DJI Zenmuse X7 (DL Mount system)

DJI introduced the Zenmuse X7 gimbal with DL mount. Current they have created the 16mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm prime lenses for this mount. Sounds really exciting, but lacks real world test at this moment. Low light photography has always been a challenge for aerial. With this new introduction, we are going to see a whole new world open up for photographer and film makers, taking their imagination and creativity sky high.

With a price tag of US$2699 excluding lens and each lens averaging a price tag of US$1299 or a complete set with 4 lenses at US$4299, a worthy upgrade from the x5s? Personally, I will hold back the investment for the new mount to mature a little more.

New Teaser from DJI for 11 October

What could it be this time round? DJI just refreshed the Mavic Pro to Platinum, Phantom 4 has been upgraded to Phantom 4 Pro together with the Inspire 2 (but a while back).

So could it be:

  1. A new Zenmuse X series Camera for the OSMO and Inspire?
  2. Phantom 5?
  3. A new lens for the X5s mount?

Personally, what I do hope for, is for DJI to build in the Phantom 4 pro camera into the Mavic Pro form factor. That will open up a whole  possibilities for indoor aerial video and also for photographers to bring an UAV to very remote areas to capture high quality low light images.

Stay tuned to my latest update on 11th October 2017.
