DJI Zenmuse X5S Without Lens
The DJI Zenmuse X5S is a gimbal that comes equipped with an uprated Micro 4/3 sensor, has a dynamic range of 12.8 stops, improved signal-to-noise ratio and colour sensitivity and is compatible with eight different M4/3 lenses with focal lengths ranging from 9mm-45mm.*
The DJI Zenmuse X5S with 15mm Lens is also available.
Perfect for the Inspire 2
When combined with the CineCore 2.0 image processing system of the Inspire 2* the Zenmuse X5S is capable of capturing 5.2K 30fps CinemaDNG video and Apple ProRes video* as well as 4K 60fps using H.264 and 4K 30fpsusing H.265 (both at 100Mbps). Continuous DNG burst shooting at 20fps with 20.8MP images is also supported. The Zenmuse X5S was designed to keep pace with the rigours of high-end professional aerial imaging.
*You may need to purchase a licence key to record with CinemaDNG or Apple ProRes.
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 colour sensitivity than the X5R, allowing it to create clear, low-noise images in low-light environments.
List of compatible lenses
The DJI Zenmuse X5S is compatible with the following eight professional lenses;*
- Olympus 12mm f2.0 ZUIKO Digital ED Micro Four Thirds lens
- Olympus 17mm f1.8 M.ZUIKO DIGITAL Micro Four Thirds lens
- Panasonic 15mm f1.7 Leica Summilux DG ASPH Micro Four Thirds Lens
- Olympus 25mm F1.8 M.ZUIKO DIGITAL Lens

- DJI MFT 15mm/1.7 ASPH
*A balancing ring is needed for some lenses. More compatible lenses will be available.
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 (no alpha)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.
Lossless In-Video Single and Burst Photo Capture
Using only the Micro SD card, 20.8MP stills can be captured at 14fps in Burst Mode in JPEG+DNG. Using the DJI CINESSD opens up 20fps continuous DNG Burst Mode with a maximum image resolution of 20.8 megapixels. Stills can also be taken during video recording without interruption.
Enhanced Camera Stabilisation
Stabilising the Zenmuse X5S is a highly optimised 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 a 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.
*Equivalent to 35mm camera’s standard focal length
**Exposure time must be equal to or longer than 1/60 in GPS mode
Long-range Camera and Focus Control
Take control over every camera setting from afar, including focus, aperture, and format, directly in the DJI GO 4 app. Precision control also extends to focus, with DJI GO 4 and the optional DJI Focus, offering focus control across the entire transmission range. Using DJI Focus, no additional cables or motors are needed and new Lightbridge technology sends all signals as far as 4.3mi (7km) away*.
* Unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant.
