An additional set of high-resolution stereo vision sensors placed at the back of the unit was added in addition to the pair that are located in the front. There are also sensors on the left and right sides that allow for all around awareness.
The custom lens design is made up of eight elements and has been arranged in seven groups. The Phantom 4 Pro is also the first DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter which has allowed the rolling shutter distortion to be deleted. This has enabled the images captured when flying at high speed to be that much more higher quality.
Camera with 1-inch 20MP sensor the onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1-inch Megapixel CMOS sensor.
Five-directions of obstacle sensing
