Taking advantage of the unique FSI-Cu technology, the X7’s sensor features a thinner interconnection to allow light to reach the sensing area at a wider angle of incidence, increasing its photosensitivity. This enables the use of a more compact lens while maintaining excellent image quality.
The DL-Mount’s flange focal length is less than 17mm, about 1/3 the distance on a PL-Mount. This compact mount system reduces the weight of the X7 to just 630g, including the lens. Together, the Zenmuse X7 and Inspire 2 weigh in at a mere 4kg, yet still manage to capture the same professional footage as camera bodies weighing 40kg.
