Equipped with an uprated Micro 4/3
sensor, the Zenmuse X5S has a dynamic range of 12.8 stops with a much
improved signal to noise ratio and color sensitivity than the X5R. It
supports up to eight standard M4/3 lenses (including zoom lenses) with
focal lengths ranging from 9mm-45mm (equivalent to 18mm-90mm on a 35mm
camera), allowing more creative flexibility.
CineCore 2.0 image processing system on the Inspire 2
makes the Zenmuse X5S capable of capturing 5.2K 30fps
CinemaDNG video and Apple ProRes video* as well as 4K 60fps using H.264
and 4K 30fps
using H.265 (both at 100Mbps). Continuous DNG burst
shooting at 20fps with 20.8MP images is also supported. The Zenmuse X5S

INSPIRE 2 AERIAL IMAGING
Compared with the Inspire 1, the Inspire 2 utilizes an
innovative structure that separates the CineCore 2.0 image processing
system from the camera and places it inside the aircraft. This means
that the sensor and optical system are detachable and easily connected
using a newly designed quick-release connector. Designing the camera
system in this way effectively protects the sensor from magnetic
interference originating from the processor. It also allows a range of
lightweight camera units to be connected as required by different
scenes. The uprated M4/3 sensor — and support for interchangeable lenses
— allows the Zenmuse X5S to capture high resolution images of
incredibly high quality, when combined with the extraordinary CineCore
2.0 image processing system.
IMPROVED MICRO 4/3 SENSOR
The onboard Micro 4/3 sensor has been upgraded, significantly
improving image quality. With a pixel size of 3.4μm, this
20.8-megapixel sensor captures more detail than the previous sensor. It
has 12.8 stops of dynamic range as well as a better signal to noise
ratio and color sensitivity than the X5R, allowing it to create clear,
low noise images in low light environments.
ARRAY OF COMPATIBLE LENSES
Since it uses a standard Micro
4/3 mount, the Zenmuse X5S now supports up to eight professional lenses*
with focal lengths ranging from 9mm-45mm (equivalent to 18mm-90mm on a
35mm camera), providing more creative control over the final look of a

Using CineCore 2.0, the Zenmuse X5S records video at a maximum resolution of 5.2K/30fps in CinemaDNG 12bit
1, 5.2K 30fps Apple ProRes 422 HQ and 4K 30fps Apple ProRes 4444 XQ (no alpha) 2.
Additional recording options
include video in 4K/60fps using H.264 or oversampling video in 4K/30fps
using H.264/H.265, both with a bitrate of 100Mbps.

FAST, EFFICIENT WORKFLOWS
The DJI CINESSD card (PCIe3.0 NVMe SSD support) and a highly
optimized FAT32/exFAT file system, allows Zenmuse X5S footage to be
transferred directly through the DJI CINESSD STATION card reader to a
computer at high speeds without any additional software. Footage also
supports the DIT standard. CinemaDNG or Apple ProRes workflows can be
used for post-processing.
LOSSLESS IN-VIDEO SINGLE AND BURST PHOTO CAPTURE
Using only the Micro SD card, 20.8MP stills can be captured
at 14fps in Burst Mode in JPEG+DNG. Using the DJI CINESSD opens up 20fps
continuous DNG Burst Mode with a maximum image resolution of 20.8
megapixels. Stills can also be taken during video recording without
ENHANCED CAMERA STABILIZATION
Stabilizing the Zenmuse X5S is a
highly optimized 3-axis gimbal with pinpoint-precise motor rotation with
a control accuracy of ±0.01° powered by a dedicated processor.Rather
than rely on electrical slip rings — as is common with many gimbals —
the Zenmuse X5S uses a unique mechanically limited design and c oncealed
wires to ensuremore stable data transmission and greater durability.
Vibration is eliminated using
three damping balls and a lightweight damping board, creating seamlessly
smooth video. 360° rotation remains possible through gimbal rotation
and smooth aircraft yaw. Stable, smooth footage
