Reduced Compression for Amazing Details
The Zenmuse X5R gives you lossless 4K RAW video and crystal clear 16 megapixel photos. No other dedicated aerial camera can capture the same level of detail in every frame and every shot, even at distances that defy the imagination.
Built for the Sky
To create the first fully integrated, professional aerial imaging system, the Zenmuse X5R was engineered and designed from the very beginning to be perfectly compatible with the Inspire 1, DJI’s most advanced quadcopter. With 360-degree camera movement and dual controller support, the Inspire 1 is the favourite ready-to-fly aerial platform for enthusiasts and professionals worldwide. Now, with a simple installation procedure, you can upgrade the camera on your Inspire 1 to the Zenmuse X5R, vastly increasing its imaging capabilities while retaining its ease of use and reliability.
With the Zenmuse X5R, DJI has brought the power of RAW to a dedicated aerial camera for the first time. Capable of recording 4K (3840 x 2160) videos in RAW at up to 30fps, the Zenmuse X5R gives you the ability to capture every video with all of its original data intact, giving you complete control to edit every single frame in post as a RAW file. Coupled with a maximum bitrate of an astonishing 2.4Gbps, the 4K videos recorded by the Zenmuse X5R will amaze you with a level of detail and clarity that’s absolutely unmatched by any other aerial camera.
Thanks to its large MFT sensor, the Zenmuse X5R is capable of producing print-ready 16 MP still frames with an incredible amount of details. With high quality, high sensitivity image recording capabilities, the Zenmuse X5R captures photographs, in both JPEG and RAW, that will meet the highest of standards. The extra pixels (25% increase over the original Inspire 1 camera) not only provide you with more detailed images, but also more
room to work with in post-processing. P/S/A/M shooting modes are all available, providing you with the freedom to shoot the way you want.
World Leading Stabilisation
Perfectly integrated with the camera, a 3-axis gimbal utilizes DJI’s world-leading stabilization technology to automatically stabilize your camera in flight. This gimbal communicates constantly with the aircraft as you fly, and powerful brushless motors instantly respond to every minor movement to keep the camera level, even when capturing long exposure or time-lapse content. So focus on what you want to shoot, knowing that the resulting footage will be stable and ready to use.
Interchangeable Lens Mount
As the world’s first Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for professional aerial photography and videography, the Zenmuse X5R gives you the freedom to choose your lens. By utilizing the standard MFT mount, the Zenmuse X5R is well positioned to benefit from new products and innovations from major lens manufacturers.
Currently, a range of lenses are compatible with the Zenmuse X5R. With different specifications but the same top-notch quality, these three lenses provide you with a great level of flexibility.

The ZENMUSE X5 cameras capture 16 Megapixel images with stunning details and records 4K video. With 12.8 stops of dynamic range, shadows and highlights in everything you capture is brought out in perfect clarity.The ZENMUSE X5 has a M4/3 lens mount which gives your photography flexibility by letting you change lenses. Currently, there are three lenses for the ZENMUSE X5 M4/3 lens mount: the Panasonic Lumix 15mm, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12mm and DJI MFT 15mm.
What’s the difference between ZENMUSE X5 and ZENMUSE X5R?
The biggest difference between them is in video recording capabilities, storage media, and workflow. The ZENMUSE X5R shoots video in lossless format to preserve maximum detail and enable precise editing and post-processing, giving cinematographers full control over the look of their footage. The ZENMUSE X5R has an integrated 512GB SSD drive for storing the lossless video recorded. DJI has designed an editing software specifically for lossless videos, enabling high-end filmmakers to easily edit and process the videos according to their own needs.
What is the advantage of the ZENMUSE X5 Series, compared to other M4/3 cameras in the market?
The ZENMUSE X5 Series are the first M4/3 cameras designed specifically for aerial photography. The cameras come with an integrated 3-axis gimbal stabilization system, and are designed for use with the Inspire 1. The camera shoots 16 Megapixel photos and 4K video, and can be fully controlled via the new DJI GO app.
Can I use the ZENMUSE X5 Series separately as a stand-alone camera?
No. The ZENMUSE X5 Series cameras must be used together with the Inspire 1 or future supported DJI products.
What DJI aerial systems can the ZENMUSE X5 Series be used with?
The ZENMUSE X5 Series is currently compatible with the DJI Inspire 1 and the Matrice 100. More compatible products will be available in future.
What are the benefits of the M4/3 sensor?
The M4/3 sensor is eight times larger than the sensor in the ZENMUSE X3, enabling it to capture incredibly detailed images and videos, including UHD 4K, and gives it improved low-light performance. The M4/3 lens mount allows the use three lenses currently.
What is the M4/3 mount?
The M4/3 lens mount is the interface between the camera body and the attached M4/3 lens. Thanks to the standardized M4/3 mount, you can select three lenses currently.

What lenses are compatible with the ZENMUSE X5 Series?
Currently, there are three prime lenses compatible with the X5: the Panasonic Lumix 15mm, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12mm and DJI MFT 15mm.
Why aren’t all MFT lenses compatible with the ZENMUSE X5 Series?
To ensure that the 3-axis gimbal’s movements are unrestricted, the lenses are required to fit the gimbal in terms of weight and size. Not all existing lenses fit these requirements, which is why not all MFT lenses are compatible with the ZENMUSE X5 Series.
What is the DJI GO App, and where can I download it?
DJI GO is an easy-to-use mobile application for iOS and Android devices for use together with DJI products. For more information please visit: https://www.dji.com/product/goapp
How do I install the ZENMUSE X5R on to the Inspire 1?
If you have an Inspire 1 with a ZENMUSE X3 installed, the mounting mechanism should be changed to the new one that's included with the ZENMUSE X5 series. The new mounting mechanism that's provided with ZENMUSE X5 Series are also backwards compatible with the Zenmuse X3 camera.
Why does the ZENMUSE X5R have an integrated SSD drive, but not the ZENMUSE X5?
Because the ZENMUSE X5R's footage captured is lossless and uncompressed, it requires a large amount of memory for storage. We offer a 512GB SSD with the ZENMUSE X5R for this reason.
Can I remove the lens hood when using my ZENMUSE X5 with the designated lenses?
It depends on the lens used. The 3-axis gimbal is sensitive to the weight of the mounted lens. When you are using an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12mm, the lens hood can be removed without disturbing the gimbal’s operations. However, if you are using a Panasonic Lumix 15mm or DJI MFT 15mm, the lens hood must be attached. For more detail, please go to the download page for official guidance.
