DJI Cine mode adjusts how the drone moves by slowing it’s braking and creating more fluid flights and video recordings. It adjusts how the drone flies by slowing its braking and movement, creating easy maneuverability and video captures.
This new drone is great for quickshots and even low light photography. Hyperlapse video recording allows you to easily the camera position between each photo. Hybrid zoom, which is commonly found in smartphone cameras. It is a combination of optical zoom and digital zoom improved by AI. The technology, through software magic, aims to improve the capability of optical zoom to provide natural images at higher zoom levels. Please consult your models user manual to determine zoom length. It may also be available through a software update.

The DJI O3 Video Transmission System (O3+ transmission) takes advantage of a new upgraded set of dual antennas to bring video transmission at distances of up to 12 km., which is FCC compliant with no obstructions and utilizing obstacle avoidance.
Additional anti-interference capabilities such as omnidirectional obstacle sensing and RTTH further improve transmission stability in cities and other difficult environments. Also included is APAS 5.0 which is an advanced piloting system. When activated the DJI Mavic 3 Pro will automatically attempt to bypass obstacles when flying forward with the remote controller. It is constantly searching the surroundings to avoid obstacles.
