DJI Mini 3 Pro vs DJI air 2s
So now that we’ve gone over all the specs for these beauties, how do they compare to the Air 2s? More specifically, how does the Mini 3 Pro compare, as it’s the better version of the two.
Let’s break it down shall we…
DJI Mini 3 Pro vs DJI Air 2s Camera
One of the key differences between the DJI Air 2S and the Mini 3 Pro is the size of their sensors. The Air 2S boasts a larger 1-inch image sensor, while the Mini 3 Pro has a smaller 0.8-inch sensor.
One of the biggest differences is also their shooting capabilities. The Air 2S can capture footage in both 4K and 5.4K, while the Mini 3 Pro is limited to just 4K. However, despite this difference, the Mini 3 Pro still has a lot in common with the Air 2S.
Initially, the Mini 3 Pro's 8-bit color grade was a bit of a drawback compared to the Air 2S, but a recent update has brought it up to speed. Now, the Mini 3 Pro can shoot in 10-bit just like the Air 2S! Both drones have a range of cool flight modes, like Quickshots, MasterShots, Spotlight, Point Of Interest, Hyperlapse, and ActiveTrack, and they can both shoot 120fps at 1080p.
Another plus for the Mini 3 Pro is its wider aperture and ISO range compared to the Air 2S. And, thanks to its vertical gimbal position, the Mini 3 Pro lets you shoot in Portrait mode, which is pretty cool.
To me, the winner here is pretty clear: the Air 2s has the Mini 3 Pro beat.
DJI Mini 3 Pro vs DJI air 2s Battery & Flight Time
When it comes to flight time, both the DJI Mini 3 Pro and the Air 2S look pretty similar on paper, with 38 minutes and 31 minutes respectively. But, let's be real, in the real world, your flight time can vary based on the battery conditions, the environment, and how you fly. You can expect anywhere from 25 to 31 minutes of flight time.
However, there's a little trick for the Mini 3 Pro - you can get a beefier battery that can last for over 51 minutes! Just keep in mind that this battery isn't allowed in some regions like the US or UK.
And, it makes sense that the Air 2S has a shorter flight time considering it's a bit heavier. That extra weight probably means it has a more powerful battery, which is necessary to achieve that 31 minute flight time.
DJI Mini 3 Pro vs DJI Air 2s Price
Okay, so let's talk price. The DJI Mini 3 Pro is a bit pricier than previous Mini drones, but when you consider all the new features they packed in while keeping the weight under 250 grams, I'd say it's totally worth it.
The Mini 3 Pro starts at $669 without the controller, $759 with the standard controller, and $909 with the controller that has a built-in screen.
On the other hand, the Air 2S costs start at $999 for the drone and one battery, which is probably not an entry-level price point!
