DJI Zenmuse X7 is DJI’s best Sensor so far according to DxOMark !


DJI has just released a new Zenmuse X7 camera, according to DxOMark, the Zenmuse X7’s image sensor is the best sensor so far from DJI. The DxOMark score for Zenmuse X7 is 86.

The Zenmuse X7 improves noticeably on previously-tested DJI cameras. It has an advantage of around 1.6EV over the Phantom 4 Pro in the Sport (Low-Light ISO) score, making it a great option for images taken among trees or even indoors. With a difference of 2.6 bits in the Portrait (Color Depth) score and a 1.4EV increase in dynamic range, the Zenmuse X7 will also produce images that have better colors and a wider tonal range than those from the Phantom 4 Pro.

With an overall image quality performance that is very close to Nikon’s D7500 DSLR, the Zenmuse X7 is a great choice of camera for aerial photography, delivering better color sensitivity, dynamic range and low-light performance than many popular drone cameras.

Conclusions from DxOMark:

Thanks to an increase in its size as much as to technological advancements, the DJI Zenmuse X7’s sensor takes a significant step up in performance from the Zenmuse X5S sensor. In fact, it delivers results that compete closely with those from a high-scoring APS-C format DSLR, despite being housed in a camera that’s mounted in a stabilized gimbal and specifically designed for aerial photography.

The Panasonic GH4 (recently been replaced by the GH5) has been a popular choice of camera for drone use, but our results indicate that the Zenmuse X7 could be a better choice of camera for aerial photography than the GH5, as it delivers better color sensitivity, dynamic range, and low-light performance.
