DJI Mavic 3 Drone

The DJI Mavic 3 Drone comes equipped with 2 cameras. The first is a 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera that is capable of capturing 20MP photos, 5.1K video and 4K video at up to 120fps. The second is a 1/2” CMOS sensor, tele-camera that offers a focal length of 162mm, an f4.4 aperture and a 28x hybrid zoom.

The drone has a flight time of up to 46 minutes, a 12km video transmission range and Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing to allow for safer flying so that you can concentrate on capturing the most cinematic footage possible.

Two Cameras on one drone!

Hasselblad L2D-20c Camera

At the heart of the DJI Mavic 3 is the Hasselblad L2D-20c camera. This is a 4/3 CMOS sensor camera that is capable of high-resolution 20MP photos and produces 12.8 stops of Dynamic Range so that you have more information to work with in post-production.

The larger sensor helps to suppress noise in low-light conditions and the variable aperture range, of f2.8-f11, gives you more control in a multitude of lighting situations.

The lens offers a 24mm focal length (35mm equivalent) and has an 84° field-of-view for capturing more details with sharp clarity. The lens only weighs 12.5g and is also equipped with Vision Detection Auto Focus (VDAF) that works with multiple vision sensors so as to utilize distance data and to optimise focusing speeds.

Key Features

  • 20MP Photos
  • 12.8 Stops of Dynamic Range
  • f/2.8-f/11 Adjustable Aperture
  • 24mm Equivalent Focal Length
  • Vision Detection Auto Focus (VDAF)


Also equipped on the Mavic 3 is a 1/2” CMOS sensor, tele-camera that offers a focal length of 162mm, an f4.4 aperture and a 28x hybrid zoom. This allows you to film even when subjects are far away. When using this with explore mode, you can scout out your surrounding area and plan out your shots.

Key Features

  • 1/2” CMOS Sensor
  • 12MP Camera
  • f/4.4 aperture
  • 28x Hybrid Zoom
  • 162mm focal length
  • 15° field-of-view

Outstanding video quality

The Mavic 3 offers some exceptional video capabilities. It is possible to capture 5.1K 50P and DCI 4K video at up to 120fps. The camera can capture up to 1 billion colours due to its 10-bit D-Log colour profile which is fantastic for colour grading in post-production.

Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution

Another benefit of the Hasselblad camera is their Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS). This ensures natural and highly accurate colours are captured, no matter where you’re shooting.

Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing

The drone comes equipped with Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing. This allows for a safer flying experience allowing you to concentrate on capturing the most cinematic footage possible. This is achieved by multiple wide-angle vision sensors working with a high-performance vision computing engine so that it can sense obstacles in all directions.

Advanced RTH

The drone also features an advanced RTH (Return To Home) mode. This allows the drone to determine the safest route back to its home point on its own, giving you that extra peace of mind.

46 Minute Flight Time

The Mavic 3 has been designed in such a way that its wind resistance is 50% stronger than its predecessor. Combine this with a more efficient propulsion system and a high-capacity battery and you get an extended flight time of 46 minutes. This gives you ample time to get all the footage you need in a single flight.

12km Transmission Range/FHD High-Frame-Rate

The drone has a 12km transmission range with higher stability and less video lag so that you can fly farther than ever before. It is also the first drone capable of 1080p/60fps live feed so that you can view the footage being captured closer to what the camera is actually recording.


You can rest assured that your footage will be as clear as possible thanks to the drone’s High-Precision-Positioning system. This allows the drone to remain incredibly stable while hovering so that you can produce outstanding photos, video, timelapse and hyperlapse videos.

Other features of the drone include*

Waypoints 3.0, Active Track 5.0, MasterShots, Wi-Fi 6 Quick Transfer, 100MP Panorama, Trimmed Download.

*These will be made available in a firmware update in January 2022
