You may want to buy the DJI Mavic 3 Classic instead- because it’s cheaper than the original DJI Mavic 3 that was first released a year ago. The newest DJI Mavic 3 Classic does omit the second camera- the 162mm telephoto lens.
So what do you still have left? The Hasselblad-branded camera with the 4/3rds 20MP sensor and a 24mm lens with a variable aperture (f/2.8 to f/11) is still available. Also, the drone still offers 3x digital zoom even though the 162mm tele lens is no longer there. A decision was taken by the company to reduce costs.
DJI Mavic 3 Classic can shoot photos in 12-bit RAW and videos in 10-bit D-Log. It can record 5.1K video at 24-50fps, DCI 4K at up to 120fps, and 1080p at up to 200fps. Natively, there’s an 8GB of storage that can also be expanded through a microSD card. Additionally, H.264 and H.265 codecs are supported with a 200Mbps bitrate.
Other information here worth noting includes: flight time is up to 46 minutes, and flight distance is up to 30km (18.6mi). The DJI Mavic 3 Classic is compatible with existing DJI RC-N1, RC, and RC Pro controllers. More so, you can transfer HD video at up to 15km.
DJI Mavic 3 Classic price in the US starts at $1,470 for the drone alone. That’s assuming you have the controller already. But if that’s not the case, then the DJI Mavic 3 Classic will cost $1,600 with the RC-N1 controller.
