DJI unveils new high-quality drone camera

  • DJI's 6K drone camera is designed to make movies

Created to work with the DJI Inspire 2 drone the Zenmuse X7 uses interchangeable lenses and also has a new DJI Cinema Color System for post production. Its large sensor lets you shoot 6K RAW video (in CinemaDNG format) with 14 stops of dynamic range, promising crisp, editing-ready video with plenty of detail in low light.

Using DJI's proprietary DL-mount system, the Zenmuse X7 is designed for use with the Inspire 2 drone.

The X7 has relied on a dedicated mount system that's built for carrying prime quality lenses. The four lenses now available have maximum apertures of f/2.8 with focal lengths at 16mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm. That's impressive and very smart to keep the weight down.

DJI has worked with Technicolor to improve its color science for the Zenmuse 7.

"With their guidance, our engineers developed an optimized curve for the X7 allowing more latitude without sacrificing image quality". There is also a new D-Gamut RGB color space that the camera records in for a wider color range. These two modes should gel well with most professional production workflow out there. The whole Zenmuse X7 gimbal system weighs just 631 grams with the 16 mm lens attached.
