It feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve told you about a new drone.
And, even then, usually, we're telling you about how new products can’t be found in the market, due to shortages of chips or some other important component.
Either way, it is refreshing to talk about new tech that’s on its way. It makes everything feel somewhat normal again.
Of course, with all of the controversy surrounding DJI, who knows what the future holds but, for now, it looks like we’re going to get a new drone in the Mavic line.
Sporting a three-camera array, the new DJI Mavic 3 Pro drone looks set to be the new standard for photographers in this space.
As mentioned above, the three cameras include a wide angle and two telephoto cameras. The main camera is a Hasselblad 4/3 20-megapixel camera with a 24 mm equivalent lens. The second is a 70 mm equivalent 48-megapixel camera with an F/2.8 aperture. As for the telephoto camera, it is a 166 mm equivalent 12-megapixel camera with an F/3.4 aperture, PopPhoto reports.
In terms of performance, it will have 43 minutes of flight time, Apple ProRes support, video transmission up to 15 km, 5.1 K video up to 50 frames per second, or 4K video up to 120 frames per second. The upgraded Pro Cine model offers one terabyte of storage.
Pre-orders for the drone are available now with a starting price of $USD 2199. That’s a little on the pricey side as more than a few people have pointed out but the performance and capabilities should more than make it worth it.
