Greg Malone says:

Hey there, 1st thanks for the great review. It was the final push I needed to purchase one.
I did my first shoot using the SSD in 5.2 k raw utilizing the additional licenses (pro res and dng). After loading the footage I’m unable to view it, and what I can view has discoloration and is glitchy to a point of non use. Is there a process that I should be aware of to use this footage? DO I need to convert the files to another format? Do I need to provide info to unlock the licenses? I have no idea . PLEASE HELP as my clients are bugging out!
Thank you very much

Hello Sebastian, thanks for this great and informative video! I’m looking to purchase one of these but have little experience in Post Processing. I’m considering in investing in Final Cut Pro since I already have a MAC Platform. I use Adobe LR for all of my SLR Photography Work, but have heard that Final Cut Pro is easier to use. Let me know your thoughts on workflow complexity when using Final Cut Pro and what other good options I should consider when working with Inspire 2 Video Clips. Thanks!

Hi Seb I have been following you for a couple years since your other videos. Nice to see your thorough review and opinion on the Inspire 2. Although I watched your videos a long time ago on cinematic aerial video I ended up going into fpv racing and freestyle instead lol. I wasted so much money doing that lol.

Now Im ready to redirect my efforts into aerial video which was my first choice from the beginning but I got distracted with fpv racing. I’m considering the PH4 Pro, Inspire 1 X5R, and inspire 2 X5S. I already do camera work for a company but not aerial footage. So hopefully my love for drones and film production will merge when I get one of these aerial platforms that I have mentioned. Looking forward to what you will be releasing next!

Kirk Watson says:

Great review, cheers:)


Can the 5k camera work on the osmo?

Hayden Smith says:

Excellent review. Thankyou very much for doing that! With the footage in this review, did you shoot in d-log or ‘normal’ colour modes? If using d-log.. do you use resolve or LUTS in post?



Thanks Seb… The day you released this video I went ahead and purchased the I2… the effort you put into this video had a positive end result. Keep up the fire buddy!

Just wondering what the practical benefits of 5.2k are, obviously if you want to crop an image then the higher res will be better but does it look better when resized to 4k or 1080p? What is the difference in final image quality for instance when you downscale both 5.2k and 4k to 1080p, given that 4k scales to 1080p perfectly? Surely you’ll almost never use the 5.2k at it’s native res?

Thanks for the vid.

Troy Nguyen says:

Germans do the best reviews.
His command of English is impressive.


If this tiny camera can output ProRes 4444 XQ how come the bigger handheld cameras don’t!?

This is not a uav that you would use a phone to fly. Maybe that’s just me tho.

Critical Stories Multimedia says:

I would need to know what lens was on the Alexa.

Karen Kocharyan says:

Very good film! Thanks! One question… On 480 SSD how long video material in 5.2 K you can shot?

- .shdw - says:

great video! I just wanted to ask, where that was filmed, because that building at 3:40 looks exactly like a building in my far “Neighbourhood”

Andy Trench says:

This review is one of the best out here i’ve seen for ANY drone period. And your flying/shooting is top. Thanks !

digger dugger says:

Incredible review. Thanks…

tom hawley says:

A friend just bought this, what a machine. Nice review

Ign. Enrico says:

Does the inspire 2 has back and side obstacle avoidance?

john baumgarth says:

it hoovers

Ben Lin says:

This guy just looks so damn handsome.

SourLemon28 says:

I don’t know why my drone dosnt hoover

Chris Nong says:

It’s weird that I can’t find much discussions about DJI Osmo 2 with a brand new X5S camera. Technically Inspire 2 is the most advanced camera/drone to date. DJI will change the entire game if they manage to put all the video processing/recording from Inspire 2 + X5S into a brand new camera/stick. However I highly doubt they will introduce DJI OSMO 2 on upcoming NAB or anytime soon. What do you folks think??

David Griffin says:

How did you get permission to shoot in a built-up area?

Karvingaming says:

I really hate when the DJI go app just crashes while I’m flying. It just tells the drone to return to home. IT IS REALLY DANGEROUS considering there are a lot of trees in my area.
