DJI has unveiled their latest drone with the new Mavic 3.
“Creating the Mavic 3 was an arduous journey for our engineers who tackled complex technical problems to serve the goal that the Mavic series has always met – build professional-quality imaging and flight technology into a compact consumer drone,” said Ferdinand Wolf, Creative Director, DJI Europe. “The result is incredible. Mavic 3 enables users to effortlessly make epic shots without compromising on small size, stunning performance, pervasive flight safety, and dazzling image quality. We are confident that this drone will astonish videography and photography enthusiasts, as well as professional production houses and media workers around the globe.”
The drone uses a 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera and zoom lens that can go up to 28x hybrid zoom (optical and digital).
You’ll be able to shoot 5.1K video at 50 fps or 4K 120fps video. It also shoots 20MP still images in 12-bit RAW.
There’s also support for Apple ProRes 422 HQ encoding on the Mavic 3 Cine that has a built in 1TB SSD.
The drone comes with a number of modes and features including:
- MasterShots: Lets users create high-quality content more easily and quickly. After automatic editing and dubbing in the app, videos can be created in minutes and directly shared with friends.
- Panorama Mode: Mavic 3 allows pictures to be directly stitched and processed by the drone, without the DJI Fly App or any post-production, allowing users to capture breathtaking landscapes with sweeping breadth and rich detail.
- QuickTransfer: Lets users store and process materials on their mobile devices without linking with the remote controller. Mavic 3 can now transmit materials from the drone to the mobile device more quickly through the Wi-Fi 6 protocol.
The Mavic 3 also brings DJI O3+ which brings the maximum transmission range of the drone to 15 KM.
The drone also features the company’s integrated AirSenses system, first introduced in the Air 2S. Flight time is up 46 mins on the Mavic 3.
