The 4K revolution is really upon us. From action cameras to DSLRs, the quest to deliver Ultra High Definition capability drives companies to continually upgrade their products. That being said, DJI is no exception. Finally, they have brought 4K UHD in the sky with the Phantom 3 4K WI-FI Aerial Camera. It has roughly the same features as the other Phantom 3 editions but in a more affordable price.

Known for quality quadcopters and aerial media capture devices, DJI launched a third version of their successful Phantom 3 product line following the Phantom 3 Basic and the Phantom 3 Professional and Advanced. Aside from its gimbal-stabilized, 12.4-megapixel Sony Exmor CMOS 4K camera with f/2.8 aperture, it also comes with remote control buttons for recording video, video playback, and shutter for capturing still images.

The Phantom 3 4K records UHD videos at 4,096 x 2,160 of up to 30 frames per second. It can also capture Full HD at 1,920 x 1,080 and High Definition at 1,280 x 720. For photos, it can capture a maximum image size of up to 4,000 x 3,000 pixels. To maximize its functions, this DJI aerial camera has five still photography modes. Videos are recorded in either MOV or MPEG-4 format while images at saved as either JPEG or DNG.
