The DJI Mini 3 Pro is a drone designed for everyday users and professional photographers and videographers. The drone has a 3-axis gimbal and can shoot 4K video at up to 60fps. It also has a 20-megapixel camera that can take still photos. The drone is smaller than the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and is easier to transport. It also has a longer flight time and a more substantial battery.

The main difference between the DJI Mini 3 Pro and the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is that the former does not have obstacle avoidance sensors. This makes it more suitable for experienced pilots flying in open areas. On the other hand, the DJI Mini 3 Pro is an excellent drone for everyday users, professional photographers, and videographers.
