DJI has expanded its line of drones by introducing the new Air 3 model. The main innovations are a dual camera, as well as increased flight time on a single charge.
DJI Air 3 received two cameras that have the same sensor (48 MP, 1/1.3″ CMOS), but lenses with different focal lengths: wide-angle (82 degrees angle of view, equivalent to 24 mm, f/1.7) and telephoto (35 degrees angle of view, 70mm equivalent, f/2.8). Both cameras are capable of shooting in 4K/60fps HDR and 4K/100fps, as well as taking 48MP photos. They support 10-bit D-Log M and 10-bit HLG color modes DJI has also added the ability to shoot vertically with a resolution of 2.7K.In this mode, the drone shoots with both cameras at the same time.
The battery life of the drone has increased by 48% compared to the previous generation. The flight time of DJI Air 3 is up to 46 minutes. And the new charging hub allows you to transfer the remaining charge from two batteries to the third one, which currently has the most charge.
The new model also received the O4 HD Video Transmission system, which allows you to broadcast the image at a distance of up to 20 km. And the APAS 5.0 technology will protect the drone from collisions with various obstacles. In addition, the Air 3 offers features and modes such as FocusTrack, QuickShots, MasterShots and more.
DJI Air 3 is offered in three configurations. The basic price is $1099 (drone, one battery, RC-N2 controller and necessary accessories). There are also Fly More Combo versions for $1,349 and $1,549, which include additional batteries, accessories, and a charging hub (the most expensive kit also includes the more advanced RC2 controller).
