In this episode:

  • DJI announces new micro 4/3 cameras for the Inspire 1: the X5 series. With a larger sensor, interchangeable lenses, 4k and 4k raw (X5R) video, and 12.8 stops of dynamic range - DJI raises the bar for aerial photography and filmmaking.
     
  • There's a new update for the DJI GO app that now includes waypoints, point of interest, course lock, and home lock modes for the Inspire 1. Also includes follow me mode for the Phantom 3. I talk about my experience using it with my Inspire 1.
     
  • There's a new app from Auto Flight Logic called Autopilot for DJI offering unprecedented automated control of the Inspire 1 and Phantom 3. I take it for a test drive and let you know my thoughts on this remarkable app.
     
  • Fantastic feedback from DCP listeners and new associate producers!
     
  • Video Business Success Coach Kris Simmons answer the question: When do you throw in the towel and move on?
