Heliguy X7 ShowreelTake a look at the Heliguy Zenmuse X7 showreel that has been compiled with shots captured around Saint Mary’s Lighthouse in Whitley Bay. Please note, this is a demo version of the X7 and does not fully reflect the features of the final product. Heliguy X7 Showreel - The Coast 2017 from Heliguy on Vimeo. Video shot in 4K with 24mm and 50mm lens. D-Log video soon to be released. As you can see from the above video, the X7 can produce some breathtaking footage. The clarity of the images across the colour spectrum is impressive, even in 4K. The shots in the water have outstanding detail showing the contrast between the waves, rocks and the still water. The horizon does appear to be unsteady however, it's expected this is due to the model being a prototype and shouldn't be seen on the released version of the X7.
DJI X7 ShowreelHere's another chance to see the DJI showreel of the X7 which features the results of the final product: https://youtu.be/czAdi3j855Q As you can see, the issue mentioned above with the uneven horizon have been corrected and the footage is even more powerful.
