Editor’s update: DJI Mavic 3 Classic is now available to buy. Here’s DJI Mavic 3 Classic vs. Air 2S vs. Mavic 2 Pro at a glance.
DJI has dropped a promo teaser inviting fans to a product launch event on November 2. But while social media is buzzing with speculation about the new offering, a German website has gone ahead and leaked the complete photo gallery and specifications of a new DJI drone: the Mavic 3 Classic.
We already had a pretty good idea of what DJI’s new product could be, thanks to the recent FCC paperwork filed by the company. But now, Roland Quandt of Winfuture has all but sealed the deal with a massive photo dump and specs reveal.
The headline remains the same: Mavic 3 Classic is a slightly dressed-down version of the OG Mavic 3, sacrificing its tele camera to become more pocket-friendly.
And while it remains to be seen exactly how pocket-friendly will this drone be, DJI will likely sell the aircraft in a number of combinations of compatible remote controllers and accessories to cater to varied budgets and user requirements.
For now, we are expecting the Mavic 3 Classic to shoot 20MP still images in 12-bit RAW format and videos in 5.1K at 50fps and 4K at 120fps. In addition, an adjustable aperture of f/2.8 – f/11 is also to be expected, allowing aerial photographers to get sharper and clearer images in a wide variety of lighting scenarios.
