* Currently supports the Inspire 1 series, Inspire 1 v2.0, Matrice 100 and Matrice 600.
The DJI Zenmuse Z3 is an integrated aerial zoom camera based on DJI’s
class leading Zenmuse X3 and optimized for still photography. A 7x zoom
made up of 3.5x optical and 2x digital lossless zoom creates a 22mm to
77mm equivalent focal length range, making it ideal for industrial
ENHANCED YAW STABILITY
When a camera is zoomed in the smallest movements are
magnified. Adding an additional layer of stability to the yaw control of
the Z3 is a custom designed reaction wheel. This works in tandem with
the normal yaw motor to allow for more refined movement.
HIGH QUALITY IMAGING
Featuring the same highly refined Sony 1/2.3 inch sensor found on the
DJI Inspire 1 2.0 and DJI Phantom 4, image quality is class leading.
Still images can be captured at a resolution of 12 megapixels, while
Adobe DNG RAW support allows for advanced image editing. Video can be
captured at up to 30 frames per second in crisp 4K.
The ability to zoom in the air creates many new opportunities to
streamline and enhance industrial and commercial drone use, from power
line inspection to search and rescue. It also provides aerial
photographers with greater control over composition.
RAPID SETUP AND EXTENDED FLIGHT TIME
Flying with the Zenmuse Z3 is as simple as attaching it to the DJI
Inspire 1, Matrice 100 or Matrice 600. Once connected, it works
seamlessly with the integrated DJI Lightbridge and Lightbridge 2 found
on these platforms to provide 3.1mi (5km) of HD transmission range.
Aircraft setup can be further accelerated using the DJI SDK to create
industry specific aircraft automation protocols that maximize aircraft
Flight times when used with a DJI Inspire 1 reach up to 19 minutes, and
can even reach 30 minutes when flying a dual-battery equipped Matrice
100 and 39 minutes using the Matrice 600. Longer flight times maximize
airtime, increasing the efficiency of industrial and commercial projects
while providing photographers with additional time to wait for the
right light, compose and capture the perfect shot.
POWERFUL APP CONTROL
DJI’s GO app is tightly integrated with the Z3, acting as both a live
feed to see the camera’s image and the primary control system for the
camera. It can be used to change camera settings, swipe to zoom in and
out, capture photo or video, and activate Intelligent Flight Modes.
Photo and video capture as well as zoom can also be controlled through
dedicated controls on the Remote Controller.
