DJI Mavic 3, Mavic 3 Cine Specification
The DJI Mavic 3 and DJI Mavic 3 Cine both come with the same, customized L2D-20c aerial camera that has a 4/3 CMOS sensor with a 24mm prime lens, providing 84-degree field of view. The camera system also has a secondary camera sensor with 28x hybrid zoom and a 162mm telephoto lens with f / 4.4 aperture. Overall, the camera system supports an adjustable aperture of f / 2.8 – f / 11 and a native dynamic range of 12.8 stops. It is powered by Hasselblad software algorithms that enable 20-megapixel still images in 12-bit RAW format and videos at 5.1K at 50fps and 4K at 120fps.
By contrast, the DJI Mavic 3 Cine has Apple ProRes 422 HQ encoding with a maximum data rate of 3772Mbps. The upgraded version also includes a 1TB SSD. On the other hand, the regular Mavic 3 has 8GB of onboard storage.
With the exception of premium video encoding and extra storage space, the Mavic 3 is just like the Cine Mavic 3.
DJI claims that the Mavic 3 provides a deeply accurate color palette that comes from Hasselblad Color Solution (HNCS). The drone has the ability to capture up to one billion colors using 10-bit D-log color profiles.
The Mavic 3 is also capable of shooting video on standard H.264 and H.265 profiles.
In addition to enhanced camera capabilities, the Mavic 3 features APAS 5.0, which accepts input from six fish-eye vision sensors and two wide-angle sensors for continuous barrier sensing. The obstruction sensing system will also receive an upgraded ActiveTrack 5.0 with an update in January that will enable obstruction sensing even in normal mode. It will also help the drone to move forward, backward, left, right and diagonally and fly side by side around a certain moving object.
DJI claims that proprietary technology is able to track and frame the subject even if it moves too fast and temporarily goes out of frame. Further, the drone has an advanced positioning algorithm that helps to improve the accuracy of navigation using GLONASS and BeiDou satellites.
The DJI Mavic 3 has an integrated AirSense system that was unveiled on the DJI Air 2S earlier this year. It warns pilots of nearby airplanes and helicopters sending ADS-B signals to help the drone fly to safety.
To return safely, the Mavic 3 incorporates the company’s in-house Return to Home (RTH) system, which automatically returns the drone to its starting point if the battery runs severely low or loses connection to the controller. It also includes an update to the existing RTH system that enables the new model to determine the shortest, safest and most energy-efficient route to return to its home point.
The Mavic 3 has an upgraded transmission system that helps it fly at a range of 15 kilometers with strong signal interference, DJI said. The drone is the company’s first drone to offer a high frame-rate transmission with 1080p / 60fps live feed using a system called O3 +.
Pilots can capture high-quality video via the Mavic 3, which can be automatically shared with others after automatic editing and dubbing via the Mastershot feature. There’s also a panorama mode that allows images to be sewn and processed directly by drones without using the DJI Fly app or any other post-production solution.
