DJI Air 3 puts camera quantity over camera quality, and I think that's the right move!

The DJI Air 3 has been rumored and leaked a great deal, but until the final specs became clear, it still wasn't certain that DJI had prioritised the number of cameras over the physical size of the image sensor which – until now, anyway – has been the main indicator of image quality.

The launch of the DJI Air 3 seems to look at photography more in the way creatives do. It costs $1,099 / £962 / AU$ 1,699 with the standard RC-N2, or $1,549 / £1,379 / AU$ 2,349 in the Fly More Combo with the RC2, and boasts switchable dual cameras.
