DJI Mavic 3 Pro: Leaks reveal upcoming drone with new 3x telephoto camera
It appears that DJI is on the verge of releasing two new drones in quick succession. Yesterday, the company teased the launch of the Inspire 3, a professional drone that will replace the ageing Inspire 2. For context, while DJI tends to replace its consumer-grade drones every few years, it has been selling the Inspire 2 since the end of 2016. DJI has not revealed many details about the Inspire 3 yet, but it has confirmed a launch date and has shared a teaser image.
Additionally, several leakers have discovered photos of the Mavic 3 Pro, which we have embedded below. DJI kicked off the Mavic 3 series in late 2021 with the Mavic 3 and the Mavic 3 Cine. Subsequently, the company released the Mavic 3E and the Mavic 3T under the Mavic 3 Enterprise series, followed by the Mavic 3 Classic. Most recently, DJI introduced the Mavic 3M, which added multispectral sensors and more cameras to the Mavic 3 recipe.
Now, it seems that DJI is readying the Mavic 3 Pro. Many details remain unknown for now, such as pricing and availability. However, leaked photos reveal that the Mavic 3 Pro has a third camera for 3x optical zoom with a 70-75 mm equivalent focal length. Moreover, DJI will offer the Mavic 3 Pro as part of a Fly More Combo, which will bundle an RC Pro remote controller and several accessories. It is unclear what other changes DJI has made to distinguish the Mavic 3 Pro from the regular Mavic 3 though, whether that be improved flight times and image stabilisation.
