DJI Drone Sensor Size Comparison Page

See also: DJI Product History Timeline

There are many drones & cameras available from DJI with differences in sensor size, photo resolution, video resolution, and video format. I thought it would be convenient to have a single page with a visual sensor size reference and key camera specifications laid out clearly in order to make camera comparison easy. Did you know that in December 2018 there were five different variations of the Mavic being sold, with two different sensor sizes? =)

Initially this page will have actively sold products, and when products are no longer actively promoted and sold on DJI’s website I’ll move those to the “previous products” section towards the bottom. I will try to keep this page updated as new products come out.

For more info you can click on the product name and it will take you to DJI’s website.

**Note about camera sensor sizes: I am listing physical sensor sizes in millimeters as published on dxomark.com to make them easier to compare. DJI’s website lists the sensor size of the Zenmuse X7 in millimeters (23.5 × 15.7 mm) based on the real physical dimensions, but lists the Phantom 4 Pro’s sensor size as a 1” sensor, though it’s real diagonal measurement is probably more like 0.6 inches. By listing all the sensor sizes the same way it should be easier to visualize the difference. For more information on sensor format sizes, check out this table.

If you find this page helpful, most current products on this page have product links, and I'll get a small commission if a purchase is made through one of the links. The information provided here is for convenience only and should be confirmed on DJI’s website before making a purchase. Thanks, and enjoy!
