Gadgetren – Shortly after its arrival in the global market, DJI immediately brought the newest aerial drone in the Mavic 3 series family, namely the Mavic 3 Pro to Indonesia.
The Mavic 3 Pro drone also has another variant specifically for professional videographers or filmmakers in the Cine version. Unfortunately, it is not certain that this version of the Mavic 3 Pro Cine will be released in Indonesia, since the market is very segmented.
However, just the presence of the Mavic 3 Pro drone provides a new way for aerial videographers to increase their creativity when making videos through the advanced features provided.
Specifically, the results of recording and taking photos from the air through three cameras, this time carrying the Mavic 3 Pro. To be able to experience the complexity of the Mavic 3 Pro’s features along with the technology that supports its three cameras, the Gadgetren team also had the opportunity to test the drone firsthand.
I myself tried the Mavic 3 Pro after the launch event held by Erajaya Active Lifestyle as well as DJI’s official distributor in Indonesia. This time I tried to fly the drone using the RC Pro which has more comprehensive and advanced features than the standard remote control.
Pro remote features more function buttons, bright panel display, 32GB internal storage, mini HDMI output and external antenna.
The Mavic 3 Pro drone is naturally similar in shape to its sibling, the Mavic 3. However, the difference is in the camera size, where the Mavic 3 Pro has three cameras and the Mavic 3 only one, so the weight is way heavier beforehand.
Just like the Mavic 3, the Mavic 3 Pro uses three removable batteries. Battery charging is supported by fast charging. The battery size is rectangular. When the battery is full, the Mavic 3 Pro is claimed to be able to fly the drone for 43 minutes.
While the Pro remote that I use to fly the Mavic 3 Pro uses a built-in battery that can be charged directly with the help of a cable connection. Battery life when fully charged can reach 3 hours.
To operate the Mavic 3 Pro, you can say that it is very easy. This is because the operation buttons on both the drone body and the RC Pro have also been implemented on the Mavic 3, Mavic 3 Cine and Air 2S.
Using the RC Pro that feels right in the hand when you hold it, I flew the Mavic 3 Pro by aiming the analog on the left and combining it with the analog on the right to move the viewing angle up and down.
When flying high with the camera facing me, I can select the flight speed via the button at the top of the screen right in the middle. For very fast speeds, you can select the S or Sport button, for cinematic S buttons, and for normal speeds, select the N button.
After getting the correct position above, I also tried to take panoramic images using the photo mode. To steer the gimbal, you can also move the button on the left near the middle finger.
I then took a landscape photo with the Mavic 3 Pro telephoto lens which has 12MP resolution using a 166mm focal length and 1/2″ sensor using 1x, 3x and 7x optical zoom.
The result is a clear and detailed image with bright colors at up to 7x magnification. In addition, the Mavic 3 Pro telephoto lens can also take up to 28x hybrid zoom photos with clear details.
With 28x hybrid zoom, the Mavic 3 Pro can also record with explore mode, which automatically switches between cameras for more creative results.
Meanwhile, with a 20MP Hasselblad CMOS 4/3 camera using a 24mm focal length, I was able to capture wide-angle views for selectable photos from 180º to 360º.
Shooting panoramas or views with a wide variety of wide angles can also use the panorama feature where the Mavic 3 Pro camera will automatically take it to the best option.
In addition to these two cameras, the Mavic 3 Pro also has a 1/1.3? which has 48MP resolution with f/2.8 aperture support, 3x optical zoom and 70mm focal length. When it comes to video recording, through the RC Pro I can choose to shoot video at resolutions up to 5.1K at 50fps, 4K at 120fps, up to 1080 at 120fps.
Then, too, the video capture settings on the Mavic 3 Pro have 120 fps slow-motion video with DCI 4K mode, Hyperlapse video and 10-bit D-Log or 10-bit D-Log M that offers even more vivid color video results without the need to go through processing processing.
Intelligent when flying around trees or high-rise buildings, the Mavic 3 Pro is able to avoid obstacles in front of it thanks to its equipment with eight wide-angle vision sensors or Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing and APAS 5.0.
In addition, the Mavic 3 Pro uses the DJI O3 + transmission system that allows it to be controlled from a distance of up to 15 km. The drone can also safely and efficiently return to the pilot when the battery level drops using the Advanced RTH function.
With prices starting at IDR 33,750,000 for the RC Pro variant, IDR 42,990,000 for the RC Pro Combo variant and IDR 53,290,000 for the RC Pro Pro Combo variant, the Mavic 3 Pro drone can be ordered in Indonesia via e Shopee commerce Tokopediaand official retailers Blibli and Erajaya Active Lifestyle.
