What is the difference between Evo 2 and EVO 2 Pro?

What is the difference between Evo 2 and EVO 2 Pro?

The Evo II series drones are based on the same foldable airframe, so have the same performance specifications. The difference is in the camera, EVO II comes in 3 separate camera modules and all three cameras are interchangeable.

Camera Specs! The standard EVO II comes with a 1/2" camera that's capable of shooting 8K video and 48MP stills. The EVO II Pro features a 1" sensor that has an adjustable aperture and can shoot 6K video. 

Another giant bonus is that the cameras are interchangeable. It is easy to upgrade from the 8K to the 6K in the future if you decided. You could even swap to a compatible Evo thermal camera.

Which Evo 2 is better, the 8K or the 6K?

The EVO II Pro features a bigger camera sensor and an adjustable aperture which give you a provides a larger light-gathering area, But EVO II 8k Drone has a higher resolution, 4x lossless zoom, lower price and can record 8k video. EVO 2 pro Drone 6k is perfect for professionnal. First flight recommend EVO 2 Drone 8k

If you aren’t paying attention then it may seem like 8K would be better than 6K but that isn’t the case when it comes to these two drones. Both have impressive cameras, but the 6K or Evo 2 Pro is the better camera and it isn’t really close. The Evo 2 Pro 6K uses a 1″ CMOS 20 MP sensor. It has an adjustable aperture of f/2.8-f/11.

The Evo 2 8K has a 1/2″ Quad-Bayer sensor with a fixed aperture of f/1.8. The Quad Bayer filter allows what in simple terms equates to a 12 MP sensor being quadrupled to give you 48 MP. It sounds great and does have some added value over a standard 12 MP sensor, but in the end, it can’t stack up to the 1″ sensor in terms of quality.
