As pilots avidly await the launch of DJI’s newest drone, the Mavic 3, another leak showcases possible new design and features.
In case you missed it, a youtuber DroneModelismo, stated he has photos of the new Mavic 3. Though in this video he leaks just sketches or models of the new drone. Everyone is excited for the release of this new drone from DJI. A previous leak from last week stated not to expect the new Mavic 3 until early next year. There are some interesting features and specifications leaked that might backup the previous leak. It seems DJI will have multiple models of the Mavic 3 drone. The question still remains if the Mavic 3 will be announced this year or even sold to the public this year.
Pilots have even speculated that the Mavic 3 might even replace the Phantom series of drones. Albeit the drone would have to sport a serious camera payload in order to support drone mapping like the Phantom 4 Pro v2.
According to the YouTube video, expect these new features:
It is easy to assume we can expect multiple Mavic 3 models. The multiple camera payload options and lens options showcase DJI’s decision to potentially release multiple models. Even the rumors showcased a Pro model and Cine model of the Mavic 3. With a top mount camera, this Mavic 3 could easily be turned into a new enterprise drone as well. With a larger sensor and lens options, maybe pilots will be gifted with the ability to shoot 4k 60. The question remains on shooting options, will the sensor crop in to provide these higher frame rates of shooting.
According to the YouTuber, DJI will have a Pro Model Mavic 3 and a cine model. Hopefully DJI will not require a CINESSD to be able to shoot higher end formats and codecs. Guess we will find out later this year.
Rumors are swirling that the new Mavic 3 camera will be the highest end camera that DJI will have released. That seems interesting, but how would it stack up against the X7 or the P1? Albeit those camera payloads will probably cost more than the Mavic 3 itself. If the Mavic 3 Cine is able to record 5k video with various lens options, it will be a powerful little drone for videographers and photographers. Also, the Mavic 3 will remain the portable drone powerhouse over something like the Inspire 2. The rumors include the camera may even shoot a bitrate up to 500mb/s or a baseline of 15omb/s.
The fact that the rumors include a large internal storage on the drone foreshadow the ability for the Mavic 3 to shoot serious video. With a large amount of storage, the drone will be able to shoot hyper fast frame rates with high resolution. The SD card used won’t matter nearly as much.
With a larger battery, the supercharged camera and processor will have the power it needs to save video in that Apple Pro Res format. According to the rumors, the Mavic 3 will sport a 5s battery with 6,000 mAh. That would greatly increase the flight time over that of the Mavic 2 Pro.
The competition from drone manufactures everywhere continues to grow, but it wouldn’t surprise users if the Mavic 3 just knocks the competition out of the park.
