Sensor size is vital to image quality. The Zenmuse X4S’s 1-inch Exmor R CMOS sensor uses large pixels measuring 2.4μm per pixel to create 20 megapixel images and 11.6 stops of dynamic range. Compared with the Zenmuse X3, which uses a 1/2.3-inch sensor, the Zenmuse X4S has an additional stop of dynamic range and 1.5 more stops signal to noise ratio and color sensitivity, as well as a maximum ISO of 12,800, for even more stunning imaging capabilities.
The custom-engineered 8.8mm/F2.8-11 lens is compact with low distortion and has a radial dispersion of only 3μm that is equivalent to a 24 focal length on a 35mm camera. Its high MTF rating performance and removal of low pass filters make the Zenmuse X4S an incredibly powerful camera for its size, both in the air and on the ground. The Zenmuse X4S also uses a leaf shutter capable of 1/2000 shutter speeds, eliminating rolling shutter distortion that can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed, allowing dramatic shots to be captured more easily.
A lightweight design combined with high speed processing makes the Zenmuse X4S gimbal motors ultra-reactive. It responds instantly to subtle movements of the airframe and neutralizes it to keep the camera stable. With a precision of ±0.01°, combined with three damping balls and lightweight damping boards that neutralize vibration, footage is completely smooth. As a result of tightly integrated and hidden wires, it is only able to rotate 320° but 360° and beyond is possible by yawing the airframe itself.
