DJI has unveiled a new the mini-sized drone called DJI Mini 3 Pro in the UAE. It features an ultralight design and advanced features, and is optimized for increased flight time and improved safety.
The DJI Mini 3 Pro’s ultra-lightweight formfactor has been designed around the needs of today’s creator. Weighing less than 249 grams and featuring a foldable and compact design, the drone is easy to carry and use in any environment. This also makes the drone regulation-friendly so it does not require registration in most countries and regions.
The DJI Mini 3 Pro is just as powerful as it is portable. Its Intelligent Flight Battery is ultra-lightweight yet efficient enough to provide extended flight times of up to 34 minutes. If upgraded to the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus, the drone can extend battery life of up to 47 minutes.
That translates to 47 minutes of stunning 4K HDR video and 48MP RAW photos. You can get closer to subjects thanks to its 4x zoom capabilities and even slow footage down with dramatic 1080p/120fps slow-motion video. D-Cinelike Color mode provides richer color possibilities and more flexibility when editing while giving users you more visual information.
The drone can maintain these outstanding capabilities in a wide range of lighting conditions, thanks to a 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor that has a dual native ISO and supports the direct output of HDR footage. It’s larger 2.4μm pixels and an aperture ratio of f/1.7, makes the footage taken appear true-to-life even in low-light conditions.
All the footage captured can be easily transmitted to the operator, through the DJI O3 Video Transmission System, which allows you to sustain a 1080p/30fps live feed over distances of up to 12 km with its upgraded antennas and additional anti-interference capabilities. Meanwhile, the DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller provides smooth flying and responsive control with a maximum video bitrate of 18 Mbps, delivered at an ultra-low latency of 120ms.
Even at the maximum transmission distance, you can still control the drone seamlessly, thanks to special systems put in place to ensure safety of both the operator and the machine itself. One of the main safety features is the Tri-Directional Obstacle Sensing system, which utilizes forward, backward, and downward dual-vision sensors and an all-new aircraft design, for a broader sensing range and enhanced safety. Simultaneously, the newly upgraded Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS 4.0) detects objects in the aircraft’s flight path in real-time. This allows the drone to avoid obstacles and maneuver around autonomously and seamlessly even in complicated environments.
Even if you aren’t as confident in your flying skills, you can still make the most of the drone, thanks to programmed flight modes and image capture modes included in the interface. Here are the main image/video capture modes you can switch between:
True Vertical Shooting: Quickly switch between landscape and portrait in just a tap to take detailed social media ready shots. The re-engineered camera gimbal rotates 90°, so users do not have to compromise on image quality.
MasterShots: Simply select your subject, and the drone will execute a sequence of pro maneuvers, generating a short cinematic video that is ready to be shared with the world.
FocusTrack: The suite includes three powerful storytelling tools:
ActiveTrack 4.0 – Can seamlessly track the subject and keep it in the frame
Spotlight 2.0 – Allows the pilot to control the drone’s movement while the subject is locked into the frame
Point of Interest 3.0 – Provides an autonomous flight path around the subject
Hyperlapse: Speed up time with just a few taps by creating a striking hyperlapse or timelapse video.
Panorama: Capture the vastness of any landscape with Wide-angle, 180°, Vertical, and Sphere panorama shots.
Once you’ve gotten the footage that you need, you can easily share it to any devices, thanks to support for high-speed Wi-Fi downloads at up to 25 Mbps.
The DJI Mini 3 Pro is now available for purchase in the UAE at Advanced Media Trading’s showrooms and online.
