DJI Mavic 3 Overview
Geared towards professional content creation, the Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo from DJI adds the ability to use the Apple ProRes 422 HQ codec, and it bumps the internal storage from 8GB to a monster 1TB SSD. Outside of that, the Cine Premium sports the same impressive dual cameras in the drone’s 3-axis gimbal. One is a 20MP wide-angle camera with 4/3″ CMOS and 4x digital zoom from legendary camera maker Hasselblad. The other is a 12MP telephoto with 1/2″ CMOS, 4K video, 7x optical, and up to 28x digital zoom. You can utilize this in Explore Mode to scout locations, but primarily in conjunction with the wide-angle Hasselblad, transitioning between the two for truly dynamic, cinematic results.
The video quality of the wide-angle Hasselblad on the Mavic 3 Cine Premium offers up to 5.1K resolution and DCI 4K at 120 fps. The 12.8 stops of dynamic range and an adjustable aperture from f/2.8 to f/11 open up the drone’s ability to handle nearly any lighting condition and deliver low-light footage with less noise. Add in vision sensor-based VDAF focusing and an 84° FOV, and you can capture sweeping, atmospheric shots or track and focus on subjects with ease. To complete the Mavic 3’s powerful imaging abilities, 10-bit D-Log Color Profile and Hasselblad’s NCS (Natural Color Solution) are employed for natural and accurate color reproduction.
To support these exceptional imaging capabilities and the pilots who will capture them, DJI packed the Mavic 3 Cine Premium with technologies to get the most out of each shoot. Multiple features allow you to create flight paths, auto-track subjects, and perform complex aerial maneuvers with a tap. While doing all of this, an omnidirectional obstacle sensing system and APAS 5.0 work to ensure a collision-free flight. Add in up to 46 minutes of flight time, a transmission range of up to 9.3 miles, and a folding design, and you have a powerful platform that’s ideal for everything from tech-obsessed amateur photographers to professional production houses.
