The X7 shots blend seamlessly with cinema camera footage.

Last week, DJI unveiled the revolutionary Zenmuse X7, a first-of-its-kind cinema grade Super 35mm camera designed specifically for aerial cinematography. Today, we go behind the scenes with DJI and the making of the movie Riders. The goal of the project was to challenge the visual quality of the Zenmuse X7 by using it in production alongside a high-end cinema camera.

As the final product below shows, the integration was virtually seamless.

Creative director Ferdinand Wolf describes in the BTS video how the Super 35mm sensor provided beautifully shallow depth of field and high dynamic range even in challenging low-light situations. For smaller sensors, shooting in low light at ISO 1600 can produce noisy images but, as Wolf states in the video, the team at DJI was able to produce clean, sharp images shooting in low light at ISO 1600 at f/2.8.

DJI is now a camera company, and we should probably pay attention

When most people think of DJI, they think of drones – Phantoms, Mavics, and Sparks. Some may also know DJI for camera stabilization systems and gimbals, but it’s fair to say that most people probably think of DJI as a drone company.

Starting this week, DJI is also a camera company.

At an event in Hollywood, the company introduced its new Zenmuse X7 cinema camera, which includes some very impressive features including 6K Raw video. (You can find the full rundown of specs in our news story.) It’s a camera aimed primarily at the high-end motion picture market, but it sheds some light on DJI’s approach to the camera industry.

Part of what makes this interesting is the astounding rate at which DJI has been innovating over the past few years. I’m not suggesting that other companies haven’t innovated, but let’s be honest – at times the camera market can feel a little bit predictable.

“Starting this week, DJI is also a camera company.”

What sets DJI apart is that it seems to consistently push boundaries to create inventive products, which sometimes even surprise us a bit, as well as the rate at which they appear to be doing it. In fact, at the launch event for the X7 I felt a genuine sense of excitement about the new camera, not just from DJI employees but from those in attendance.

Although the X7 is undeniably aimed at cinematographers, it presents opportunities for photographers as well. It also illustrates that DJI is prepared to make its own imaging products if the company thinks it can build a better mousetrap than what’s currently out there.

DJI Zenmuse X7 is the first Super 35mm camera designed for aerial work

By noreply@redsharknews.com (Andy Stout)

Initially only available for the Inspire 2, the X7 will eventually be rolled out to other DJI platforms

DJI’s purchase of Hasselblad earlier this year was an indication that it was as serious about the optical side of its business as about its aerial platforms and the new 6K $2700 Zenmuse X7 is proof.

    By Randall Esulto

    The Zenmuse X7 Captures the highest image resolutions ever for an integrated drone camera.

    Lately, the rumor mill has been buzzing with theory and speculation as to what DJI’s new announcement would be. The mystery ended this evening when DJI announced the world’s first Super 35mm digital camera designed for professional aerial cinematographers to use seamlessly with the DJI Inspire 2 drone. In its announcement, DJI heralded the arrival of the Zenmuse X7 which boasts up to 6K video recording at 30fps, a Super 35mm sensor, compatibility with 4 DL-Mount lenses (16mm, 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm), and a brand new DJI Cinema Color System to allow for greater freedom in post-production.

    The Zenmuse X7 integrates with the CineCore 2.1 Image Processing System. It is currently only compatible with the Inspire 2 platform though DJI promises future compatibility with other products. The Zenmuse X7 is the highest resolution camera in the DJI / Zenmuse catalog and offers filmmakers cinematic image resolution and quality that previously required larger airframes capable of lifting larger, heavier cameras.
