according to DroneDJ,Jasper Ellens According to the latest information, DJI’s upcoming Mavic 3 series will be significantly upgraded compared to the previous generation. The factory made two models on Mavic 2 to meet the needs of different users for large-size photoreceptors and zoom lenses. But in this generation, the two features have been combined into one. The Mavic 3 series is said to be equipped with a 20MP M4/3 photoreceptor and a 12MP 1/2-inch photoreceptor, supplemented by 24mm f/2.8-f. /11 main camera lens and equivalent 160mm sub-camera zoom lens.

Generally speaking, if you want to use M4/3 in the sky, most of you need to purchase a relatively larger and more expensive aerial camera, as well as specialized camera systems such as DJI Zenmuse and Panasonic BGH1. It would be a blessing to the mass consumers if DJI can make such a configuration on the Mavic, not to mention that there are zoom cameras to cope with different shooting scenarios. In addition, it is rumored that the battery life of the new machine can reach 46 minutes, which is a significant increase from 31 minutes of the previous generation, and it supports USB-C charging. Of course, correspondingly, the body will become heavier, but the increase from 907g to 920g should be acceptable.

According to the source, Mavic 3 will be divided into two versions, Pro and Cine. The latter will also have a built-in SSD and support “1Gbps ultra-high-speed cable transmission.” Not surprisingly, DJI will also update the controller this time. The image transmission distance of the new version has increased to 15 kilometers, which is 1.5 times that of the previous generation. In terms of price, it is said that the Mavic 3 Pro will remain at $1,600 like the Mavic 2 Pro. The Cine version may be added with an additional $1,000 on this basis. The launch date may be November 15th.
