DJI releases the 6K Zenmuse X7

DJI releases the 6K Zenmuse X7

It’s confirmed. The Zenmuse X7 cinema camera is the product being released at the DJI Reflections Event held today. Several leaked images are circulating the web, we have all the info for you below. Earlier last week we reported the teaser video DJI released. Find that video here: DJI Reflections Event Teaser. Pricing information will be available here: Zenmuse X7 Zenmuse X7 (The Zenmuse X7) Lenses The brand new Zenmuse X7 camera and gimbal is designed for professional filmmakers. There is no doubt about it. The Zenmuse X7 boasts up to 6K video recording at 30fps, a 35mm sensor and a compatibility with 4 DL-Mount lenses. The lenses supported: 16mm (built-in ND filter) 24mm (leaf shutter) 35mm (leaf shutter) and 50mm (leaf shutter) Comparison to the existing X5S The sensor size of the x7 allows an increased resolution and pixel size delivering higher quality images.   The X7 is the highest resolution camera in the DJI catalog, and shrinks the requirements in terms of aircraft when requiring such high-resolution footage. Where earlier you required a matrice or Spreading Wings platform you can now utilize drones such as the Inspire 2. The Zenmuse X7 integrates with CineCore 2.1, so currently it is only compatible with the Inspire 2. DJI promises future compatibility with other products. Can we say OSMO 2 anyone?! Specs: Super 35mm (23.5 x 15.7 mm) sensor incrased pixel size to 3.91 micrometers DL Lens Mount captures RAW video at up to 6K @30fps or 3.9K @ 59.94fps photos at up to 24MP (Raw DNG) up to 14 stops of dynamic range image processing for Cinema DNG/Apple ProRes in CineCore 2.1 3 Axis Stabilized Gimbal & Camera recording formats Cinema DNG Apple ProRes h.264 h.265 DNG & JPG for still images To make the Zenmuse X7 more stable and compact for aerial shooting DJI integrated a DL lens mount. This shortens the focal distance to only 16.84mm. The DL mount also reduces the size and weight of the camera while keeping the image cinema grade. Initially, the Zenmuse X7 will be compatible with four DL prime lenses. The maximum aperture will be f/2.8. The leaf shutter in the lenses (besides the 16mm) allow for shutter speeds in single shot mode of up to 1/1000s. These are designed to reduce or eliminate rolling shutter completely....

DJI product launch Oct 11th – DJI Reflections

DJI product launch Oct 11th – DJI Reflections

Well, that came as a surprise. DJI just posted a teaser video for an Oct 11th Event. The video is available below. The teaser shows cinematic shots both from an aerial platform and a land-based system. This could point to a new Osmo 2, a brand new drone which features a camera which you can remove and mount on a stabilizing device such as an Osmo (think gopro Karma but good). We’re fairly certain this product is more in the prosumer if not professional space as the shots in the video are filled with really high-end shots, beautiful bokeh, what you would expect from a professional level camera. The end of the video shows a close-up of a camera lens. Perhaps the Hasselblad partnership has had an impact on a combined product between DJI and Hasselblad. UPDATE: The Zenmuse X7 is confirmed! Details to the Zenmuse X7 on our Zenmuse X7 release page For more check out the DJI Site here. (At the time of publishing this initial article there wasn’t anything to be seen on DJI’s site directly…Yet.)   Subscribe below to not miss out on leaks & rumors regarding this new DJI...
