Why is TB50 Battery not compatible with DJI Inspire 3?
Thanks for pointing that out! We're sorry for the inconvenience. The two batteries are not interchangeable as the redesigned TB51 battery coming with new internal circuits and structure is smaller, lighter, and more streamlined compared to TB50 battery, allowing Inspire 3 to provide enhanced aerial cinematography experience.
Does the Inspire 3 TB51 battery support hot swapping? How to operate it?
The aircraft does not need to power off when replacing the TB51 battery. Users can replace one of the batteries first, as it takes some times for the aircraft to read the battery information. Wait for about three seconds before replacing another battery.

Users can correct the lens distortion of ProRes RAW and Cinema DNG videos shot on Inspire 3 in Final Cut Pro, Davinci Resolve, and Adobe Premiere Pro. For more details, please refer to DJI Inspire 3 - Lens Distortion Correction Guide For ProRes RAW and CinemaDNG Videos v1.0.
Related Explanation about Jello Effect for Inspire 3 Used with Zenmuse X9-8K Air Gimbal Camera
We are sorry for the trouble caused. As the X9-8K Air gimbal camera uses rolling shutter, the product may suffer from "jello effect” when capturing under certain shooting scenes, such as if the device is moving horizontally at high speed. In this case, it is recommended to set the shutter speed to [1/frame rate] if the current shooting frame rate is greater than or equal to 48 fps. Otherwise, it is recommended to shoot at a safe shutter speed of 1/50 s or a safe shutter angle of 180° to eliminate the motion blur and alleviate the impacts of the jello effect on the view quality.

Please note that jello effect may be affected by factors such as frame rate, frame size, and resolution. You can try capturing at 2K in full frame or Super 35mm, which can effectively reduce the effect. Thank you for your understanding.

Jello effect is caused due to the characteristics of the camera itself. These cameras contain CMOS, which typically employ rolling shutters in order to capture images. The Rolling Shutter CMOS sensor adopts the progressive scanning exposure mode. At the beginning of exposure, the sensor scans line by line to expose until all pixels are exposed. All the movements were completed in a very short time. When the motion of a subject is moving too fast or the camera is vibrating, jello effect occurs because of the relatively slow scan speed of the sensor, that is, part of the frame may blur, or straight lines may appear curved and bent.
What should I do if the DJI Inspire 3 gimbal vibrates, or the videos recorded have a ripple effect?
1. Check the wind speed: If the wind speed is too high, the jello effect may occur. It is recommended to replace the flight environment or fly the drone at another time.
2. Check the control stick operation: If the control stick is strongly pushed, the aircraft flies at high speed, and the jelly effect occurs. In this case, please operate the control sticks gently.
3. Check whether the vibration absorption board or rubber damper is damaged. If yes, replace it. It is recommended to purchase the rubber damper again
4. Check the firmware: Update the firmware to the latest version. 5. Perform the gimbal calibration, reset the gimbal parameters, and calibrate the IMU.
6. Check whether the aircraft had crashed. If the issue persists, send the products back for repair through “Online Repair Request” (
What is the sampling method for DJI Inspire 3?
Sampling method includes point sampling (8K/5.5K) and super sampling (4K).
