The 2.7K vertical shot output directly from the 4:3 CMOS delivers clips that are optimized for smartphone viewing and ready to share on social media without any cropping needed in post.
MasterShots: Allows Air 3 to automatically perform diverse camera movements, shooting multiple clips and editing them with music, cuts, and effects for fast and simplified cinematic footage.
More Features, Expanded Creativity
Night Mode: Thanks to an advanced noise reduction algorithm, Air 3 can capture noise-free footage at up to 4K/30fps in low-light environments or at night.
- Hyperlapse: Select from four options, including Free, Circle, Course Lock, and Waypoint to capture timelapse footage at up to 4K horizontally or 2.7K vertically.
- Slow Motion: Select 4K/100fps or 1080p/100fps to directly record a 4x slow-motion video.
SmartPhoto 3.0: In single shot mode, Air 3 uses SmartPhoto 3.0 by default, which can automatically select among HDR, hyperlight, and scene recognition according to the scenario for better imaging results. In HDR DNG format, the camera can record a larger dynamic range with built-in contrast enhancement. The image file can achieve JPG-level quality in post-editing software, reducing the difficulty of post-production.
QuickTransfer: Quickly download photos and videos from the aircraft to your smartphone through a wireless connection, saving time and effort.
Connect to Air 3 wirelessly via the LightCut app on your smartphone for expanded creative options such as One-Tap Edit. There is no need to download all the footage during the process, which helps save storage space on your mobile device.
One-Tap Edit: Intelligently selects clips based on composition and flight path and automatically matches optimal template options and sound effects to generate a quick and effortlessly cinematic video.
Tilt-Shift Effects: Enjoy a tilt-shift effect with just one tap. Apply this feature to footage shot with the 3x medium tele camera for even more dramatic results.
For the first time ever, the Waypoint feature is now available on the Air series. Plan flight routes and shooting actions for Air 3 in advance to achieve difficult camera movements and stunning one-takes. You can also save flight routes to repeat the same movement with precision at a later time or date, opening the door to long-duration timelapse shots that capture transitions like day to night or season to season.
