Finally, the new DJI Drone the Mavic 3 has been spotted flying in China. The Mavic 3 specs leaked showcasing dual cameras to include zoom.
In the last 48 hours, there have been new Mavic 3 leaks. The leaks showcase the Mavic 3 drone and manual showcasing the specifications. In the past, DJI launched multiple models of the Mavic series to include a zoom version and a large sensor version. Well it looks like DJI will combine zoom capabilities with a larger format sensor in the new Mavic 3 Cine Model.
The new DJI Mavic 3 drone looks like it will have 2 models, plus a fly more combo. DJI will offer a 46 minute flight time on the Mavic 3 Pro. The Mavic 3 Cine seems to incorporate dual cameras, an onboard SSD and paired to a new smart remote. According to leaker Jasper Ellens, pilots can expect this new drone to drop in Mid November with multiple price points. Let’s take a look at the new specifications leaked on the Mavic 3.

Various leaks from multiple sources seem to be touting the same features from the Mavic 3 drone. The leakers expect to see the new drone coming in the latter half of November this year. While pilots have been seeing new drones from Autel, it seems that DJI will once again take the cake with this new drone. One of the leakers even showcased the DJI Mavic 3 manual showcasing that the battery has been moved to the bottom of the aircraft. It also looks like there may be additional obstacle avoidance sensors.
One particular upgrade that is exciting and may foreshadow some huge features…The Mavic 3 drone leak showcased the Cine version will house a Cine SSD onboard harddrive. Will this mean that the Mavic 3 Cine will shoot raw video or even offer the Apple Pro Res codec? Does this mean the DJI Mavic 3 will be able to shoot higher frame rate with increased processing speed? Some leakers have commented we could see 4k 120FPS video from the Cine version.
It looks like the new Mavic 3 drone, on all versions will have one downfall. Looking closely at the drone manual leak, and we see that DJI’s new RC Pro remote will only have a battery life of 3 hours. Frankly, it will mean pilots flying these drones for all day missions might have to buy multiple remotes. Or we might see a battery backup accessory come from our favorite accessory manufacturers. Only time will tell.
Albeit, there is one major upgrade that most of the news outlets have missed. Check out this article for more.
