I was JUST about to finally pull the trigger on the X5R. Wanted to get the SDD for it and all. I had funds put aside for it for a couple months just waiting and for some reason, something in my mind kept me from buying it. It just seems like so much money for what you are getting as far as what I'm used to paying for normal cameras like a DSLR. Now I understand, this was for my Osmo and Inspire but with the hard drive to shoot raw at the 2.7kbps at "Raw", instead of the prosumer X3, X5 and what I believe is equivalent to the X3 on the P3P and P4. I have several raw cameras that shoot quite capably on the ground in full RAW but then I noticed something when I was looking through the specs of the X5R. I was just pursuing some specs, and what is probably a character flaw, I research the heck out of something that is over $300 before I buy it as a matter of course. It's Raw format is not normal RAW as it is in most cameras, it's "Lossless JPEG". First of all, I don't know if it's even legal to call it RAW because JPEGs are compressed. Now I did a little reading on Lossless JPEG and while it's not as lossy as a standard JPEG image (which is highly compressed), but have your own read of what "Lossless JPEG" which is what the DJI "Raw" format is on the expensive Zenmuse X5R, here is what it actually is. Someone with a very good knowledge of photography, if you have used the X5R and could either tell me of your experience with it, or compare it to another camera even, that would be much appreciated. Also, would love to know how the Lossless JPEG if brought into whatever editor/grader you are using, how it treated it. The reason for making it "JPEG Lossless" vs. RAW (as in completely uncompressed video) is simply the size. Size is a little smaller and even at these great spreads if achieved at 2.7kbps, you are still not near the top of what 4K video should be caught at (and if you don't have the SSD and you are using a SD card, I am not even sure if capturing at JPEG Lossless is possible and if they made it so it is possible, that would explain why they used that format instead of straight RAW. What is lossless JPEG? :: Digital Photo Secrets A quote from that article (and I read a few that were negative on "Lossless JPEG". FTR. "photo-jpeg" was an old video format that for like a year was my goto deliverable for finals so it's possible that it might look completely perfect but I would definitely not call any video made up of a sequence of JPEGS, RAW. Just wouldn't. If anything, it's given me pause and I didn't pull the trigger today on it once again.
