Who’s Excited, Anyone Else Excited, I’m So Excited!
There are only 34 minutes left for DJI to announce a new drone, will it be a new model for the mini-series or something different?
If you’ve just heard the news and want the best way to watch is by keeping track of the DJI YouTube channel, which already has people queuing up and waiting for the news to arrive as it happens, but it’s even better that we’ve included the live stream above and you can sit back and follow the announcement as soon as we hear about it on the air. Live on Digital Camera World.
The video drop is set to begin at 9am ET / 2pm GMT / 11pm EST
Mini 2 is a reshoot of the Mavic Mini; It requires a very light chassis for good geometry (the weight is non-negotiable) and addresses the areas that drone experts have complained about. Well, those who usually flew much more expensive drones mentioned, anyway. These were mainly: radio range, crosswind response, and a variety of camera features.
Now, the Mini 2 has the same cool new OcuSync 2.0 controller from the Mavic Air II, with automatic frequency shifting. Combined with more powerful engines and improved software, this drone can handle the Force 5 (not too bad for such a light vehicle). Photographers were rewarded with Raw, Exposure Bracketing (though only 3 stops), and DJI’s stunning robotic panorama features, while video enthusiasts finally have 4K under 250g (and a shiny logo near the lens to prove it), topped off with digital zoom (from Useful to have, not necessary to use).
This drone also has some file transfer improvements making it easier to switch from a drone to a phone, an extra color-changing light for,…well, it’s fun changing color with the remote.
Maybe the next update will bring a better reason? – You will know soon enough!
It’s no surprise that DJI drones top our list of the best drones. From a bit of high-flying fun, to the best drone selfie; From a photographer’s favorite to industrial and educational quadcopters, DJI puts on at least one show in each area. There is even a drone to spray crops! The range has been extended with three great drones in 2021, with the arrival of the DJI FPV, the foldable DJI Air 2S, the Mini SE (depending on where you live) and the Mavic 3.
It’s also important to keep in mind the latest drone rules on registration, which means in many places there is more paperwork related to drones over 250 grams.
But what can replace this new drone? How does old news stack up with potential news specs? lets take alook.
Just to name a few In the lively and very enthusiastic Youtube chat before the official lunch, many are looking forward to the DJI Mini 3 Pro, some even say:
“I’m going to order today, I’m undecided whether or not I want this smart controller or save the money and go with a regular one” or “I hope the mini 3 has a good hitch avoidance because the size is very useful for this kind of purpose”
Others suggest that small drones were within everyone’s reach but:
“All small drones used to be high quality and affordable, but now they are not affordable with additional features that ordinary people don’t want or need.”
“Does anyone know in advance if the RC PRO will be compatible with the Mini3? I hope so… I have a Mavic3Cine, I don’t want to spend more money on another monitor…”
I’m sure there are many readers sitting on either side of the fence at the moment, but in just over an hour we’ll know for sure what we can expect from the suspected drone launch!
Perhaps the only downside to having the monitor in the console is that the joysticks are now in a further position which might be less comfortable to hold, but until we get one in our hands, we won’t know if that’s the case.
Until we hear more information directly from DJI, we won’t be able to say the specs for sure, but if any of what’s been mentioned is true, it’s set to be a very exciting drone capable of capturing high quality photos and videos. As soon as we find out more information, we will update you.
From a leaked image we reported earlier, it looks like the remote control (at least on the Pro range) will have a screen built in instead of having to use your phone, making the controller smaller to handle. It should also be easy to use as there have been times when I was using my drone and it accidentally clicked on a notification popup and it took me to Instagram or Messenger unintentionally.
The camera also appears to be of a more square design than the traditional rectangle we’ve seen from the drone giant, which may be due to keeping the weight under 249 grams.
However, don’t get confused, even though this drone weighs less than your favorite cookie pack, you will still need to register this drone with local authorities and abide by the drone laws in your state or country.
The gimbal and camera module also seem to have been upgraded by a redesign, we’re used to seeing the camera held by the arms of the gimbal, however the new DJI Mini 3 takes a more interesting approach, and actually looks like a smaller version of the DJI OM 5 – which can be Be an interesting development.

The gimbal itself also appears to have benefited from a much-delayed redesign, with arms that rotate instead of flipping and a more square-shaped camera, all of which look like it could be one of the best drone cameras in, in a couple of hours we’ll know if all these rumors and leaks are Is it true or just a fantasy?

It’s expected to include features that were missing before, such as obstacle avoidance sensors, it could house a larger battery with autonomy of flight and maybe even a 1-inch sensor with f/1.7 lens – which should be game-changing no matter if you’re using it for photos or video clips.
