Thanks to the great team at Florida Drone Supply, my DJI Inspire 2 has arrived and is now up and going. This flying platform is simply an amazing aerial imagery machine. I have started with the X4s for simplicity sake, and to have a basic camera that I can take into difficult situations. However, I do have my X7 and 16mm/2.8 on the way, arriving sometime early next week.
While the Inspire itself is amazing, the X4s is clearly not the right camera to pair with this platform. It performs adequately in great light, but everything begins to breakdown in anything other than perfect conditions. The X7 will give me an APS-C platform with excellent low light capabilities and more than enough detail for my needs. Starting with the 16/2.8, which is comparable to the X4s in focal length, I do anticipate adding the 35 and the 50 very quickly. Shooting panoramas with the 50 should be spectacular.
More to follow as the weather clears and I get more time to fly.
