DJI has recently released the Mavic 3 Pro, a drone with three cameras to capture footage in different focal lengths to support multiple photography situations.

The Mavic 3 Pro enables creators to explore their creativity thanks to its Hasselblad camera, two telephoto cameras, 43-minute maximum flying time, Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing, and nine-mile HD Video Transmission. The triple-camera system has focal lengths of 24mm, 70mm, and 166mm.

The Mavic 3 Pro inherits the 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera from the Mavic 3 Series. The Hasselblad camera captures great image details with a natural dynamic range of up to 12.8 stops and can capture 12-bit RAW images.

The Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) can also accurately restore colors that represent what a human eye sees.

Up to one billion colors can be recorded using the new 10-bit D-Log M color mode. It provides natural color gradations with fine details for a full-spectrum visual experience, even in high-contrast situations like sunrises and sunsets.

The D-Log M mode simplifies color grading, enabling post-production without sacrificing quality or image clarity.

All three cameras support Apple ProRes 422 HQ, Apple ProRes 422, and Apple ProRes 422 LT encoding, and it has a built-in 1TB SSD with a 10Gbps data cable for fast file transfers.

The medium telephoto camera has a 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor and 3x optical zoom, making it ideal for framing buildings and capturing cars in commercial shoots. It can take up to 48MP photos and 4K video at 60fps.




The third camera also supports 4K video at 60fps, capable of 7x optical zoom and 12MP photos. A hybrid zoom feature can reach up to 28x, making it a good option for recording animals at a safe distance without disturbing them.

Pricing & Availability

The DJI Mavic 3 Pro is available to purchase for $2,199 through DJI and on Amazon, and with Adorama, and starts shipping in May. People can also buy it in various combo packs that include accessories.

Accessories include batteries, a charging hub, neutral density filters, and an upgraded drone featuring a 1080p display. The most expensive combo set is $4,799 that includes a DJI RC Pro, Mavic 3 Pro, and a 1TB SSD.

    DJI is blacklisted by the Department of Defense as part of its Chinese military companies list. No, thanks. I won't support the PLA.

    I believe they were blacklisted as a supplier to the PLA for use in surveillance of the Uyghur population, not that they are owned by the PLA.

    That’s completely political.  They are the best drones on the market without a doubt. And you have no problem supporting apple, which provides support by orders of magnitude.

    EVERY tech company has some sort of tie in to China’s infrastructure and consequently their military. I buy Apple even though they are built in factories that pay their workers pathetic wages by our standards, but Apple’s investment has brought up the living standards there too. As for DJI, they are one of the reasons Ukraine is beating the Russians. The affordability and performance of their drones makes them a unique weapon that’s changed war tactics. I support and buy DJI.

    DJI makes drones. Your Department of Defense may blacklist all manner of companies. That doesn't mean they are actually guilty of absolutely anything underhand. It just means they are on a blacklist.

    Why this news is censored in the US? Is it really 'true'?

    It’s true but I have no idea if it's censored in the US. 

    The effectiveness of consumer grade drones is now waning though, as the Russians step up their game in blocking communications with them.

    DJI sells drones to arm Russia, too. Illegally, I might add.

    Particularly problematic for the United States government is DJI, the maker of hovering quadcopter drones that have become emblematic of a new type of warfare in Ukraine. Sales of its drones to Russia have continued, even though it has said it suspended shipments to both Russia and Ukraine. The company is already the target of U.S. export controls.

    All drones can do what DJI drones can do. Is that right? Why NYT single out DJI?
