DJI Mavic 3 Classic camera drone shows up in newly leaked photos
Newly leaked photos show the DJI Mavic 3 Classic camera drone in greater detail. The photos were shared online by long-term DJI leaker DealsDrone.
The first photo shows us the camera and gimbal of the DJI Mavic 3 Classic. In the top left, we see the Hasselblad logo and the mention of E.24, F2.8. The camera on the DJI Mavic 3 Classic appears to be the same as the main camera of the original DJI Mavic 3 with the dual camera setup.
If that is indeed the case, the DJI Mavic 3 Classic would have a 24mm lens, f/2.8-f/11 aperture, 4/3 CMOS sensor, and shoot 20MP stills and up to 5.1K video.
DJI introduced the DJI Mavic 3 with a dual camera setup just before the holiday shopping season last year. The drone was hampered with missing functionality and GPS connection troubles at first, which the dronemaker eventually fixed with a series of firmware updates.
Could DJI offer a stripped-down version of the original DJI Mavic 3 nearly a year later? Without a doubt.
DJI has done this previously with the DJI Mini SE and may do it again with the DJI Mini 3 non-Pro, which we discussed earlier.
Is the DJI Mavic 3 Classic a worthwhile option?
It would make a lot of sense for DJI to offer a slightly less versatile but significantly less expensive version of the DJI Mavic 3 camera drone. A more affordable single-camera DJI Mavic 3 Classic would appeal to new drone enthusiasts and budget-constrained drone operators.
We had heard rumors of a DJI Mavic 3 SE and/or S. For the time being, we will presume that the DJI Mavic 3 Classic is the same as those two variants.
Stay tuned, as a DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise RTK, a DJI Inspire 3, and a DJI Mini 3 non-Pro are still expected to be launched this year.

I would be curious as to where else they have been able to cut corners to bring the price down, and by how much as well, the single telephoto lens isnt exactly an expensive addition, in reality that could be around $50 saving.
In all fairness I would not have missed the telephoto lens, I would have preferred an APS-C single sensor instead, but I guess such a sensor would be better served on a next gen Mavic in a few years
