DJI today released a major firmware update (to version v01.00.0500) for both its Fly app (version 1.5.8) and its new Mavic 3 drone. It brings to the Mavic 3 important features that were already announced at launch in early November 2021 but not immediately available, such as QuickShots, Panorama Mode, QuickTransfer, Burst Shooting, Color Display Assist for D-Log and much more as well as some user-suggested improvements.
DJI Mavic 3
Back in December, there was a firmware update that followed up with some of the important features like smart flight mode functions like MasterShots, HyperLapse and FokusTrack.
But it&s not just Mavic 3 owners who will benefit from the Fly app upgrade, Pro users of the www.slashcam.de/news/single/DJI-Air-2s-Drohne--Grosses-Upgrade-der-Mavic-Air-2--16472.html I(Air 2S) or the Mavic Air 2 will too, at least if they need to adjust the camera&s exposure settings more often. These were previously rather awkward to access. So the update to the Fly app streamlines the user interface of the camera settings and makes it easier to access parameters such as ISO, shutter speed and white balance - making it a bit more like the more professional DJI Go app.
In addition, the Android version of the Fly app now includes support for the new DJI RC Pro remote control and allows you to save files to a microSD card and output live view via HDMI only. To use these features, you must update to the latest firmware version of the remote control.
DJI Mavic 3 Cine
The Mavic 3
. The Mavic 3 comes in two versions, the standard as well as the ProRes-enabled Cine version. The biggest new feature is the new dual Hasselblad camera system with a camera for normal flight photography with a 24mm lens, as well as a camera specialized for telephoto photography with a 162mm 7x zoom lens (28x via digital hybrid zoom).
In addition, the 5.1K main camera with its new 4/3 CMOS sensor represents a significant upgrade over the 1" cameras of the Mavic 2 or Mavic Air 2S ( visible here in our sensor size comparison ). Aimed at professional users, the Mavic 3 Cine model can also record video using Apple&s ProRes 422ProRes 422 explained in the glossary HQ codec at a bitrate of up to 3,772 Mbps. This is - apart from accessories such as the additional ND filter set as well as the new RC Pro remote control - the only distinguishing feature from the standard version of the Mavic 3 in the form of the Fly More Combo.
