UPDATE 1: Looks like DJI have added the FAQ regarding the performance changes in the next battery back on the site ( maybe they read this, hello DJI 🙂 ). So it really does look like there will be some battery use optimization coming soon. I hear that its gets about 20% performance increase bringing the run time towards the 60 minutes advertised originally but under delivered in the final product.
There are some other interesting items in the FAQ too. The one about a bigger battery gets a simple answer;
Also I always wondered why the rosette mount got hot, turns out its a heatsink ( that uses the phone mount too ).
Being an eagle eyed person that I am, today I noticed DJI updated then removed an FAQ on their Osmo webpage. Nothing too interesting I hear you say.. But look what it said.
The FAQ first appeared with the following quotation and answer.
If I change the Osmo’s camera to the Zenmuse X5 or the Zenmuse X5R, will the maximum operating time of the Osmo be affected?
Yes, but we are in the process of developing a new firmware for extending the operating time of the Osmo when using the Zenmuse X5/Zenmuse X5R.
Soon after the entire section was removed.. I know many have moaned about the battery life so maybe this is a clue that the next firmware will include some performance increase in the battery 🙂
