DJI launches Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine aircraft

DJI is best known for its drones, but it is perhaps the most innovative camera company. After launching the Ronin 4K full-frame camera last month, it has now launched a $2,200 Mavic 3 drone with two innovative camera systems.

The Mavic 3 series includes two models, the Standard and Cine, as well as the Fly More series, which includes more accessories.

The main difference is that the $5,000 Mavic 3 Cine has a built-in 1TB SSD hard drive and supports ProRes 422 HQ video recording for professional 5.1K movie production at 50 fps.

The Mavic 3, which is cheaper at $2199, doesn't come standard with ProRes or an integrated SSD. However, they share the same dual camera system, which is powered by a 4/3 CMOS sensor.

Both devices are capable of 4K recording speeds of up to 120fps and 20MP.

In addition to the main 24mm lens, there is also a hybrid zoom lens with 28x digital zoom. In terms of focal length, this corresponds to 162mm at f/4.4.

Both devices have a flight time of 46 minutes, which is a huge improvement over the Mavic 2's 31 minutes.

Most Expensive $5000 Plan

These two drones are the successor to the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom released by DJI in 2018. After the latter took a majority stake in the company in 2017, it also launched its first drone for use in a DJI camera.

But we haven't seen many Hasselblad brands in DJI products since 2018. As in 2018, DJI includes Hasselblad Natural Color Solutions, which promise natural colors straight from the camera.

If you don't want the built-in color profile. The Mavic 3 can also capture 10-bit D-Log images for better color control in post-production.

In addition to ProRes encryption, you can also use standard H.264 and H.265 profiles for recording. But there is no HDR video on this plane.

In addition to all the improvements to the camera, DJI has also upgraded the standalone functions of the Mavic 3. It has a versatile obstacle sensor and can even detect objects up to 200 meters away.

Advanced RTH (Home), APAS 5.0 and ActiveTrack 5.0 contain some new improvements. Advanced RTH can help the aircraft plan a smarter route to the launch site.

The updated APAS 5.0 system improves flight safety by using inputs from six fisheye vision sensors and two wide-angle sensors for obstacle detection and avoidance.

ActiveTrack 5.0 includes new options for tracking objects no matter how they move. If it leaves the frame, it can also follow the object and retrieve it again when it appears again.

Both planes are also equipped with an updated version of the company's OcuSync 3+ transmission technology, which promises 60fps real-time transmission over 15km and 1080p resolution to your smartphone or console.

Three packages to choose from

If you are interested in purchasing this aircraft, there are three packages to choose from. The Standard Edition includes a plane, belt, remote control, charger, extra set of propellers, and a joystick and costs $2,200.

The Fly More Combo adds two extra batteries, a charging station, four sets of fans, a backpack that can also be converted into a backpack, and a set of ND filters (ND4, ND8, ND16, and ND32) for $3000.

The final package is Cine Premium Combo. However, unless you spend more money on the Mavic 3 Cine Edition, you won't be able to purchase the accessories that came with it. Including the new DJI RC Pro remote control.

The Cine Premium Kit also includes a set of additional ND filters (ND64, ND128, ND256 and ND512). This is not in the Fly More Combo. The Cine Premium Combo package is $5,000.
