Stunning aerial photography
The Mavic 3 quadcopter is an evolutionary step forward for DJI's most popular series of drones. Like its predecessors, the Mavic 3 offers smooth, fast flight with a variety of intelligent flight modes. But it also comes with a sophisticated 5.1K camera custom-built for the drone by Hasselblad, world-famous makers of cameras and lenses.
This compact, professional-grade camera has a powerful 4/3" sensor, which helps it achieve 12.8-stop dynamic range for enhanced highlight and shadow detail. And that larger sensor gives you greater resolution and clarity, reducing noise for excellent low-light performance. A wide field of view lets you capture more in every frame, and VDAF (Vision Detection Auto Focus) technology works with the drone's vision sensors to quickly focus on your subject.
Colors that are true to life
The Mavic 3 can capture up to one billion shades of color with its 10-bit D-Log color profile. It also uses Hasselblad Natural Color Solution (HNCS), a rigorous system that calibrates sensor data at the pixel level with a unique image processing algorithm. HNCS accurately reproduces rich, natural colors that pop without presets of any kind.
The Mavic 3 has a secondary telephoto camera built-in. This camera has a 12-megapixel 1/2" CMOS sensor and supports up to 28X hybrid zoom. It can be activated at any time with Explorer mode, helping you scout out the terrain and plan your next shot. You can record with this scouting camera too, letting you zoom in and capture detailed footage from a comfortable distance.
Strong transmission, stable controls
Getting a fuzzy feed or losing the video connection entirely mid-flight is lame and potentially disastrous at high speeds. Luckily, the Mavic 3 uses OcuSync 3.0+, an upgraded version of DJI's already impressive transmission system. This wireless technology automatically switches between two different bands (2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz) to resist pesky interference and provide reliable high-definition video transmission.
OcuSync's low-latency transmission gives you high-definition video feeds at a smooth 60 frames per second, and it keeps your control of the drone sharp and responsive. With a range up to 9.3 miles, you also have some serious flexibility. You can catch a shot panning over a mountainside or along a ravine while you're planted safely on terra firma.
An upcoming firmware update will let you capture the action on the move with intelligent flight modes like ActiveTrack 5.0.
A wide range of upcoming shooting modes
The Mavic 3 has an upcoming firmware update planned for January 2022. This update will add several shooting mode options to help you get creative. You'll be able to produce time-lapse videos, keep moving objects in focus with several FocusTrack modes like ActiveTrack 5.0, or use SmartPhoto processing to optimize your image quality in a variety of shooting conditions. There should be something for everyone.
MasterShots is the upcoming mode I'm most excited about. It will let you pick a subject and the drone will automatically keep it center-frame while performing a sequence of 10 different aerial maneuvers. It will be an easy way to create a short, cool-looking cinematic video that's perfect for social media.
Making it simple to fly and share
DJI makes it easy to start learning how to fly. The DJI Fly app has comprehensive tutorials, helping you get prepped for your first real flight. Before you know it, you'll be zipping the drone overhead with confidence. Omnidirectional vision sensors and a downward infrared sensor also help you navigate and avoid potential obstacles. The drone's Advanced RTH (Return to Home) feature can even automatically plot a safe course back to you at the press of a button or if the signal is lost.
You can edit your footage directly within the Fly app too. Built-in filters, background music, and professionally designed video templates help you splice together cool content in minutes.

More details on the DJI Mavic 3
Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing: The DJI Mavic 3 is equipped with Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing - consisting of both an Infrared System, plus Forward Backward, Upward, and Downward Visions Systems along with a high-performance vision computing engine to sense obstacles in all directions precisely and plan a safe flight route that avoids them.
- Visions Systems: The Upward & Downward Visions Systems consist of two cameras each, while the Forward, Backward, and Lateral Visions Systems consist of four cameras in total. Together, these Vision Systems help the DJI Mavic 3 to avoid obstacles during flight.
- Infrared Sensing System: The Infrared Sensing System consists of two 3D infrared (IR) modules. The Downward Visions System and Infrared Sensing System help the aircraft maintain its current position, hover in place more precisely, and to fly indoors or in other environments when GNSS is unavailable. In addition, the Auxiliary Bottom Light on the underside of the aircraft helps improve visibility for the Downward Vision System in weak light conditions.
Note: Flight Autonomy only provides a certain amount of protection in specific environments and does not compensate for user judgment during flight. DJI warranty does not cover any loss caused by crashing. Please be aware of your surroundings and app notifications when operating the Mavic 3 to ensure safety.
APAS (Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems) 5.0: DJI's Advanced Pilot Assistant Systems (APAS) 5.0 combines input from the Mavic 3's Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensors to continuously sense obstacles in all directions and plan safe flight routes that avoid them; even in complicated environments. When the Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) 5.0 feature is enabled, the aircraft continues to respond to your commands and plans its path according to both control stick inputs and the flight environment. APAS 5.0 makes it easier to avoid obstacles, obtain smoother footage, and give a better flying experience. The Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) 5.0 feature is only available in Normal and Cine mode.
OcuSync 3.0+ Transmission: OcuSync 3.0+ not only gives the Mavic 3 a 9.3 miles (15km) max transmission range, it also ensures higher transmission stability and less video lag, offering you greater peace of mind during flight. Thanks to the updated O3+ transmission system and 4 built-in antennas, the Mavic 3 is DJI’s first-ever drone able to transmit a 1080p/60fps live feed. This means the camera view is displayed at specifications close to what the camera actually records. It also makes Mavic 3 more responsive to your control. The high-precision positioning of Mavic 3 not only ensures clearer long-exposure shots, it also helps record smoother time-lapse videos. In short, it makes Mavic 3 more stable every time it hovers.
- Dual-Band Auto-Switching: By support auto-switching between both 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz bands, the Mavic 3 can always transmit on the clearest signal which is crucial for high-interference environments.
- Fast Download & Low-Latency: OcuSync 3.0+ offers a download speed of up to 80Mbps and latency as low as 130ms, delivering a smoother video feed and overall better control experience.
Note: OS 3.0+ specifications based on an environment that is unobstructed, free of interference and is FCC compliant.
Flight Modes: The DJI Mavic 3 has three flight modes, plus a fourth flight m ode that the aircraft switches to in certain scenarios. Flight m odes can be switched via a switch on the included remote controller.
- Normal: In Normal mode, the aircraft uses GNSS, along with Forward, Backward, Lateral, Upward, and Downward Vision Systems, plus an Infrared Sensing System to locate and stabilize itself. When the GNSS signal is strong, the aircraft uses GNSS to locate itself and stabilize. When the GNSS is weak and the lighting conditions are sufficient, the aircraft uses vision systems to locate itself and stabilize. Maximum speed is 33.5 mph in Normal mode.
- Sport: In Sport mode, the aircraft uses GNSS for positioning and the aircraft responses are optimized for agility and speed making it more responsive to controller movements. Obstacle Sensing is disabled in Sport mode. The maximum flight speed is 42.5 mph in Sport mode.
- Cine: Cine mode is based on Normal mode, but the maximum flight speed is limited, making the aircraft more stable during shooting.
- Attitude: The aircraft automatically changes to Attitude (ATTI) mode when the Vision Systems are unavailable or disabled, and when the GNSS signal is weak or the compass experiences interference. In ATTT mode, the aircraft may be more easily affected by its surrounds. Environmental factors such as wind can results in horizontal shifting.
Advanced Return To Home: DJI's Return To Home (RTH) system has enhanced the safety of DJI drones for years, automatically directing a drone back to its starting point if it runs critically low on battery or loses connection to the controller. The drone would ascend high enough to clear any obstacles in its path, fly back in a straight line, and descend straight down to the home point. The Mavic 3 updates and improves this system by allowing the aircraft to automatically determine the shortest, safest, and energy-efficient route to land back at its home point. At the same time, the drone measures the wind speed of the current environment and calculates the power required for returning home based on the wind speed and the return path in real-time. This provides you with more time flying safely before triggering the RTH action.
- Smart RTH: Smart RTH can be used to bring the aircraft back to the "Home Point". Smart RTH is initiated from the remote controller or the DJI Fly app. It will then automatically plan the best RTH path back to the "Home Point".
- Low Battery RTH: Low Battery RTH is automatically triggered when the aircraft's intelligent flight battery is depleted to the point that the safe return of the aircraft may be affected. You can have the drone return to the "Home Point", or land the aircraft immediately when prompted.
- Failsafe RTH: Failsafe RTH automatically activates after the remote controller signal is lost for more than six seconds. The drone will then return to the "Home Point" using the best possible path according to the environment.
Precision Landing: The drone automatically scans and attempts to match the terrain below during RTH (Return To Home). The aircraft will land when the current terrain matches the "Home Point". Landing Protection is activated during Smart RTH. During Landing Protection, the aircraft will automatically detect and carefully land on suitable ground. If the ground is determined to be unsuitable for landing, the drone will hover and wait for pilot confirmation.
Flight Recorder: Flight data including flight telemetry, aircraft status information, and other parameters are automatically saved to the internal data recorder of the DJI Mavic 3. The data can be accessed using the DJI Assistant 2 (Consumer Drones Series) software program - compatible with Windows PC and Mac.
FAA Rules & Regulations: Please familiarize yourself with the FAA's rules & regulations for unmanned aircraft systems before flying your drone. Click here for more details.
