There are times when technology pushes boundaries but whats really special is when boundaries are completely ignored and a new device completely redefines possibility. The DJI Inspire 1 is the world's most advanced, all-in-one aerial filmmaking system. It all starts with the ready-to-fly, innovative design. The sleek, aerodynamic body is remarkably lightweight, especially when you consider the technology that is packed into it.
A smart flight controller, large propellers, and powerful motors make the Inspire 1 responsive and stable. During flight, the strong, lightweight carbon fiber arms raise up, transforming the Inspire 1’s shape and giving you a 360 degree view from the built in, stabilized camera.
The Inspire's camera shoots in crystal-clear 4k video in 24, 25, and 26 frames per second and in 1080p in 24, 25, 30, 50, and 60 frames per second. It captures beautiful 12 megapixel stills and a 94 degree wide angle lense eliminates distortion and fills your imagery with crisp, vivid colors. The camera is detachable, allowing flexibility for future upgrades. The Inspire 1 also includes DJI's 3 axis gimbal technology for world class camera stabilization. The Inspire 1's camera rotates a full 360 degrees and tilts up and down 125 degrees, vastly expanding your options for creating content that truly reflects anything your mind's eye can see.
A brand-new optical flow positioning system utilizes downward-facing sensors to stabilize the Inspire 1 when it is close to the ground. This means that the Inspire 1 can fly indoors with perfect position hold, and is able to hover stably at low altitudes even without a GPS signal. On the remote, sensitive control sticks make flying simple, easy and responsive. Ergonomic dials control gimbal movements and camera settings, while dedicated buttons allow instant photo capture and video recording.
Integrated DJI Lightbridge technology allows you to see what you are shooting, in HD, at a range of over 1km, so you can clearly see the details of your aerial perspecives as you capture them. Enabled by Lightbridge, the mobile app gives you a high-definition view of what the camera sees. It allows you to change camera settings and includes a full manual mode.
The Inspire 1 encourages collaborative creativity. By using a second controller at the same time, a dedicated operator can control where the camera is pointing as the pilot maneuvers the Inspire - allowing for precise aerial cinematography moves previously only available on larger platforms.
The DJI Inspire 1 seamlessly integrates groundbreaking aerial imaging technology into the expression of your wildest ideas, and you'll redefine, again, what it means to explore aerial perspectives.
A COMPLETE READY-TO-FLY SYSTEM
Everything you need is included and ready to go offering you a complete aerial film making tool in a box. Just add a mobile device or screen for live HD view.
ADVANCED, READY-TO-FLY DESIGN
Imagine holding the future in your hands. Designed to be powerful while lightweight, flexible while providing the stability you need, the Inspire 1 is DJI’s most advanced complete package. All of the latest aerial technology is packed into one simple, ready-to-fly system, putting you in the sky within minutes.
Strong carbon fiber arms lift out of sight, transforming the way you shoot. Get a full, unrestricted 360° view of the world below and create images like never before.
Shoot up to 4K video and capture 12 megapixel photos with the Inspire 1 camera. The lens consists of 9 elements in 9 groups including an aspherical element producing extreme clarity, while Adobe DNG RAW support gives you the power to make every shot a masterpiece. Everything is better in 4K.
MODULAR, UPGRADEABLE SYSTEM
Inspire 1’s gimbal and camera system can be removed from the aircraft for safe transport and future upgrades.
LIVE HD VIEW
A real-time feed from your Inspire 1’s camera is displayed in 720p HD on your mobile device giving you a perfect view of what the camera sees to frame your shots.
This is made possible by an all new and improved version of DJI's Lightbridge technology which can transmit video from up to 2km away.
For an even greater level of precision, use a second remote controller and fly with a friend. With two operators controlling the same Inspire 1, one person pilots the flight path while the other aims the gimbal and camera.
Each user can have their own screen to see exactly what is being shot in real-time. By working in tandem, you’re capturing shots that are more complex and artistic than ever before.
FLY INDOORS AND WITHOUT GPS USING VISION POSITIONING SYSTEM
Indoor flight has always been a true test of skill for all levels of pilots. DJI’s new Optical Flow technology uses a specially designed camera as well as sonic waves to bring simplicity to flying indoors. This technology allows the Inspire to hold its position, stop when the controls are released, and respond to your commands even when GPS is unavailable.
INTELLIGENT POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
A fully integrated intelligent battery powers your Inspire 1 and virtually manages itself.
When in flight, your remaining battery power is shown live, letting you know how long you can continue to fly. Advanced algorithms calculate the distance of your aircraft and estimated time to return home, letting you know when it’s time to fly back.
The battery tracks the voltage of each cell, the total lifetime charges and discharges, and the overall health and battery status. All this helps you keep your Inspire 1 in the air and flying for years to come.
Take absolute control of your Inspire 1 with DJI’s most sophisticated remote controller to date. Featuring dedicated buttons for photo and video capture, a gimbal control dial, an integrated rechargeable battery and more, it’s easy and intuitive to fly. The controller has an HDMI and USB port allowing you to connect mobile devices or compatible screens.
OPTIONAL DUAL-OPERATOR CONTROL
Fly with a friend and share your vision. Achieve shots that never would have been possible alone by using two remote controllers. One person flies, while the other controls the camera.
EASY, SAFE FLIGHT
Even if you’ve never flown before, taking off and landing your Inspire 1 is easy and safe. It takes just one tap to make your Inspire 1 takeoff and transform, ready to start filming. Then tap again to have it transform into landing mode and land.
When GPS is available, the Home Point (the location you are standing) automatically refreshes, so your Inspire 1 always knows where you are even if you move around. When you tell it to come back, or in case of an emergency, it knows exactly where to go and land safely.
Take complete control of your camera and flight system with a comprehensive mobile app. Everything from manual camera controls to flight telemetry and even auto takeoff and landing are just a tap away, with more functions and updates coming soon.
