This is quite a huge upgrade for aerial photographers who are hoping for better quality cameras to improve on their photos or videos. Prior to this, drone pilots hoping for a 4/3 sensor would have to buy a separate camera like the DJI Zenmuse or use Panasonic’s BGH1.
Other features include direct USB-C charging which means that you won’t have to remove the battery, and speaking of battery, the flight time of the Mavic 3 has been listed as 46 minutes, slightly longer than the 31 minutes on the Mavic 2. The Mavic 3 is also said to be priced starting $1,600 and will most likely be announced on the 15th of November.
