Olympus 25mm f1.8 Lens on DJI Inspire Pro

One of the big advantages of the DJI Inspire Pro is the ability to change your lens. I recently purchased the Olympus 25mm f1.8 Lens and have been playing with it on our DJI Inspire Pro. I am working on a rock climbing film project at the moment and the big advantage of the 25mm lens is that I can get much closer into the action without having to fly perilously close to the climbers that I am filming.

First impressions are good but I do have a word of warning – see below. The lens provides high quality optics as you would expect from Olympus, appears to be well built and does everything that I would want it to do on our Inspire Pro. Heres a screenshot from my first test flight:

I do have a word of caution though and hence the reason for the blog post. When using the Olympus 25mm f1.8 Lens on DJI Inspire Pro in high winds it does seem to be much more prone to vibration. Heres a screen shot taken whilst filming in wind speeds of around 15mph:


When playing back the video the footage is unusable. I didn’t have a balancing weight fitted as DJI say that it is not necessary – I will have a play around with one next time and see if it improves the situation.

Here is a further screen shot from my DJI MFT 15mm f/1.7 ASPH lens with the balancing weight fitted in the same wind conditions:


The image is much cleaner and the footage is as smooth as you would expect. I will try and get some footage uploaded to YouTube of the two film clips so that people can compare video rather than just stills – I have a few projects chewing up my Broadband at the moment which isn’t great to begin with living in the mountains!

Be great to hear from anyone else who experiences anything similar.
