The Zenmuse X4S is a powerful camera featuring a 20 megapixel 1-inch sensor and a maximum ISO of 12,800. Dynamic range is increased from the Zenmuse X3 by 1 stop, with signal to noise ratio and colour sensitivity increased by 1.5 stops for next-level image quality. The Zenmuse X4S uses a DJI-designed compact lens with low dispersion and low distortion 24mm equivalent prime lens. This 84° FOV, high resolution lens makes the Zenmuse X4S as powerful during aerial imaging as it is on the ground. Combined with CineCore 2.0, the Inspire 2’s powerful image processing system, it can record 4K/60 H.264 and 4K/30 H.265 videos at a 100Mbps bitrate, and oversample 5.2K video into 4Kvideo in real-time, capturing fine image details. In Burst Mode, the Zenmuse X4S supports 14fps shooting at 20 megapixels in both JPEG and DNG formats. It is able to make the difficult balance between agility and image quality.
The Inspire 2 Flying Camera
Compared with the Inspire 1, the Inspire 2 utilizes an innovative structure that separates the CineCore 2.0 image processing system from the camera and places it inside the aircraft. This means that the sensor and optical system are detachable and easily connected using a newly designed quick-release connector. Designing the camera system in this way effectively protects the sensor from magnetic interference originating from the processor. It also allows a range of lightweight camera units to be connected as required by different scenes. The Zenmuse X4S has a 1-inch sensor and a compact design. Working in tandem with the CineCore 2.0 image processing system, the Zenmuse X4S makes photo and video capture effortless.
Sensor size is vital to image quality. The Zenmuse X4S’s 1-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor uses large pixels measuring 2.4μm per pixel to create 20 megapixel images and 11.6 stops of dynamic range. Compared with the Zenmuse X3, which uses a 1/2.3-inch sensor, the Zenmuse X4S has an additional stop of dynamic range and 1.5 more stops signal to noise ratio and colour sensitivity, as well as a maximum ISO of 12,800, for even more stunning imaging capabilities.
Higher Quality Videos
Used with the Inspire 2 CineCore 2.0 image processing system, the Zenmuse X4S records 4K/60 using H.264 and 4K/30 using H.265, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. It also supports oversampling of 5.2K video to 4K, while 3D denoising technology and 3D LUT colour reproduction technology retains fine detail in captured images.
The custom-engineered 8.8mm/F2.8-11 lens is compact with low distortion and has a radial dispersion of only 3μm that is equivalent to a 24 focal length on a 35mm camera. Its high MTF rating performance and removal of low pass filters make the Zenmuse X4S an incredibly powerful camera for its size, both in the air and on the ground. The Zenmuse X4S also uses a leaf shutter capable of 1/2000 shutter speeds, eliminating rolling shutter distortion that can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed, allowing dramatic shots to be captured more easily.
Capture Every Moment
With the help of the powerful CineCore 2.0 image processing system integrated into the Inspire 2, the Zenmuse X4S is able to shoot JPEG and DNGphotos at up to 14fps in Burst Mode as well as take photos during video recording, so that the perfect moment can be captured forever.
A lightweight design combined with high speed processing makes the Zenmuse X4S gimbal motors ultra-reactive. It responds instantly to subtle movements of the airframe and neutralizes it to keep the camera stable. With a precision of ±0.01°, combined with three damping balls and lightweight damping boards that neutralize vibration, footage is completely smooth. As a result of tightly integrated and hidden wires, it is only able to rotate 320° but 360° and beyond is possible by yawing the airframe itself.
How is the Zenmuse X5S different from Zenmuse X4S?
While both cameras capture 20 megapixel photos, the X4S features a 1-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor and a fixed prime lens specially designed to fit the sensor and the imaging engine. Additionally, the X4S captures 4K video in the H.264 and H.265 formats.
The Zenmuse X5S features a M4/3 sensor and an interchangeable lens mount for M4/3 lenses. Combined with the Inspire 2’s internal CineCore 2.0 image processing system, the Zenmuse X5S can capture video H.264 and H.265 formats as well as CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes and is suitable for a wide range of professional filmmaking and television production applications.
How is the Zenmuse X4S different from the Zenmuse X3?
The Zenmuse X4S is different from the Zenmuse X3 in the following ways:
A. The image sensor on the Zenmuse X4S has been upgraded to 1-inch and 20 megapixels, meaning less noise, higher dynamic range and more powerful color expression. In comparison, the Zenmuse X3 features a 1/2.3-inch, 12 megapixel sensor.
B. The Zenmuse X4S’s high-resolution lens is ultra-compact and equipped with a manually adjustable aperture, quick Auto Focus and a Leaf Shutter.
C. In addition to 20 megapixel photos, the X4S can also shoot oversampled video at 4096x2160/60fps and supports a maximum bitrate of 100Mbps as well as H.265 encoding for superior image quality.
Can I use the Zenmuse X4S separately as a stand-alone camera?
No. The Zenmuse X4S must be used with the Inspire 2. It will be supported on additional products in future.
Should I remove the lens hood?
No. The lens hood protects the lens from dirt and damage.
How do I use Auto Focus (AF)?
Equipped with a quick AF function, the Zenmuse X4S has a focus range of 1m to infinity. For best results, we recommend that you focus before shooting. To do this, open the DJI GO app and tap the screen to focus (you might need to change Focus or Metering modes first). Focusing on a patterned area makes AF quicker and more accurate.
What kinds of exposure modes does the Zenmuse X4S support?
The X4S features an adjustable aperture and supports four exposure modes: Program (P), Aperture Priority (A), Shutter Priority (S) and Manual (M).
Does the Zenmuse X4S have a zoom function?
No. The Zenmuse X4S does not support optical zoom.
How do I use the Leaf Shutter?
The Zenmuse X4S’s Leaf Shutter will automatically engage when the shutter speed is below or slower than 1/2000s. The Zenmuse X4S’s Leaf Shutter will automatically engage when the shutter speed is below or slower than 1/2000s. The Leaf Shutter cuts out electronic rolling shutter distortion and prevents motion blur when shooting fast moving objects.
How is the H.265 codec superior to H.264?
H.265 is the new video compression standard that follows H.264. H.265 has 50% more information, better compression performance and a lower bandwidth utilization ratio. Please be aware that you will need an upgraded device to play or decode H.265 video.
Does the Zenmuse X4S support CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes video formats?
No. The Zenmuse X4S does not support either format.
