The Zenmuse X4S is a massively powerful camera and gimbal setup from DJI featuring a 20MP 1-inch sensor and a max ISO of 12,800.
Dynamic range is increased from the Zenmuse X3 by 1 stop, with signal-to-noise ratio and colour sensitivity increased by 1.5 stops for next-level image quality. The Zenmuse X4S uses a DJI-designed compact lens with low dispersion and low distortion 24mm equivalent prime lens. This 84° FOV high-resolution lens makes the Zenmuse X4S as powerful during aerial imaging as it is on the ground.
Combined with CineCore 2.0, the Inspire 2’s powerful image processing system, it can record 4K/60 H.264 and 4K/30 H.265 videos at a 100Mbps bitrate, and oversample 5.2K video into 4Kvideo in real-time, capturing fine image details. In Burst Mode, the Zenmuse X4S supports 14fps shooting at 20MP in both JPEG and DNG formats. It is able to make the difficult balance between agility and image quality.
Unlike the Inspire 1 series, the Inspire 2 utilises an innovative structure that separates the CineCore 2.0 image processing system from the camera and places it inside the aircraft. This means that the sensor and optical system are detachable and easily connected using a newly designed quick-release connector. Designing the camera system in this way effectively protects the sensor from magnetic interference originating from the processor.
It also allows a range of lightweight camera units to be connected as required by different scenes. The Zenmuse X4S has a 1-inch sensor and a compact design. Working in tandem with the CineCore 2.0 image processing system, the Zenmuse X4S makes photo and video capture effortless.
Sensor size is vital to image quality. The Zenmuse X4S’s 1-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor uses large pixels measuring 2.4μm per pixel to create 20MP images and 11.6 stops of dynamic range. Compared with the Zenmuse X3, which uses a 1/2.3-inch sensor, the Zenmuse X4S has an additional stop of dynamic range and 1.5 more stops signal to noise ratio and colour sensitivity, as well as a maximum ISO of 12,800, for even more stunning imaging capabilities.
Used with the Inspire 2 CineCore 2.0 image processing system, the Zenmuse X4S records 4K/60 using H.264 and 4K/30 using H.265, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. It also supports oversampling of 5.2K video to 4K, while 3D denoising technology and 3D LUT colour reproduction technology retains fine detail in captured images.
The custom-engineered 8.8mm/F2.8-11 lens is compact with low distortion and has a radial dispersion of 3μm that is equivalent to a 24 focal length on a 35mm

Very quick delivery. Excellent product (gimbal ribbon for phantom 3 standard)- works fine , unlike many after market ribbons
Great service as always.
Very please with the fast delivery.
Very helpfull very knowledgeable will shop there again.

Steve actioned my request for crash cover swiftly despite there being an online problem. I also found Steve to be enthusiastic and polite and is a credit to Heliguy along with the rest of his colleagues. Well done everyone, a pleasure dealing with you all.
Very happy with my purchase - a great deal from Heliguy and would happily buy from them again. They shipped really quickly and delivery was easy in a one hour timeslot too.

I would like to congratulate the team on some exceptional service that I recently had. I got in touch with Kevin in Repairs recently as I only a few days before heading to Croatia when my Mavic Camera Gimbal decided to have a malfunction. He took upon himself to do everything in his power to ensure it was couriered to you from Surrey and returned in time for my departure. I can't tell you how delighted I was to see it arrive prior to leaving as my continued work with a work provider depended on me Droning this particular Cycle cruise.

Steve Mapps is really helpful man,he explains me everything very clear I can recommend him everyone. Thanks Kris

Fantastic help today, and we didn't even want to buy anything! First class service from a first class company.
From: Clare miller
Fast, efficient & friendly!
In all honesty, this guy (and heliguy of course) saved my helicopter hobby and fascination for me. I am the happy owner of a 400 heli again and cannot get enough of it. The help and service recieved is above and beyond and is completely genuine as it goes. Thank you Scott and Heliguy.
