Ten DJI Mini 3 Pro hacks are included in this blog post to help users get the most out of their drone experience. The article discusses a number of the drone’s modes, settings, and features that users might not be aware of. For example, it describes how to turn off sideways flight. It is helpful for novices to prevent flying the drone in a horizontal manner and possibly running into objects. Additional tricks include using Auto Takeoff for more seamless takeoffs, Subject Scanning to track moving objects, and Find My Drone to find a drone that is lost. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, this blog offers useful advice on how to make the most out of the DJI Mini 3 Pro and capture amazing aerial photos and videos.
Dolly zoom effect
A cinematic technique known as the “dolly zoom effect” entails moving the camera closer or farther away from the subject while simultaneously zooming in or out. You can get this effect with the DJI Mini 3 Pro by using the tracking and spotlight modes. The camera will automatically zoom in when you draw a box around the subject, activate spotlight mode, and launch the drone away from you. With less work, it can help you create a dolly zoom effect that is smoother.
Propeller guards are not included with the DJI Mini 3 Pro, but if you arrange the propellers in a certain manner, you might not need one. The top propellers should be positioned over the drone’s body and pressed together until a slight resistance is felt. You need to insert the bottom propellers into the two small standoffs. When you place the drone into your camera bag, this will securely hold the propellers in place and keep them from snagging or catching on anything.
One feature that lets you meter the exposure of a particular region of the picture is called spot metering. Spot metering mode in the DJI Fly app can be accessed by tapping on your subject or point of interest until a square yellow box appears on top of it. After that, the drone will use that spot to meter the exposure and make sure your subject is always perfectly exposed.
Hold to gamble
The DJI Fly app or the controller can be used to control the gimbal on the DJI Mini 3 Pro. The “hold to gamble” feature in the app allows you to manipulate the gimbal by pressing and holding the screen until a tiny circle surrounds your finger. The next step involves rotating and moving the gimbal by moving your finger up or down. This approach might feel more intuitive to some than using the controller’s scroll wheel.
The data that a mini drone gathers while in flight is referred to as drone telemetry. You can use the DJI Fly app’s video subtitle feature to access this data with the DJI Mini 3 Pro. With this feature, you can add information to your video file such as the camera settings, drone coordinates, and speed without affecting the original video file. This can help troubleshoot issues that arose during a flight or replicate particular camera settings.
