    Just needs remote focus and aperture control gears for my Nokton lenses. 😀

  • Wow, if it’s all true, it’s a heck of a camera.

    13 stops of DR, D-log, 4K, RAW, etc.???

    And what 16MP sensor is that that even Panasonic doesn’t seem to have? If the specs are really there, DJI could easily create a Micro4/3 video camera standalone.

      and may this camera uses Panny Sensor?

      • Now I actually I think it’s the same 16MP from Panasonic, it’s just that DJI used the nominal 12.8 stops of DR for both cameras – which you can get in photographic RAW with Panasonic’s camera – but I doubt it’s really that same mark in the X5, since the GH4 can only extra about 11 stops in video for Cinelike D and 12 stops in V-log. Maybe in the X5R you can also get those same 12.8 stops since you can use video RAW, but nonetheless DJI put that both cameras outputing these 12.8 stops, which is probably not accurate.

          that why? gh had no raw on video.


    It seems like a glorified Olympus Air A01 camera – which is not a bad thing…
