Part# Z-30

Aerial platforms are rapidly becoming vital tools for businesses looking to more efficiently collect information crucial to their operations. The Zenmuse Z30 is the first integrated aerial camera with up to 30x optical zoom and digital zoom up to 6x. This camera and gimbal system offers unparalleled image data capture. Enterprise users of DJI products are now able to capture the information they require from a greater range making image data collection significantly faster. Also, the Zenmuse Z30 significantly reduces risk of harm to both personnel and equipment.

Main Features
1. Zoom
The Zenmuse Z30 is the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market with 30x optical and 6x digital zoom for a total magnification up to 180x. Whether you are inspecting cell towers or wind turbines, it enables you to get a detailed look at structures, wires, modules and components for the purpose of detecting defects and damage.
As a result of allowing detailed inspections from a distance without the need to fly close to the subject, not only is speed and efficiency of your operations increased, but the risk of collision is all but eliminated.
2. Stabilization
A high-powered zoom means that any movement in the system is magnified, so stability is of utmost importance. The Zenmuse Z30 incorporates DJIs leading gimbal technology for stabilization within 0.01°, and the same precision for controls. This enables long-range inspection with high reliability.
3. TapZoom
With TapZoom, precise collection of visual data is as easy as tapping your finger to point the camera at the subject of your inspection. The Zenmuse Z30 automatically adjusts its focal length to give you an enlarged view, making the most miniscule of details visible in just seconds.
*Note: The Zenmuse Z30 IS NOT compatible with the Inspire series.
Use Cases
1. Cell Tower Inspection
As an on-site pilot flies the Zenmuse Z30 equipped airframe they are able to livestream their findings to engineers located anywhere in the world. With live communication, both engineers and pilots can work towards identifying any concerns for the fastest possible inspection.

2. Wind turbine inspection
By using the Zenmuse Z30, you are able to keep the distance from the turbine and still see the condition of the most
vital parts of the turbine in incredible detail. As sudden gusts of wind in these areas may affect the aircrafts navigation,
being able to inspect from a distance gives pilots a larger margin of error and helps them avoid collisions.
With advanced tracking features, the difficulty of simultaneously flying the aircraft and operating the camera is
eliminated as the turbine is automatically kept centered in the frame. With Point of Interest, you can even set the
aircraft to circle the turbine at a constant radius while continuously seeing it in your live HD view.

3. Firefighting
Firefighters depend on having accurate information to base their operations. By using an airframe equipped with the
Zenmuse Z30, rescue teams are able to significantly increase speed of operation and the quality of data collected.
At its standard focal length, the Zenmuse Z30s wide angle provides an overview of a scene. When a detailed view is
needed, TapZoom lets operators instantly zoom in to drill down on an area of interest.

A high-powered zoom means that any movement in the system is magnified, so stability is of utmost importance. The Z30 incorporates DJIs leading gimbal technology for stabilization within 0.01° and the same precision for controls. This enables long-range inspection that is always high in fidelity.

*Please also note that the Z30 is not compatible with the Inspire series, and a special adaptor is needed for your Matrice if you do not buy in a bundle
