    DJI Zenmuse X7 Announcement

      News

    DJI has crossed new limits when it comes to both photography and videography. The presented Zenmuse X7 camera has been designed having in mind Inspire 2 drone, which is to enable the highest image quality in this class of equipment. We can also expect that the company will introduce a specially adapted gimbal for this camera.

    The heart of the camera is the Super 35mm sensor, which is supposed to have a wide dynamic range amounting to 14EV, thanks to which the camera will work perfectly in highly contrastive conditions.

    With the use of Zenmuse X7, we will be able to record films in 6K CinemaDNG RAW or 5.2K Apple ProRes with the speed of 30f/s. Apart from that, we will be able to choose either 3.9K CinemaDNG RAW or 2.7K ProRes with the maximum speed of 59.94 f/s.

    On board there is also a new DJI Cinema Color as well as the improved D-Log Curve and D-Gamut RGB, which is to enable more flexibility during further material post production.

    Together with the camera, the producer has also presented four dedicated lenses with the focal length of 16mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm, with f/2.8 aperture.

    These compact and very light lenses are made of carbon fibre. The lens with the focal length of 16mm has been equipped with an inbuilt gray filter. The remaining three models have mechanical shutters.

    DJI Zenmuse X7 and the lenses will be available on sale in November. The camera will cost around $2700 and ach of the fixed lenses: 16mm, 24mm, 35mm – around $1300. The price of the model with the focal length is around $1200.

    One can also buy a set: Zenmuse X7 camera and four lenses. The price for such a set is around $4300.

    If you don’t have Inspire 2 drone, you will have to add around $3000 to the general price, which will amount to around $7300.

      DJI is not giving a break to its rivals since two new drones: Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom have just appeared on the market. A characteristic property of the "Pro" version is a 1" sensor and the "Zoom" model is equipped with the zoom lens with the range of 24-48mm.
       

      1). DJI Mavic 2 Pro
       
      Mavic 2 Pro is equipped with the 20Mp camera, with the 28mm lens and the light of f/2.8, prepared in cooperation with Hasselblad. The camera's aperture can be shut up to the value of f/11. We will also have a 1" CMOS sensor with the ISO ranges of 100 - 6400 or 100 - 12800 in the photography mode. Mavic 2 Pro camera will register films in 4K HDR with the speed of 30f/s, the bit rate of 100Mb/s and it will save them in the 10-bit Dlog-M profile. The films will be saved with the use of HEVC / H.256 codec.
       

      2). DJI Mavic 2 Pro
       
      Mavic 2 Zoom falls slightly behind when it comes to the camera's parameters but, as the very name suggests, its use is a bit different. The "Zoom" model is equipped in a classic way, with the 1/2.3" sensor with the resolution of 12Mp. But it's not the sensor that is the most important thing - the camera's lens has 24-48mm zoom with the light of f/2.8 - 3.8. Thanks to this, we will obtain a much more film-like perspective compression but also, for instance, the dolly zoom effect. The "Zoom" will record films in 4k with the speed of 30f/s and the bit rate of 100Mb/s, but without HDR and 10 bits. A possibility of taking 48Mp photographs is a curiosity - the camera will achieve them thanks to 'gluing' together 9 photographs.
       

      3). DJI Mavic 2 Zoom
       
      New DJI drones fly with the speed of 72km/s and they can remain in air for 31 minutes, making significantly less noise. They are equipped with the most modern omni-directional obstacle-detection system and a modernized tracking system thanks to which the drones will be better at maintaining sharpness of the filmed shots. The drones can now expect in what place and when the filmed object is going to appear from behind an obstacle and maintain it in the center of the frame.
       

      1). DJI Mavic 2 Zoom
       
      The drones are equipped with a wide range of filming modes and pre-programmed camera shots. The producer assures that the live image in Full HD will reach us without interruptions even from 8 kilometers. Both devices have 8GB of in-built memory.
       

      1). DJI Mavic 2 Accessories
       
      DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom are already available and they cost respectively $1449 and $1249. You can pre-order these drones here and here.

      Many of you may not surprised with the fact that DJI presents a new drone every half a year. This time it’s Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, which looks exactly like its predecessor which looked exactly like its predecessor which looked…
       
      Still, Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is significantly different than the previous model – its blades are 60% quieter and the data transmission is handled by OcuSync. The rest is the same as in the predecessor which was the same as...
       

      1). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
       
      The data transmission system Lightbridge, used for instance in Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced, has been replaced by a newer solution, OcuSync HD. OcuSync is supposed to ensure data transmission for a distance of 7km and to automatically choose the band between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. OcuSync can also be connected to DJI Goggles RE.
       

      2). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
       
      As has been mentioned before, most of the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 specification remained unchanged in comparison to its predecessors. The drone is equipped with the 20Mp, 1’’ Exmor R CMOS sensor and a lens, with the focal length equivalent of 24 mm and the light of f/2.8, adapted for the use in aerial photography. The optical system consists of 8 elements placed in 7 groups, among which 2 are aspherical lenses.
       

      3). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
       
      Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 registers videos in 4K with the speed of 60f/s and it uses H.264 codec. The image is recorded with the use of D-Long Cine-D profiles, which enable further modifications of the material. Similarly, the images are saved in Adobe DNG.

      The FlightAutonomy system is yet another thing which won’t be new to the owners of the older DJI drones. Thanks to the system, they will not have to take their new “toy” from the tree or collect its fragments from around the tree. The ActiveTrack system is supposed to ensure that our drone tracks us, or other moving objects, in a way planned in advance by, for instance, making circles around the object.
       

      4). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 - Specification Comparison
       
      People willing to buy DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 will have to pay $1500. The dedicated controller costs $300 and a set consisting of the drone, the controller and DJI Goggles costs $2200.
