With the recent announcement of the new DJI Mavic 3, one of the big selling points was that new dual-camera system. The main camera is a 20-megapixel 4/3 CMOS sensor with a variable f/2.8-11 aperture and a 24mm equivalent focal length. The secondary camera is a 12-megapixel 1/2″ CMOS sensor with a 162mm equivalent lens and a fixed f/4.4 aperture.
DJI combines these two cameras allowing for a hybrid zoom system. But is it really all it’s cracked up to be? Especially when that second camera only shoots jpg and not RAW or DNG? Well, the folks at DroneXL posted a video that shows how it really looks to zoom on the DJI Mavic 3. And, it’s not amazing, but it’s pretty impressive.
