Well, I finally got to the fly the DJI X5 Professional M43 camera!
We are having storm after storm in the UK with super high winds which has grounded a lot of UAV pilots. However, there was a very short break yesterday when the winds dropped to a 1000mph so I braved the possibility of rain and headed over to the beach.
I just wanted to literally hover the Inspire 1 with X5 Pro at no more than a few meters to get a couple of clips and still photos to make sure I hadn’t spent close to £2k on a duff piece of kit (X5 Professional and Olympus Zuiko 12mm F2 lens).
I was a little concerned after seeing less than sharp, high quality footage hitting YouTube recently.
I only got in an 11 minute flight from the TB48 5700mAh battery although I did take off at 95% and land at 31%. I think with a full charge and landing at 30%, I could get 12-13 minutes in that high wind and perhaps 14-15 minutes in fairer weather conditions.
Anyway, see the video below for some 4K clips and a couple of stills (both straight from camera and partly edited) and see what I think of this new set up for the DJI Inspire 1.
Oh, and please share with anyone you know that is thinking of buying the DJI Inspire 1 and/or X5 Professional camera (and Olympus Zuiko 12mm F2 lens).
Edit: Well, I think the calibration problem as seen at the start of the above video is solved…and so simply.
