The DJI Mavic 3 lineup is growing. Following the success of the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine last year, DJI has now released the Mavic 3 Classic .
DJI Mavic 3 Classic Features
The Mavic 3 Classic still shares the same design and features as the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine. The difference is only in the camera. The Mavic 3 Classic only features one Hasselblad camera module. There is no camera module with a telephoto lens like the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine
This camera module comes with a 4/3 CMOS sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixels. Right in front of the sensor is a lens with a focal length of 24mm with an F/2.8 diaphragm. To record video, the Mavic 3 Classic camera can record videos up to 5.1K/50p and 4K/60p resolutions. The video mode is also supported by the ability to record 10-bit D-Log and can shoot 12-bit RAW.
Like the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine, the Mavic 3 Classic carries O3+ transmission technology. This technology allows streaming capabilities in Full HD 1080/60p resolution from a distance of up to 15 kilometers. The Mavic 3 Classic remote controller is compatible with the DJI RC Pro, DJI RC, and RC-N1 remotes.
Not to forget, this drone is also supported by the fifth generation Advanced Pilot Assistance Program (APAS) technology. APAS 5.0 is getting smarter now. Relying on six vision sensors with fisheye lenses and two sensors with wide angle lenses allows this drone to detect obstacles and dodge automatically. So, the ability to fly automatically is now smarter and safer.
Other features, on the Mavic 3 Classic, there are still various automatic shooting modes, Quick Transfer features, and a maximum flight duration of up to about 46 minutes.
