We’ve known of the impending arrival of the Mini 3 ever since the launch of the featherweight Mini 3 Pro in May, but it still looks like it’s been worth the wait. Though missing a few premium Pro features, the 4K camera drone flies with a much cheaper price tag.

The Mini 3 looks pretty much the same as the Pro model, and like that pricier flyer it tips the scales at just 248 g (8.75 oz), which means it can be flown without registration in “several parts of the world” – including the US.

The most notable sacrifice that DJI has made with the follow-up to the Mini 2 is opting for a 12-MP 1/1.3-type CMOS image sensor fronted by a 24-mm (equiv) F1.7 lens, which has much lower resolution than the sensor in the Mini 3 Pro model. The company does say that photos from 48 MP to 12 MP are possible though, thanks to the use of 4-in-1 pixel technology, which also helps improve low-light performance.
