With the current announcement of the brand new DJI Mavic 3, one of many massive promoting factors was that new dual-camera system. The principle digital camera is a 20-megapixel 4/3 CMOS sensor with a variable f/2.8-11 aperture and a 24mm equal focal size. The secondary digital camera is a 12-megapixel 1/2″ CMOS sensor with a 162mm equal lens and a hard and fast f/4.4 aperture.
DJI combines these two cameras permitting for a hybrid zoom system. However is it actually all it’s cracked as much as be? Particularly when that second digital camera solely shoots jpg and never RAW or DNG? Effectively, the parents at DroneXL posted a video that reveals the way it actually seems to zoom on the DJI Mavic 3. And, it’s not superb, however it’s fairly spectacular.
To create the hybrid zoom, the drone primarily makes use of digital zoom on the broad 24mm equal digital camera to scale up the view till it roughly matches the native discipline of view of the secondary digital camera. Then it switches to the secondary digital camera and digital zoom is used to scale that up, too. You may see the plain artifacting of a scaled-up digital picture within the video instance above, however it does appear to be fairly good.
With merchandise like Topaz Gigapixel AI available on the market, although, should you’re not in a rush and you’ve got the time to resize it in submit, you is likely to be higher off doing that than making an attempt to do it in-camera for the perfect ultimate consequence.
Set to their native resolutions with none zooming, although, the footage seems very spectacular. I can’t wait to see what sorts of issues folks shoot with the Mavic 3 as soon as it turns into obtainable!
