DJI Zenmuse X7: The First Super 35mm Camera for Aerial Cinematography

DJI Zenmuse X7: The First Super 35mm Camera for Aerial Cinematography”

It is expected that DJI will soon announce the new Zenmuse X7, a 6K cinematic camera expanding its existing Zenmuse drone camera lineup. A Super 35 mm effective sensor size for video recording can shoot 6K CinemaDNG and 5.2K Apple ProRes at up to 30 FPS, as well as 3.9K CinemaDNG and 2.7K ProRes at up to 59.94 FPS (narrow FOV). To put that into perspective, the majority of high-end drones available capture video at a maximum resolution of 4K - the same quality as most high-end TVs.

The Chinese firm promises a Super 35mm video sensor with 14 stops of dynamic range.

We caught up with DJI's André Becker to hear more about their new creation which was created to work seamlessly with DJI's Inspire 2 drone.

The X7 is available with four carbon fibre-bodied lenses, in 16mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm focal lengths, reports Fstoppers, all of which come with maximum apertures of f/2.8.

The Zenmuse X7 uses a dedicated aerial mount system, the DJI DL-Mount, featuring an ultra-short flange focal distance to carry prime lenses optimally.

You can expect to pay $2,699 (£2,000) for the base model X7 lens. Upon launch, at least, the Zenmuse X7 will be made available on the Inspire drone, but the sources state that the camera may be available on cheaper drones at some point in the future.

Thankfully, shipping is included in the price. The 16mm lens has an ND 4 filter, while all the other lenses tout mechanical shutters. "We consulted the world leading authorities in color science, Technicolor".

Additionally, DJI is also introducing the DJI Cinema Colour System (DCCS) with improved D-Log gamma curve and D-Gamut RGB.

There's also a new EI Mode that mimics the way a film camera works, helping cinematographers to "capture as much information as possible" in each scene, while balancing dynamic range with noise.

New D-Log Curve and D-Gamut RGB profiles. The DJI Inspire 2 has a flight time of up to 23 minutes with the Zenmuse X7.

The Zenmuse X7 camera is priced at $2,699 United States dollars. There's also a combo including the camera body (with its integrated gimbal) and all the lenses for $4,299, with retail availability beginning in November for all of the above. DJI has today unveiled a new Zenmsue camera, the X7, that is, in simple terms, an absolute monster. DJI's global operations now span across the Americas, Europe and Asia, and its revolutionary products and solutions have been chosen by customers in over 100 countries for applications in filmmaking, construction, emergency response, agriculture, conservation and many other industries.
