DJI, one of the world’s leaders in creative camera technology, has updated its Zenmuse X7 camera to support the new ProRes RAW standard from Apple.
Enabled through firmware updates, the Zenmuse X7 also gains performance enhancements that deliver improved workflows and image quality.
These new features increase the power and efficiency of the Zenmuse X7 and reinforce its role in professional filmmaking as the world’s first Super35 digital camera designed for aerial cinematography.
The firmware updates include a free update for users with the RAW activation package for Inspire 2 and newly added 14-bit RAW recording mode to enable the Zenmuse X7 to capture cleaner scenes with less noise, delivering smoother tones and color transitions while preserving significant detail in both shadows and highlights.
The update also features enhanced data processing performance in order to make the Zenmuse X7 more nimble and capable with improvements to its file system and broader operating system compatibility.
“We are thrilled that the Zenmuse X7 has become the first aerial camera to support Apple’s new ProRes RAW standard,” said Paul Pan, senior product manager at DJI.
“Paired with the workflow and imaging improvements announced today, the Zenmuse X7 camera and Inspire 2 drone continue to be an unmatched platform for the most demanding projects in aerial cinematography.”
