For all Mini Lovers out there: After the release of the new Mavic and Inspire drones, we all had a hard time...
I constantly thought about getting a new drone, but when I finished my drone reel for 2023, I thought, "Heck no! The Mini 3 Pro is still such a capable drone, and it still punches way above its price tag."
If you're a drone enthusiast or simply love seeing the world from a fresh angle, this video is for you! Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the flight! ;)
yours, Ferdinand

Amazing show reel.    I do love my Mini 3 Pro.  I have the Air 2 and Air 2S but I'm always pulling out the Mini 3 Pro.

Hey RDB - thx!
I think they are great too in terms of image quality. The weight was one noticeable difference, when I finally choose the Mini 3 Pro over the Air 2S.

BTW - how is your Air 2S performing when it comes to windy conditions, compared to the M3P. That's the only thing, which gives me headaches - especially when I'm up in the mountains.

Thx Blériot - appreciate! I like it how DJI gradually improved the Mini 3 Pro via firmware updates since it launched last year..

I'm wondering if they'll continue to do that in the future...

You're very welcome Ferdinand.  On really windy days my Air 2S is the drone of choice.  The Mini 3 Pro does fight the winds quite well for its size but the Air 2S is just so much better at handling the winds.

yap - I was suspecting that. I think the weight is something, which they won't be able to fix via a firmware update!

Do you think cruise control for videos (like it’s in the Mavic 3 Classic!?) could be an option for a firmware update?

It's debatable just how many features they can cram into  an inevitably small processor
But it might help in some situations.

Yeah, a FW update will not fix that issue.  Still, all in all a great little drone.

I think now is a good time to get the Mini 3 Pro in 2023. The drone still offers great performance and there are already some good deals around the corner.

I haven't tested it myself, but the Googles V2 should work after the latest firmware update for the Mini 3 Pro. Note that there are some limitations if you combine it with the RC controller, which is not officially supported by DJI to work with the Googles.

Hope that helped!

Thank you Paul!

Yes, in some shots I used filters like the new Freewell ND/Mist filter (on the snowy mountains), or a wide angle lens (for the snowy road in the woods from above).

They work great and expand the use cases for the drone.
The mist filter in particular make it easier to pair the footage with my Sony FX30 for narrative filmmaking, where I usually also use mist filters.

I got a couple of questions for you Captain..

1) Are you 100% positive that all the clips in your video are from a Mini 3 Pro?

2) The weight of the wide angle is listed at 12 grams. Have you noticed any strange sound coming from the gimbal's servos when the wide angle lens is on the camera?

Nice video...

Hi Burt!

1) Yes, every clip was shot by myself with the Mini 3 Pro. Except for those 5 shots, where the drone itself is shown inflight.

2) The higher weight of the wide angle is noticeable. But I hadn't any issues with servo sounds on mine and the Mini 3 Pro handles it with ease. Usually the drone recognises the wide angle lens during the gimbal calibration on startup. Note, that I use DJI's original wide angle lens. 3rd party wide angles may be more heavy and might cause problems..

Best regards,
Ferdinand

Thanks for the info. I have been researching mist filters as I have not used them before. I shoot with a Panasonic GH5 so hope the drone video will blend well. I ordered some ND and PL filters so will have a few things to play with. After a few test flights, the need for a gradient filter has become very apparent for certain situations.

I tested both. It's great, that they combined the VND with a mist filter. In my tests it blends in quiet nicely with the softness of my FX30 used with a mist filter. I'm going to release a video shot on the Sony FX30 and the Mini 3 Pro - both used with mist filter - to demonstrate how you can match these two.

Alone that they made a VND from 2-5 and 6-9 stops is great in my opinion. Therfore you don't have to switch (fixed) ND's all the time.

The gradient filters a great to, especially for photos. For video you can use them too - maybe here you are a bit more limited to certain shots. You can also kind of mitigate this problem of limited dynamic range by taken two shots of a scene. One exposed more for the sky, neglecting the details and shadows on the ground a bit. And then a second one, where you pan more downwards and now exposing for the shadows. In post you use both shots and make a cut between them.

Thanks! Your reply made me think that a "duplicate shot" feature in a drone would be gold. Imagine a menu item where you set the drone to record not just the shot but all the GPS, directional, gimbal, etc. then you perform your shot. Then you can change your camera settings and instruct the drone to redo the shot. Would not be 100% identical but easy enough to stitch together in post. Who knows, maybe some of the drones already do this.
