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.
A lightweight design combined with high speed processing makes the Zenmuse X4S gimbal motors ultra-reactive. It responds instantly to subtle movements of the air frame and neutralises it to keep the camera stable. With a precision of ±0.01°, combined with three damping balls and lightweight damping boards that neutralise 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 air frame itself.
