New cameras and camera systems for the DJI Inspire 2
The DJI Inspire 1 came with the innovative cameras Zenmuse X3, Zenmuse X5 and Zenmuse X5R. For more specific shots, there was the Zenmuse XT (thermal imaging camera) and the Zenmuse Z3 (optical zoom). These cameras are also compatible with the DJI Inspire 2. There is no question that, in addition to the new X4S and X5S cameras, even more innovative models with new functions will be added.
In addition, DJI has announced a handheld gimbal for the Zenmuse cameras. This should then also enable recordings on land and by hand - strong competition for them Recalled GoPro Karma drone with "Karma Grip". The competition is really very intense.
Intelligent flight modes for professional recordings
"The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and does it better. ”Says DJI about the new drone. This can be seen, among other things, in the drone's innovative flight modes. For example, it is used Spotlight Pro, that is, the fixation of an object, person or animal during the flight and while it is moving - made possible for a single pilot.
Then there are the modes Point of interest and Waypoint, for which the improved obstacle detection is also important. As with other DJI models, ActiveTrack, TAPFLO and QuickSpin usable. Finally, of course, operation via two units (flight and video recording separately) is also possible. The pilot and cameraman can stand up to 100 meters apart.

Conclusion on the comparison of the two DJI Inspire drones
A larger transmission range, new cameras, a higher maximum speed, new flight modes and so on - the DJI Inspire 2 is actually a completely innovative model and not a disguised third version of the DJI Inspire 1. Both drones do not really help private people addressed, but rather filmmakers, cameramen, directors and all those who want to become one. The innovations will pay off, especially for professional users who regularly use multicopters.
