Camera Specs Compared between the Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4

Here is where the Photographers and Videographers will love the big changes to the camera specs as they are very significant and offer a huge improvement over the previous model.
Sensor: The Phantom 4 Pro now has a 1 inch sensor over the previous 1/2.3 inch so in terms of a small drone this is massive.
The New Phantom 4 Pro has a mechanical shutter faster burst rate and higher image resolution.  Full details below the Phantom 4 Pro is on the left against the Phantom 4 on the right.
