The Zenmuse X5S camera is designed to keep pace with the precision and accuracy required for high-end filmmaking and professional aerial imaging. The advanced design includes an uprated micro 4/3 sensor, and 12.8 range stops for improved color sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio. It supports interchangeable lenses including zoom and focal length ranging from 9mm to 45mm, delivering full creative control. The new CineCore 2.0 image processing system captures 5.2K at 30 frames per second in Apple ProRes and CinemaDNG video for beautifully detailed images. Continuous DNG burst mode shoots at 20 frames per second.
The Inspire 2’s enhanced workflow system has the memory card slot and image processing installed in the aircraft, separating them from the camera. Not only is the sensor protected from magnetic interference, but it and the optical system are detachable, allowing a range of lightweight camera units to be connected as needed based on scene dictates. The easy-to-use quick release connector enables rapid equipment swaps. An optimized FAT32/exFAT file system allows direct-to-computer footage transfers with no additional software required. Still images may be taken without video interruption. The 3-axis gimbal has a separate processor and a control accuracy of ±0.01°. A lightweight damping board and three damping balls eliminate vibrations for smooth, continuous 360° footage. The bundle includes a gimbal, camera and lens.
