DJI just released the Mavic 3 Classic. The new DJI Mavic 3 Classic is very similar to the standard Mavic 3 and has one big difference that brings the price down significantly. Does this change affect its performance or make it less attractive? Take a look at this pilot’s first impressions.
Talking about drones is an exciting topic for me right now because almost a week ago I literally picked up my first drone: the relatively new DJI Mini 3 Pro. I had long considered getting a drone due to the spectacular landscapes that surround me here in Japan’s far south, and the reviews of the Mini 3 Pro were so overwhelmingly positive that I paid $1,150 (with RC and Fly More (Felt Kit Plus) was a relative bargain for what it could potentially add to my photography. I’m still learning to fly it but I’ve taken it out a few times and had a blast. It’s really exciting to see your own world from such a new perspective and the Mini 3 Pro has so many cool features that I really wonder what more drones can have.
And that brings us to this amazing video of Billy Kyle getting his hands on the newly released DJI Mavic 3 Classic. The DJI Mavic 3 Classic version is nearly identical to the standard DJI Mavic 3 and shares many of the same features, such as a 3-axis gimbal camera that meets strict hardware and software standards and is capable of 4K video at 60 fps, maximum 5.1K at 50 fps and 4K slow-motion at 120 fps. With the adjustable aperture from 2.8 to f/11, pilots can also take almost all lighting conditions into account. That sounds all well and good, so what’s different? The DJI Mavic 3 Classic doesn’t have the 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 28x hybrid zoom, making it nearly $600 cheaper. So how does Kyle feel after his first full flight on this new version? Check it out and let me know your opinion.
