Confirmed by this are also the highlights of the next generation Mavic such as an extended flight time (46 minutes) and the Hasselblad dual camera system (telephoto and wide-angle). Not confirmed, however, is the ability to also record in Apple ProRes format and the new 1TB of storage (the mention of an internal SSD in the new rumors, however, suggests both, as recording in ProRes requires both a lot of storage space and fast memory). Also confirmed by the new images are the new positioning of the obstacle avoidance sensors and the battery positioned at the back in a box.
What both models can do
. And it&s clear that there will be two versions of the prosumer-targeting Mavic 3, a standard (possibly christened "Pro") model priced around 1,600, and a much more expensive Cine model with enhanced capabilities for even more professional video capture. Both versions can record 5.2K video, shoot photos at 20 megapixel resolution, and feature the smart flight and shooting modes already known from other models, such as HyperLapse, ActiveTrack, QuickShot, Panorama, and the automatic obstacle avoidance functions using special sensors with the help of APAS (Advanced Pilot Assistance System). Conveniently, it should be possible to charge the battery in the drone via USB-C.

Mavic 3 Cine Version
. The leak of the instruction manual has already revealed exact details about the Mavic 3 Cine: for example, the telephoto camera features a 1/2" sensor with a resolution of 12 megapixels, a focal length of 160mm (35mm equivalent), an aperture of f/4. 4 and an angle of view of 15°, and the wide-angle camera has a 4/3" sensor with 20 megapixels of resolution, an angle of view of 84°, a focal length of 24mm (35mm equivalent) and an aperture of f/2.8-f/11. Presumably only the Cine model will offer the ability to record in Apple ProRes.
The Mavic 3 Cine weighs 920 grams, uses an internal SSD for storage, and can stay airborne for a maximum of 46 minutes (in calm conditions and at a speed of 25 km/h) - an extreme improvement over the previous model, the Mavic 2 Pro, which only had a maximum flight time of 31 minutes. It is also said to have a "1Gbps Lightspeed Data Cable", presumably for fast transfer of video data to a computer (though USB 3.2 Gen 1×1 aka USB 3.0 aka USB 3.1 is already significantly faster at 5Gbps).

New Smart Controller 2.0
. The new Smart Controller (V 2.0), which is reserved for the Cine model, has a 5.5" display with a brightness of 1,000 nits and a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. One battery charge (5,000mAh) is enough for three hours of operation. It can be connected to the network via WLAN or 4G dongle.
The image transmission system of the new Pro remote control (OcuSync 3.0?) is said to have a significantly increased range than before, and HD video can thus be transmitted live over a distance of 15 km instead of the 10 km of the Mavic 2 Pro - however, this will probably be limited to a smaller distance in Europe.
The technical specifications of the Mavic 3 (Cine)
known so far. - Models: standard (Pro?) and Cine - new anti-collision system - Front and rear sensors moved to corners and apparently large wide-angle sensor - Hasselblad dual camera: upper camera with 7x zoom, 1/2" sensor, 12 megapixels, 160mm focal length (35mm equivalent) and f/4.4; lower camera with 5.7K video capture, 4/3" sensor, 24mm wide angle (35mm equivalent), f2.8 aperture; f2.8-f/11 plus 16mm adapter lens - 16mm lens adapter - Apple ProRes recording support - 1TB (or even 2TB) internal SSD in the Cine model, but still a slot for microSD cards as well - Flight time of 46 minutes maximum - 5,000 or 6,000mAh Li-ion battery (not sure) - Battery case on the back, like on the DJI Mini 2 - Camera gimbal with an integrated auto lock feature - Uses the same wireless system as the DJI Air 2S - New Smart Controller for the Cine model - Video transmission of FullHD via OcuSync 3.0 with 15 km range
Prices and release date of the Mavic 3
. According to Jasper Ellens, the Mavic 3 will be unveiled on Nov. 15 in three offering variants: the Mavic 3 (presumably priced at 1,600), then a DJI Mavic 3 Fly More Combo with some accessories such as two extra batteries, more extra propellers and a carrying case (both with the old RC-N1 remote), and finally the Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo for probably 1,000 more with the new Pro remote.
