DJI Mavic 3 Pro review (2023) DJI’s latest drone with great features

an excellent drone with professional features in a compact design.

The DJI Mavic 3 Pro is the newest drone in DJI’s Mavic line, and it’s also the most advanced one so far. Even though it wasn’t announced as a direct replacement for the Mavic 3, which has been on the market for almost two years, it seems to be that way since the price difference between the two doesn’t leave much room for the now-old Mavic 3. The Mavic 3 Pro is meant to be the more professional version of the Mavic 3 Classic. It has better features and capabilities that make it better for professional photographers and filmmakers. The Mavic 3 Pro bridges the gap between small drones and larger professional drone systems like the DJI Inspire 3.

DJI Mavic 3 Pro: Description

The camera system is the best thing about the Mavic 3 Pro. It has three cameras: a Hasselblad camera with a 24mm wide-angle lens, a 70mm medium telephoto lens, and a 166mm telephoto lens. The big news here is that the 24mm was made in collaboration with Hasselblad and has a 4/3 CMOS sensor with 20 megapixels. That’s about the same size of sensor you will find in a lot of Olympus and Panasonic cameras, so there’s a huge amount of quality image capture potential here.

The other two cameras fit around the big 24mm and can be turned on with a quick tap on the screen in the DJI Fly app. The camera system can also record 4K video at up to 60 frames per second, making it perfect for professional filmmakers who need high-quality footage. the DJI Mavic 3 Pro looks like a great drone with features and abilities that are good enough for professionals. At this price, it has the best camera system on the market. But it doesn’t really have any competitors, and it can take beautiful photos and videos almost anywhere.

DJI Mavic 3 Pro: Design and Features

DJI Mavic 3 Pro review

The Mavic 3 Pro is about the same size as the Mavic 3, but the camera unit is much bigger on the Mavic 3 Pro. As far as we can tell, the design is mostly the same everywhere else. The new camera unit makes it heavier than 900 grams, which is an important limit. Depending on the rules where you live, that could make it illegal to fly. If you want to find out more about drone laws, we have a detailed guide to the rules in the UK and the US.

The muzzle, which keeps the propellers and gimbal in place for safe travel, is another change. This came out with the original Mavic 3, but since the shape and size of the camera unit are so different, a new version was made for the Mavic 3 Pro. The new one works in a similar way to the old one, and it still keeps everything together and safe, but it looks and feels much cheaper than the old one. We’re sure this won’t stop anyone from buying this accessory, but it’s still a shame that the quality of the materials has gone down.

DJI Mavic 3 Pro: Camera

DJI Mavic 3 Pro review

The camera on the DJI Mavic 3 Pro is the main reason to choose it over other Mavic 3 models, and it’s very good. The main wide-angle Hasselblad camera, which has a field of view equivalent to 24mm on a regular camera, hasn’t changed much from the Mavic 3, and it’s still the best here in terms of overall image quality: the sensor is a large 4/3 type that can take 20MP stills and 5.1K/C4K/4K video with frame rates of up to 200fps.It can shoot in 10-bit 4:2:2 color mode and has ‘flat’ profiles D-Log, D-Log M, and HLG to make grading and correcting easier after production.

The DJI Mavic 3 Pro has a telephoto camera like the Mavic 3, but it’s a little bit better than the one on the Mavic 3. The field of view is about the same (166mm), but the aperture is wider, which makes it a little better in low light. It has a 1/2-inch sensor with a 12MP resolution, but users should know that it doesn’t shoot video in D-Log, D-Log M, or HLG. Instead, it only has the Normal color mode, which isn’t great for editing after the fact.

It can record up to 4K at 60 frames per second, though. The exciting new thing about this is that there is now a third camera with a medium telephoto lens, which is about 70mm. It can take 12MP/48MP native photos and 4K/60p videos, and it supports HLG and D-Log M but not regular D-Log. This puts it in the middle of the other two cameras in terms of focal length and quality.

DJI Mavic 3 Pro: Performance

Taking pictures with a 20-megapixel Hasselblad camera is fun. We would have liked to see a higher resolution, but there’s no doubt that the large pixels help the Night Mode. The 24mm EFL camera is great, and that’s about all we can say about it. It still doesn’t have a mechanical shutter, which is more of a problem for orthographers, but the Mavic 3E Enterprise takes care of them.

The medium tele is a great camera, and 70mm EFL is a very useful length for orbital shots of people or vehicles. Our test had some long shots, so it might not have been the best way to test, but we got sharp, clear video and stills with very little evidence of the inevitable vibration at 166mm EFL, which was very important. At that distance, the image quality isn’t as good as with the wide lens; it’s softer and has less range of brightness. But it is also clear that it is a step up from the first Mavic 3.

From a creative point of view, it’s best to say as little as possible about the digital zoom mode. It’s a useful tool to have, but we like that DJI has put it in an Explore mode to keep it from blurring pictures by accident. Using three cameras will sometimes require you to take a break, but that’s fine because the battery life is still right around 40 minutes The Mavic 3 Pro Fly More kit comes with a Pro controller, which we used to test the drone. The DJI RC is based on iOS, but this one is based on Android and has a bigger, brighter screen and an antenna that folds out.

DJI Mavic 3 Pro: Battery Life

DJI Mavic 3 Pro review

The Mavic 3 Pro has a lot of tech, like better cameras, but that comes at a small cost to the battery life. The Mavic 3 can fly for up to 46 minutes on a single charge, but the Mavic 3 Pro can fly for up to 43 minutes. Fair enough, that’s not a big difference, but when you consider that drones have notoriously short battery lives, every minute counts. And that number is based on the idea that you are not using the APAS 5.0 technology to avoid obstacles.

Final Words

The Mavic 3 Pro is a great camera drone that costs about the same as the regular Mavic 3 did when it first came out about 18 months ago. However, it’s not for everyone. Even if you already have the standard Mavic 3, we have no problem recommending it to frequent drone users who need the extra creative tool of the medium telephone lens. It’s more of the same, but with a little extra sauce. And if you live in the UK, it doesn’t limit where you can fly any more.

If you just want to fly your drone once in a while to take some cool pictures, the Mavic 3 Pro (and the other Mavic 3 models) might be too much for you. A Mavic Mini model might be better for you because it fits your needs better, is much cheaper, can be flown in cities, parks, and close to people, and is even smaller and easier to carry.
