The Mavics compared

This latest leaked image from @JasperEllens on Twitter gives us a clearer idea of why the Mavic 3 Pro is expected to be slightly heavier than the current Mavic 3, and so will likely be a ‘C2 class’ drone in Europe.

That camera module is, understandably, a lot bigger with that payload of three cameras, which is the most we’ve seen so far on a DJI drone. I just hope that extra girth doesn’t hit the battery life too much – the rumors are predicting 42 minutes of flight time, but as we know that usually translates to around half an hour of actual shooting from a charge.

Yesterday’s big DJI leaks

DJI launches are traditionally leakier than a colander and that’s proven to be the case again – yesterday we saw a massive amount of DJI Mavic 3 Pro images, specs and potential pricing appear from reliable sources on Twitter, revealing a lot about what to expect from today’s launch.

The headlines? The Mavic 3 Pro could surprisingly cost the same as the current DJI Mavic 3, despite its introduction of three cameras. That third camera will also likely effectively be the same as the DJI Mini 3 Pro‘s main camera, only with a longer 70mm focal length. 

In less good news for Europe-based, it seems the Mavic 3 Pro’s slightly increased weight – it’s rumored to weigh 958g, or 963g in its Cine version – could make it a C2 class drone, which would rule it out of flying directly over people (without special permissions). Still, those two zoom lenses could mean you don’t need to…

Where’s the DJI Mavic 3 gone?

One of the most interesting things about today’s DJI launch is the impact it could have on the rest of DJI’s Mavic series. I’ve just checked the DJI store (opens in new tab) and the DJI Mavic 3 has now effectively vanished, with a message saying it’s “no longer available” in most regions.

Does that mean the DJI Mavic 3 is going to be replaced, or simply that it’s currently unavailable while DJI changes its pricing? It seems unlikely that DJI would lose the two-camera option in its Mavic 3 lineup, but we’ll find out soon enough.

Hello, and welcome to our DJI liveblog for what will almost certainly be the launch of the DJI Mavic 3 Pro. I’m TechRadar’s news editor (and former cameras editor), so am looking forward to guiding you through today’s launch – even if it might tempt me into an expensive upgrade from my DJI Mini 3 Pro.

To start with, here’s a reminder of how to watch the DJI Mavic 3 Pro livestream. We’ve embedded the video above, so you can watch along here or on YouTube. The time to set a reminder for is 9am ET / 2pm BST / 11pm AEST, depending on where you are in the world. But as that’s still a little way off, we’ll be warming things up here with a look at all the latest leaks and rumors.

And because it’s a DJI launch, there are a lot of those…
