From its 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad Camera and 28x Hybrid Zoom Camera, to its omnidirectional obstacle sensors with a maximum 200-meter range, to its redesigned batteries that provide up to 46 minutes of flight time, the Mavic 3 provides unprecedented flight performance and a peerless content creation experience. Its upgraded hardware and software can process 5.1K video at 50 frames per second in supple and nuanced color with heightened low-light sensitivity. It also supports 4K/120fps for higher-quality results for slow-motion footage.
