DJI has announced the new Mavic 3 drone, replacing the previous Mavic 2 product. The drone is a foldable design, just like the Mavic 2.

DJI says that the new drone is a big improvement in a number of ways. In terms of the camera, a dual-camera system with a 28x hybrid zoom lens and a 24mm Hasselblad lens handle 20-megapixel stills and 5.1K video at 50 frames per second.

Drop that to 4K and you get a buttery-smooth 120-frames per second for slow-motion footage.

Flying is improved thanks to omnidirectional obstacle sensors with a 200-meter range. The drone should be able to avoid obstacles even if it’s flying in troublesome environments, although we’ll need to see reviews to be sure there.

Tracking has also seen some love with ActiveTrack 5.0 taking signals from GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellites for the sharpest of pinpoint location information.

Capable of flying for 46 minutes between charges, the new Mavic 3 will stay in the air for longer which can make capturing the perfect shot an easier and more enjoyable experience. Need more power? The 65W portable fast charger is an option, as is a convertible carrying bag and extended transmission distance.

The standard Mavic 3 package will cost $2,199, while buyers of the Fly More combo get more accessories and batteries for a cool $3,000. The Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo with 1TB SSD and support for Apple ProRes 422 HQ video recording is priced at a brain-melting $4,999.
