The Zenmuse X5S was designed to keep pace with the challenges of professional aerial imaging.
Equipped with a new and improved Micro 4/3 sensor, the Zenmuse X5S has a dynamic range of 12.8 stops with a better signal to noise ratio and colour sensitivity than its predecessor, the X5R. It supports up to eight standard M4/3 lenses (including zoom lenses) with focal lengths ranging from 9mm-45mm, allowing more variety for image capture.
The new CineCore 2.0 image processing system on the Inspire 2 makes the Zenmuse X5S capable of capturing 5.2K 30fps CinemaDNG video and Apple ProRes video as well as 4K 60fps using H.264 and 4K 30fps using H.265 (both at 100Mbps). Continuous DNG burst shooting at 20fps with 20.8MP images is also supported.
Unlike the DJI Inspire 1 series, the Inspire 2 separates the CineCore 2.0 image processing system from the camera and integrates it into the aircraft. This means that the sensor and optical system are detachable and can easily be attached using a newly designed quick-release connector. Designing the camera system in this way effectively protects the sensor from magnetic interference. It also allows a range of lightweight camera units to be connected as required by different scenes.
The updated M4/3 sensor allows the Zenmuse X5S to capture high-resolution images of incredibly high quality when combined with the CineCore 2.0 image processing system. With a pixel size of 3.4μm, this 20.8MP 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 colour sensitivity than the X5R, allowing it to create clear, low noise images in low light environments.
Using CineCore 2.0, the Zenmuse X5S records video at a maximum resolution of 5.2K/30fps in CinemaDNG 12bit1, 5.2K 30fps Apple ProRes 422 HQ and 4K 30fps Apple ProRes 4444 XQ 2. Additional recording options include video in 4K/60fps using H.264 or oversampling video in 4K/30fps using H.264/H.265, both with a bitrate of 100Mbps.
The DJI CINESSD card and a highly optimised FAT32/exFAT file system ensure that footage from the Zenmuse X5S is transferred directly through the DJI CINESSD Station card reader to a computer at high speeds without any additional software. CinemaDNG or Apple ProRes workflows can be used for post-processing.

Hi There - my name is Bev Parker and the service and help I received from Matt and as well some other chaps in the team was AMAZING! I rang that often, they used to say Hi Bev just from me saying hello - they recognised my voice! I was helped through on every aspect in secretly buying my husband a new drone, they were very patient with me and I have to say - A Joy to deal with. When I was deciding who to buy from I remembered my husband speaking very highly of you guys. Keep up the good work... Kindest Regards to you all Bev :) :) :)

As always you are brilliant even though I am a pain in the!!!
From: Andy Habin
I dealt with Sam throughout the process of buying an Inspire 2 setup and all the extras. He could not have been more helpful getting me organised with the correct accessories and putting my mind at ease knowing I was doing the right thing. He could not have been any better to deal with. I would highly recommend Heliguy, Sam and his team to anyone looking to purchase UAV kit.
Once I get my delivery ... hopefully Wednesday ... I'll be even happier :)
