Although the question is specifically about the Mavic 3 Classic, I wanted to ask it here, in the General forums.
So…is anyone thinking about getting a Mavic 3 Classic?
While I personally do not like the name…at all, I think the idea of a slightly less expensive Mavic 3 is a great idea. I think it should have retained the Pro name, however, I guess DJI’s naming convention works, as they had the Mavic 3 and 3 Cine prior. I guess you can’t call this new one a Mavic 3 Pro because then it would demean the Mavic 3 some I’d think.
When the Mavic 3 came out, I was slightly interested, as the 4/3" camera is a big deal. I didn’t care for the zoom lens whatsoever and always thought they should have a version with just the 4/3" sensor, at a lower price point.
The thing I like is that DJI offers compatibility with the DJI RC. Of course, this seems like a no-brainer, as the previous Mavic 3s have this ability as well, however, it is really nice to see it included as a package deal.
As someone that has a DJI RC for their Mini 3 Pro and Air 2S, it is only a logical progression to get a Mavic 3 Classic drone only package to add to the fleet.
But herein lies a conundrum, for me. The Mini 3 Pro perfectly fits into the mini and social media drone category. The Mavic 3 Classic can handle everything else, easily, and do so professionally. So where does that leave the beloved cost-to-feature-packed Air 2S? It almost seems like it is not necessary.
I honestly, although I love it to death, am considering letting go of our tried and true Air 2S, in favor of getting a 3 Classic. I’m a believer in not letting equipment sit unused for too long. If it isn’t making me money, it’s not doing me any good. In a pinch, the Mini 3 Pro could do what’s needed work-wise if the 3 Classic were to go down. I guess I’ll think more about it, as I have yet another drone to sell as well.
What are your thoughts on the Mavic 3 Classic?
