Digital Camera World Verdict

The DJI Mavic 3 Pro's three-camera system feels better adapted to creatives than the original Mavic 3, with hardware improvements and better software. There are some inevitable inconsistencies, and the main camera is clearly best, but this is a great solution for higher-end videographers and photographers.

When DJI first teased the announcement of what we now know as the Mavic 3 Pro, they used the phrase 'Inspiration in Focus.' We thought that might be code for "A DJI Inspire 3, but one that you can actually afford." 

Why? Because the previous Inspire 2 came in two editions, a cinematographer edition with SSD recording in the five-figure price bracket and a much cheaper version not much more than Mavic 3 Pro.
