DJI Air 3 Sales Guide

Apparently, the Chinese DJI Air 3 Sales Guide is part of the Retail Training Group marketing and sales materials. In the sales guide, all the prominent specifications of the DJI Air 3 drone are explained and compared to other popular DJI drones, such as the DJI Mini 3 Pro, the still popular DJI Air 2S, and the very capable, albeit nose-heavy DJI Mavic 3 Pro.

The main selling point of the DJI Air 3 drone is its dual camera setup with one wide-angle lens (24mm) with an aperture of f/1.7 and one 3x or 70mm telelens with a max aperture of f/2.8. Both cameras enjoy a 1/1.3 CMOS sensor that can shoot still aerial images at either 12 or 48 Megapixels.

The drone can record video footage in 4K at a maximum of 100 frames per second with the wide angle lens and 4K, 60 fps with the telelens. Footage can be recorded in HLG/D-Log M color mode. The DJI Air 3 also supports a 3x digital zoom.

The DJI Air 3 marketing material points out that there is no difference between the footage from the wide-angle and telelens, requiring no color grading or adjustments to the footage in post-production. This should make it easier and faster to take aerial photos or videos and post them to social media.
