Perhaps the most enticing feature of any drone is capturing the world in a completely unique manner via aerial photography. If this is the primary goal of your drone ownership, the DJI Mini 3 Pro looks to be a great choice. The raw specs are as follows: A 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor with dual native ISO supports the direct output of HDR footage. You'll have the ability to shoot in 4K/60FPS or 1080p/120fps, and take 48MP photos.
If DJI can be believed, this results in rich, dynamic video and photography, even in low-light conditions thanks to a f/1.7 aperture ratio. For beginners, DJI has included MasterShots, allowing you to simply select an object and watch as the Pro executes a series of manoeuvres to deliver an outstanding cinematic video.
Advanced obstacle detection
A drone isn't much good if it flies into a telephone pole and breaks after an hour of use. That's why DJI has stepped up its obstacle detection game with the Mini 3 Pro. The Pro features so-called Tri-Directional Obstacle Sensing to deliver the safest DJI Mini to date. What does this mean exactly? Forward, backward and downward dual-vision sensors offer an extremely broad sensing range, so nothing will surprise it.
Meanwhile, Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS 4.0) tracks objects in the Pro's flightpath in real-time. This full package of measures ensures safety and reliability from your drone.
Lightweight and easy-to-use
Drones don't come much more user-friendly than this. Weighing in at under 250 grams, it doesn't require registration here in Australia, saving you time and money. (You should still familiarise yourself will all relevant regulations.) It also features a foldable design that makes it easy to transport from scenic location to scenic location.
Those advanced safety features mentioned above come in handy here too, as you don't need to be an expert to pilot the Mini 3 Pro without collisions. If you've been waiting for the perfect drone to enter into the market, you just found it.
DJI continues to offer some of the best drone controllers on the market. The DJI Mini 3 Pro is compatible with the DJI RC-N1, if you already own one. Otherwise, you can grab the new DJI RC with the Pro. Either way, you'll get a max video bitrate of 18Mps and an ultra-low latency of of 120ms. Features like ActiveTrack 4.0 are accessible from DJI controllers.
The Mini 3 Pro delivers a 1080p 30FPS live feed at distances up to 12km. This allows you to always keep an eye on your investment and ensure you're getting the very best shots. Gone are the days of sending your drone off and hoping for the best.
With battery life offering 34 minutes of flight time, you'll have all the opportunities you need to capture that perfect shot. It also has larger propellers and improved aerodynamic body lift compared to the previous Mini.
