DJI, everyone’s favored tech giant in the drone industry, offers another great drone option — the Mavic 3 Pro.

What makes technology better every year is its integration of portability and accessibility with high-quality design and optics — and DJI excels at this every year. Because drones often feel intimidating to the average creator, their innovative iterations and features make flying easier, more fun, and at a higher resolution with every upgrade.

Its latest triple-lens technology, featuring a 24mm, 70mm(3x Zoom), and 166mm (7x Zoom) focal length, makes this machine a real game-changer in aerial photography and videography. Outfitted with a state-of-the-art Hasselblad camera and a pair of telephoto lenses, the Mavic 3 Pro is the ultimate triple-camera drone. This cutting-edge tool enables users to push their boundaries of creative expression through otherworldly aerial landscapes through innovative visual storytelling.

Thus, if you’re new to the drone world and are looking for an elevated capturing device to get the job done right, this bad boy might be your best bet. The Mavic 3 Pro’s quality suffices for professionals, but its ease of application is perfect for beginners.

What It Does

To compare it to the previous Pro model, the Mavic 3 Pro is slightly larger than the Mavic 2 Pro, with a longer wingspan, larger camera module, and broader tilt functionality.

With its DJI O3+ technology, the Mavic 3 Pro offers a remarkable transmission distance of up to 15 km[3], ensuring stable signals and a seamless LCD view. It delivers a 1080p/60fps HD live feed with high frame rates, making the drone more responsive to your commands by providing a vivid video feed on your display.

The Waypoint Flight feature is an ear-parker; the Mavic 3 Pro intelligently plots a flight route based on your predefined waypoints and can accurately replicate routes as needed.

Lastly, the Mavic 3 Pro's Hasselblad camera and medium telephoto lens come equipped with FocusTrack, featuring ActiveTrack 5.0, Spotlight, and Point of Interest. This powerful trio enables you to capture dynamic tracking shots from various angles with remarkable stability.

Insane Optics

If a drone has a Hasselblad lens, you know it will be damn good.

Taking the reins from the Mavic 3 Series, the Mavic 3 Pro brings the legendary 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera with stunning 12-bit RAW photos, revealing every intricate detail of each image without squinting. With a dynamic range of up to 12.8 stops, the depth you can capture is almost beyond comprehension. Each pixel’s clarity is consistently meticulous in DJI’s Mavic lineup.

And to the reliable Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS), the colors in your images are precisely what the human eye sees, so there's no need to spend hours tweaking color settings in post-production. Simply point, shoot, and viola.

New Heights for Video Quality

Beyond the punny headlines for DJI’s product hooks, the Mavic 3 Pro’s video capabilities are evermore stunning.

Its latest 10-bit D-Log M color mode iteration supports recording up to one billion colors — can you even comprehend that? Even in high-contrast scenarios, like sunrises and sunsets, it delivers natural color gradations with delicate details for a full-spectrum visual experience. In turn,DJI’s D-Log M mode further reduces the difficulty of color grading, allowing creators to hone in on natural tones effortlessly without spending hours in the edit cave.
