Equipped with an uprated Micro 4/3 sensor, the Zenmuse X5S has much improved signal to noise ratio and color sensitivity than the X5R. It supports up to eight standard M4/3 lenses (including zoom lenses) with focal lengths ranging from 9mm-45mm(equivalent to 18mm-90mm on a 35mm camera), allowing more creative flexibility.
Photo Resolutions4:3, 5280×3956 16:9, 5280×2970
Dynamic Range12.8 stops
Operating Temperature-10 to 40℃
Enhanced Camera Stabilization
Stabilizing the Zenmuse X5S is a highly optimized 3-axis gimbal with pinpoint-precise motor rotation with a control accuracy of ±0.01° powered by a dedicated processor. Rather than rely on electrical slip rings — as is common with many gimbals — the Zenmuse X5S uses a unique mechanically limited design and concealed wires to ensure more stable data transmission and greater durability. Vibration is eliminated using three damping balls and a lightweight damping board, creating seamlessly smooth video. 360° rotation remains possible through gimbal rotation and smooth aircraft yaw. Stable, smooth footage can be captured even when using a 90mm lens.
Improved Micro 4/3 Sensor
The onboard Micro 4/3 sensor has been upgraded, significantly improving image quality. With a pixel size of 3.4μm, this 20.8-megapixel sensor captures more detail than the previous sensor. It has 12.8 stops of dynamic range as well as a better signal to noise ratio and color sensitivity than the X5R, allowing it to create clear, low noise images in low light environments.
Fast, Efficient Workflows
The DJI CINESSD card (PCIe3.0 NVMe SSD support) and a highly optimized FAT32/exFAT file system, allows Zenmuse X5Sfootage to be transferred directly through the DJI CINESSD STATION card reader to a computer at high speeds without anyadditional software. Footage also supports the DIT standard. CinemaDNG or Apple ProRes workflows can be used for post-processing.

Compatible with Multiple Lenses
Since it uses a standard Micro 4/3 mount, the Zenmuse X5S now supports up to eight professional lenses with focal lengths ranging from 9mm-45mm (equivalent to 18mm-90mm on a 35mm camera), providing more creative control over the final look of a shot.
