DJI Mavic 3 Features Leaked

DJI Mavic 3 drone features were revealed ahead of the launch on November 15.

DJI Mavic 3 specs were leaked ahead of the official reveal. According to leaks from DroneDJ and Jasper Ellens, DJI’s upcoming Mavic 3 Pro drone model will offer a major upgrade over its predecessor. The product is said to come with not just one, but a telephoto model and two cameras with larger Four Thirds sensors, providing a significantly longer flight time.

The Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom will let you choose between a larger sensor or a 24-48mm equivalent zoom, while the new model will offer both in a single drone. According to the reported information, it comes with two separate cameras, including a 20-megapixel, 24mm f/2.8-f/11 primary camera with a Four Thirds sensor and a 160mm-equivalent 12-megapixel, 1/2-inch sensor secondary camera.

The Four Thirds sensor will offer a huge advantage for aerial imaging, providing extra detail and a more cinematic look overall. Shooting in this format currently requires a large, relatively expensive drone and in most cases a separate camera such as DJI’s Zenmuse series or Panasonic’s BGH1. At the same time, a second telephoto camera will make the drone more versatile.

You will not need to remove the battery, as the model will offer direct USB-C charging. All this will add a little bit of weight up to 920g. Despite this disadvantage due to the extra camera and other new features, the Mavic 3 will be able to fly for 15 minutes more than the Mavic 2’s 31 minutes.

The Mavic 3 will apparently come in two variants, a Pro and Cine model, with the latter offering a built-in SSD and a “1 Gbps Lightspeed Data Cable” option for faster transfers. Additionally, the model will feature a new version of DJI’s display-equipped Smart Controller that allows video transmission from 10km to 15km on the Mavic 2 Pro.

Both sources say the Mavic 3 Pro will cost $1,600, which is the same price as the current Mavic 2 Pro. Prices for the Cine model are uncertain, but could be around $1,000 more. Both models are expected to arrive on November 15.
