    What other camera is that small that shoots 4k raw again? Don't forget the gimbal and wireless follow focus.

    Definitely very exciting now to be an Inspire owner :) this cam system more than makes up for the bs we were dealt this year (phantom 3 stuff, fw, ya know multirotor problems) I like forward to getting that x5r

    The X5 is a mini GH4 on the front of the Inspire one. A GH4 is $1400. An X5 WITH gimbal is $1700. Thats a pretty awesome deal! 4k raw with a 1.7gps data rate isn't cheap! The BMD Ursa has a data rate of 256mps and is $5000. It weighs as much as a cinderblock. The X5r has 444 color space! People that aren't in the business have no idea how good this camera is.

    the x5r is also probably gonna be around $5000 only saw the $8000 price tag when bought with the inspire....to be honest I'm not comfortable carrying a $5000 camera on a quad...an x8/octo/y6 sure but not a quad

    Well my point even more so

    And don't get me wrong, my inspire has never given me any reason to distrust it. $5700 is a lot of money to haul under that thing.

    Eh. You're talking about a more expensive UAV with likely a more expensive camera. It may end up as an even more expensive yard sale. :)

    Wonder what insuring that whole kit in the air is going to set me back. I'm in no position financially to send that much money into the air without some kind of backup plan for if it comes down badly.

    This may be a dumb question by why is 1080p left out of both cameras? The specs look insane especially for you pros out there either way.

    If it is left out, then that's a painful oversight. A friend that shot for KTM said they only wanted 1080 because their biggest end market was social media and Internet, so 4K was unnecessary. You'd think they'd have left 1080 as an option.

    That's what I was thinking too but had to ask especially in the action sports realm. Thanks for the response!

    It's all about using the right tool for the job. I see the new X5R as a phenomenal tool but if your clients don't want to pay for the higher quality simply use the standard camera that we've all been using anyway. Your higher end clients who know the difference should be willing to pay the extra rental rate for the better quality camera.

    I don't see the value here..
    it can't possibly be 10 times better than the x3 ..
    How much better can it be when it's rated as 4k or whatever. .
    I thought a FLIR camera was expensive. .lol..
    I don't think many pilots will have the guts to risk a 8 k rig to a flyaway or crash...

    I'm not dissing the specs but I had to ask the question. Also agree about using the right tool for the job. It just seemed odd that there isn't option for over-cranking at any of the stated (or missing) resolutions. Love the existing inspire for where I'm at.

    I guess that's the advantage for those of us who already have the Inspire, we have the old camera to do the 1080 stuff if we need to. Just need space in my case for carrying two cameras, but I'm sure I'll find a way :)
