Testing the Zenmuse X5S
The testers over at The Digital Circuit take the Zenmuse X5S out for some testing on the DJI Inspire 2. They compare graded vs ungraded footage to show just how much can be done with footage from the X5S.
5.2K RAW Test (Miami Sunrise)
FlyBy Films test out the capabilities of the Zenmuse X5S by shooting a skyline at sunset on the Inspire 2. The footage is beautiful, demonstrating the incredible 12.8 stops of dynamic range offered by the X5S with crisp, clear darks and lights alike.
More About The Zenmuse X5S
The Zenmuse X5S is the successor to the DJI Zenmuse X5 and X5R. Using the same Micro four-thirds design, the X5S has improved dynamic range and moves the solid state drive from the gimbal itself to a remote area on the Inspire 2, allowing for a better balance of the aircraft as well as the ability to use the aircraft's processors instead of housing an internal processing system as on the X5R.
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.
Since it uses a standard Micro 4/3 mount, the X5S supports multiple lens configurations to allow the cinema professional to match footage from their other cameras as well as get exactly the shot they want in the air. It also offers enhanced camera stabilization via it's newly designed gimbal that utilizes a mechanically limited design rather than electrical slip rings as on most gimbal systems.
