New Mavic Drone released by DJI

One of the most eagerly awaited Drone releases has arrived. It’s two. The Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine were announced today by DJI. There are a few key differences between the two new Drone, but let’s start with the one designated for the Mavic 3 Cine, which costs $4,999. The Cine model can shoot Apple ProRes 422 HQ footage at 5.1K up to 50FPS and features a 1TB SSD that is built-in but not user-replaceable. The $2,199 Mavic 3 lacks ProRes and a built-in SSD, but it does have the same dual-camera system with a 4/3 CMOS sensor.

Both Drone can shoot 4K video at up to 120 frames per second and take 20MP photographs. A hybrid zoom lens with 28x digital zoom is available in addition to the regular 24mm lens. That translates to 162mm at f/4.4 in focal length terms. In addition, both feature 46-minute batteries, which is a substantial improvement over the Mavic 2’s 31-minute battery and even the Mavic Air 2s & 2S, which could fly for 34 and 31 minutes, respectively, on a single charge.

The two Drone are the successors of DJI’s Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom, which were debuted in 2018 and included the first Hasselblad camera used in a DJI after the firm purchased a majority share in it in 2017. However, until now, we haven’t seen much Hasselblad branding on DJI goods since 2018.

DJI is also incorporating Hasselblad Natural Color Solution, which promises wonderfully natural colors right out of the camera, as it was in 2018. If you don’t want to use the Mavic 3’s built-in color profile, you can shoot footage in 10-bit D-log for additional color adjustment in post-production. You can film in conventional H.264 and H.265 profiles in addition to ProRes; however, there is no HDR video on this Drone.
