Mavic 3 Pro can now take gigapixel 360 photos

DJI Mavic 3 Pro can now take aerial 360 photos with its medium telephoto lens, making it possible to capture around 1.3 gigapixel 360 photos thanks to a firmware update.

DJI has released firmware updates for Mavic 3 Pro, Mavic 3 Classic and Mavic 3.  All three will benefit from a feature called Vision Assist which enables the user to look at surroundings in any cardinal direction (north, south, east, west) using the Mavic 3’s omnidirectional obstacle avoidance cameras:

In addition, the Mavic 3 Pro now has several new features for its telephoto cameras, such as being able to take quickshots with the medium telephoto lens.  For photographers, the most important addition is the ability to take 360 photos with the medium telephoto lens (70mm equivalent).  If you use a third party stitcher such as PTGui, the stitched resolution should be around 1.3 to 1.5 gigapixels.  (UPDATE: Xander Berkenhagen confirmed that the resolution is 1.3 gigapixels when stitched with a 3rd party stitcher).

If you’re wondering, this ability to take 360 photos with the telephoto lens is not available for the Mavic 3 (or Mavic 3 Classic, which doesn’t have a telephoto lens).  That’s because the Mavic 3 has only one telephoto lens with a focal length of 162mm, which would require about 785 shots to shoot a single 360 photo!

Mavic 3 Pro is available for $2199 (B&H Photo). I don’t have a Mavic 3 Pro but here’s my review of the Mavic 3 for aerial 360 photos.
