Having shelled out a good few bob for a DJI Osmo Pro X5 camera, lens and handle plus batteries I was less than impressed with the fan noise during filming. Especially when they have fixed this on the X3 camera.
The noise during filming makes the camera unless in an open mic situation on a film set. I do hope DJI are onto this and can come up with a solution ASAP.
I do like the ability to focus a lot closer with the X5 and the shallow depth of field compared to the X3 (closest focus = 1.5m) but was hoping for more control over the cameras ISO, rather than the usual 100-200-400 etc. some steps in-between would be nice.
Another urgent issue that needs addressing is the ability to switch off the front red LED tally light, this is not an issue with the X3 as it has no tally light.
Where the OSMO Pro strikes in my opinion is in low light, that micro 4/3rd sensor gives you a fantastic advantage over the X3 in low light quality.
SERIOUS FLAW USING AUDIO…
NOTE : I asked DJI if they could reduce or stop the fan during record mode ? REPLY…”We’re very sorry. The reason is that X5 generates more heat than X3, so the fan cannot be stopped or it will overheat.”
I will experiment with a radio mic today.
