Does anyone know the pixel size of the Mavic 3's main camera sensor?Both in the Air 2s and in the new Mini 3 Pro they are 2.4 µm.
Thank you

Do the arithmetic.
There are 5280×3956 pixels on an imaging area of 17.3 mm × 13.0 mm

That is the number of pixels, I look for the size of each one

11.09 µm².

By the way, Panasonic GH5 and DJI Mavic 3 use the same sensor, Sony EXMOR IMX272.

Thank you.
That's the data I was looking for.

We already know that the larger the pixel, the better results we will obtain.
In the Air 2s and in the new Mini 3 Pro, the pixel pitch is 2.4 µm.
In the Mavic 3 it's 3.3 µm.

By the way, where did you get the data that pixel size for both Air 2s and Mini 3 Pro are 2.4 µm?

Air 2S has a 1" sensor (20MP). Mini 3 Pro has a 1/1.3" sensor (48MP). Even without calculation, I can tell their sensor pixel size are quite different.

You can see these data on the Dji website, both in the specifications of the Air 2s, and in those of the Mini 3

Oops, I sent the specifications of the Air 2s in Spanish, look in the "CAMARA" section

Aha! DJI's false advertising is playing tricks on consumers here.

Mini 3 Pro has a 1.3" sensor, about 60% of the size when compared to the 1" sensor inside Air 2S. And Air 2S has 20MP pixel count. For both models to have the SAME pixel size, Mini 3 Pro's sensor should have 60% of the pixel count of Air 2S sensor instead, which is 20MP x 60% = 12MP.

With a 48MP sensor inside Mini 3 Pro, DJI is doing pixel-binning here, combining four pixels into one, to produce result comparable to larger sensors.

The biggest downside of this approach is your resolution is effectively divided by four when taking a pixel-binned shot. That means a binned shot from a 48MP sensor in Mini 3 Pro is actually 12MP. If you want to capture 48MP images, the actual pixel size is 0.6 µm instead. The noise level must be terrible, if you want to capture 48MP images at low light, high ISO condition.

www.dpreview.com has a sample gallery for Mini 3 Pro, and most of the sample images, except two, are 12MP. And the two 48MP images, when zoomed in at 100%, look soft and lack of detail. This explains why.

I try to matchmove a shot from the mavic 3 with nukeX.
I need the film back size to calculate the tracking accurately.
Does anyone of you know the sensor size in „mm“ when filming in 4k? Because I guess 17.3mm x 13mm refers to shooting in full resolution. Thanks in advance!
