The comparison of the DJI Mavic Air vs DJI Mavic Air 2 should rather show the most striking differences. Notes on comparability with the DJI Mavic Mini can be found below;)

DJI Mavic Air 2 test and review in the video

In this Video On YouTube you will find a lot of further information as well as test recordings (photo and video) that were made with the DJI Mavic Air 2. Photos are from position 3:45, video recordings are made in segments from position 5:30 and position 11:10 and every now and then in between. You can also find the time stamps in the progress display and the video description. The video is in English.

Alternative to the big drones: DJI Mavic Mini

If none of this is for you, then maybe the DJI Mavic Mini accept. These have been available since the end of 2019 from 399 euros in the official shop by DJI. The specialty of the small drone is that it weighs only 249 grams. You don't need any proof of knowledge (“drone driver's license”) for it and it has three flight modes: C for cinema (cinema-like videos), P as standard and S for sport (fast recordings). The small alternative to the DJI Mavic Air 2 and DJI Mavic Air can also use microSD cards up to 256 GB and fill them with videos up to 2,7K resolution. The flight time is up to 30 minutes. Take a look at the post linked above or on the shop page, there you will find more information about the mini drone;)
