DJI has updated its $2,699 Zenmuse X7 camera to support the new ProRes RAW standard from Apple, which was introduced along with Final Cut Pro X 10.4.1. The X7 is a compact Super 35 camera with an integrated gimbal for high-end filmmaking.
Enabled through firmware updates, the Zenmuse X7 also gains performance enhancements that deliver improved workflows and image quality, according to Paul Pan, senior product manager at DJI. The firmware update also adds 14-bit RAW recording mode enables 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, he adds.
What’s more, enhanced data processing performance makes the Zenmuse X7 more nimble and capable with improvements to its file system and broader operating system compatibility, according to Pan.
