This is very confusing. Hasselblad doesn't make sensors. They use Sony sensors. And a 1" sensor isn't a 100mp sensor - what are these folks confused about? Here's an article that confirms Sony makes the companys sensors: https://www.theverge.com/2018/2/6/16977522/hasselblad-camera-factory-tour

I'd assume its DJI marketing spin, they bought Hasselblad and are using a "camera brand" they own to help sell their flying cameras.

These drones are not actually announced yet i dont think? Maybe Photokina could reveal a bit more.

Correct on both accounts I expect, but I'm not sure what DJI has actually said. I went back a year ago and the rumor was that this was going to be the Hassleblad MF 100mp sensor and lenses in a gimbal. That's obviously not what this one is.

Is it possible that they're using Hassleblad engineers to design the optics?

It seems unlikely as they have literally no experience with 1" sensors and the glass that would entail. But more importantly the video specifies a Hassleblad sensor, not optics. Frankly it seems to me the video is a bit more speculative than it ought to be but he's generated hits so who am I to say.

from what I've heard and read, the old dated Phantom 4 Pro actually has better IQ than the Mavic 2 Pro (Hasselblad version)

Which is a shame, because for the most part these two UAVs have very similar specs... and the P4P is almost 2 years old now

Here's a video I just watched. You can compare the two:

I personally think the Mavis 2 pro is a little over-saturated (though the guy in the video says it was closer to actual color.)
But the P4P is definitely clearer/sharper.

I think the Mavic 2 Pro will probably see the P4 Pro discontinued.
Hard to justify paying extra for the P4 Pro now that the MP2 Pro is out.

I would disagree for the following reasons:

The 2 year old P4P is arguably a better camera than the M2P... I'm spending $1500 on a high-end consumer drone, I'm more worried about image quality and function than how portable it is.

Yes the M2P is MUCH more portable than the P4P, but I'm not looking for a $1500 drone to toss in my backpack. These aren't the point-and-shoots of the drone world.
There are other options for that.

I will say the specs of the M2P, like flight time additional 1 minute, cheaper batteries, operating at lower temps, etc. These are desirable.
But for a 2-year old P4P, there are huge improvements than could be made that would likely exceed the M2P simply because you have more space to work with internally.

When the M2P was announced I thought I was going to sell my P4P and buy one on release. But after seeing footage comparing the two, I don't think the M2P is at the image quality to justify the swap.

Maybe in another year or two, but the P4P larger internals will always allow for better components and capability compared to the compact sibling.



Also, 4k 60fps... and Cinema 4k...



But maybe the mass market feels different.

And the P4P and the M2P are the same price...

If the M2P was $500 cheaper, then I would agree with you. But at the same price, you're paying for the Hasselblad sticker and that means nothing when comparing actual image quality...

?

Both drones seem practically equivalent for video, except for a few small pros and cons that apply to each one.

Aside from everything else re portability, I like the quietness of the M2P, a very practical benefit for droning almost anywhere.

All academic for me - I'm not planning to upgrade my current MP to anything yet. I'll wait a year or so for prices to drop some more before thinking of an upgrade. Should see quite a few DJI refurbed M2P's turning up about a year after release.
