It is the first time that we have a consumer-level drone from DJI that has the ability to point its camera upwards, allowing you to create all new kinds of aerial photos and videos.
Point your DJI Mini 3 Pro camera to the skies
Whereas the DJI Mavic 3 allows you to tilt the camera to the skies at an angle of 35°, the DJI Mini 3 Pro allows you to go all the way up to an angle of 60°. Not quite as far as the aging Parrot Anafi, but still much further than any other consumer DJI drone we have seen in the past.
“The DJI Mini 3 Pro has a seriously cool feature that I don’t see anybody talking about yet. And I think it deserves to be known by anybody looking to buy this drone,” says Drone Supremacy.
To tilt the gimbal and camera upwards on the DJI Mini 3 Pro, you do not need to change any settings. Simply using the left scrolling wheel on the remote controller will do the trick.
Just be careful when you fly your drone while pointing the camera upwards as it will be more difficult to see any obstacles that might be in your way. It will be best to make sure that you have the obstacle avoidance sensors activated.
DJI Mini 3 Pro also tilts upwards in vertical shooting mode
Also, while not shown in the video, tilting the camera upwards to the maximum angle of 60° is also possible when you rotate the camera 90° to allow for vertical shooting.
So in case, you want to share vertical photos or videos while pointing the camera on the DJI Mini 3 Pro upwards, directly to social media. No worries. DJI has you covered.
