Just now, our friends in Germany published the following photos showing the DJI Mavic 3 Classic in all its glory. The photos really don’t show anything we didn’t already know. Just picture a DJI Mavic 3 minus the second telelens camera.
The DJI Mavic 3 Classic is expected to be released soon. We already saw the FCC filings and this morning’s teaser from the world’s largest camera drone maker seems to indicate we will not have to wait long.
With the DJI Mavic 3 Classic, DJI aims to provide consumers with a less expensive alternative to the basic model and the even more expensive cine version.
DJI Mavic 3 Classic datasheet
According to the datasheet, the DJI Mavic 3 Classic and the DJI Mavic 3 are practically identical, according to our German friends. However, there is one very important difference that, given the lower price, may make the Classic version more affordable for most customers.
The DJI Mavic 3 Classic has the primary camera’s 20-megapixel sensor, as opposed to the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine, which both feature two cameras.
With an 84-degree wide field of view and a focal length equal to 24 millimeters and an f/2.8-11 aperture, it is nevertheless a competent 20-megapixel camera sensor.
The MFT sensor can offer a maximum picture resolution of 5280×3956 pixels and can focus on the subject of the recording from a distance of about three feet away.
The DJI Mavic 3 Classic has a large sensor and can capture 5.1K footage at rates of up to 50 frames per second. 120 frames per second is the max frame rate that can be produced for 4K movies, whereas 200 fps is feasible for Full HD recordings. There is a digital zoom with a maximum magnification of three times, and the ISO range is 100 to 6400.
The DJI Mavic 3 Classic is reported to have a maximum flying time of 46 minutes and uses the same battery as its two sister versions. The rate of ascent is stated as being up to eight meters per second, the same as with the previous variants. A range of up to 6 miles is provided when using the DJI RC remote controller that is included.
Aside from the removed telelens camera, the only other change in the datasheet is the five grams of weight reduction, which DJI lists as 895 grams.
The Mavic 3 Classic will be available from DJI in various configurations. One bundle will include the DJI RC remote controller, and there will also be a Fly More Combo offering additional batteries and accessories.
Lastly, and I know many of you will be happy to hear this, the DJI Mavic 3 Classic camera drone will also be offered without a remote controller or any accessories.
No pricing information was shared, but we still believe $1,400 to be a fairly accurate estimate.
