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.
