improving dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and low light performance. The 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus is four times the size of the Phantom 4's 1/2.3in sensor. It uses larger pixels and has a maximum ISO of 12800 as well as increased contrast. It is good enough for images to be used immediately, while also capturing enough detail for advanced post-processing.

Production optimized 4K

An enhanced video processing system allows video to be captured in cinema and production optimized DCI 4K/60 (4096 x 2160/60fps) at a bitrate of 100Mbps, enabling you to get high-resolution slow motion shots. The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus also supports the H.265 video codec (Maximum resolution 4096X2160/30fps). For a given bitrate, H.265 doubles the amount of image processing as H.264, resulting in significantly enhanced image quality. Record in the high dynamic range D-log mode to make the most of this image data for colour grading.

High-resolution lens

The resolution and contrast of a lens is critical to image quality because only a quality lens can capture sharp, vivid photos at high resolutions. The brand new Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus camera has an aerial optimized F2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24mm equivalent focal length. It features eight elements – 2 aspherical – arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller, more compact frame. Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and low dispersion, ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid. For the first time ever with a DJI camera, MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) results for this camera have been made public, so people can get a better understanding of lens performance.

Capture Every Moment

Aerial imaging is not only used to capture landscapes; it brings new perspectives to everything from action scenes to motor racing. Capturing objects moving at high speed has always been a challenge for flying cameras using an electronic shutter. This is why the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus is the first DJI Phantom to use a mechanical shutter and a large-aperture prime lens. A max mechanical shutter speed of 1/2000 seconds eliminates motion blur and jello effect caused by shooting a fast moving object with a rolling electronic shutter. The electronic shutter has also been improved with a max shutter speed of 1/8000 seconds, and a new Burst Mode shoot capable of shooting 14 fps at 20 megapixels to catch the perfect moment.

Five-Directions of Obstacle Sensing

FlightAutonomy is expanded with an additional set of high-resolution stereo vision sensors placed at the rear in addition to the pair placed at the front as well as infrared sensing systems placed on the left and right sides. This network creates a total of five-directions of obstacle sensing and four-directions of obstacle avoidance, protecting the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus from more obstacles and giving filmmakers the confidence to capture more complex images.

Six-camera navigation system

Three sets of dual vision sensors form a six-camera navigation system that works constantly to calculate the relative speed and distance between the aircraft and an object. Using this network of forward, rearward and downward vision sensors, the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus is able to hover precisely in places without GPS when taking off indoors, or on balconies, or even when flying through windows with minimal pilot control. In the unlikely event that front and downward sensors are unable to operate, the aircraft can still hover in place using the rear stereo vision system. The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus also is able to fly in complex environments at a flight speed of up to 31mph (50kph) while avoiding obstacles in its path. It will automatically adjust its obstacle detection method in line with its flight speed, allowing it to avoid obstacles at high and low speed.

What is FlightAutonomy?

FlightAutonomy is an advanced aerial intelligence and flight automation platform. It is made up of a complex network of ten component groups including seven cameras — forward, rearward and downward dual vision sensors and the primary camera — an infrared sensing system, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), two downward facing ultrasonic rangefinders, redundant IMUs and compasses, and a group of powerful, specialized computing cores. The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus acquires a real-time view of its environment and information about the height and position of nearby obstacles to create a 3D map it can locate itself within. The IMU and compasses collect crucial flight status, speed and direction data, while redundant IMUs and compasses monitor critical data and rule out possible errors, dramatically enhancing the reliability of flight.

Infrared sensing system

The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus is the first DJI aircraft to use an infrared sensing system. Placed on the left, and right sides of the aircraft, these measure the distance between the aircraft and any obstacles using infrared 3D scanning. When in Beginner Mode and Tripod Mode, these sensors have a horizontal field of view of 70° and a vertical field of view of 20°, providing a wide view of the scene to the sides of the Phantom, and a maximum range of 23ft (7m). Traditional ultrasonic sensors only have a detection range of 3-5m and may be confused when affected by propeller vibration or when sensing uneven surfaces. The infrared sensing system is able to sense larger areas and measure the distance between the aircraft, identifying the closest objects accurately while avoiding interference, providing more reliable sensing and protection.

Remote Controller with Built-in Screen

The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus controller integrates an upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system that adds 5.8 GHz transmission support. The ability to choose between 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz allows pilots to cut through interference and eliminates image lag caused when flying in an area with extensive 2.4Ghz frequency use. Normally, Wi-Fi video transmission systems use a 2.4GHz frequency to work with a controller using a 5.8GHz frequency as this prevents interference that can occur when both use the same frequency. To perform normally, the video transmission system and the controller will interfere with each other causing image lag, especially if both use the same frequency. The use of two different frequencies has drawbacks in terms of flight performance. For example, flight performance will be affected when either of the two frequencies suffers interference.

The Lightbridge HD video transmission system used in the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus uses TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) to transmit signals, allowing it to send controller signals and receive video transmission signals at the same frequency. As the 2.4GHz frequency band is often affected by Wi-Fi, 4G cell towers, and other types of interference in urban areas, a 5.8Ghz band will increase transmission reliability. When switched on, the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus evaluates local signal levels, automatically choosing the transmission frequency with the lowest level of interference. This ensures the optimum range of a maximum video transmission of 4.3mi (7km)*.

A 5.5in 1080p screen integrated with the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus offers 1000 cd/m2 of brightness, more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices. It makes bright, vivid colours easily visible in direct sunlight. With this screen, a mobile device is not required, simplifying pre-flight preparations. As the DJI GO app is built into the screen, hardware and software can be fully optimized, further reducing video lag. Integration of an HDMI port, Micro-SD card slot, microphone, embedded loudspeaker, and Wi-Fi connection allow images to be edited inside DJI GO to be shared almost instantly. Lastly, a five-hour battery life makes the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus a complete aerial imaging solution.

Intelligent Flight

Drones are becoming easier and easier to control, but the piloting experience remains essential for quality aerial imaging. Using DJI’s machine vision and depth learning technologies, the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus transforms complex aircraft movements into simple orders, significantly simplifying aerial creativity. In contrast with satellite positioning based intelligent flight functions, Intelligent Vision enhanced flight ensures precision camera view and control.

Draw

Draw is a brand new technology for waypoint control. Simply draw a route on screen and the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus will move in that direction while keeping its altitude locked. This allows the pilot to focus on camera control and enables more complex shots. There are two Draw modes that can be used in different scenarios.

Standard: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera facing in the direction of flight.

Free: The aircraft only moves along the route when instructed. In this mode, the camera can face in any direction during a flight.

ActiveTrack

The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus automatically recognizes subjects, follows and captures them as they move, making it easier to get complex shots.

Following fast-moving objects can be very challenging, but advanced image recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus allow it to recognize and track the object while keeping it in the frame. This new algorithm also recognizes more subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother shots.

Pilots can now choose between:

Trace – Follow behind or in front of a subject, avoiding obstacles automatically.

Profile – Fly alongside a subject at a variety of angles to get profile shots of the subject.

Spotlight – Keep the camera trained on a subject while the aircraft flies almost anywhere.

TapFly

Fly in any direction visible on-screen with a simple tap. Tap anywhere on-screen to smoothly adjust the direction of flight while automatically avoiding obstacles * and tap the screen again or use control sticks to change direction. A new AR route function shows the aircraft’s real-time flight direction for reference as its route is adjusted. As it can be difficult to control altitude, course, speed and camera pitch simultaneously using joysticks, TapFly Free allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, allowing them to turn the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus or tilt the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. In total, there are now three TapFly modes:

TapFly Forward – Tap to fly in the selected direction

TapFly Backward – Tap to fly in the opposite direction of the tap, i.e. tap in the bottom right corner of the screen to fly backward towards the top left.

TapFly Free – Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without locking the camera direction allowing it to turn as it flies.

Obstacle Avoidance is not available with TapFly Free

Return to Home

In its upgraded Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is disconnected.

Based on its altitude at the time of disconnection, the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during its flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus will record the scene below and compare its recording with what it sees as it returns, for more precise landing. It can also detect the ground to see whether there is a suitable spot for landing. If any obstacles are found, or there is water on the ground, it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height, helping the aircraft to land more safely.

Gesture Mode

Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily using a few gestures without the remote controller. Advanced computer vision technology allows the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus to take instructions through gestures. The subject simply lifts their arms when facing the camera and the aircraft will recognize this movement by locking on and placing the subject in the centre of the frame. When ready for a photo, the subject holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A three-second countdown will begin, making time to strike a pose, allowing moments to be captured without the remote control.

Flight Performance

Flight modes

Different productions require different flight characteristics, and the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus offers three modes for flight: P, A and S. Switching between them allows pilots to get the control they need, whether they seek smoothness, simplicity, intelligent navigation or speed. In Position Mode, TapFly, ActiveTrack, obstacle sensing and positioning features are available. Sport Mode adds extra agility and higher speed, reaching 45mph (72kph). Atti Mode switches off satellite stabilization and holds the Phantom 4 Pro’s altitude. It is ideal for experienced pilots looking to capture smoother footage. Tripod Mode, which limits speed to 4mph (7kph) provides precision control for fine framing and indoor flying. Both the infrared sensing system and vision sensors are enabled in these modes for a safer flight experience.

4.3mi (7km) long-range control

Using brand new DJI Lightbridge HD video transmission technology, the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus has a maximum transmission range of 4.3i (7km)*. Before each flight, it scans a range of available frequencies to find and use the one with the least interference. By supporting 2.4GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands, it gives you more reliable control. Tightly integrated with DJI GO, Lightbridge video transmission also sends vital flight statistics in real time and can be used to quickly download photos and videos to connected mobile devices.

The Lightbridge video transmission system uses advanced transmission technologies and can automatically adjust to environmental conditions. It ensures high quality, low latency image transmission across its range and offers pilots a better shooting experience. Traditional analogue video transmission occupies a larger bandwidth and is more susceptible to interference. It also suffers from poor image quality and short range. Wi-Fi transmission also compares poorly, suffering from low latency, lengthy re-connection times, and short transmission distances due to the high cost of more powerful Wi-Fi transmission.

Unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant.

Sensor redundancy

The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus features dual compass modules and dual IMU units, making it more reliable when compared to many hexacopters and octocopters. Compasses and IMUs are important sensors to ensure a stable flight and the Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus constantly compares the data it receives through both pairs. This data is run through advanced algorithms to check accuracy and any inaccurate data is simply discarded without affecting flight, keeping flight steady and reliable.

Intelligent batteries

Professional aerial imaging benefits from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Pro Black Plus has a maximum flight time of 30 minutes, providing more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO app shows battery lifetime and calculates remaining flight times according to the distance travelled and more. It will give alerts when it reaches a minimum safe amount required for a safe journey back to the takeoff point. An advanced battery management system is also in place to prevent overcharging and over draining. When placed in longer term storage, batteries will discharge power to maintain good health.
