How to turn your film project into Hollywood quality with Zenmuse X5S


When making movies is your passion, you tend to brave the unknown because all you want is for your film to be amongst the best, sitting up on the billboards and watched by millions of viewers.

Heck, even getting an award or three for it, right?

When the drones replace the big cams and large crew

Hollywood’s biggest names are embracing drone camera filming. Gone are the days where you will see hundreds of movie crew on set, talk about chaos, right?

Big cinema cameras are also yesterday’s news, using a drone with a camera is today’s innovation. Even famous movie directors sing praises to the Zenmuse X5.

In recent days, filmmakers are opening up more and more to drone shot productions.

The X5 with the Inspire 2 can shoot an entire movie alone and that is only a glimpse of its true power. The drone’s dynamic range of 12.8 stops and uprated 4/3 sensor helps it become a one-camera crew.

The Zenmuse X5 as a high-end film camera enables new and seasoned cinematographers the tools to innovative storytelling. With eight standard lenses (including zoom lens) and a versatile focal varying from 9mm – 45mm, this drone camera can give you all the latitude you need to produce a great shot.

Even acclaimed actors love how the raw 5k images of DJI Zenmuse X5S adds life to their scenes. Thanks to the new CineCore 2.0 image processing system and Apple ProRes video.

This power duo adds up to the post-production flexibility of the DJI X5.

Aerial imaging is best with a high-end film camera

Recording at a 5.2k high resolution with an output of 4k is an aerial cinematographer’s dream.

To them, signal to noise ratio is vital for fast car chases and night scenes.

Thus being able to shoot a 1080p via an 18mm zoom lens is a requirement, therefore the cinema camera capabilities of Inspire 2 and X5 are their perfect partner.

Zenmuse X5S’s fantastic format also helps in building moods across the scenes.

You can push shadows up or push the highlights down.

During raw takes, you can get as much as you want. Then save it later for checking.

Movie sets are dynamic environments. Either it’s the big studios with their expensive setups.

Or an independent film production. A set where a single drone camera can take all the scenes needed.

Everyone on set is always very hands-on. Running into one room and going out of another. Doing whatever it takes to get that flawless take.

Every film set has its flow. Whatever that be, they all agree to one thing. That the intuitive features of DJI Zenmuse X5 and remote gimbal freed them. It had opened their creativity and allowed them to take the hard shots.

Thus, DJI Zenmuse X5S is rewriting the camera language.
