This is for a dji inspire 1 pro with x5 camera.

I just got dji focus and I'm trying to see if it's possible to control zoom and focus, without having to change modes on the focus controller. Eg. Either zoom mode, focus mode or aperture mode.

My use is for asset inspection to have the camera operator zoom and focus without using the screen.. which is quite a hassle with the 175mm lens.

Also for use with a fixed prime lens to be able to control aperture and focus on the go for cinematic shots.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I know this doesn't answer your question, but my comment may prevent you from spending too much time finding an answer.

It's my understanding that all DJI cameras (including the Inspire 2 offerings) can only adjust the aperture in steps. The inability to rack the aperture pretty much takes all DJI offerings out of the "serious cinematography" race. Just food for thought.

Thanks, yea I know that it's stepped. My main use is for photos but would be nice to play around with the video side of things too.

Cheers

I have recently fitted the focus wheel 2 to my I1 Pro,One click on the lens button changes from focus to aperture, apparently another click to the lens button changes to zoom mode but from my understanding zoom will only work with the Z3 camera, hopefully someone will prove me wrong.
I don’t have a zoom lens so can’t test this at the moment, but it is nice to have fine control with focus, especially on the osmo.

Thanks, from what I've read, the focus wheel 2 isn't compatible with inspire 1 Rc straight out of the box.
Zoom does work on the x5 with 175mm lens.

The I1 Pro V2 has the C type controller, so the canbus has 5.5v at the plug, so the FW2 fits and works.
So which FW are you using to control zoom on the 175mm?

I'm using Dji Focus. The large focus controller with the screen etc.
