DJI mini 3 pro official with vertical shooting and more

DJI majorly known for its drones has announced its latest drone the DJI mini 3 pro which features some amazing specs for beginners who want to explore the pro side of flying drones and capturing memories with a compact setup and fair pricing.

At under 249 grams, Mini 3 Pro’s combination of weight, safety, and performance arrives as a new resource for content creators on the move and new pilots looking to fly.  With this portable, powerful aerial camera, more people around the world will enjoy safe flight and access a large world of visual storytelling. Like its predecessors the Mavic Mini, Mini 2, and Mini SE, it keeps the same compact foldability for packing and taking anywhere. But Mini 3 Pro was made with more built-in features than any other DJI drone its size, thanks to enhanced flight performance, camera system, battery life, and intelligent features that were previously only available in the Air and Mavic series.

In a first for the Mini drone series, DJI Mini 3 Pro features Tri-Directional Obstacle Sensing, consisting of forward, backward, and downward visual sensors. The forward and downward sensors have a wider field of view, providing seamless coverage for better route planning and environmental awareness. These sensors also enable Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) 4.0, which automatically detects and finds a safer path around obstacles during flight. In addition, these sensors also enable the entire FocusTrack suite, which allows users to select a subject that the drone automatically keeps within the center of the frame during flight while automatically planning a safe flight route. Thanks to its upgraded sensing system, DJI Mini 3 Pro is the first of the Mini lineup to integrate APAS and FocusTrack.

To the camera system, the DJI mini 3 pro brings an enhanced imaging system. A 1/1.3-inch CMOS camera sensor has dual native ISO, a capturing technology previously only available on cinema and some micro single cameras. It also has an aperture of f/1.7 and shoots images at up to 48MP and video at up to 4K/60fps. To help capture high-quality easy-to-upload content, the camera rotates 90 degrees for True Vertical Shooting, creating incredible photos and videos in portrait orientation without quality-cutting image zooming and cropping. You can choose between a normal color profile or D-Cinelike which will allow you to do deeper color grading to your liking.

Even though DJI Mini 3 Pro is under 249 grams, it still arrives with an extended flight time at a maximum flight of 34 minutes. To give users more choice, Mini 3 Pro also introduces an extended flight battery option for the first time in DJI drone history. The Intelligent Flight Battery Plus allows for a maximum flight time of 47 minutes, an unprecedented capability for a drone this size. Pairing perfectly with this extended flight time, Mini 3 Pro features the O3 transmission system, which delivers a crisp 1080p live view from a distance as far as 12 km.

To meet everyone’s needs, DJI also is expanding its remote controller lineup with DJI RC, a lightweight remote controller with a 5.5-inch built-in touchscreen. With the DJI Fly app already integrated, users don’t need to mount their smartphone to their controller, freeing their personal devices during the flying experience.

For pricing, DJI mini 3 pro starts at $699 with no remote controller, $759 including DJI RC-N1 remote, and $909 including DJI RC remote. In Kenya, the price is expected to start at Ksh 130,000 including the new DJI RC remote and is estimated to start selling next month via various outlets. For people planning to operate this drone in Kenya or buy it, I would advise you to check on the laid-out regulations here to avoid setbacks.
