    DJI stated the Inspire can take different cameras down the road and that they may actually offer new cameras. What would you like to see?

    Me:
    Optical zoom?

    Dual lens camera for 3D acquisition……..(even if the live feed was only 2D) And yes …. optical zoom.

    Personally I'd love to see a larger sensor, with some more mp built with photography as a priority. Possibly interchangeable lenses, but the current fov is perfect for my needs. Maybe an ir camera for people doing surveys?

    Larger sensor, faster lens, threading for off-the-shelf filters.

    It's already F2.8 !! Plenty fast enough
    A bigger sensor is a must. The 4/3 that we're all expecting now should do just fine.
    The current camera is great for video but isn't much improvement on the Phantom's camera.
    Something ~18+ megapixels and optimised for still photography would be good.
    Automated panorama taking and camera rotation to vertical format would be useful.
    Optical zoom isn't necessary and would add too much weight and complication.

    I can't see a reason for more megpixels, what rules is the quality of the lenses.

    • MFT sensor
    • Super-fast processor and
    • Options for much less compression

    Not on the Inspire -- the weight penalty for a bigger camera with bigger lenses is prohibitive!

    I guess I should have noticed the necro thread...

    Anyway, FLIR is clearly the next major tool for the Inspire toolbox.

    Down the road a bit I can see SAR radar for ground imaging and 3D model building that's quicker and with less processing required than 3D models built from image data.
