As any drone pilot will tell you, some of the most innovative 4K RAW cameras in the past 3 years have come from DJI. Their 5.2K RAW Super 35mm sensor in the X7 being one example. This unfortunately remains a drone-only option (Inspire 2) and the image processing is in the drone itself, meaning the X7 cannot yet be attached to anything else such as a Ronin-S gimbal or small OSMO-style pistol grip.

DJI’s next step could involve a whole new kind of device.¬†The drones are established now. DJI could now take a huge step into the cinema camera market to compete with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.
