DJI, a Chinese drone manufacturer, has announced that it will host a product launch event on April 25th. The company is expected to unveil the latest version of its drone, the Mavic 3 Pro. High-definition renderings of the new model have already been leaked.
DJI is set to enhance the performance of the new drone in collaboration with Hasselblad, a Swedish manufacturer of medium format cameras. The drone has already been listed on Idle Fish, a second-hand trading platform, with prices starting at 13,888 yuan ($2,020) for the drone alone and 18,888 yuan for a combo package.
The Mavic 3 Pro has improved upon its predecessor, the Mavic 3, by upgrading its lens. The new long-range sensor offers a viewing angle of 14° and an aperture of f/3.4, with an equivalent focal length of 166mm. Additionally, the maximum resolution has been upgraded from 4k50p to 4k60p.

DJI’s flagship portable drone, the Mavic 3, has been offered in several variants to cater to consumers with different budgets and requirements. DJI has decided to add a third lens for good reasons. The camera system of the Mavic 3 includes a 24mm main lens and a 162mm telephoto lens. These two lenses have vastly different viewing angles and there is also a significant difference in image quality between them. Consequently, users have criticized the drone’s telephoto lens since its release.
