DJI have announced two replacement cameras for their Inspire 1 UAV. The ZenMuse X5 and X5R replace the stock Zenmuse X3 camera with a Micro Four Thirds 4K camera, fully controllable from the ground via DJI’s GO app. The system uses standard interchangeable MFT lenses and can take 16MP stills or video. Updateable colour profiles will also offer the ability to shoot flat images to maximise the benefit of a claimed 13 stops of dynamic range. A complete Inspire 1 and X5 system will cost $4,499US; a camera-only upgrade for existing owners is also planned for $2,199US. The X5R, a Cinema DNG RAW capable version of the camera, will be available as a complete package for $7,999. Thanks to Matt at Newsshooter.com.
