We had the pleasure of going to a super secret location aka Brooklyn NYC to get some flight time with the new DJI Inspire 1 to do a Real World Preview.
I am going to run down the top level specs that I think are the most important to focus on right off the bat.
This is an all new “drone” from DJI that will be priced right around $3,000. I am sure you are curious where this falls in on their lineup. At the bottom of the lineup you have the DJI Phantom which I equate to a cropped sensor camera like a rebel or D3300. At the top of their range you have the S-800 and S-900 which are more like your 1DX or D4s. Now you have the Inspire 1 which falls smack dab in the middle and I would equate it to an entry level full frame camera like the D610 or so.
This drone is larger and more powerful than the phantom and is now carbon fiber (2.9 kilos or 6 pounds). It is extremely simple to set up, all you have to do is attach the self tightening props, connect the battery and you are pretty much ready to fly.
You have a built in DJI designed and built 4K capable video camera on a 3 axis gimbal. It is a removable “payload” that means at some point you may be able to switch out other cameras or devices that DJI or possibly others release.
Another point of emphasis is that the lens is no longer a fisheye lens. This should make most filmmakers very happy.
It can record video at 4k 24 and 30 FPS at 65 megabit and 1080 at 60 FPS progressive all to a removable Micro SD Card.
