According to information from the Drone DJ site, DJI’s next high-end drone, the Mavic 3 Pro, would offer 8K capture at 30 FPS.
While DJI has already unveiled its FPV, Air 2S and Mini 2 drones, the Chinese manufacturer is preparing to present its next high-end drone, the DJI Mavic 3 Pro. The DroneDJ site, specializing in drone news, has indeed received some information on the brand’s next quadcopter.
Some prototypes of the device are indeed under study at DJI. Among the features on board one of these prototypes, there is an 8K compatible camera at 30 FPS. This is a record for a consumer drone, since the DJI Air 2S offers a video definition of 5.8K and one of Autel’s competing drones, the Evo II Pro, offers 6K . In addition, if the Mavic 3 Pro is required to offer 8K at 30 FPS, we can imagine that it is also capable of filming in 4K and Full HD at much higher bit rates.
A higher price than that of the Mavic 2 Pro
However, these improvements on the video side would come at a heavy price. “The price will definitely be much higher. It’s confirmed “, thus indicates the source of Drone DJ. As a reminder, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro was launched in November 2018 at a price of 1499 euros. We can therefore expect an introductory price of between 1,500 and 2,000 euros for its successor.
Note also that, over the past year, DJI drones have lost their Mavic name. The successor to the DJI Mavic Mini is therefore the DJI Mini 2, when the DJI Air 2S succeeds the DJI Mavic Air 2. There is therefore no indication that the future “Pro” drone from DJI is called Mavic Pro 3, since it could do everything. simply be called DJI Pro 3.
As for the release date of the drone, it seems that the Mavic 3 Pro is expected in late summer or early fall, between August and November next.
