The DJI Zenmuse X7 camera is a compact Super 35 camera with an integrated gimbal made for high-end filmmaking that delivers stunning resolution and image quality. Its compatibility with the Inspire 2 offers the best in next-level professional aerial cinematography. A 24 MP CMOS sensor rated at 14 stops of dynamic range preserves astonishing detail and offers both 6K CinemaDNG and 5.2K Apple ProRes* with support for continuous RAW burst shooting at 20 fps and 24 MP stills.
The X7 also introduces the DL-Mount, the world’s first integrated aerial lens mount that allows switching between four available prime lenses quickly. For seamless editing, a new DJI Cinema Color System preserves accurate colors for easier post-processing. These latest innovations allow filmmakers to reach new heights and capture scenes as they imagine them with the DJI Zenmuse X7 camera.

The DJI Zenmuse X7 Camera Is Engineered for Excellence
The X7 uses a Super 35 sensor, and its high readout speed supports RAW output at 6K/30 fps and 3.9K/59.94 fps. The pixel size reaches 3.91 µm and the diagonal length of the sensor is 26.6 mm when recording. A sensor this size offers a higher sensitivity to light and 14 stops of dynamic range — much wider than the 12.8 stops featured on the Zenmuse X5S. Furthermore, the SNR of the X7 is 46 dB, 8 dB higher than the X5S, and the tonal range is as high as 9.41 bits. All of these features offer unlimited creative options for a better workflow in the most demanding situations on set.

The DJI Zenmuse X7 camera features DJI’s very own DL-mount, a short 17mm flange distance mount designed specifically for aerial use. Such a compact mount means that the DJI Zenmuse X7 camera weighs only about 630g with a lens mounted. Together, the X7 and Inspire 2 weigh around just 4 kg with the ability to capture the same challenging shots as more heavy-duty setups weighing up to 40 kg. The official lenses (at the time of writing) can be found below.
- DL-S 16mm F2.8 ND ASPH
- DL 24mm F2.8 LS ASPH
- DL 35mm F2.8 LS ASPH
- DL 50mm F2.8 LS ASPH
Lossless Cinema RAW 6K 6016×3200/5760×3240 recording at 30 fps
When mounted to the Inspire 2 drone, the DJI Zenmuse X7 camera can record lossless Cinema RAW videos at insane bitrates in either 6K, 4.7Gbps, 12-bit video at up to 29.97p; or 3.9K CinemaDNG, 12-bit video at 59.94p. The massive bitrates keep original data intact, giving you complete control to edit every single frame in post as a RAW file. Recording can be done at aspect ratio’s of 17:9, 16:9, or 2.44:1
14 stops of dynamic range
The new DJI Zenmuse X7 camera’s larger sensor provides a wide dynamic range of 14 stops. This means that the camera can record more shades of colours and will capture more detail in bright highlights and dark shadows before blowing colours out.
Exceptional low light performance
Exceptional low light video recording is made possible by a large Super 35 sensor’s light sensitivity of ISO 100-25600. This enables capturing low light scenes such as nightscapes with little to no noise
CineCore 2.1 processing engine with El mode
A brand new EI Mode has been integrated into the CineCore 2.1 processing engine. This mode can record high-quality footage at various levels of sensitivity while reducing image artifacts and noise, preserving more details while adopting an improved dark level correction system for pro-level cinematic images. Apart from improved image processing performance, CineCore 2.1 also features a new color system, giving professional filmmakers more creative flexibility in post-production.
24-megapixel camera with RAW image capture
TheDJI Zenmuse X7 camera features a picture resolution of 24 megapixels and an amazing image ISO range of ISO 100 – 25600. The camera can also capture 12-bit RAW images for even greater image control during post-production.
3-axis stabilizing gimbal
A new 3-axis gimbal stabilizes the camera of the Zenmuse X7. The new gimbal has been highly optimized to support the new camera and lens and has a pinpoint-precise motor rotation with a control accuracy of ±0.01° that is powered by a dedicated processor.
20 fps DNG RAW burst
When used with a DJI CINESSD, the DJI Zenmuse X7 camera can capture 24-megapixel DNG RAW stills at a fast continuous rate of 20 frames per second. When using only a microSD card, 24MP DNG stills can be captured at 14fps.
