My experience with the DJI Osmo Pro X5 camera


Recommended Posts

Will upload photos asap.

PROS

1.  balances immediately

2. interfaces with the follow focus seamlessly

3.  easy to use

 

CONS

1. video feed to my android smartphone looked terrible - choppy - unable to tell if footage was smooth or not and or bumpy.  Wish there was a hdmi output to like a smallhd monitor.

2. no way to shoot flat without lut.  so it's flat and you just don't really know - you are flying blind

3.  sensitivity of the camera is pretty low.  I didn't get to grade it yet, but I'd rate it around for my tastes 400 ISO.

 

CONCLUSION:

I'm not going to buy it for now.  I think the gimbal war needs to be won with using a much better camera like the GH5.  Cracking that code.  Making it work as easily as the DJI Osmo, but with a great camera in it.  Who will step up and do it?  

I know.  Black magic camera.  

Why not, right?

They have a great little micro camera.  Now build around it and stabilize it.

Thank you for this topic as I wanted to create one asking about this camera.

Sor far DJI has always fell on me and I m tired of their XXX = Bought a Ronin that barely worked, OSMO with X3 : Crappy Camera, Osmo Mobile : 4K problems and can't access video files if you do not have the Osmo mobile turned ON! (Each time I returned what I purchased after a week.

BUT... the Osmo was a really good Gimbal, the X3 Camera was crap. So I am really looking to get some nice feedback on the X5 before doing anything. The Osmo with a X5 is a nice combo, better and easier to carry around than my GH4 or GX7MKII and a Came TV Single for example.
