Pushing the realms of next-level imaging performance concerning drone cameras, DJI has released a novel triple-camera setup with its Mavic 3 Pro, equipped with a Hasselblad camera and dual telephoto lenses.
The flagship drone’s triple camera combination lets content creators switch between shot compositions with just one tap, resulting in a wider variety of shots in less time. Lenses with multiple focal lengths (24mm/70mm/166mm) provide multi-scenario capabilities, be it capturing the “environment with the wide-angle, moving into a specific location with the medium tele and then focusing on a particular area or character,” said a blog post.
Advanced Hasselblad camera offers rich images
The 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera on offer with the Mavic 3 Pro supports shooting 12-bit RAW photos with a “native dynamic range” and efficient post-production without losing image quality or clarity.
Professional creators can make use of Mavic 3 Pro’s cameras that support Apple ProRes 422 HQ, Apple ProRes 422, and App dynamic range of up to 12.8 stops. Additionally, the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) enables it to process colors organically, eliminating the need for heavy post-production or complex color presets. The primary lens also offers professional video specifications with image capture supported up to 5.1K at 50fps or DCI 4K at 120fps. The new 10-bit D-Log M color mode offered by DJI supports recording up to one billion colors, ensuring “natural color gradations with delicate details for a full-spectrum visual experience.” A 1TB SSD and a 10Gbps lightspeed data cable also help to smoothen the processing and editing of images.
Telelenses offer advanced subject framing and zoom capabilities
The medium tele camera suits various themes and scenes. The 1/1.3″ CMOS sensor offers 3x optical zoom and is capable of generating 48MP/12MP photos, 4K/60fps video, and supports the new D-log M. The camera ensures that creators can produce the perfect Hyperlapse videos.
The upgraded tele camera on the Mavic 3 Pro features higher resolution and a wider f/3.4 aperture. “It supports shooting 4K/60fps video with 7x optical zoom and 12MP photos.” With a hybrid zoom of up to 28x, the drone can safely keep a good distance from its subject and still capture rich images.
Extended range and safety on offer
The new iteration from DJI now offers 43 minutes of flight time, letting users explore and experiment with their work, from flight route planning to shot composition, all during a single flight.
In terms of advanced safety while in motion, eight wide-angle vision sensors feed data to a high-performance vision computing engine to “precisely sense obstacles in all directions and plan a safe flight route to avoid them.”
A signal transmission distance of up to 15 km is supported by the Mavic 3 Pro, and it can transmit a 1080p/60fps HD live feed, making it more responsive and providing a vibrant video feed onto the monitor.
