DJI have added the X5R - a new 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds camera and three axis gimbal with the ability to record 4K video in DNG RAW. The uncompressed, Ultra HD pictures are saved on a 512GB solid state drive at a maximum bit rate of 2.4 Gbps. At the same time Proxy QuickTime movie files (H.264) are recorded to a micro SD card. This camera is aimed at the professional market with the uncompressed video data allowing movie makers to have a field day in post-production. The larger sensor offers higher dynamic range and better low light performance.
The video displays at 720p via the app. Everything from manual camera controls to flight mapping and even auto take-off and landing are just a tap away, with more functions and updates being developed all the time. When filming or taking stills, the camera and gimbal can be rotated to capture the action while the Inspire heads in another direction or hovers. Add a second controller and one person can fly while the other operates the camera.
PThe X5R offers a choice of 3 lenses which give a narrower field of view than the X3 camera on the original Inspire. They are the Panasonic Lumix 15mm, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12mm and DJI MFT 15mm. The Panasonic and the DJI lenses offer a tighter field of view of 72 degrees compared to the Olympus's 84 degrees because they have a 35mm equivalent of 30mm as opposed to the Olympus's 24mm. The Olympus is the lens specified for the Panasonic GH4 when used with a Zenmuse gimbal on the DJI S900 or S1000+. Other lenses will be available in the future and, although it doesn’t feature on the DJI website, the company has said the Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 lens is also compatible
DJI Focus is an optional, follow focus remote control that will work with the X5R camera. It can communicate directly with the camera at up to 100 metres but, when connected to the Inspire’s controller, you can control focus up to the limit of the transmitter’s range. Where regulations allow that can be 1.2 miles or 2 km but in the UK you will have to keep your Inspire within sight at all times and no further than 500 metres away. The DJI Focus can also be used on DJI’s Ronin and Ronin-M handheld stabilised gimbals. If you need first person view for the pilot while your Inspire camera is concentrating on the action, Heliguy can offer an FPV upgrade to make your filming safer. The upgrade allows the pilot to have a forward facing camera and a separate screen. The tiny First Person View (FPV) camera neatly fits into the nose of the aircraft and uses a self-contained and independently powered transmitter to send pictures back to the pilot.
The DJI Inspire 1 RAW is easy to fly and can hold its position both indoors and out thanks to DJI’s revolutionary vision positioning sensors and a highly accurate Global Positioning System. Even if you’ve never flown before, taking off and landing your DJI Inspire 1 is easy and safe. It takes just one tap on the screen to make your Inspire 1 take-off and transform, ready to start filming. Then tap again to have it transform and land. When GPS is available, the Home Point (the location you are standing) automatically refreshes, so your Inspire 1 always knows where you are even if you move around. When you tell it to come back, or in case of an emergency, it knows exactly where to go and land safely.
The Inspire 1 RAW is powered by a fully integrated, intelligent battery. When in flight, the remaining battery power is shown live, letting you know how long you can continue to fly. Advanced algorithms calculate the distance of your aircraft and estimated time to return home, letting you know when it’s time to fly back. The battery tracks the voltage of each cell, the total lifetime charges and discharges, and the overall health and battery status. All this helps you to fly your Inspire 1 with peace of mind.
The Inspire 1 RAW takes breathtaking professional footage.
A dual controller set-up makes getting that perfect shot simple.
Easy to fly yet full of features, DJI's Inspire 1 RAW operates your way.
Never lose track of your battery life with levels shown live.
All it takes is a single screen tap to take-off, land or transform to film.

Excellent service and communication
i am a repeat customer and service received was excellent as it has always been
In stock, great price and free delivery - what’s not to like?
Smooth deal with Heliguy although my bank did their best to wreck my day by making a typo on their end and took five ( 5 ) hours and several phone calls by me to sort it, no one at my bank apologised, so much for ulster . . . .
Very prompt delivery, no hassles, genuine products
Very professional and helpful couldn’t fault the help and support given. Thank you

Excellent service and very helpful on the phone
Quick informative reply to my query.
From: Bruce Pullman
Fabulous reassuring support from Kevin - I had worried and had received no clear answer from DJI forums (DJI people on it seem wholly useless - Chinese bots?!?) nor Mavic Air Help on Mavic Pilots. Are there any better forums?
From: Paul Kassner
Very fast response time.
Although the product I was looking for is now longer available, Steve replied quickly and explored and possibilities to help. Very helpful and great to deal with, which you don't always get from internet dealings, so thank you, I appreciate the effort!
Great advice, wish I could spend all day there and absorb everything. Organ building is great but.... maybe its time to move on! M.
