    With the Mavic you will get twice the resolution when shooting panorama's as with the Phantom, if you use the same camera point.
    The reason for this is the difference in focal length. the Mavic's focal length is 1.4 times longer then the P3/4.
    So for a given area you have to make 1.4hor * 1.4vert =1.96 times as much images as with the P3/4, which doubles the resolution.

    Off course you can fly nearer to a certain object with the Phantom but that will change you perspective.
    It all depends on your subject of choice of whether this will be acceptable.

    Also consider that you can tilt the camera vertically to make a panorama, as we do with DSLRs.

    Not seen yet.
    Btw. I didn't figure out the use of vertical framing for making panos, I've heard it from a DJI guy somewhere in the videos flooding these days.
    He said that vertical tilt was not intended for making selfies but for high res panoramic rows.

    There are some pano shots at the bottom of Romeo's page:
    MavicPro - Mark and Romeo's Aerial Adventures ...

    Hard to tell whether this was done in vertical mode. Kinda seems like it just from how much sky is visible, but I don't know how to do the math on the aspect ratio to confirm. Also remember these are early shots.

    Yes you can do that but is doesn't give your more resolution because the resolution per unitlenght stays the same.
