    DJI Official - DJI X5 – Effortless Micro 4/3 Aerial Film Making | DJI

    Pretty pricey considering you can get a GH4 with Z15 gimbal for almost half the cost. I didn't see anything about an updated Inspire 2 so it looks like you just pay that much for camera/gimbal on top of almost 3k. The S1000 seems like a better bet but I would like an independent analysis of the two side by side.

    Also Lightbridge 2 so I would assume at least that will be incorporated in an update Inspire model.

    Sorry if this is duplicate but I didn't see anything posted except Mal's insider info (the dji website) two days ago

    The GH4 body only is 560 g.

    The X5 is 526 g, including lens and gimbal.
    (The X5R is 583 g)

    DJI released an updated Inspire model -- the Inspire 1 Pro. Other than the obvious camera upgrade, they did not mention any other upgrades. Some things have been visually changed though. For example, compare the landing gear between the two.

    Would it not need a better battery to keep the flight time up with more weight and more power for with the new camera?

    The TB48 is a better battery.

    So Lightbridge 2 is a 1400 modular upgrade then?
