The DJI Inspire series is divided into two – the Inspire 1 and the Inspire 2.

The Inspire 1 has great camera options such as being able to use the Zenmuse XT thermal camera for search & Rescue. Also used for solar panel inspection, or firefighting. The Inspire 2 is not capable of carrying the thermal XT sensors. Inspire 1 is versatile and capable of cinema quality image capture. This is achieved with a Zenmuse X5 micro four thirds camera with extreme dynamic range. You can even change the lens on the camera to fit your needs as it has a standard micro four thirds lens mount.

Inspire 2 features fast flight speeds (up to 58 mph), a dual battery setup (for battery redundancy), obstacle avoidance sensors (on the front, top, and bottom). Additionally, it is compatible with DJI’s latest cinema camera, the super 35 sensor X7.

It also comes with a forward-facing FPV camera. Hence, making it easy to see where the drone is heading while controlling the downward facing camera and gimbal. The drone also features the company’s newest professional image processing system called CineCore 2.1.  This is capable of capturing 6K video in CinemaDNG, Apple ProRes, and H.26 @100Mbps formats. In terms of design, the Inspire 2 still rocks the familiar and original design of the first generation. However with a few tweaks particularly at its nose-mounted sensor bar, darker shell colour, and much larger motors. If you need a fast flying, completely integrated professional camera drone platform then this is the drone for you.
