ikopta Drone UAV Equipment

Many people are asking what Drone UAV equipment Ikopta use to achieve the amazing images we do. In answer, here is the main kit list that hits most of the jobs we do.

Remember it’s not just the Drone UAV equipment you use, it’s the imagination & ingenuity you bring to the party.

The DJI Inspire 1 PRO:

ikopta’s DJI Inspire 1 Pro on set.

This is the Updated DJI Inspire 1 Drone UAV Craft from DJI. The new propeller and installation kits feature a smoother, even more reliable locking mechanism, making it idea for fast set up and breakdown on location shooting.
The new motor’s performance has also been improved, providing a greater sense of control. When you combine it with a second controller for camera control, the DJI Inspire platform is hard to beat.

I love the live, wireless HD video transmission via DJI Lightbridge to you the tablet of secondary display, allowing DOP’s/Directors/clients to see in realtime the shots develop and add creative input.
The Vision Positioning system (VPS) on the Drone UAV for GPS-free or indoor flight options make it the perfect camera platform, perfect for high level shoots and professional sets.

The DJI  Drone UAV X5 Camera System:

Meet the Zenmuse X5, the world’s first mirrorless, compact Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography
and cinematography.

Designed to work with the DJI Inspire 1 ready-to-fly platform, the Zenmuse X5 packs a powerful sensor
that’s capable of recording 4K videos at up to 30 fps and capturing still images at 16MP.

Equipped with the standard MFT interchangeable lens mount and allowing full wireless remote control over focus, aperture, and more, the Zenmuse X5 lets you shoot the way you want.

Shooting with the Zenmuse X5’s M4/3 sensor results in images that are crisper and more detailed than any previous aerial camera. Built inside the Zenmuse X5 is a powerful Micro Four Thirds sensor that’s absolutely revolutionary for an aerial camera.

With a sensor eight times the size of that in the previous X3 camera, this new MFT sensor enables high quality image recording at ISO range of 100-25600.

Despite its compact size, the Zenmuse X5 is a powerful video camera. It is capable of recording 4K (3840 x 2160) at up to 30 fps, 2.7K (2704×1520) at up to 30 fps, and Full HD (1920 x 1080) at up to 60 fps in MP4/MOV format. The Zenmuse X5 enables you to record professional-level footage with stunning clarity and detail.

Drone UAV Camera Specifics:

A higher speed signal readout suppresses the rolling shutter effect, resulting in beautiful footage even when flying at high speeds. The Zenmuse X5 also comes equipped with convenient features such as Zebra Pattern and Focus Peaking making it a camera that’s truly fit for any job.

Thanks to DJI’s expertise in stabilisation systems, the Zenmuse X5 is equipped with a highly reliable 3-axis gimbal that stabilises your camera in flight. The gimbal constantly communicates with the aircraft, and quickly compensates for every minor movement.

With a precision accuracy of 0.02°, the Zenmuse X5 produces silky smooth footage and sharp photos even with long exposure no matter how you fly.

As the world’s first Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography and videography, the Zenmuse X5 gives you the freedom to choose your lens.

Utilising the standard MFT mount the Zenmuse X5 is well positioned to benefit from new products and innovations from major lens manufacturers.
Currently, a range of lenses are compatible with the Zenmuse X5. With different specifications but the same top-notch quality, these three lenses provide you with the flexibility on set.
