What can the Inspire 1 can now offer you more with its new and improved camera? The drones has not changed but its camera has. Meet the DJI Zenmuse X5 Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal with 15mm f/1.7 Lens, the world's first mirror less, compact Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography and cinematography. Designed to work with the DJI Inspire 1 ready-to-fly platform, the ZENMUSE X5 packs a powerful sensor that's capable of recording 4K videos at up to 30 fps and capturing still images at 16MP. Equipped with the standard MFT interchangeable lens mount and allowing full wireless remote control over focus, aperture, and more, the ZENMUSE X5 lets you shoot the way you want. Welcome to the future of aerial imaging.

Built inside the ZENMUSE X5 Series are a powerful Micro Four Thirds sensor that's absolutely revolutionary for an aerial camera. With a sensor eight times the size of that in the previous X3 camera included with the Inspire 1, this new MFT sensor enables high quality, high sensitivity image recording at an ISO range of 100-25600. With a sophisticated balance of high-resolving power, accurate gradation, and low noise, you are realizing your artistic and creative vision as never before.

To create the first fully integrated, professional aerial imaging system, the ZENMUSE X5 Series were engineered and designed from the very beginning to be perfectly compatible with the Inspire 1, DJI's most advanced quadcopter. With 360 degree camera movement and dual controller support, the Inspire 1 is the favorite ready-to-fly aerial platform for enthusiasts and professionals worldwide. Now, with a simple installation procedure, you can upgrade the camera on your Inspire 1 to the ZENMUSE X5 Series, vastly increasing its imaging capabilities while retaining its ease of use and reliability.

With the ZENMUSE X5 Series, you have an unprecedented level of control right at your fingertips. In the intuitive auto- focus mode, you can tell the camera to focus on a specific area by simply tapping on the screen of your mobile device, as easy as using the camera on a smartphone. Manual/Auto focus, shutter, white balance and aperture control are also available, giving you unlimited freedom to create any kind of shot you want. With the ZENMUSE X5 Series, you are in complete control.

Despite its compact size, the ZENMUSE X5 is a powerful video camera that's capable of recording 4K (3840 x 2160) at up to 30 fps, and 1080P HD (1920 x 1080) at up to 60 fps in MP4/MOV format. The ZENMUSE X5 enables you to record professional-level footage with stunning clarity and detail. A higher speed signal readout suppresses the rolling shutter effect when recording, resulting in beautiful footage even when flying at high speeds. The ZENMUSE X5 also comes equipped with convenient features such as Zebra Pattern, making it a camera that's truly fit for any job.

With a MFT sensor that's capable of capturing photos at 16MP, the ZENMUSE X5 produces print-ready images that look as good in a frame as they do on your screen. The extra pixels represent a 25% increase over the original Inspire 1 camera. With the shutter speed increased to as quick as 1/8000 of a second, and the power of the new imaging processor enabling burst capture of up to 7 full size photos per second, the ZENMUSE X5 helps you relish every memorable moment.

Thanks to DJI's unparalleled expertise in stabilization systems, the ZENMUSE X5 Series are equipped with a reliable 3-axis gimbal that automatically stabilize your camera in flight. The gimbal constantly communicates with the aircraft, and quickly compensates for every minor movement. As a result, the ZENMUSE X5 Series produce silky smooth footage and sharp photos even with long exposure no matter how you fly.

As the world's first Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography and videography, the ZENMUSE X5 Series give you the freedom to choose your lens. By utilizing the standard MFT mount, one of the most popular lens systems in the camera industry, the ZENMUSE X5 Series are well positioned to benefit from new products and innovations from major lens manufacturers.
