The prominent ad in the catalogue was spotted and captured by Twitter users, and appears to confirm some details of previous leaks about the drone, and dispel others (such as a removable gimbal).

Both models will also be able to transmit live 1080p videos across a distance of up to five miles and will each feature 360-degree obstacle avoidance (described as "omnidirectional obstacle sensing") in the form of DJI's Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) and Active Track 2.0 (an updated version of DJI's auto-tracking technology). The Zoom will come with a 2x optical zoom lens, while the Pro model will include a Hasselblad camera with a 1-inch sensor.

The BBC report goes on to note how popular the original Mavic Pro proved to be especially with filmmakers because of the way it could be folded down and compactly stored. It will turn the sky into your creative canvas. In the catalog, there is no mention of the recording capabilities, though we would not rule out 4K recording features. There's also a dolly zoom on the, er, Zoom version.

The latest edition of the catalogue store's literature features photos and technical specifications of the as yet unannounced Mavic 2 Pro drone.

There's no pricing information in the Argos catalog, but we'd be surprised if these new Mavic Pros came in at under $1,000. While the company has postponed the July 18 "See the Bigger Picture" event, there has been no official word on the launch since then.
