Quadcopters.co.uk will be taking pre-orders for the new Inspire camera, the Zenmuse X5

Whilst the current Zenmuse X3 Inspire camera provides excellent video and stills, it’s still some way from offering the quality of a DSLR, especially in poor lighting on an evening or on a cloudy English day (of which we get far too many).  The Zenmuse X5 & X5R, will provide excellent low light performance, this is due to the larger size of the Micro Four Thirds sensor (eight times larger than the sensor in the Zenmuse X3) and the fast speed of the available primes lenses.

The Inspire 1 is due to be available as the Inspire 1 Pro, packaged with the X5 instead of the X3.

Sensor

The Zenmuse X5 has been designed to pair with the excellent MFT prime lenses.

 

  • Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm f2.0 [FOV 84°]
    Full Frame 24mm equivalent.
  • DJI MFT 14mm f1.7 15mm [FOV 72°]
    Full Frame 30mm equivalent.
  • Panasonic Lumix 15mm G Leica DG Summilux f1.7 ASPH [FOV 72°]
    Full Frame 30mm equivalent.

 

The move to Micro Four Thirds brings a number of benefits, for one productions that include ground and aerial videos will be easier to integrate the look of, imagine filming shots with the Panasonic GH4, on a Ronin-M, then cutting to an Inspire with the Zenmuse X5, handling that in post will mean less headaches, a faster workflow and better results for your clients.

A whole new level of creativity can be unleashed, using the DJI follow-focus or GO app, it’ll now be possible to utilise depth of field for focus pulls.

We are taking pre-orders  now for the X5 to ship them the moment they land on the UK shores.

We are also taking pre-orders for the Inspire 1 Pro.

The dynamic range of both Zenmuse X5 cameras is an impressive 12.8 stops of dynamic range giving you unprecedented flexibility for colouring grading in post production.
