New DJI DL-Mount Details
The new DJI DL-Mount makes changing lenses a breeze.
FSI-Cu technology has been used to create a thinner interconnection. In practice, this means a compact lens mount without sacrificing any image quality.
The new DL-Mount system has a flange focal distance of less than 17mm - about 1/3 of the size of a PL-Mount.
The addition of this new mount has allowed DJI to save weight.
The X7 weighs just 630g with a lens. When you're flying with the Inspire 2 the total weight will be around 4kg.
Historically this level of detail and range of operation would have required much more expensive equipment.
Formats and Codecs on the X7 Camera
To give you total flexibility, the DJI Zenmuse X7 supports a wide array of codecs, resolutions and frame rates.
The CineCore image processing unit that we first saw being used when the Inspire 2 came out, has now been upgraded to version 2.1.
This adds the ability to shoot in 6K in CinemaDNG and 5.2k in Apple ProRes.
A new Rl mode has also been added. This can record high-quality footage at various sensitivity levels.
There have been upgrades to the noise and artefacts reduction systems.
In addition, there has been a new colour system added to the processing unit.
All of these updates and improvements means that CineCore 2.1 will give you total flexibility when it comes to both shooting and post-production.
