Following last month’s launch of its smallest and lightest drone, Mini 3 Pro, DJI has released a new upgrade for its flagship drone Mavic 3 which was released late in 2021.

The new firmware (v01.00.0700) also covers its more expensive, pro-aimed, Mavic 3 Cine drone.

The upgrade adds lots of new features including some which should have been included at launch.

The company also dropped firmware updates for its RC-N1 Remote Controller and DJI RC Pro Remote Controller.

There are also updates to both the DJI Fly iOS app (v1.6.4) and the DJI Fly Android app (v1.6.4).

Key features

One of the biggest additions for pro users is the ability to now record in ProRes 422 and ProRes 422 LT on the Mavic 3 Cine.

While Mavic 3’s tele camera gets a big boost in usability.

The new update means the tele camera now supports 25p, 30p, and 50p when shooting in HD or UHD.

There is also the ability to shoot at 120/200fps for ultra slo-mo clips.

And you get manual controls for ISO and shutter speed.

The effect of the improvements means the 7x optical zoom on the tele camera is now capable of capturing images and videos which are a big step up in quality.

Another major new feature is Nifty Mode for Bypassing Objects when using APAS 5.0.

This supposedly results in smoother footage when avoiding objects during flights and it is intended for use at high speed.

It also comes with a warning that it is not as safe as Normal Mode so use it at your own risk.

Mini 3 Pro

Last month DJI introduced Mini 3 Pro, the company’s smallest and lightest drone.

The 249g device got a significant upgrade over predecessors with a new design, 4K 60fps video, larger image sensor, larger aperture, obstacle avoidance sensors – and the option to use a bigger battery (which pushes it over the 250g threshold).

Using the standard battery, the flight time is 34 minutes.

Mini 3 Pro costs from €879.

DJI RC

DJI also released a new remote controller last month, called DJI RC.

It is a much lighter and stripped-down version of the DJI RC Pro.

Mavic 3 now supports the new DJI RC

It features a bright 700 nit 5.5in built-in screen that eliminates the need for a phone.

The DJI RC is currently only available with the Mini 3 Pro but the new Mavic 3 firmware update includes support for DJI RC so it will now work with both drones.
