As the leader in drones, DJI announced its latest model with the Mavic 3. Available in regular and Cine versions, the main upgrade for both Mavic 3 variants is that they now have a 2-camera system for added shooting flexibility.
The main camera is a Micro Four-Thirds 20-megapixel camera with a 24mm focal length and a f/2.8-11 variable aperture. The second camera is a 168mm f/4.4 telephoto camera with up to 28x hybrid zoom. In a nutshell, the Mavic 3 combines both the Mavic 2 Pro and 2 Zoom–but with newer hardware.
The main camera is co-developed with Hasselblad, and can output 20-megapixel images in 12-bit RAW and shoot videos at up to 5.1k at 60FPS or 4K video at 120FPS via a later firmware update. The main camera can shoot a billion colors with its 10-bit D-log color profile.
The second camera, on the other hand, allows for the Mavic 3 to capture more dynamic shots. To ensure all shots stay sharp, DJI claims that the Vision Detection feature of the Mavic 3 will utilize multiple vision sensors to capture all the data it needs for optimal autofocus speeds.
The higher-end Cine version adds a built-in 1TB SSD drive and supports Apple’s ProRes 422 HQ video recording–making it geared more towards professionals. Other improvements to the Mavic 3 include up to 46 minutes fly time and 35% less drag with its more streamlined design. It can also operate up to 15 kilometers while providing a 1080p60 feed to the controller.
There are also a number of intelligent features like MasterShots for ease of creating high-quality content, 100MP Panorama mode for hi-res panoramic shots, Trimmed download for exporting only specific sections of a video clip, and Quick Transfer for transmitting materials to mobile devices via WiFi 6.
Accessories for the Mavic 3 include a smart controller, portable charger, carrying case, wide-angle-lens adapter, storage cover, ND filter set, and a high-speed data cable.
