DJI Mavic 3: Specifications and features
The DJI Mavic 3 weighs 12.5 grams and comes with omnidirectional obstacle sensors for improved navigation. The drone is said to feature redesigned batteries that are capable of providing up to 46 minutes of flight time as per the company.
The DJI Mavic 3 comes with a dual-camera setup. The primary shooter is a 4/3 CMOS sensor with a 24mm prime lens. The camera can shoot 20MP still images in 12-bit RAW format and videos in 5.1K at 50fps, 4K at 120fps. Additionally, the Mavic 3 comes with an adjustable aperture of f/2.8-f/11 and the camera has an 84-degree FOV.

The drone comes with Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) to offer natural colours and packs camera features, such as MasterShots, Panorama mode, and QuickTransfer.
“Creating the Mavic 3 was an arduous journey for our engineers who tackled complex technical problems to serve the goal that the Mavic series has always met – build professional-quality imaging and flight technology into a compact consumer drone,” Ferdinand Wolf, Creative Director, DJI Europe said while commenting on the Mavic 3.
The DJI Mavic 3 packs six fish-eye vision sensors and two wide-angle sensors, to sense obstacles in all directions and navigate safely. The Mavic 3 drone also comes with support for GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellites. This enables the device to lock onto multiple satellite signals.
The device comes with safety systems such as geofencing which is said to alert drone pilots when they fly near sensitive locations. The DJI Mavic 3 features DJI’s Return To Home feature, which allows the aircraft to automatically determine the shortest, safest, and energy-efficient route to land back at its home point.
The device also supports DJI Cellular Transmission Dongle, which is an accessory that attaches securely to Mavic 3. The dongle allows Mavic 3 to seamlessly coordinate the O3+ transmission system with 4G networks for a smooth, stable connection when O3+ signals are blocked by buildings, trees, or other structures.
