Mavic 3 Camera Options
Mavic 3 Cine Vs Mavic 3 - Camera Options
The Mavic 3 Cine is a version with Apple ProRes 422 HQ encoding for a maximum data rate of 3772Mbps, giving professional users a powerful tool to satisfy post-production needs in their daily business.
DJI Mavic 3 Cine supports Apple ProRes 422 HQ and H.264/H.265 encoding, while DJI Mavic 3 supports H.264/H.265 encoding only.
The 3772Mbps data rate is possible only while recording in the Apple ProRes 422 HQ codec at 4K/120fps.
To handle the large amounts of data from the ProRes codec and high frame rate videos, Mavic 3 Cine comes with a built-in 1TB SSD.
For a smoother export experience, the new DJI 10Gbps Lightspeed Data Cable helps transfer large data files rapidly. This comes as part of the Cine Combo, but is available separately.
Mavic 3 Design And Performance
Up to 46m maximum flight time and 46.9mph top speed.
The Mavic 3 is a foldable and portable drone.
DJI has developed more efficient motors and propellers and reduced the weight of the drone’s structure and hardware.
The drone can fly for up to 46 minutes and can achieve a 30km maximum flight distance per battery charge.
The streamlined design of the Mavic 3 has reduced the overall drag by 35%, compared to the previous generation, resulting in greatly improved speeds. The Mavic 3 can reach a top speed of 46.9 mph (21m/s) in S Mode.
Mavic 3 Safety Features
The DJI Mavic 3 has improved obstacle sensing and navigation systems, upgraded tracking capabilities, DJI AirSense, and an Advanced Return to Home function.
APAS 5.0: Combines inputs from six fish-eye vision sensors and two wide-angle sensors which sense obstacles in all directions and plan safe flight routes to avoid them. APAS 5.0 is most effective when flying under adequate lighting conditions.
ActiveTrack 5.0: This upgraded tracking mode enables the Mavic 3 to move with the subject as it moves forward, backward, left, right, and diagonally, and fly alongside as well as around a moving subject. It can also pick an object back up if it temporarily disappears from the frame. ActiveTrack 5.0 will be available on a future firmware update.
Advanced Return To Home: This upgraded version of RTH enables the drone to automatically determine the shortest, safest, and energy-efficient route to land back at its home point, also taking into account the wind speed and power required to RTH. This provides more time flying safely before triggering the RTH action.
Powerful Positioning Algorithm: Improved hovering precision with signals from GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellites. This makes Mavic 3 less likely to drift in the air and more stable when shooting long exposures and timelapses.
DJI AirSense: Integrated AirSense system to warn drone pilots of nearby manned aviation transmitting ADS-B signals.
Geofencing And Altitude Limits: Alerts when flying near to sensitive locations and altitude limits.
Mavic 3 Upgraded Transmission System
DJI O3+: Upgraded transmission system delivering stable, smooth, and clear video transmission and makes the drone more responsive to your control.
Fly Further: Maximum control range of 15km (FCC) or 12km (CE) enables the drone to fly further and transmit signals with higher stability and less video lag.
High Frame-Rate Transmission: Mavic 3 is DJI’s first drone that offers a High Frame-Rate Transmission with a 1080p/60fps live feed. This means the camera view is displayed at a resolution close to what the camera actually records.
DJI RC Pro Controller
A New Generation Of Smart Controller
There are two controllers for the Mavic 3: The new RC Pro Controller, as well as the standard RC-N1 Remote Controller.
The new RC Pro Controller offers a smoother control experience and is upgraded with enhanced antenna power for an extended transmission distance.
It features a 1000-nit high-bright screen which allows better vision and control for outdoor flights.
Its battery system offers an extended operating time of up to three hours and can be charged in 90 minutes.
The RC Pro Controller comes as part of the Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo, and is also available as a separate accessory. The RC-N1 Remote Controller is included in the Mavic 3 standard package and Mavic 3 Fly More Combo.
Mavic 3 Shooting Modes
New DJI Intelligent Shooting Modes for the Mavic 3.
The Mavic 3 features an array of intelligent modes for creating and editing compelling photos and videos.
MasterShots: Automatic editing and dubbing in the app to quickly create high-quality content which can be shared.
WayPoints 3.0: Helps content creators who are repeatedly filming the same place. They are also able to share their videos on social media platforms with other users.
Panorama Mode: Mavic 3 allows pictures to be directly stitched and processed by the drone, without the DJI Fly App or any post-production, allowing users to capture breathtaking landscapes with sweeping breadth and rich detail.
QuickTransfer: Lets users store and process materials on their mobile devices without linking with the remote controller. Mavic 3 can transmit materials from the drone to the mobile device more quickly through the WiFi 6 protocol.
Please note that the intelligent shooting modes will be available on a future firmware update in Jan 2022.
DJI Mavic 3 Accessories
The DJI Mavic 3 features a range of accessories. These include:
DJI 65W Portable Charger: Fast-charging option with a charging time of approximately 96 minutes and is compatible with current notebooks and smartphones via its USB Type-C output.
DJI Convertible Carrying Bag: New design with a backpack and shoulder bag configuration, offering plenty of space for the drone, accessories and other items.
DJI Mavic 3 Wide-Angle Lens: Provides a 108° FOV for a more immersive FPV-style flight experience.
DJI Mavic 3 Storage Cover: Lightweight, minimalist design to protect the camera, gimbal, and propellers when folding and transporting Mavic 3.
DJI ND Filters Set: Two options - ND4/8/16/32 and ND64/128/256/512 - which enables the camera to excel in any bright-lighting condition.
DJI 10Gbps Lightspeed Data Cable: Download material from the drone to a computer at high speed. Material backup is available on-site, thanks to high-speed transmission.
