    Does the Mavic have digital zoom?

    Very cool. It's about time Dji put a zoom in. Can't wait for mine to arrive.

    It has been a feature of DJI GO for a while now.

    It's probably not such a useful feature anyhow. The quality is going to go down since it's only a digital zoom.

    I've tried it in DJI GO, but I've never needed to use it when flying.

    Doesn't work on 4K either.

    I'm not sure if you would loose quality if shooting in 1080 on a sensor that can do 4K native. Surely the camera would just use a smaller area of the sensor? You can easily get the same effect cropping in post (from 4K footage).
