    X9-8K Air covers 14+ stops of dynamic range, which captures rich highlight and shadow details in complex lighting scenarios like sunrises and sunsets. High dynamic range brings more possibilities for post-editing, retaining genuine colors even after significant exposure adjustments.
    Building on DJI's mature color science and technology, the DJI Cinema Color System allows the X9-8K Air to retain authentic colors that redefine the look of aerial cinematography. This applies to natural settings and urban landscapes, and also accurately captures skin tones in different environments and lighting conditions. DCCS ensures effortless color matching between X9-8K Air and ground-based cinema cameras such as DJI Ronin 4D, delivering consistent color style from air to ground to meet the needs of film-production post-editing workflows.
    Inheriting the classic transformable configuration of the Inspire series, Inspire 3 uses an all-new design that supports 360° Pan and Tilt Boost structures. When the landing gear is lowered, the gimbal supports obstruction-free 80° upward-angle shooting, enabling cinematographers to capture strikingly innovative shots.
    Using Repeatable Routes, the aircraft will automatically fly on the same route and maintain all preset parameters such as altitude, speed, gimbal angle, and camera settings. Repeating the same flight mission allows cinematographers to effortlessly perform difficult one-takes, or to fly at different times in the same place to easily create long-duration timelapses that capture transitions such as day to night or season to season.
    3D Dolly can simulate a crane, cablecam, or dolly on film sets while going far beyond the limitations of those devices.

Let’s Answer Your Questions

  • Can I use DJI Inspire 3 with the X9 gimbal camera, TB50 battery, and storage card of DJI Ronin 4D interchangeably?

    The gimbal camera and TB50 battery are not interchangeable. The storage card is interchangeable.

    To improve DJI Inspire 3’s battery life, flight experience, and performance and stability at all attitudes and speeds, Inspire 3’s X9-8K Air gimbal camera has been optimized specially for aerial photography. Compared with the X9-6K and X9-8K gimbal cameras of Ronin 4D, the X9-8K Air’s weight is reduced by approximately 50% with a centralized center of gravity, ensuring an improved flight time and flight experience. Additionally, the gimbal axis arms and lens locking design adopt optimized vibration-proof designs for aerial photography so that the aircraft can stay stable even during dramatic or high-speed flight maneuvers.

    The new TB51 battery features higher energy density with reduced weight, and size, which is beneficial for the total flight time and wind resistance when flying forward, and is more advantageous than TB50 in terms of discharge voltage and reliability.

    The DJI PROSSD 1TB of DJI Ronin 4D is interchangeable with Inspire 3.

    Both the X9-6K and X9-8K gimbal cameras of DJI Ronin 4D weigh approximately 1.04 kg, while the X9-8K Air of DJI Inspire 3 weighs approximately 516 g, for a weight reduction of approximately 50%.

  • Are the gimbal camera, remote controller, storage card, and battery of DJI Inspire 3 interchangeable with those of DJI Inspire 2?


    All modules of DJI Inspire 3 have been redesigned to deliver fully upgraded performance in terms of flight, imaging, video transmission, storage, and battery life.

    Gimbal Camera: DJI Inspire 3 comes with the X9-8K Air gimbal camera with a newly designed gimbal camera quick-release port that meets the data transmission requirements of 8K CinemaDNG videos, and further ensures stable gimbal connection during flight.

    Remote Controller: DJI Inspire 3 comes with the professional-level DJI RC Plus and professional accessories such as a strap and waist support. The DJI RC Plus supports O3 Pro, a cinema-grade video transmission system that has taken a generational leap in transmission distance, latency, and overall stability. The 7-inch high-bright screen delivers up to 1,200-nits of brightness to provide an extraordinary outdoor monitoring experience. It also features several buttons and dials on the front, back, and top, which enable fast and intuitive operation. Button functions can also be customized. The built-in battery of RC Plus provides an operating time of approximately 3.3 hours, and extends to 6 hours with an external WB37 battery. It also supports battery hot-swapping to improve creative efficiency. On top of the classic flight control interface, the new DJI Pilot 2 app for Inspire adds a cinema-grade monitoring interface, which allows simple and convenient checking of information like camera exposure, video specifications, focal length, and gimbal angle, easily meeting the monitoring requirements of gimbal operators and DPs.

    Storage: The included DJI PROSSD 1TB supports a max read speed of 900MBps for recording high-frame-rate videos of 8K CinemaDNG, and the footage can be read on a computer directly through the provided USB-C to USB-C cable without the need for a card reader, convenient for DITs.

    Battery: DJI Inspire 3 is equipped with six TB51 intelligent batteries and an all-new battery charging hub. TB51 batteries utilize the latest battery chemistry technology for optimized reliability and performance, and are smaller, lighter, more streamlined, and higher voltage compared to TB50. They provide a 28-minute max flight time and support hot swapping. The all-new foldable battery charging hub can accommodate eight batteries. In Fast mode, it can charge two batteries to 90% in just 35 minutes and eight batteries to 100% in only 160 minutes. The included 65W USB-C port can also be used to charge an RC Plus.

    Measured using the included USB-C to USB-C data cable with an Apple MacBook Pro 2021 (Apple M1 Max chip). Measured when flying forward at a constant speed of 36 kph with the landing gear down in a windless environment at sea level, with gimbal camera and lens attached to the aircraft and without other accessories, and recording 4K/24fps H.264 (S35) video until the battery reached 0%.
