JI's Zenmuse X7 claims superior image quality,
boasts interchangeable lenses, and offers a new
color system to deliver complete creative freedom.
A world leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging
technology, DJI is introducing the Zenmuse X7, as the
world's first Super 35 digital film camera optimized
for professional aerial cinematography. Designed
to work seamlessly with the DJI Inspire 2 drone,
the Zenmuse X7 delivers superior image quality,
interchangeable lenses, and a new DJI Cinema Color
System for post-production to give film and video
professionals more creative freedom.
"The Zenmuse X7 offers everything professional
content creators need to make their aerial footage
as stunning and vivid as they demand," said Paul
Pan, Senior Product Manager at DJI. "From the large
Super 35 sensor to a new mount, lenses, and color
system, the Zenmuse X7 gives cinematographers
and professional photographers an unmatched set
of tools that work seamlessly with the DJI Inspire 2
drone to capture high-quality footage that is easily
integrated into projects shot with industry-leading
handheld cameras."
Greater expressive freedom
The Zenmuse X7 is equipped with a Super 35 video
sensor featuring 14 stops of dynamic range for more
detail in low-light conditions. Its low-noise image
capture enhances grading flexibility by preserving
details in both highlight and dark areas while
enabling a shallow cinematic depth of field.
To meet the rigorous requirements of filmmakers
and television production professionals, the Zenmuse
X7 captures the highest image resolutions ever for
an integrated drone camera. It is capable of shooting
6K CinemaDNG RAW or 5.2K Apple ProRes at up to 30
frames per second, as well as 3.9K CinemaDNG RAW
or 2.7K ProRes at up to 59.94 frames per second to
integrate seamlessly into industry-standard postproduction workflows.
Enhanced imaging potential
The Zenmuse X7 uses a dedicated aerial mount
system, the DJI DL-Mount, featuring an ultra-short
flange focal distance to carry prime lenses optimally.

The camera is
"optimized for
professional aerial
cinematography"

DJI's Zenmuse X7 claims
superior image quality

Available with focal lengths of 16mm, 24mm, 35mm,
and 50mm, each lens has a maximum aperture of
F/2.8 and is crafted out of carbon fiber, making them
durable and lightweight for high-performance aerial
cinematography with the DJI Inspire 2 drone.
To allow for advanced setting adjustment and finetuning, the 16mm lens is equipped with a built-in ND
4 filter, and the 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm lenses
feature a mechanical shutter.
Post-production flexibility
DJI has also introduced a new DJI Cinema Color
System (DCCS) making the Zenmuse X7 an asset on
every film set for movies, TV series, commercials,
documentaries, and more.
"For the Zenmuse X7, we took our color science
to the next level," continued Pan. "We consulted
the world leading authorities in color science,
Technicolor. With their guidance, our engineers
developed an optimized curve for the X7 allowing
more latitude without sacrificing image quality."
DCCS features a new D-Log Curve and D-Gamut RGB
color space to give more flexibility
and color options during the postproduction process. The D-Log
further extends the dynamic range,
while the D-Gamut RGB color space
preserves more color information
to support the most demanding
filmmaking scenarios, providing
accurate color for quick and easy
post-processing.
The new EI Mode mimics the
way a film camera works to help
cinematographers capture as
much information as possible in
every scene while balancing the
dynamic range and noise with

different log curves for more flexibility during the
post-production process.
