DJI Zenmuse Z Series cameras supply detailed aerial video and close-up still photography from DJI flying platforms. The cameras are optimized for still photography. The line includes the Zenmuse Z3 camera, with 3.5x optical and 2x digital zoom, and the Zenmuse Z30 camera, with 30x optical zoom and 6x lossless digital zoom. These cameras are especially adaptable to industrial inspections of bridges, buildings, cell towers, wind turbines and power lines. They are also lifesavers, helping in search-and-rescue and firefighting. Both are mounted on 3-axis gimbals to stabilize images.
Z Series advantages include:
- Compatibility with Inspire 1, Inspire 2 or Matrice 100 quadcopters, or Matrice 600 hexcopter (Z3); or M100 and M600 drones (Z30)
- Up to 7x magnification with Z3
- Up to 180x magnification with Z30
- Extra yaw control in the 3-axis gimbal to help quell shakes during zoomed video
- Sharp 12MP stills, even from zoomed images
- In-flight focusing
- Real-time streaming of images
- Ability to zero in on hard-to-reach tall structures
- Closer looks at hazardous areas, such as fires, earthquake rubble and building collapses
DJI Zenmuse Z3 Camera with 3.5x Optical Zoom
The Zenmuse Z3, with its 3.5x optical zoom and 2x digital zoom, is a surprisingly affordable solution for industrial inspections and search-and-rescue operations. The Z3 records 4K video or 12MP stills. Close-ups are especially sharp in still photographs. When mounted on an Inspire or Matrice UAV, this camera can zoom in on otherwise unreachable targets: the housing on a wind turbine, the insulator on a high-tension electrical tower, or the rubble from a natural disaster, explosion or fire. The Z3, when mounted to a drone, promotes worker safety and improves inspection results.
DJI Zenmuse Z30 – 30x Optical Zoom Camera/Gimbal
The closest view of critical equipment extending scores or hundreds of feet above ground has also become the least expensive: a zoom camera mounted on an unmanned flying platform. No drone-mounted camera gives a closer look than the DJI Zenmuse Z30.
Astounding 180x magnification results from 30x optical zoom and 6x lossless digital zoom. Video and stills, streamed live, can be relayed instantaneously to engineers or decision-makers anywhere.
With a tap of the onscreen controls, the Z30 can provide detail of a power line, an insulator, a cell tower antenna or a suspension cable atop a bridge. Industries get a close look without exposing workers to danger and without hiring an expensive helicopter. Firefighters can zoom in on hot spots, and rescue workers can quickly cover blocks of debris in a search for survivors.
