FAQ
The X3 gimbal and camera system is included with Inspire 1 and has 1/2.3” sensor, enabling it to shoot 4K video and capture 12 Megapixel photos, with an ISO range of 100-3200. The new ZENMUSE X5 Series camera and gimbal systems are the world’s first Micro Four Thirds (M4/3) cameras made specifically for aerial photography and videography. The M4/3 sensor is eight times the size of X3 camera and enables high quality, high sensitivity image recording at an ISO range of 100-25600. The ZENMUSE X5 cameras capture 16 Megapixel images with stunning details and records 4K video. With 12.8 stops of dynamic range, shadows and highlights in everything you capture is brought out in perfect clarity.The ZENMUSE X5 has a M4/3 lens mount which gives your photography flexibility by letting you change lenses. Currently, there are three lenses for the ZENMUSE X5 M4/3 lens mount: the Panasonic Lumix 15mm, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12mm and DJI MFT 15mm.
The biggest difference between them is in video recording capabilities, storage media, and workflow. The ZENMUSE X5R shoots video in lossless format to preserve maximum detail and enable precise editing and post-processing, giving cinematographers full control over the look of their footage. The ZENMUSE X5R has an integrated 512GB SSD drive for storing the lossless video recorded. DJI has designed an editing software specifically for lossless videos, enabling high-end filmmakers to easily edit and process the videos according to their own needs.
The ZENMUSE X5 Series are the first M4/3 cameras designed specifically for aerial photography. The cameras come with an integrated 3-axis gimbal stabilization system, and are designed for use with the Inspire 1. The camera shoots 16 Megapixel photos and 4K video, and can be fully controlled via the new DJI GO app.
No. The ZENMUSE X5 Series cameras must be used together with the Inspire 1 or future supported DJI products.
The ZENMUSE X5 Series is currently compatible with the DJI Inspire 1 and the Matrice 100. More compatible products will be available in future.
The M4/3 sensor is eight times larger than the sensor in the ZENMUSE X3, enabling it to capture incredibly detailed images and videos, including UHD 4K, and gives it improved low-light performance. The M4/3 lens mount allows the use three lenses currently.
The M4/3 lens mount is the interface between the camera body and the attached M4/3 lens. Thanks to the standardized M4/3 mount, you can select three lenses currently. The size of M4/3 is between the size of super 35mm and super 16mm, and super 35 mm lenses can be added to the MFT mount which enables you to shoot high-quality aerial videos.
Currently, there are three prime lenses compatible with the X5: the Panasonic Lumix 15mm, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12mm and DJI MFT 15mm.
To ensure that the 3-axis gimbal’s movements are unrestricted, the lenses are required to fit the gimbal in terms of weight and size. Not all existing lenses fit these requirements, which is why not all MFT lenses are compatible with the ZENMUSE X5 Series.
DJI GO is an easy-to-use mobile application for iOS and Android devices for use together with DJI products. For more information please visit: http://www.dji.com/product/goapp
If you have an Inspire 1 with a ZENMUSE X3 installed, the mounting mechanism should be changed to the new one that's included with the ZENMUSE X5 series. The new mounting mechanism that's provided with ZENMUSE X5 Series are also backwards compatible with the Zenmuse X3 camera.
Because the ZENMUSE X5R's footage captured is lossless and uncompressed, it requires a large amount of memory for storage. We offer a 512GB SSD with the ZENMUSE X5R for this reason.
It depends on the lens used. The 3-axis gimbal is sensitive to the weight of the mounted lens. When you are using an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12mm, the lens hood can be removed without disturbing the gimbal’s operations. However, if you are using a Panasonic Lumix 15mm or DJI MFT 15mm, the lens hood must be attached. For more detail, please go to the download page for official guidance.
