    I noticed BestBuy has the Mavic available with either 4K camera or 1080 camera. $1349.00 vs 1079.00 Cdn.

    There is only one version of the Mavic. It can shoot in both 4K and 1080p.

    Just make sure you get the version with controller. Not sure about prices in Canada, but in US controller-less (WiFi only) version is $750, while normal is $1,000. And then there is fly more bundle which basically includes bunch of extra batteries, small bag and various accessories for $1,300.
    The actual drone (and camera) in each version are identical.

    Perhaps the more expensive option is the fly more package with the bag and additional battery?

    all the details and specs are identical, except the camera 4k vs 1080. no mention of any 'extras'

    Given that retailer isn't a specialist in anything per se, it is far more likely that the item has been listed with incorrect information. Why is there no mention of the three options that all other specialist retailers are offering such as with or without the controller or the bundle package. Do you think you could order an extra battery or lens hood for the camera and gimbal from Best Buy? Probably not, but unlike Specialist Drone retailers, I notice you can buy a new fridge and hair dryer from Best Buy! This isn't a personal dig, just an example of why specialist retailers have the knowledge that multi product retailers don't.

    And it is interesting that the 1080p version is a "Hexacopter". lol

    Best Buy is the Canadian Apple dealer. They do not currently offer the bundle, or the Mavic only option.
