DJI Inspire 1 Pro
The DJI Inspire 1 Pro is the smallest, easiest professional aerial filmmaking platform in the world. It combines DJI’s unparalleled leadership in aerial technology with world-class M4/3 imaging capabilities. The Zenmuse X5 is among the smallest Micro 4/3 cameras ever made and the only M4/3 cameras designed specifically for aerial imaging. It can capture ultra-clear 4K video at up to 30 frames per second and capture photos at 16 megapixels in Adobe DNG RAW making it perfect for professional filmmaking. As M4/3 cameras, you have a choice of lenses and also full wireless control over focus, aperture and more.
Phantom 4 Professional
An uprated camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps.The adoption of titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity of the airframe and reduces weight, making thePhantom 4 Pro similar in weight to the Phantom 4. The FlightAutonomy system adds dual rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a total of 5-direction of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance. The onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the first DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter, eliminating rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced post-production.
Phantom 3 professional
The f/2.8 lens has a 94⁰ field of view, virtually eliminating unwanted distortion that may occur when shooting wide aerial views with other cameras. Securing and stabilizing your camera in place is DJI’s trusted aerial stabilization technology. This 3-axis gimbal keeps your camera perfectly level in any flight conditions, resulting in beautiful, stable footage throughout every flight.With the Phantom 3 Professional, you’re shooting 4K video at up to 30 frames per second and capturing 12 megapixel photos that look crisper and cleaner than ever.
DJI Osmo plus
DJI’s first handheld gimbal with an integrated zoom camera. A 7× zoom, consisting of 3.5× optical and 2× digital lossless zoom*, gives it a focal length ranging from 22mm to 77mm without sacrificing HD quality. This gives you more control over your composition than ever before.The Osmo+ builds on the advanced stabilization technology introduced with the Osmo to keep the camera flat no matter how you move it, whether you are live streaming or shooting your first film, and has been optimized for ultimate stability during stills capture.
The DJI Goggles are comfortable goggles designed for seamless FPV flying with DJI products. They combine a pair of large ultra-high quality screens, long-range, low lag wireless connectivity, and direct control of photo and video capture. With Intelligent Flight Modes like ActiveTrack, TapFly, Terrain Follow, Cinematic Mode andTripod mode, a totally new flying dimension is created.
