DJI Air 3 vs DJI Air 2

Drones have become an invaluable tool for Photographers, Videographers and Hobbyists. Drones offer a completely different viewpoint of the world that would be otherwise hard to capture without drones. DJI, the worlds leading drone manufacturer constantly raises the standard with every drone release. In this blog, we will be comparing the DJI Air 2 to the new DJI Air 3.


The DJI Air 2 is known for its sleek and lightweight design, weighing in at just under 600 grams. This compact size makes it extremely portable, allowing users to effortlessly carry it in a backpack or even a large pocket. The Air 3 follows the same ethos weighing in at just over 700 grams with a sleek, slim design.


Both drones deliver exceptional stills and video but the DJI Air 3 takes it one step further. The DJI Air 2 features a 1/2-inch CMOS sensor which is capable of 4K/60fps Video and 48mp Photographs. Additionally, the Air 2 has a 4x digital zoom function.

The Air 3 has two sensors, one 1/1.3 inch Medium Tele and the other a 1/1.3 inch Wide Angle. These two sensors allow the Air 3 to capture stunning wide-angle pictures and lossless 3x zoom pictures with the Tele camera. These cameras allow you to use the Air 3 in far more situations than the DJI Air 2.
