    The earlier speculation in December was that the next Mavic was supposed to be a larger platform. Now the latest rumor is that it's a smaller version. Sounds like DJI really wants to keep everyone guessing and our curiosity a buzzing.

    Got the email from DJI about it yesterday. It´s basically a Spark with foldable arms, a 3 axis gimbal and 4K video. Camera is still 12 MP that only shoots in jpeg. At least, there was no mention of RAW capabilities. $799 basic or $999 with the fly more combo.
    My dream is a Spark with 20 (or more) MP and RAW capability. Until then, I love my Spark and will continue to use it.

    How have you missed the eight thousand threads about it? Any yes, it shoots RAW.

    For years I tried to comprehend how this is so common in public forums, but never could reconcile it. Now I just chuckle and move on.

    It was officially announced yesterday at 10 AM EST. The Mavic Air specs show the camera specs.

    Thanks. Missed the spec on RAW capability. If it had 20+ MP, it would be perfect...and probably cost over $2000. For what it is, however, not a bad price.

    My Nikon D3S is 12MP and I shoot raw. 12MP is plenty to get beautiful shots but I have to say I like my Nikon D800E's 36MP a lot more. Of the two and because of that reason I would wait for a sensor upgrade, but don't forget lens quality and sensor size play a big part in quality images particularly at higher ISOs.
