  • The X5S camera quality
  • 5.2K clean image quality – depth and resolution is amazing
  • Apple ProRes Codec integration is very handy
  • The overall ergonomics (case, battery, setup time, charger, etc…)
  • The extended flying time of up to 25 minutes (I think I managed to get 20)
  • Improved flying stability for smoother shots
  • Improved flying speed, ideal for aerial cinematography
  • SSD workflow
  • Safety features (redundant batteries and IMU)
  • Wider viewing angle
  • Acceptable low-light capabilities

The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. An all-new image processing system records at up to 5.2K in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes and more. It goes from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just 4 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 67mph (108kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S), while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures. FlightAutonomy has been revised and developed specifically for the Inspire 2, providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. Increased intelligence adds multiple intelligent flight modes, including Spotlight Pro, giving even single pilots the ability to create complex, dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an onboard FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously, for better pilot and camera operator collaboration. The drone will be available for sale from January, 2017.

DJI Inspire 2 Drone is more drone than most of us will ever need

The Inspire 1 was a revelation. The first filmmaking drone in the world to integrate an HD video transmission system, 360° rotating gimbal and a 4K camera, as well as the simplicity of app control. The launches of the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras further cemented the Inspire as a critical tool for filmmakers around the globe. The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. An all-new image processing system records at up to 5.2K in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes and more. It goes from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 58mph (94kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S),while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures. FlightAutonomy has been revised and developed specifically for the Inspire 2,providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy.

CONS
  • ProRes color defaults to “none” and burns in a “bad look” when not changed manually
  • Obstacle avoidance triggers too quickly and ruins my “flyby” shots
  • The DJI Go App is too crowded, some buttons are too small
  • The image transmission often broke up too quickly, at a distance of around 800m
  • Every second shot had a bad horizon, although this can be fixed in post easily
  • Focusing is still not good.

The Good Drone

Routledge. 2016
