    DJI X5 reviews

    Zenmuse X5 Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal with 15mm f/1.7 Lens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade! Upgraded from the 3. It's like upgrading from a GoPro to GH4.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's all in the details - or maybe it isn't. The X5 is better than the X3. I want to be clear and upfront about that. If you work at it, your images and video will be far superior to that of the X3 camera. The problem is the work at it part: I purchased the Inspire 1 2.0 on special but wasn't happy with the camera so off I went looking through DJI's options and the X5 was perfect, so I ordered it. Well, it wasn't perfect. Here's what you need to know: 1. The X3 and X5 cameras have an identical bitrate, so compression rates on video and photos are going to be about the same. If you're thinking of getting the X5 because of all the artifacts and noise found in the X3, like I did, you need to be prepared for the possibility that you're not going to get what you want out of the X5. 2. The X3 Camera has an infinite fixed focus lens and no aperture control. This is part of the reason you'd be unhappy with what you get out of the X3. The X5 has conventional focus and aperture control granting you much more creative control, like a dSLR. What is does NOT have is Auto Focus (follow focus). You must constantly refocus your shots by taking your screen. This also means you're not going to be able to get away with using an iPhone. Now that focus is constantly being lost, a large screen is a requirement. 3. True creative control can not be attained by simply setting your X5 and flying around. You must constantly focus AND adjust aperture (and maybe even ISO) if you're going to get the results you want and that would be fine if humans had 4 arms, but we don't. So flying with the X5 or X5R is also (and this is according to DJI support themselves) going to require an additional remote for dedicated camera control and another person to control it. The DJI rep I spoke with acknowledged the lack of clarity in their specifications and provided a little extra unofficial info: The X5 Series cameras, being mirrorless, are capable of true autofocus for both stills and video and the DJI engineering department is on it. :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great image The Zenmuse x5 is a huge step up from the DJI camera that is shipped with the Inspire 1 and Osmo. The ability to have the camera go to a 1.7 f-stop adds great production value and versatility.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Camera Solution I am a professional videographer and comercial dUAS pilot. We capture video and stills primarily for local TV commercials and filmmaking. I have found that the X5 micro 4/3 camera is a good solution, offering a few different focal length lenses and a little more control over exposure and focus. These features make a difference in capturing images that clients are paying for. And since my market really can't support a budget for a larger drone that can fly a real camera, this is a good substitute. I would like to see a little more obvious peak focusing highlights on the screen. For a user not accustomed to operating a camera in full on manual mode, the learning curve to get a good image could tend to frustrate, but that's not really the camera's fault. This is a Micro 4/3 sensor, not a full frame sensor with gobs of dynamic range and professional compression codecs. But is a good for what it is.I would recommend it for someone wanting to take their production value up a notch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No complaints I have been shooting with the X5 for a few months now and using M Zuiko 12mm 25mm 45mm with this camera and its flawless no issues so far. Works like a champ with my Osmo with the 3d printed adapter. I just wish dji would release the real adapter asap...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very slick! I'm impressed so far. I've performed a few test flights in cloudy weather and everything works as expected so far. I'm really impressed how you can attach different lens. The vibration board did come with the riser legs. I used Velcro instead of the stickers so I can remove for storage case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calidad fotografica Estoy muy sorprendido del rango dinmico y los datos que guardan los archivos DNG y MOV que genera la cmara, hay mucho que se puede hacer en una postproduccin detallada en LightRoom o Premier, correccion de color, etc.Me hizo recordar el tipo de detalle que se lograba con pelicula analoga formato 120 de mi Hasselblad y su textura. Estos tipos de DJI la estn armando en serio.
