Camerawork combines creativity and technology in a way that sometimes makes it hard to be objective about gear. That has never been truer as when discussing lenses, with crews on big-budget dramas poring over reference monitors for hours evaluating waveform, vector scope and histograms. People using full-sized broadcast cameras have almost as many options, though the concerns tend to be more practical and less interpretive. That sort of choice, though, has not always been quite so available to miniature, point-of-view and special purpose cameras. It’s a subject complicated by the ultra-clear resolutions of modern digital cameras, demanding equally sharp lenses, as well as the inclination of certain directors to shoot in very challenging light conditions.

Like we said in our last ProductionHUB newsletter, the new product announcements just keep on coming. In the intimate (and way too cool) setting of the Neuhous Theater and under a gorgeous Los Angles twilight, DJI unleashed maybe — just maybe — one of the most captivating and interesting new products in recent memory. The Zenmuse X7 with a 35mm sensor and a full set of new carbon fiber lens designed specifically to work with the 35mm sensor. Gotta tell you straight up - they knocked it out of the park. Long known for excellence in the drone world, DJI seems keen on not only keeping up but also surpassing the norm. What was on display wasn’t just new product but some new ways of approaching the production and post-production workflow.

The Tribeca Film Festival lit up the NYC skyline with a dazzling array of films and projects ranging from full-length features to documentaries and shorts. Then to just to add to the mix, there were unique and original works in the VR and immersive space.
When I was first approached by DJI about reviewing the Zenmuse X7 and the Inspire 2, I said yes without any hesitation. Who wouldn't want to get their hands on this superbly built platform along with the X7? Then it dawned on me. I’ve never flown a drone like this before. Not that I didn’t want to, but it was that darn FAA License thing (or lack of) kind of in the way. I was very tempted to just fly it anyways, but then I thought maybe I would be better off calling in a favor or two to do this review the right way.
