DJI Mavic 3 Cine

Well, we finally now have a relatively small drone with a nice, large 4/3 sensor and ProRes.  This is a nice combination.  We just weren’t expecting it to cost $5,000.  We’re more excited because this means in the future there will be more and more drones with larger sensors and ProRes at a lower cost.

Still, if you need a solid, small drone for now that can produce an image that will stand up to greating, this is a great offering.
