Since its inception, the Mavic 3 series has stood as the flagship product for DJI’s consumer drones. The emergence of the Mavic 3 propelled consumer drones into a new era. As the Mavic 3 discreetly vanished from the official website, DJI’s dual-camera era came to an end. Concurrently, the Mavic 3 Pro, sporting three cameras, made a grand entrance, ushering in the era of triple-camera drones.

Iconic Design, Distinct Features

At first glance, distinguishing the DJI Mavic 3 Pro from other family members can be challenging if one doesn’t focus on the camera unit. The Mavic 3 Pro maintains the consistent design language of the Mavic 3 lineage: the familiar protective casing and almost identical folding and unfolding shapes from most angles. However, the distinctive triple-camera setup sets the Mavic 3 Pro apart, a unique feature in the market.

Launching the Triple-Camera Era

Building upon its predecessor, the Mavic 3 Pro adds a mid-telephoto camera with 48 million pixels and a constant f/2.8 aperture at an equivalent 70mm focal length. This camera utilizes a 1/1.3-inch CMOS, supporting up to 4k 60p video, along with HLG, 10-bit D-Log, and the new 10-bit D-Log M color profiles.

But the upgrades don’t stop there. The telephoto camera on the Mavic 3 Pro has also seen improvements. With an equivalent 166mm focal length, a 1/2-inch CMOS sensor, and 12 million pixels, this 7x optical zoom camera’s aperture has expanded from f/4.4 to f/3.4, enhancing its resolution capabilities. This camera also supports up to 4k 60fps video capture.

Meanwhile, the Hasselblad camera, equipped with a 4/3 CMOS sensor and 24mm equivalent focal length, retains its classic design with 20 million pixels and a variable f/2.8 to f/11 aperture. This camera can capture up to 5.1k 50p or 4k 120p video. Its inherent 12.8 stops of dynamic range, combined with supported HNCS and D-Log/D-Log M color modes, ensure vibrant, professional-quality footage.

Impressive Battery Life

The Mavic 3 Pro’s Fly More Combo package includes three 5000mAh, 77Wh batteries. Each battery allows the Mavic 3 Pro to soar in the skies for 43 minutes. While not the lengthiest on paper, considering takeoffs, landings, and scouting shots, it offers about half an hour of actual shooting time – adequate for most planned professional shoots.

360-Degree Obstacle Avoidance

The Mavic 3 series has always been a leader in obstacle avoidance. The Mavic 3 Pro is no exception, boasting eight sensors capable of recognizing obstacles from all directions – up, down, left, right, front, and back. Through the control menu, operators can customize the Mavic 3 Pro’s behavior when encountering obstacles, choosing to either navigate around or halt. And for those confident in their piloting skills, they can turn off obstacle avoidance for full manual control.

As the newest addition to the flagship series, the Mavic 3 Pro embodies DJI’s cutting-edge drone technology. Beyond its already robust flight, obstacle avoidance, transmission, and battery capabilities seen in its family members, it brings considerable advancements in camera capabilities. For those seeking the most professional drone to realize their creative vision and capture stunning content, the Mavic 3 Pro is undoubtedly the top choice.
