DJI’s new Mavic 3 Pro has three cameras – 4/3 24mm, 70mm and 166mm
DJI today announced the Mavic 3 Pro – an evolution of the Mavic 3 with a better telephoto lens and a new mid-range zoom camera. It is also the first drone with a triple camera system.
The main sensor is the same huge Hasselblad 20MP Four Thirds 24mm camera with variable f/2.8-11 aperture as the Mavic 3. It’s capable of ProRes 5.1k (5120x2700px) video at up to 50fps, as well as DCI 4K (4096x2160px) and standard 4K (3840x2160px) up to 120fps in 10-bit D-Log.
The main sensor brings 12.8 stops of dynamic range and Hasselblad’s HNCS (Natural Color Solution) color science, which the iconic brand claims will deliver accurate colors right out of the box.
There’s a new mid-range 48MP 1/1.3″ 70mm f/2.8 3x telephoto lens with 4K video up to 60fps and 10-bit D-Log. It can also take 12MP stills.
The third camera is a 12MP 1/2″ 7x 166mm f/3.4 telephoto lens with 4K support up to 60fps. In contrast, the Mavic 3 had a 162mm zoom with an f/4.4 aperture. This sensor is also capable 10-bit video capture in Apple ProRes or 8-bit H.264/H.265.
The three-camera system is mounted on a mechanical 3-axis gimbal stabilizing tilt, roll and pan. The Mavic 3 Pro comes with omnidirectional sensors to avoid obstacles from all angles.
The new drone also supports DJI’s latest O3+ transmission, which supports 1080/60p live streaming up to 15 kilometers away (although you should have the drone in sight at all times).
The drone will stay in the air for up to 43 minutes – like the Mavic 3.
The Mavic 3 Pro has all of DJI’s smart features – Waypoint Flight (where you preset a flight path), Cruise Control (the drone flies in any direction without stick input), Advanced Return to home (the drone will return towards you while avoiding obstacles enabled), FocusTrack (the main and medium telephoto can follow a predefined object in the frame), QuickShots (Dronie, Rocket, Circle, Helix), as well as MasterShots, where the drone will automatically shoot and edit a video .
The DJI Mavic 3 Pro is $2,199/€2,099 with the DJI RC Controller, the Fly More Combo with the RC Controller is $2,999/€2,799, and the Fly More Combo with the RD Pro Controller is 3,899 $/€3,499. There’s also a DJI Mavic 3 Pro Cone with an integrated 1TB SSD that comes in a Fly More Combo with the RC Pro Controller for $4,799/€4,599.
