The Zenmuse X3 Gimbal and Camera Unit from DJI features the same 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal that is included with ready-to-fly versions of the Inspire 1 quadcopter. It can be used with Inspire 1 – mounting toolessly – or works with the Osmo Handle Kit. The Osmo Handle Kit is a separately available handgrip that converts the Gimbal and Camera Unit into a stabilized handheld camera system for use closer to the ground. The gimbal and camera both power from the aircraft flight battery or from a battery that goes with the Handle Kit.
Inspire 1 4K Camera
The Inspire 1 Camera shoots 4K video at 24p and 30p, and can shoot HD video frame rates from 24p to 60p. It features a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor with a 94-degree field of view (FOV) lens. This field of view works out to about 20mm in 35mm equivalent, which gives you a wide but not extremely wide or fisheye framing - while not as immersive as a fisheye, this FOV features less distortion and gives the subject more emphasis
3-Axis Brushless Motor Gimbal
The camera is mounted via an integrated 3-axis gimbal which uses brushless servo motors to keep the shot stable and the horizon level. The camera pans a full 360-degrees so that no matter which way the quadcopter turns, the camera can remain locked on the subject. Manual panning and tilting can be affected using controls on the transmitter
