The latest sub-250g DJI drone, the Mini 3 Pro, is only on the market since a few days, and the Chinese company has already released a firmware update. This update adds – among other features and improvements – 10-bit color to the D-Cinelike picture profile within the drone. Having the ability to shoot 10-bit color allows videographers to get more detail in their imagery, and post-process clips that can better match up with the footage captured on similar cameras. Color grading is much easier as banding, which is more common with 8-bit recording, is a less likely side effect in post-processing.
This latest color profile upgrade makes the Mini 3 Pro more of a pro drone than it was before. Here are the notes from DJI’s official forum:
