Huge Chinese tech company DJI is well known for its cool products and innovative gadgets. Its range of drones have always made headlines – and the recently released DJI Mavic 3 is no exception. Aimed squarely at the top end of the consumer drone market, it is packed full of new features which show why DJI is such a huge tech name.
DJI Mavic 3 – what does it bring to the table?
Flight time specs are always key to any drone and this is true for DJI’s new flagship product. With a run time of 46 minutes, it goes a full 10 minutes past how long the Mavic 2 Pro could fly for. For those who purchase the Fly More combo, you get extra batteries plus a pack to keep them in. This high-end drone also includes APAS 5.0 tech which sees the Mavic 3 sense obstacles as it flies, in order to smoothly avoid them. To do this, multiple wide-angle sensors combine with the drone’s vision computing engine to plan the safest flight path available.
There is also a feature that sees the drone return to the home point (as long as the light is adequate) in the event of signal loss or user command. Updates to this auto-return function also enable the machine to work out the quickest route back to the home point.
Next level imagery with Mavic 3 from DJI
The standout new feature in terms of image capture is the Hasselblad L2D-20x camera system. This contains a 20MP main wide-angle camera and a telephoto 12MP camera. In addition, this system can capture 24-200 frames per second HD video and 120 frames per second 4K video. If you want ultra-sharp images in 5.1k, the Mavic 3 can handle it at 50 frames per second. For the best images, the telephoto camera comes with a 28x hybrid zoom and 4x digital zoom. There is also Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution tech to enjoy. This gives natural, vivid and vibrant colours to any images you capture.
