    Come on buy and take a look. This is an amazing camera, a definite improvement over the x3. The zoom is amazing and is super stable. Call me with any questions or concerns, God Bless.

    Hey buddy, the Z3 is definitely a great camera/gimbal setup. It offers an exceptionally good zoom factor plus amazing stabilization. Its definitely a keeper. That being said, the X5 is no slouch either. The X5 is just different with all the amazing lenses it can carry. I have gotten some amazing videos as well as stills with my X5 but I have to admit if I had to pick just one camera to fly on my Inspire I woulf pic the Z3. Overall it is just pretty darn awesome. It's really hard to pick one over the other as they both offer amazing attributes. I guess my final answer is if your wallet won't scream too loud for buying the Z3 then I would have to give a big yes to this purchase. I'm sure we will be seeing some great footage from the Z very soon. I know I'm going to post some on Monday. If I can help in any way please don't hesitate to call or email me @ contact@flthighusa.com
    Respectfully,

    Ralph

    Thanks Ralph, but isn't the Z3 half the price of the X5?

    I thought Z3 was created more for still shots and not for videos. If it's anything like this video I can see why!

    The Z3 is priced at 899 yes. A great price for this camera.

    Not at all, the Z3 performs equally as well for video.

    I am a bit confused. This appears to be footage from a Phantom, not an Inspire. You can see the Phantom arms at one point, and the case the operator has is not big enough to hold an Inspire.

    BTW, does anyone know the FPV glasses he is using?

    If you are in Canada, go to "DronesToronto.com"
    Excellent after sales service too! If you have a problem with the machine, it goes back to Toronto and not the States. Quicker turn around.

    If it was 2.8 all the way through I would consider it. But zooming will require change the exposure because it is not. I love the idea but I like my primes.

    Where does it say it is not par focal?
    If it changes aperture while zooming, that is not good!

    Usually a lens that is say 2.8 through would be heavy with the optics. If the aperture doesn't change 14-42, which it does, it would be more than $299. Its too slow at 3.5-5.6.

    Parfocal means the focus is maintained throughout the zoom range, not the aperture
