The next generation of aerial cameras
Meet the ZenMuse X5, the world’s first mirrorless, compact Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography and cinematography. Designed to work with the DJI Inspire 1 ready-to-fly platform, the ZenMuse X5 packs a powerful sensor that’s capable of recording 4K videos at up to 30 fps and capturing still images at 16MP. Equipped with the standard MFT interchangeable lens mount and allowing full wireless remote control over focus, aperture, and more, the ZenMuse X5 lets you shoot the way you want. Welcome to the future of aerial imaging.
Increased dynamic range
With 12.8 stops of dynamic range, shadows and highlights in everything you capture is brought out in perfect clarity.
Greater pixel clarity
Shooting with the ZenMuse X5’s M4/3 sensor results in images that are crisper and more detailed than any previous aerial camera. When compared with the X3 camera with the original Inspire 1, the difference is clear in images that truly come to life.
Built inside the ZenMuse X5 is a powerful Micro Four Thirds sensor that’s absolutely revolutionary for an aerial camera. With a sensor eight times the size of that in the previous X3 camera included with the Inspire 1, this new MFT sensor enables high quality, high sensitivity image recording at an ISO range of 100-25600. With a sophisticated balance of high-resolving power, accurate gradation, and low noise, you are realising your artistic and creative vision as never before.
Ready to fly
Say goodbye to frustratingly long setups. The ZenMuse X5 is perfectly compatible with the Inspire 1, DJI’s professional, ready to fly aerial platform. Instantly ready and bringing a level of control and convenience that only a fully integrated system can provide, you have a combination of imaging prowess and ease-of-use that is unprecedented in any aerial imaging system.
With the ZenMuse X5, you have an unprecedented level of control right at your fingertips. In the intuitive auto-focus mode, simply tap on the screen of your mobile device to tell the camera to focus on a specific area. You can also easily manually change settings such as focus, shutter, and aperture through the user-friendly DJI GO app. With the ZenMuse X5, you are always ready to take control.
Professional aerial video
Despite its compact size, the ZenMuse X5 is a powerful video camera that’s capable of recording 4K (3840 x 2160) at up to 30 fps, 2.7K (2704x1520) at up to 30 fps, and Full HD (1920 x 1080) at up to 60 fps in MP4/MOV format. The ZenMuse X5 enables you to record professional-level footage with stunning clarity and detail. A higher speed signal readout suppresses the rolling shutter effect when recording, resulting in beautiful footage even when flying at high speeds. The ZenMuse X5 also comes equipped with convenient features such as Zebra Pattern and Focus Peaking making it a camera that’s truly fit for any job.
With a MFT sensor that’s capable of capturing photos at 16MP, the ZenMuse X5 produces print-ready images that look as good in a frame as they do on your screen. The extra pixels represent a 25% increase over the original Inspire 1 camera. With the shutter speed increased to as quick as
1/8000 of a second and the power of the new imaging processor enabling burst capture of up to 7 full size photos per second, the ZenMuse X5 helps you relish every memorable moment.
Thanks to DJI’s unparalleled expertise in stabilisation systems, the ZenMuse X5 is equipped with a highly reliable 3-axis gimbal that automatically stabilises your camera in flight. The gimbal constantly communicates with the aircraft, and quickly compensates for every minor movement. With a precision accuracy of 0.02°, sub-pixel stabilisation is occurring and as a result, the ZenMuse X5 produces silky smooth footage sharp photos even with long exposure no matter how you fly.
Interchangeable lens mount
As the world’s first Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography and videography, the ZenMuse X5 gives you the freedom to choose your lens. By utilising the standard MFT mount, one of the most popular lens systems in the camera industry, the ZenMuse X5 is well positioned to benefit from new products and innovations from major lens manufacturers.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
