According to the current rumor mill, we can expect a DJI Mavic 3 Classic in the near future. This is supposed to be a slimmed-down and cheaper version of the previous Mavic 3 models. What is behind it?

Rumors about new DJI drones accompany us regularly throughout the year. Surprisingly, these rumors usually turn out to be true, which is either due to well-informed leakers or clever marketing by DJI. Now there are new rumors about another Mavic 3 model. This is said to be the DJI Mavic 3 Classic, which is said to be the cheapest of all previous versions to launch. A photo that has now appeared probably reveals where DJI is cutting corners with the new model.

Mavic 3 Classic with only one camera

The image shared on Twitter shows a drone with the words “Mavic 3 Classic” and reveals the drone’s camera system. It can be clearly seen that this model only has one camera. Unlike the current Mavic 3 models, which consist of main and telephoto cameras, the Mavic 3 Classic probably has “only” the main camera. Judging from the photo, it seems to be identical to the drone’s previous main camera.

If that is indeed the case, the DJI Mavic 3 Classic would have a 24mm lens, an aperture of f/2.8 to f/11, a 4/3 CMOS sensor, and would shoot photos at 20 megapixels and video at up to 5.1K.

According to the current rumor mill, we can expect a DJI Mavic 3 Classic in the near future. This is supposed to be a slimmed-down and cheaper version of the previous Mavic 3 models. What is behind it?

Whether there will be changes to the sensor or what other differences there are to the previous Mavic 3 models cannot be deduced from the pictures taken so far. These are still unconfirmed rumors. The authenticity of the pictures cannot be confirmed either, but they seem credible if you consider the past leaks of the Twitter account.

Why a Mavic 3 Classic?

The question now is why DJI should launch a Mavic 3 Classic. When the DJI Mavic 3 was released, many potential buyers were deterred by the high purchase price. Compared to the predecessor model, the Mavic 2, buyers had to pay a lot more. This probably led to many drone pilots preferring to switch to cheaper alternatives or keep their previous model. DJI could aim to win back some of these frightened buyers with a somewhat slimmed-down Mavic 3 Classic at a reduced price. The decisive factor here will be how much the missing telephoto camera can push down the price of the Mavic 3 Classic.

When will the DJI Mavic 3 Classic be released?
