Equipped with an updated Micro 4/3 sensor, the Zenmuse X5S has a dynamic range of 12.8 stops with a much-improved signal to noise ratio and color sensitivity than the X5R. It supports up to 8 standard M4/3 lenses (including zoom lenses) with focal lengths ranging from 9mm-45mm (equivalent to 18mm-90mm on a 35mm camera), allowing more creative flexibility. The cew CineCore 2.0 image processing system on the Inspire 2 makes the Zenmuse S5S capable of capturing 5.2K 30fps CinemaDNG video and Apple ProRes video as as well as 4K 60fps using H.264 and 4K 30fps using H.265 (both at 100 bps). Continuous DNG burst shooting at 20 fps with 20.8MP images is also supported. The Zenmuse X5S was designed to keep pace with the rigor of high-end professional aerial imaging.
