DJI, the global leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, is now making the world’s best camera drone more accessible with the Mavic 3 Classic, giving creators a new way to experience the unrivaled Hasselblad camera. and the unbeatable flight performance of the Mavic 3 series. The Mavic 3 Classic features the same 20-megapixel 4/3 CMOS camera, 46-minute maximum flight time, and O3+ transmission system as the Mavic drone 3 of origin, without additional telephoto lens. Mavic 3 Classic is compatible with existing DJI RC Pro, DJI RC and DJI RC-N1 to deliver premium performance in a more affordable package, making it easy for drone makers to upgrade to the best flying camera on the market.
“The Mavic 3 series has always set the standard for what a drone can do, from the original Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine that transformed aerial photography and cinematography, to the Mavic 3 Enterprise and Mavic 3 platforms. Thermal for professional work,” said Ferdinand. Wolf, creative director at DJI. “Now DJI is moving forward to give more creators access to the photographic excellence and operational reliability that characterizes the Mavic 3 series. With the launch of Mavic 3 Classic, we hope to see even more creators use our high-end tools and push their creativity beyond their old limits.
The best camera for your best content
With the launch of Mavic 3 Classic, more creators will have full access to the vast possibilities offered by the Mavic 3 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera. For video work, the camera captures up to 5.1K/50fps, 4K/60fps and 1080p/60fps using H.264 and H.265 encoders. In slow motion applications, Mavic 3 Classic captures video at 4K/120fps and 1080p/200fps. Its 24mm equivalent focal length lens opens to an adjustable aperture ranging from f/2.8 to f/11 for 12.8 stops of native dynamic range. When light hits the 20-megapixel sensor, it’s processed in 12-bit RAW for photography and 10-bit D-Log for video, allowing the camera to rise to the challenge of accurately conveying vivid colors , highlights and rich shadow details of our world.
Because the Mavic 3 Classic camera is based on Hasselblad’s groundbreaking research and development, it’s designed to capture lifelike detail that matches what the human eye sees. Hasselblad’s Natural Color solution directly produces photos and videos with true, accurate color, and its HLG system for high dynamic range photography generates footage that does not require color adjustment in post-production. Even in low-light scenarios such as sunrises and sunsets, a night shot video mode reduces visual noise to enable sharper shots.
Smart in the air and on your screen
Accurately capturing images of the world is just the beginning of the creative process. Mavic 3 Classic is designed to put the power of DJI flight technology to work for every creator in a simple, easy-to-use interface that works smoothly right out of the box, is customizable for the most precise control and product easily images and videos for sharing, editing and post-production.
Creators who honed their skills on earlier versions of DJI drones will be free to fly for up to 46 minutes with the Mavic 3 Classic, which uses the same batteries as the rest of the Mavic 3 series. The O3+ transmission system for control flight and video can display stellar 1080p/60fps video at a range of up to 15 kilometers (9.3 miles). Transmission distance is an indicator of signal strength, and Mavic 3 Classic should always fly within the pilot’s line of sight.
From the first moments in the air, the Mavic 3 Classic’s suite of intelligent algorithms can begin tracking subjects, framing footage and automatically moving the camera in cinematic flight patterns. The ActiveTrack 5.0 system uses multiple vision sensors to recognize subjects, lock them into frame, and move the drone and camera together to create professional quality videos. With MasterShots, shooting and editing functions are automated to make the creative process simple and efficient, even for new pilots who are still developing their personal visual language in the air.
Mavic 3 Classic features the automated QuickShots shooting modes that DJI pilots love, plus continued support for timelapse, hyperlapse, and panorama shooting styles. The new Cruise Control feature allows pilots to set a constant flight speed for their drone, allowing them to focus on imaging while minimizing any camera shake from manual speed control.
Once Mavic 3 Classic is back in the field, turning raw footage into classic content is easier than ever. The High-Speed QuickTransfer option enables fast image and video downloads directly from the drone to a mobile phone via Wi-Fi 6 at speeds of up to 80MB per second without connecting to the remote control.
Safe and certified
Mavic 3 Classic offers a full range of safety features to help pilots avoid hazards and other aircraft while creating incredible content. It has eight visual sensors to detect obstacles in all directions, transmitting this information to the APAS 5.0 system which can avoid obstacles and independently plan routes around them. Its advanced return-to-home system scans the environment up to 200 meters away, then can plot the best path to its launch point and follow that route if necessary.
DJI has always led the drone industry in safety technology, and Mavic 3 Classic continues this proud tradition. It is equipped with an AirSense ADS-B receiver, allowing drone pilots to detect nearby planes and helicopters transmitting ADS-B signals – often before the pilot can see or hear those planes. DJI’s GEO 2.0 geofencing system gives drone pilots information about airspace restrictions and potential flight hazards in the area, providing an extra margin of safety for flight operations.

Like all DJI products, Mavic 3 Classic is designed with data security in mind. Creators never have to share their photos, videos, or flight logs with anyone, unless they choose to. The drone never needs to be connected to the internet during flight, and the transmission systems are encrypted for both the drone’s video signals and its flight controls. Even during high-level photo and video missions, DJI’s data privacy systems provide the discretion and protection that sensitive missions demand.

Mavic 3 Classic is ready for the next generation of compliance with regulatory systems worldwide. In the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved the Mavic 3 Classic’s means of compliance with remote identification rules, as it has done for other drones in the Mavic 3 series. In Europe, the The complete Mavic 3 series has received the world’s first C1 certificate under the new European drone regulations, allowing users to fly in the new open A1 category without passing an expensive remote pilot license exam.
