DJI Mavic 2 Rumors & Leaks!

The DJI Mavic 2 or also known as the Mavic Pro 2 has been leaked. Once the rumor mills start, they just don’t seem to stop. Everything we know about the Mavic 2 is below. DJI Mavic 2 formerly expected to be called DJI Mavic Pro 2 Mavic 2  – The Compact Phantom we’ve dreamed of?  Update 3: Mavic Enterprise images leaked Further images of the new Mavic from DJI have surfaced. This time it’s not the Mavic 2 however but a Mavic Enterprise Edition.   Update 2: DJI pushes launch of Mavic 2 We have just received word that DJI has delayed the originally planned July 18th “See the bigger picture” event. No new date has been set at the time of this writing. Parti Update: New Drone release confirmed! A new DJI Mavic 2 (Pro 2) is coming! DJI sent out invitations to a media event for a July 18th event at 10am New York (EST) time. The original DJI Mavic revolutionized the drone market with its release. Up until that point you had to carry a large phantom sized drone with you if you wanted decent videos and photos from the air. While we got used to constantly having an extra cooler box, errrm the Phantom 4 box as a piece of luggage in the car, the compact Mavic Platform changed that. The Rumor-mills have been in high gear regarding this July 18th event. As we have seen many leaked images of a much anticipated Phantom 5 with its removable camera lenses, there is a small possibility that we are in fact getting a P5 instead of a Mavic 2. Yet when one studies the image of the invitation there is an obvious theme presented. “See the bigger picture” the invitation of the DJI drone release event reads. In the background you find an image that is made up of a “little big planet” style photograph. It also resembles an iris in a human eye. This surely is a hint towards an increased sensor size of the DJI Mavic 2. What we are expecting to arrive: DJI Mavic 2 Specs: 12 MP Sony IMX226 CMOS 1/1.7″ STARVIS sensor compared to current Mavic Pros 1/2.3” CMOS sensor) 4K at 60fps (H265) 100mbps increased video bandwidth Sensor improvements allow for: Improved low light performance Increased dynamic range Lower noise in images at same ISO Lens: f/2.8 – f/11 Redesigned 3 Axis Gimbal Camera: The individual pixels size will be comparable to the Phantom 4 Pro’s (also the V2’s). The increase in the sensor size from a 1/2.3” to the 1/1.7” sensor while keeping the total number of pixels at...

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....
