OnePlus has given users a Hasselblad camera in their hands, and DJI will take it to the sky. According to the source, after the OnePlus 9 smartphones, such a camera will appear in the DJI Mavic 3 Pro drone – it will officially debut in October this year.
The DJI Mavic 3 Pro will be the best drone in the company’s consumer lineup with an inch image sensor, variable aperture and support for 8K video recording. At the same time, the obstacle avoidance system will improve, the camera mount will change and, apparently, there will be a more serious cooling system for the processor.
So, it looks like the Mavic 3 will be released in several versions at once: DJI Mavic 3, DJI Mavic 3 Fly More Combo and DJI Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo. The main differences between them can be seen in the table above.
According to her, rumors about an integrated 1TB SSD in the DJI Mavic 3 Pro are confirmed, but this can be found in the new Cine Premium combo. And it is expected to be $ 1000 more expensive than the base version. And one more innovation that cannot be ignored: the Mavic 3 Pro will be able to charge directly from the USB-C cable – you will not need to take out the battery for charging.
In 2021, a user manual for the remote control for Mavic 3 Pro has already appeared on social networks. According to the information received, the 3rd Mavic will receive a DJI Smart Controller V2.0 with O3 support (OcuSync 3.0). HD video transmission is supported up to 15 km.
The diagonal of the remote control display is 5.5 ″ with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 p, the maximum brightness level is 1000 cd / m2. Battery life – up to 3 hours.
POSSIBLE TECHNICAL UPDATES
Most likely, all the chips of the recently launched DJI Mavic Air 2 will be a new product: OcuSync 2.0, Spotlight 2.0, ActiveTrack 3.0, POI 3.0 and APAS 3.0. It is also expected to support work in two frequencies – 2.4 and 5.8 GHz.
The camera of the Mavic 3 Pro is designed to be the most interesting nuance of the new product. It will certainly be able to shoot 4K / 60fps at 120Mbps (just like the Mavic 2’s camera). Perhaps the new Mavic will be able to show stable 60fps in all camera modes, which cannot yet be done in its predecessor.
As for the flight time, the new product should undoubtedly outperform the DJI Mavic 2 Pro in terms of this indicator. With the Air 2 capable of flying up to 34 minutes, the Mavic 3 Pro may well surpass that figure.
The novelty can also get an AirSense receiver, thanks to which pilots will be able to prevent a collision of copters.
Considering the Air 2S launch in 2020, expect at least OcuSync 3.0, if not the next generation, from the DJI Mavic 3 Pro. At the same time, it is quite possible that Mavic 3 will be compatible with the new Goggles V2.
According to some reports, in 2021, the Mavic 3 Pro will be the first don of the company to be able to shoot video in 8K.
This state of affairs would be quite into the hands of ordinary users of quad technology. Given the competition from copter manufacturer Autel Robotics, this would be a serious response to the Americans. So, their drone EVO II can shoot up to 8K / 25 fps, but its matrix size is 1/2 ″. So it’s possible that the DJI 3 Pro will be able to squeeze the most out of 8K footage with its proprietary 1 ″ sensor.
According to the information from our source, Mavic 3 Pro will receive 2 cameras at once. It’s worth noting that they seem to combine all the capabilities of the previous Pro and Zoom models.
12 MP telephoto f / 4.4 (1/2 ″ optical format CMOS sensor) with a focal length of 160 mm;
20 MP wide-angle with f / 2.8-f / 11 variable aperture (4/3 ″ micro CMOS sensor) and 24 mm focal length.
This camera will also allow you to shoot video at 5.2K resolution (maximum frame rate not specified).
Also, the new product retains all the obstacle avoidance and intelligent flight modes inherent in DJI: Hyperlapse, ActiveTrack, QuickShots, Panorama and even Enhanced PI Assistant. Also, the 3rd Mavic will receive a new data transmission system from the manufacturer O3 (OcuSync 3.0).
The DJI 3 Pro should weigh less than 920 grams (the Mavic 2 Pro weighed 907g), and the maximum flight time is 46 minutes, assuming calm weather and 25 km / h speed. At the same time, the flight range should increase to 15 km (the Mavik 2 Pro had a maximum indicator of 10 km).
