DJI has introduced a new compact, ultra-lightweight drone called the Mini 3. The main USP of the drone is its lightweight, which is less than 249g. It features strong anti-interference capability and a 10km maximum transmission range. This comes after the DJI Mavic 3 Classic that was introduced last month.
DJI Mini 3 features a 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and can record in 4K at 30 fps in HDR with true-to-life colors, both day and night. With 4-in-1 pixel technology, it can create photos from 48MP to 12MP in size, with individual pixels as large as 2.4 μm to improve low-light performance.
The Mini 3 is said to have dual native ISO and chip-level HDR technology that helps create incredibly clear images in little time. There’s also an option for “true vertical shooting,” which rotates the camera 90 degrees to create content that is perfect for social media platforms.
You can also get advanced shots in seconds with just a tap with QuickShots. A suite of pre-programmed flight and filming paths will help you shoot advanced shots in seconds with just a tap, like Dronie, Circle, Helix, Rocket, and Boomerang.
The DJI Mini 3 comes with the standard Intelligent Flight Battery to provide a maximum flight time of up to 38 minutes. Extend your flights by up to 51 minutes with the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus.
