DJI Inspire 2 Fulfills Every Cinematography Dreams

The claim that the DJI Inspire 2 is superior to many other models on the market today for professional photography and cinematography, requires solid evidence.

As a professional drone, the DJI Inspire 2 is considered big. It has large 15” props, which lifts the drone easily and converts the 2kg of thrust per motor into movement.

Unlike smaller, fold-up drones that lack features that a cinema camera would have, the DJI Inspire 2 does have cinematic options available,

such as:

  • Interchangeable lenses on a micro 4/3 or APS-C sensor
  • Color profile
  • Options for larger sensors, such as X5S camera can shoot at 5.2K RAW video and the X7 camera can shoot 6K RAW video
  • Wider dynamic range
  • Higher resolution

The DJI Inspire 2 then offers the features of a true cinematography camera.


A wider focal length is very practical for shooting almost anything because in order to get closer to a subject, all that is necessary is to move closer to it. If you want to shoot a wider shot, you just move the drone further away to capture more. The wide lens is great for getting an overview by taking in virtually everything, such as the building, river, people, and the surrounding area. To maintain distance or when desiring a different look, when a long lens enables a person to be much further away to capture a similar shot as the wide lens provided.

Having the ability to fly longer lenses makes it possible for pilots to be more creative when it comes to shooting aerial footage. The DJI Inspire 2 is capable of changing lenses on the fly. With the ability to put on a 45mm lens, 3X optical zooms out of the camera, which provides more detail of a subject.

The 45mm lens is perfect for capturing fine details, like the structure of the building and the people working on it. A feature that is not common for smaller models to achieve, is bringing in the background and providing more depth of the field.

A longer lens enables a person to get close to the subject, whether it is tracking people, animals, nature, cars, boats, etc. The long lenses simply add a different perspective to any aerial footage.

The DJI Inspire 2 also has an extra wide angle camera on the front to assist in piloting the drone, which makes it possible to fly with a long lens and still have a sense of where the drone is located.

The Inspire 2’s aerial maneuvering has shown to be very responsive, and is quite stable, being able to keep position steady in mild gusts of over 10mph.

A cinematographer who wants to get precise shots and doesn’t have the ability to focus on composition, as well as piloting a drone at the same time, will find that the Inspire 2 is ideal since it allows for dual piloting.

The Inspire 2 comes with dual forward obstacle avoidance sensors that can detect objects up to 30m away under normal circumstances, as well as dual infrared upward sensors that can detect up to 5m. Dual downward-facing sonar and terrain detection sensors keep the descent path secure, ensuring stability indoors.

The amazing optics on the Inspire 2 are on the level of cinematic professionals in Hollywood. The flight modes enable aerial videography that has previously been operated by a camera crew on a helicopter, or a mobile ground crew.

Other advancements of technology of the DJI Inspire 2, are heated batteries for cold weather filming, and the multiple content formats in UHD, which enables the professionals to express more fully their creative abilities.


It is clear that the DJI Inspire 2 has made an impressive contribution to the professional drone market. The technological advancements of the DJI Inspire 2 are truly amazing.

Along with so many other improvements, flying with a longer lens is a game-changer. Therefore the drone to buy, is undoubtedly, the DJI Inspire 2.

With the information in this blog, it should be obvious by now, that the DJI Inspire 2 meets that criteria that the DJI Inspire 2 is superior to many other models on the market today for professional photography and cinematography.

This is why it is advertised as “fulfilling every cinematographer’s dream.”
