Meet the Zenmuse X5, the world’s first mirrorless, 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.
With 12.8 stops of dynamic range, shadows and highlights in everything you capture is brought out in perfect clarity.
Shooting with the Zenmuse X5’s M4/3 sensor results in images that are crisper and more detailed than any previous aerial camera.
When compared with the X3 camera with the original Inspire 1, the difference is clear in images that truly come to life.
Built inside the Zenmuse X5 is 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.
Say goodbye to frustratingly long setups. The Zenmuse X5 is perfectly compatible with the Inspire 1, DJI’s professional, ready to fly aerial platform. Instantly ready and bringing a level of control and convenience that only a fully integrated system can provide, you have a combination of imaging prowess and ease-of-use that is unprecedented in any aerial imaging system.
With the Zenmuse X5, you have an unprecedented level of control right at your fingertips. In the intuitive auto-focus mode, simply tap on the screen of your mobile device to tell the camera to focus on a specific area. You can also easily manually change settings such as focus, shutter, and aperture through the user-friendly DJI GO app. With the Zenmuse X5, you are always ready to take 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, 2.7K (2704×1520) at up to 30 fps, and Full 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 and Focus Peaking making it a camera that’s truly fit for any job.
With a M4/3 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 is equipped with a highly reliable 3-axis gimbal that automatically stabilizes your camera in flight. The gimbal constantly communicates with the aircraft, and quickly compensates for every minor movement. With a precision accuracy of 0.02°, sub-pixel stabilization is occuring and as a result, the Zenmuse X5 produces 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 gives 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 is well positioned to benefit from new products and innovations from major lens manufacturers.
Currently, a range of lenses are compatible with the Zenmuse X5. With different specifications but the same top-notch quality, these three lenses provide you with the flexibility on set.
Control the Zenmuse X5 remotely with the same DJI GO app that is used with the Inspire 1. With a live HD view powered by
DJI Lightbridge, you see exactly what the camera is capturing and can adjust every setting on the fly.
The Zenmuse X5 is precisely manufactured with high-grade magnesium alloys and aluminium alloys, enabling it to withstand heavy field use. Compact and lightweight to allow easy transportation and long flight times, the Zenmuse X5 is built to last.
As you fly, focus can be remotely adjusted using the GO app or the DJI Focus system. Simply plug this new follow focus controller into the Inspire 1 remote to have an accurate, familiar physical focus wheel that controls the way your shots look.
