RAW Drone Video

posted in: 2020

Ozark Drones is proud to announce that we now offer lossless 4K RAW video as a recording option. RAW footage, simply put, is the purest form of video that can be captured. It offers the maximum dynamic range and a lot more flexibility in post-production. It is ideal for cinematic productions where image quality and video bitrate need to be second to none.

The RAW drone camera system that we now have available is the DJI Zenmuse X5R, which mounts to the DJI Inspire 1 aerial UAV. The X5R camera houses a Micro Four Thirds sensor with 12.8 stops of dynamic range, and records 4K RAW footage at up to 30 frames per second. The average data bitrate of the 12-bit RAW footage is 1.7 Gbps, which is about 17x higher than most consumer drones available on the market. (This means the footage is going to retain every bit of detail from the filming location!)

Just like our X5 aerial camera, the X5R also offers us the ability to switch out various lens options. This ensures that we can obtain the right field of view for your project. If you have any questions regarding our aerial camera systems, feel free to message us on our contact page.
