The onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor.
A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the first DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter, eliminating rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate.
Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced post-production.
