DJI Air 3 vs DJI Air 2s

DJI Air 3 vs DJI Air 2s. DJI launched its new Air series drone several years ago, the DJI Air 3, adding to this new drone new technologies and some functions that make it at the top of the market. This new DJI Air 3 has several improvements compared to its predecessor, the DJI Air 2s. Omnidirectional sensors, Ocusync 4, waypoints, great improvement in battery life and the dual camera, among other things. After the video I released of the DJI Air 3 in Madeira, many people asked me several questions… is the Air 3 worth buying? Is it worth changing my DJI Air 2s for the DJI Air 3? In this post I am going to show you a video comparing the two drones side by side, to see if you can guess which shot belongs to which drone.

DJI Air 3 vs DJI Air 2s. Side by side comparative.

As I mentioned before, in this video you are going to see shots of the two drones, side by side and at the same time. The idea is that you can guess which drone the shots belong to and then be able to see the shots from both drones at the same time:

The two drones are two real beasts. After testing them a lot, in various scenarios and with all color profiles, my conclusion is the following.

DJI Air 3 has two very important improvements compared to the Air 2s; The battery life and the dual camera. The dual camera gives you endless creative possibilities and gives you the ability to record places from afar that you can’t get too close to. The night mode is also a notable improvement but it is not something I would change drones for. As for the sensor, it is true that it is smaller than the Air 2s but in low lights or high lights the difference is not so noticeable, the DJI Air 3 is slightly superior.

If you don’t have either drone, you should DEFINITELY go for the DJI Air 3. If you have the DJI Air 2s and you’re curious about the dual camera or battery life is a big handicap, then yes, It’s worth switching to the Air 3. If you don’t care about the dual camera and the battery is not a problem, I wouldn’t switch.
