DJI ZENMUSE X5S camera for inspire 2 drone 5.2K video support for high-end professional filmmaking Brand new original in stock
1.How is the Zenmuse X5S different from Zenmuse X4S?
While both cameras capture 20 megapixel photos, the X4S features a 1-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor and a fixed prime lens specially designed to fit the sensor and the imaging engine. Additionally, the X4S captures 4K video in the H.264 and H.265 formats.
The Zenmuse X5S features a M4/3 sensor and an interchangeable lens mount for M4/3 lenses. Combined with the Inspire 2’s internal CineCore 2.0 image processing system, the Zenmuse X5S can capture video H.264 and H.265 formats as well as CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes and is suitable for a wide range of professional filmmaking and television production applications.
2.How is the Zenmuse X5S different from the Zenmuse X5R?
The Zenmuse X5R was DJI’s first M4/3 camera dedicated to aerial photography. With a 16-megapixel sensor it is capable of recording 4K/30 in CinemaDNG RAW at an average bitrate of 1.7Gbps. The Zenmuse X5S is a major upgrade over this camera. New features include:
a. A new quick-release connector to connect the Inspire 2 and the Zenmuse X5S. As it has been separated from its image processing system, the camera sensor is protected from magnetic interference and thermal noise.
b. An uprated 20.8-megapixel sensor has a better signal to noise ratio and improved color sensitivity. Working with advanced oversampling technology, it creates clear, low noise images.
c. When used with the CineCore 2.0 image processing system on the Inspire 2, the Zenmuse X5S is able to record 4k/30 oversampling video in both H.264 and H.265 codecs, with a maximum bitrate of 100Mbps. When DJI Inspire 2 License Keys are used and the DJI CINESSD is equipped, the Zenmuse X5S can record 5.2K/30 or 4K/60 video in CinemaDNG, 5.2K/30 in Apple ProRes 422 HQ, and 4K/30 in Apple ProRes 4444 XQ video (no alpha). When shooting at 5.2K, the Zenmuse X5S has a maximum bitrate of 4.2Gbps.
3.Can I use the Zenmuse X5S separately as a stand-alone camera?
No. The Zenmuse X5S must be used with the Inspire 2. It will be supported on additional products in future.
