Despite recent leaks and rumors painting a very vivid picture of DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone new drone, it’s always a thrilling time when a new product is finally released. Pre-orders for the DJI Mini 3 Pro are now open, with delivery due later this month. However, before you buy the drone, here are the top ten things you should know.
DJI has obviously put a lot of thought into what an ultra-lightweight aerial camera can accomplish. The DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone is a little, powerful drone with a wide range of imaging capabilities, superb flight performance, and a variety of clever shoot modes that let you fly small yet produce large. Let’s get directly to the meat of the matter.
It Is Under 250 Grams In Weight
In many countries and regions, aviation safety standards consider drones weighing less than 250 grams to be the safest. The Mini 3 Pro weighs in at only 249 grams. Its unique combination of weight, safety, and performance makes it an exciting new alternative for content creators, explorers, and first-time pilots.
It Has Incredible Power For Its Tiny
Like its predecessors, the Mavic Mini, Mini 2, and Mini SE, the Mini 3 Pro preserves its compact foldability for packing and transporting anywhere. However, this drone has more built-in features than any other DJI drone of comparable size, including improved flight performance, camera system, battery life, and intelligence functions previously only accessible in the Air and Mavic series.
A Complete Makeover For A Mini Drone
The DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone is a significant departure from the previous Mini models. It now has a fully new structural design that improves performance in various ways.
The propellers and arms have been altered for better aerodynamic flight, which extends the flight time. The new design also includes forward and backward dual-vision sensors at the front of the drone, extending the sensing range and making flight even safer. A completely redesigned gimbal allows for more camera angles than ever before, including tilt-up shots and vertical shooting.
The First Mini With APAS And Focustrack Integration
The DJI Mini 3 Pro is the first drone in the Mini-series to include Tri-Directional Obstacle Sensing, which includes forward, backward, and downward optical sensors. The forward and downward sensors offer a broader field of view, allowing for more seamless route planning and environmental awareness.
Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) 4.0, which detects and finds a safer path around obstructions during flying, is also enabled by these sensors. Furthermore, these sensors enable the whole FocusTrack suite, which allows you to choose a topic that the drone will automatically keep in the centre of the frame while flying while calculating a safe flight route.
New Camera System For High-Definition Video
A 1/1.3-inch CMOS camera sensor with dual native ISO powers the Mini 3 Pro’s advanced image system, which is normally associated with cinema and some micro single cameras. It also features an f/1.7 aperture and can capture photos up to 48MP (RAW support) and video at up to 4K/60fps.
Meanwhile, the camera flips 90 degrees for True Vertical Shooting to assist social media video makers raise their game. This way, you may take stunning portrait shots and movies without sacrificing image quality through image zooming and cropping.
HDR video recording at frame rates up to 30fps is offered for the most vivid detail. D-Cinelike offers for greater post-processing options, while a Normal colour profile is offered for rapid in-app editing. In 4K, digital video zoom can be up to 2x, 3x in 2.7K, and 4x in Full HD.
With 2.4m pixels that capture more image detail, the DJI Mini 3 Pro also improves image performance, which is especially useful in low light and at night.
DJI’s First Drone With An Extended Flying Battery
Despite the Mini 3 Pro’s low weight of 249 grams, DJI has managed to extend its flight time. The Mini 3 Pro can capture more landscapes and destinations on a single battery, with a maximum flight time of 34 minutes.
The O3 transmission system, which gives a sharp 1080p live picture from a distance of up to 12 kilometers, goes wonderfully with this extended flying time.
Intelligent Photography And Videography Features
The DJI Mini 3 Pro includes a full suite of intelligent capturing modes from DJI’s more expensive Air and Mavic series, making it the drone to buy right now. You can do the following with just one tap.
Dronie: The camera is fixated on the subject as the aircraft glides back and forth.
Helix: An aircraft rises above the subject and spirals around it.
The camera is facing down as the rocket takes off.
The subject is circled by an aircraft.
Boomerang: An aircraft flies in an elliptical path around the subject, ascending as it leaves and falling as it returns.
Asteroid: The aircraft creates a shot that starts with a sphere panorama high above the target and concludes with a regular shot hovering near the subject.
Maintains the subject in the centre of the frame while performing a series of motions to create a brief cinematic video.
Creates a dynamic timelapse in which the aircraft follows predetermined courses while being captured.
Multiple Remote Controllers Are Supported
While we appreciate that many first-time drone users will be interested in purchasing the Mini 3 Pro, this drone is also a great upgrade for Mavic Mini, Mini SE, and Mini 2 owners. And it’s for this reason that DJI chose to accommodate everyone’s wants by making the Mini 3 Pro compatible with both the new DJI RC and the RC-N1 remote that current Mini owners currently hold.
The new DJI RC is lightweight and has a 5.5-inch built-in touchscreen, so you won’t grow bored of carrying it. You don’t need to mount your smartphone to the controller because it’s fully linked with the DJI Fly app. It’s also worth noting that DJI intends to expand the compatibility of this controller in the future.
