DJI call it "The Next Evolution of Aerial Cameras", and we agree!

The Zenmuse X5 is the world's first mirrorless Micro Four Thirds (MFT) camera made specifically for aerial cinematography.

Designed to work with the DJI Inspire 1 or the DJI Osmo handheld device, the revolutionary X5 features a powerful sensor that's 8-times larger than the X3 camera sensor, and is capable of recording 4K video at 30fps and 16MP still images.

With a standard MFT interchangeable lens mount and full wireless remote control of focus, aperture, shutter, white balance and other modes, the X5 gives you absolute control and flexibility. 

DJI's re-badged Panasonic 15mm f/1.7 Prime Lens is packaged with the X5, or select the version without a lens and add your own lenses from Olympus or Panasonic.

The Zenmuse X5 also includes a reliable 3-axis gimbal to automatically stabilise the camera, compensating for every minor movement. The result is smooth footage and sharp photos even with long exposures.

The X5 is precisely manufactured from high-grade magnesium alloys to withstand heavy use. Compact and lightweight, it's built to last.

The key features are:

  • 4K video recording at 4096×2160 (24fps) or 3840×2160 (30/25fps)
  • 16MP photos
  • Increased dynamic range - now a full 12.8 stops
  • Useable with any MFT prime lens
  • Increased pixel clarity
  • Increased ISO range of 100-25600
  • Complete integration with the user-friendly DJI GO app
  • Optional follow-focus also available

Please refer to the DJI Tutorial video for how to mount the X5 to the Inspire 1. 

NOTE 1: If using the X5 on the FIRST version of the Inspire 1, you must replace the original vibration absorbing board designed for the X3 camera with the new Zenmuse X5 Vibration Absorbing Board. The X5 will NOT fit without it.

However, if you own the Inspire 1 V2 or the Inspire 1 Pro, this is NOT required.


NOTE 2: To use the X5 on the DJI Osmo, you will need the Osmo X5 Adapter.
