A review of the Inspire 2 and Zenmuse X7 from DJI

A review of the Inspire 2 and Zenmuse X7 from DJI

Emmy winner, Graham Sheldon, got his hands on a DJI Inspire 2, a set of Zenmuse X7  gimbal and lenses. Here is what he thinks about the combination that offers you a 24 MP CMOS sensor and 14 stops of dynamic range.

In his review, he notes how much easier the Inspire 2 is to operate and how much faster you are up and running. He notes:

“The big sell for me on this is that it takes five minutes from box open to takeoff. Unbuckle the drone and lens case and in minutes grabbing shots with your favorite two or single person team.”

During their Zenmuse X7 event in Hollywood, CA on October 11, 2017, DJI announced four new prime lenses clearly aimed at the professional photographer or filmmaker. The third lens is a normal DL 50mm F2.8 LS ASPH lens with a leaf shutter, (available in single shot mode) that supports shutter speeds up to 1/1000s and is meant to eliminate rolling shutter effects and banding when shooting in artificial light. Any filter with a diameter of 46 mm that weighs 10-12 grams and is no thicker than 4.4 mm can be used with Zenmuse X7 lenses, according to DJI. When taking stills, the focal length multiplier is 1.5m turning the 50mm lens into a 75mm lens.

Project Vertex introduced at the DJI Zenmuse X7 event in Hollywood, CA

At the end of last night’s Zenmuse X7 event, DJI gave us a sneak preview of what’s to come. It is special DJI software and it is called DJI’s Project Vertex. Where the Zenmuse X7 with the new prime lenses and CineCore 2.1 is supposed to make post-production easier in filmmaking, Project Vertex will make the pre-production process a lot easier by allowing you to model and pre-program your drone flightpath.

Ever since the DJI released the teaser video, rumors have been going around as to what exactly DJI might be releasing at their event tonight. Especially within the various Facebook groups, there was a lot of speculation. Some people thought it would be a GoPro Karma-killer, with a new camera, drone and gimbal all built into one. Others thought it would be just a camera perhaps. Earlier this week, we received some photos and a leaked video clip in which an Inspire Drone was shown with that new camera attached. The video clip ends with “Zenmuse X7“. Today, somebody emailed us with what seemed to be official specs and photos of the new Zenmuse X7 camera and gimbal. And of course, we shared them with you, our readers.
