If you have Windows, then the hi res, "ProRes like" codec is DNx (DNxHR 444 12-bit). I believe premiere will accept this format.

(edit -- rethinking.... this is how hasselblad denotes it's lenses with the "/" in which case this is 16mm f/2.8 -- guess dji is getting into the glass business).

The patents I tried to read talked about a method for making a zoom lens more compact...very curious how they are managing to miniaturize what should be a pretty substantial lens if it has the 4 or 5:1 zoom range the teaser video seemed to imply.

Maybe Hasselblad had some involvement in this?

One can only hope.

Guesses are irrelevant. Lets see the specs and price tomorrow.

$3500 for the camera. 2.8 primes $600. 2.8-5.6 4:1 zoom $1200 (not that it would make any sense as slow aps-c glass is much cheaper, but if hasselblad had anything to do with is, they price their zooms about double their primes).

Licenses -- I hope this is a 5.2k camera that plays nice with the existing licensing. If it's a 6k or higher, I could see dji wanting a new license. Too much to contemplate while speculating... :-)

You'd think it would be cropable back to 5.2k for those who only need 5.2, though. This camera will have other advantages besides just resolution.

says the man who scoured the dji site for that link :-) --- which by the way is now gone --- another accidental release? don't think so!

looks like a prime to me, and the 4:3 sensors are just standard ...who knows wich part gets used...

If I had to guess, it will have the exact same resolution as the original. DJI seems to have maxed out the processor on the I2, so unless they are releasing a new bird tomorrow, I think larger pixels, integrated lens hoods, and a lightweight zoom -- and of course the ability to sell purpose built glass in general -- are the real story here. But never underestimate the ability of a camera company (other than canon) to give us more resolution than we need. :-)

I didn’t put any guesses up...just active links and photos ;-) But I think you’re absolutely right...this was very “accidental” ;-) Hahaha...

Perhaps they feel they are loosing traction after launching all their “Coming Soon” products that’s never been up for sale (Cendence, CS 2,000 nit, OSMO 2 etc.)

One thing is for sure about this camera though: NOBODY is going to trust their launch date.

Nothing standard about this sensor, that I know of...my guess is the 4:3 is there for still photography, and then various crops for video formats. If it were a true super 35mm video sensor it would generally be a bit wider and less tall. This ends up cropped at slightly smaller than a raven sensor, so it's not a huge step up from micro 4/3, but the 4:3 gives it a super 35mm diagonal, so they can call it super35..and gets them into the lens business, which my friends in the lens business tell me, is extremely profitable. :-)
