Product Profile
Overview
The Zenmuse X5 offers advanced photographers a high-performance, robust gimbal and
camera system with an M4/3 interchangeable lens. The Type 4/3 CMOS sensor supports
video recording in 4K and 16MP still photos. It can be mounted onto designated DJI devices
such as the Inspire 1.
The Zenmuse X5 lens kit comes with the DJI MFT 15mm f/1.7 ASPH that provides a 72 degree
field of view and a manually adjustable f/1.7-f/16 aperture range. The camera can shoot burst,
AEB or time-lapse in JPEG and DNG RAW, and output video in MP4 and MOV formats. Live
HD video from the camera can be viewed on your mobile device through the DJI GO app .
The 3-axis gimbal provides an incredibly stable platform for the camera to capture clear shots
even during high speed maneuvers. The gimbal tilts the camera across a -90° to +30° pitch
angle and pans a full 360 degrees, independent of its carrier’s movement.

The Balancing Ring must be installed on the camera lens when a filter is not used.
Supported Micro SD Cards
The Zenmuse X5 comes with a 16GB Micro SD card, but also supports Micro SD cards with a
capacity of up to 64GB. We recommend using a UHS-1 Micro SD card to minimize the delay
when reading and writing high resolution video data.
DO NOT remove the Micro SD card from the Zenmuse X5 when it is powered on.
Installing the Camera Lens
The following steps use the DJI MFT 15mm f/1.7 ASPH as illustration of how to mount the
camera lens to the camera body. Be sure to power off the battery before installation.
1. Remove the camera body cap.
2. While holding down the Lens Release Button, rotate the Lens Lock clockwise to unlock it.
3. Remove the lens cap and rear cap.

To remove the camera lens, power off the battery and then:
1. While holding down the Lens Release Button, rotate the Lens Lock clockwise to unlock it.
2. While holding down the Lens Release Button, rotate the camera lens counterclockwise to
detach it.
Lens Release Button
It is recommended to wrap a dust cover around the lens to prevent contamination.
DJI produces dedicated dust covers for the DJI MFT 15mm f/1.7 ASPH and the
Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH. Other lenses may require
you to purchase a third-party dust cover.
It is important to tighten the Lens Lock after attaching the camera lens, as this can
reduce the vibrations of the lens when the aircraft is moving in flight. Always loosen
the Lens Lock before attaching and detaching the camera lens.
A filter can be installed in place of the Camera Balancing Ring. Remember to use a
filter that fulfills the weight requirement.
Some lenses must not be used with a lens hood. Be sure to check the table above
for accessory requirements for your lens.
Be sure to set the lens to AF mode.
Always hold down the Lens Release Button before rotating the Lens Lock to unlock it.
