DJI CP.PT.000308 Overview

  • 1Description

Built from the ground up for aerial filmmaking and photography, the Phantom 3 4K from DJI features an integrated 12MP camera attached to a 3-axis gimbal. Apart from 12MP JPEG or RAW photos, the camera can record cinema-spec DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 24 fps and UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) at 30 fps. With the included flight battery, the quadcopter can fly for up to 25 minutes, depending on conditions.

A 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi link with range extender allows you to use the venerable DJI Go app for live HD monitoring and camera control. Additionally, you can access intelligent flight control features tailored to needs of the filmmaker, including Follow Me, Course Lock, Home Lock, and waypoint navigation. The Wi-Fi extender as well as the included handheld controller (transmitter) feature a line-of-sight range of up to 3937'.

Integrated 4K Camera

Up to 4K Video and 12MP Stills
The included camera system features video recording at up to 4K30 (4096 x 2160) in H.264 and also takes JPEG and DNG RAW photos at 12MP. The camera mounts via a 3-axis gimbal that provides stabilization as well as a -90 to +30° controllable pitch (tilt) range. Media is recorded internally to a microSD card up to 64GB in size
Video Resolutions and Frame Rates
DCI 4K (4096 x 2160): 24, 25 fps
UHD 4K (3840 x 2160):24, 25, 30 fps
1080p (1920 x 1080): 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, 60 fps
720p (1280 x 720): 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, 60 fps
94° Wide Angle Lens
The camera features a 94° angle-of-view lens, which is a narrower angle than a fisheye for less distortion while still being wide enough to enable capturing establishing shots. The lens features an f/2.8 aperture and is comprised of 9 elements, including an aspherical element

Wi-Fi Downlink

App-Based Monitoring and Control
A 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi extender built into the controller extends the Wi-Fi range up to 3900' line-of-sight. Via the link, you can use a mobile device to view a live, 720p HD image from the camera, control video and photo recording, and access settings not available through the controller (transmitter). A mount is included to attach a smartphone or table to the controller
DJI Go App
Use the DJI Go app for iOS and Android to remotely operate the Phantom 3 4K camera and view a live, HD video feed

Flight Control Modes

Follow Me
Program your Phantom 3 4K to act as your own personal, flying film crew
Course Lock
By activating Course Lock, the controls will be set to be relative to your aircraft's current path. This mode allows you to fly in a set direction while tracking alongside moving objects or across scenes
With this autopilot mode, apply pushpins to a map to create "waypoints" that define the Phantom 3 4K's course Altitude, speed, and heading can all change at each waypoint
Home Lock
With this orientation mode, fix your controls to be relative to the Home Point. Easily pull back on the control stick to bring the aircraft back home, or push forward to fly farther away, no matter which way the "nose" is pointing
Point of Interest (POI)
Select a location or object to focus on, and the Phantom 3 4K will continuously circle it, no matter how you fly. This is similar to "orbit mode" found in other flight control systems

Additional Features

Intelligent Flight Battery
The flight battery slots into the "tail" of the Phantom 3 and features and on/off switch plus four LED charge indicators that are visible while flying – so you can keep track of remaining flight time without needing to consult the app. For recharging, balance and power regulation is handled internally within the battery itself. You simply plug it into a wall outlet with the supplied power cord and you are good to go

    Phantom 3 4K is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 113.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Foray Into Drone Piloting Fantastic drone at a justified price. I was able to fly my newly purchased drone within an hour of unboxing. I was taken aback at how responsive the controls were, as well as the ease with which I understood how to maneuver the drone midair. I don't have enough superlatives to describe how amazing the footage was when exported out, or the stability and smoothness of the pans performed. My only qualms... Range is limiting, I should have sprung for the lightbridge connection. Connection has been lost several times, but failsafe return to home feature hasn't failed me yet. Having had such a positive experience with this drone, I will definite,y be looking to upgrade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I would have gotten one sooner! Everyone that sees footage from this on board camera says the same thing; It looks like I'm looking out of a window! The footage is that good! The FAA rules and regulations are a buzzkill, but what can you do? This UAV is easy to fly, the built-in features, Return to home, point of interest, follow me and so on are great and all work just as described. The documentation leaves a LOT to be desired, but you can learn all you want and more on youtube. Mine was giving me an IMU calibration error, it turned out to be a simple fix and I was up and flying in short order. Now I want to save up to get a Phantom 4!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product Drone couldn't be easier to fly. Some minor WiFi interference errors when using it in town ...where you'd expect WiFi interference. Away from town the drone had flawless communication. The camera does have considerable noise at ISO's above 800. It also has a fixed 20mm focal length and a fixed f/2.8 aperture. My daytime photos have all been really good, nice and razor sharp. Due to the noise and the fixed aperture it's going to take some experimentation to get the shutter speed limitations figured out for the night shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phantom 3 4K i have owned a DJI Phantom 1 quadcopter for a few years now and really enjoyed flying it and being able to take videos with my GoPro camera attached to the gimbal i added to it however after seeing this Phantom 3 close up and then reading about all the capabilities of it i knew i needed to upgrade, so i did. this Phantom 3 4K is truly amazing. the camera is great and the videos and still pictures it produces look fantastic. i really like being able to stop the video in flight and then take still pictures and then continue to take more videos while In Flight. this Phantom 3 really is a great piece of equipment and i am very glad i did upgrade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE drone to get! I love this drone! I first bought a $ model to learn form but that one was hard to control and had a terrible camera. I thought it made sense to learn with something less expensive but it turns out the bigger models are easier to control and more intelligent to buy as a first drone. This has all the right features, is easy to control and gives you excellent video and photo quality. I am thrilled with this purchase worth every penny! If you are on the fence about getting a drone this one is right for you and will give you the fun right off the bat. My first real task was to record a unique tree house before the leaves take foot for spring and this was easy thanks to the intuitive controls, live video feed and 4K video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORTH THE MONEY! 4K IS THE FUTURE I am a starting out filmmaker and was looking for a affordable drone to buy. I trust DJI and was looking at them. I wanted 4k so this one fit my budget. I would go with this one over the Standard and Advanced because you get 4k quality. 4k is the future and will soon be the standard definition to watch. The VPS is great for indoor flight but buy the prop guards so you don't kill your drone or walls. It has the upgraded remote which is AWESOME! This drone is the Professional just without lightbridge. If you want lightbridge go for the Pro but the 4k has a .75 mile range and that is plenty. You can also put your Ipad mini on it for a bigger screen which is really nice. It says it gives you a 480p FPV signal but really is 720p. BH Photo is the best place to buy with really good customer service. I have never bought any other camera equipment from another place and would never buy from another place. I went thru 3 drones before this one and they never gave me a hard time. If you are between the Advanced or the 4k go with the 4k it will future proof your film. I will definitely be buying BH again :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome beginners/Intermediate drone I order Phantom 3 4K and it was delivered next day. Setup is very easy if you follow the instructions provided in the box. Advice - If you don't have any experience in flying a drone, pick an open space with no trees, buildings or any tall objects around, until you fill you have a full control. Phantom 3 4K camera can make great 4K videos, even in a low light. Highly recommended for beginners with an intermediate experience in a photography. It will be a great edition to your gear collection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from un drone facil de manejar Apenas dos semanas que recibi el drone y pude hacer pruebas de vuelo. La desicion mia por el Phanton 3 4K fue por la necesidad de hacer grabaciones en super alta defenicion - 4K - para incorporar en el trabajo documental que realizo, con esto los programas se hacen mas interesantes con descripcion es graficas completas. El Phanton 3K me permite hacer vuelos no mas de 1 milla, suficiente para mi proposito - Tomas aereas con deslizamientos ligeros y en contorno a los obtetivos. Si estas buscando un drone a bajo precio, con super calidad de video y que se desplace a no mas de lo que la vista permite ... ESTE ES TU DRONE lo recomiendo.

    Do we have to register before we take a drone flight ?
    Asked by: Nam N.
    There is no registration before each flight. However your drone has t be registered with the FAA. Sometimes you have to give a UAV notification to an airport before you fly. Check with the FAA on their website and your local laws and regulations before flying. Also not that it makes a difference if you fly for recreational use or commercial use.

    Hi, I have some issues with the remote control. Mine only comes with a micro USB port. How do you update the firmware for the remote with that the micro USB port? Please kindly help!!!
    Asked by: Stevie
    I'm a little confused by your question; however, let me try to answer it anyway. You update the firmware via the controller when it is linked to the phantom with wi-fi. Once you have downloaded the update, it will guide you through the process. It takes a while and makes a lot of assorted beeps, but it has always worked fine for me. The only use I know of for the micro USB port is to transfer photo/video files to a computer. (Hope this helped!)

    I have a Mac Mini 2.6gz i5 with 256gb SSD drive, with 8gb of RAM. Will that be able to handle editing the 4k video acquired by the DJI 3 pro?
    Asked by: Matt L.
    You have more than enough CPU power and SSD memory to edit short duration video clips.

    The phantom 3 4K has the Lightbright function on it or not? What is function Lightbright use for?
    Asked by: Nam N.
    Lightbridge is an mode of control frequency and is lest prone to interference and used on the Professional and advanced version and on the phantom 4 and adds a considerable expense to the cost of those birds. The Phantom 3 4K uses a 2 WIFI frequencies to communicate. 2.4 GHZ for the video and 5.8 GHZ for control and has less range out of the box.It is priced on the average considerably less than the Professional or the Phantom 4 which has collision avoidance build in. There many range extending antennas available The Iteite DBS. antenna is a very good one but you have to open up the controller which is a delicate operation. I see that some are using antenna amplifiers now. The sky is the limit but be careful. The FAA now has regulations on Drones. FAR part 107 and the rules say the drone must stay in visual range at all times.B&amp;H photo sells most drones at reasonable prices. I own a P34K and have been very happy so far.

    Is this an acceptable entry level drone? Ive done a few rc cars, but nothing as complex as these. Would I be able to jump right in on this drone, or get a cheap one to practice on first? Just trying to save money.
    Asked by: Alexander B.
    There is a learning curve, but if you read the instructions and study the on-line video tutorials along with a few hours of slow and steady practice - you should be flying like a pro in no time at all.
