DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone Weighs Half-Pound But Packs a Punch

The long wait is over. DJI has finally released the latest iteration of their mega-capable, foldable, and portable drone. The Mini 3 Pro drone weighs less than 249 grams but is packed with an extended flight time of 34 minutes and so much more. But if 34 minutes in the air isn’t enough, content creators can opt for the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus upgrade to up the carefree exploration time for up to 47 minutes. 

Its size paved the way for increased flight time and safety, bundled with its aerodynamic tilt, large propellers, and powerful tri-directional obstacle sensing system. It also features a reimagined gimbal that allows creative opportunities with a broader rotation range for True Vertical shooting and low-angle shots. 

The DJI Mini 3 Pro is perfect for day and night shoots with its 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor, which has dual native ISO. Every image is saved as 48MP RAW and reveals more detail than ever before. Videos are also getting an upgrade with 4K/60fps HDR video output, which can easily be slowed down through the dramatic 1080p/120fps slow-motion video feature. 

It does not end there, as you’ll be able to use the Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS 4.0) that detect objects in the flight path, helping them avoid any obstacles in real-time. This is in addition to the 1080p/30fps live feed at distances of up to 12km. The aircraft is manned using the DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller or the new DJI RC, which offers a max 18mbps video bitrate at an ultra-low latency of 120 ms.

Getting professional shots has never been easier, even for beginner aerial photographers, with intelligent functionalities ingrained in the drone. It has MasterShots, FocusTrack, Hyperlapse, and Digital Zoom features that improve object tracking and focus. The camera can also shoot wide-angle, vertical, 180-degree, and sphere panorama shots. 

Direct output of the HDR footage is supported, adding to ease of editing and transfer. DJI Mini 3 Pro has a D-Cinelike Color mode for more flexibility when editing and QuickTransfer that supports high-speed Wi-Fi downloads up to 25 Mbps.

DJI Mini 3 Pro packages start at $759. It is now available for purchase with limited units at
