In the last few days, first images of a new model for DJI&s Mavic 3 series have surfaced from well-known DJI leakers OsitaLV, Jasper Ellens and DealsDrone, namely a Mavic 3 Pro. Particularly noticeable are the three cameras on the front - according to the rumors, a 70-75mm telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom will join the previous two cameras - a 5.1K Hasselblad with 4/3" CMOS and an equivalent focal length of 24mm, and a 4K telephoto camera with 1/2" CMOS and a focal length of 162mm. How much the third camera affects the Mavic 3&s weight of 895 grams so far will be interesting to see.

Leaked photos of a matching 4x ND filter set, which allows all three cameras to reduce light incidence, have also already been released.

A photo of the packaging of the new Mavic 3 Pro has also surfaced - on the one hand, this indicates that it won&t be long until the release, and on the other hand, it also shows that the Mavic 3 Pro will also be available together with the RC Pro remote control, which costs around 1,000 euros and has some advantages over the standard RC controller. For example, the RC Pro&s 5.5" display is 1,000 nits bright, it supports third-party apps, and it has four antennas and a mini-HDMI output.
Having just unveiled the new Inspire 3, there is a big gap between this roughly ,000 new top-of-the-line model with 8K recording in CinemaDNG and ProRes RAW and the Mavic 3 Cine in DJI&s product portfolio. Perhaps the new Mavic 3 Pro will fill this gap, there would even be room for a Cine Plus version if the Mavic 3 Pro is placed below the Mavic 3 Cine.
