We cannot tell what the footage looks like yet as we have not seen anything that has not had the crap compressed out of it by YouTube etc. When we see some files posted straight out of camera we will get a chance to download them and really see what the camera is capable of (or not).
No info about retro fitting? There is a lot of info. Just look. I wasnt even that interested in the subject because i am going to wait until people have their hands on them and even then i saw videos and tons of info about them.Relax? I've invested in good faith twice in DJI products with proprietary cameras and they have turned out to be crap. Why do we have to rely on consumers/customers to get these friggin' answers. This pisses me off...the reason this pisses me off is that the overall Inspire 1 system is great...people are sending in their money now to this company for the X5...without any real field evaluations of the footage provided...as well as no real discussion about retrofitting the Inspire 1. Whatever...I'm done with this.
Huh? Isn't that how it works with just about any product from any manufacturer in any field?This pisses me off...the reason this pisses me off is that the overall Inspire 1 system is great...people are sending in their money now to this company for the X5...without any real field evaluations of the footage provided...
I'm actually becoming less enthusiastic and more frustarted as time goes on. One the immediate release of the X5 I was overjoyed and couldn't wait to buy one. Luckily, I've decided to wait. I too am really pissed off that this camera has the same bitrate as the X3 and a darn GoPro! DJI are trying to sell this camera as a pro bit of kit, but as a pro, all I see so far is amateur footage!
Unless DJI has pulled off a miracle with 60mbs ill be sticking with what i have. The only thing I really like is the 16mp stills. 4K@24fps is also a joke. Not even the X5R does faster frame rate. Am I missing something here?
Also depends on the codec and GOP structureIt does 30p in UHD (3840x2160). The 24p limit is for DCI 4K (4096x2160). Unless you're planning on delivering in a wider aspect ratio than the standard 16:9, shooting in DCI 4K is silly.
30p is a bit disappointing as the top frame rate for UHD, but I shudder to think of what 60Mb UHD video at 60 or 120 fps would look like (more frames = more data to compress = less quality at the same bitrate). 30fps is already HEAVILY compressed.
Interesting. So basically we will have to wait and see actual footage to determine if the video quality is improved at 4k. From a still camera point of view it sounds awesome though.Not necessarily the same implementation or low level settings.
Again different encoders can differ A LOT with the same data rate, it's only one of hundreds of parameters that effect quality.
