Black Friday is an excellent time to snag some pretty significant discounts on expensive electronics, and that includes drones from DJI. Wellbots, B&H Photo and DJI are each offering a big discount on the DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone. It’s normally priced at $1,729, but you can save $350. That leaves you with a price of $1,379. If you shop from either Wellbots or B&H Photo, and live outside of New York state, you won’t be charged any sales tax on the purchase.
When he reviewed it last year, Verge video director Vjeran Pavic said the DJI Mavic 2 Pro produces great video footage and photos, even if you’re not an experienced photographer or videographer.
The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is fitted with a Hasselblad camera, which Vjeran said captures color well. It shoots HDR and has a hyperlapse feature that creates a video after you select the length of the intervals and the duration of the entire video. The drone reliably transmits video to your device so that you could edit video from your phone, and it has a battery life of about half an hour. Vjeran also found it easy to fly, with good obstacle avoidance and even autonomous modes, which makes it easier to focus on getting the footage you want.
The Verge ran an exclusive offer on this drone earlier this year, and you may have noticed that this price is actually a little higher. Due to the US tariff on certain products made in China, DJI significantly raised the prices of their products, bumping this particular drone from $1,499 to $1,729. Having it go back down to nearly the same price might not seem like a great deal, but until the tariff situation is, well, situated, this is as good as it will likely get.
