DJI, a world leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, introduces the Zenmuse X7, 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.”

The Zenmuse X7 is equipped with a Super 35 video sensor featuring 14 stops of dynamic range for more details 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. It is capable of shooting 6K CinemaDNG RAW or 5.2K Apple ProRes at up to 30fps, as well as 3.9K CinemaDNGRAW or 2.7K ProRes at up to 59.94fps to integrate seamlessly into industry-standard post-production workflows.

Allowing for advanced setting adjustment and fine-tuning, the 16mm lens is equipped with a built-in ND 4 filter, and the 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm lenses that feature a mechanical shutter. 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.

It also has the new EI Mode that 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.

The Zenmuse X7 camera is priced at USD 2,699. The 16mm and 35mm lenses will be available for USD 1,299 each, and the 50mm for USD 1,199. Customers can purchase the the Zenmuse X7 prime lens combo including all four lenses for USD 4,299. The Zenmuse X7 will start shipping in early November 2017 from store.dji.com, in DJI Flagship Stores, and through DJI Authorized Dealers worldwide. DJI Care Refresh will be available for the Zenmuse X7 camera gimbal system as well as for the Inspire 2 drone. For more information, visit the DJI website.
