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 occurring and as a result, the Zenmuse X5 produces silky smooth footage and sharp photos even with long exposure no matter how you fly.
INTERCHANGEABLE LENS MOUNT

lenses provide you with flexibility on set.
