High-Powered Zoom for Matrice Series Aircrafts

The Zenmuse Z30 is the first aerial camera to feature an optical zoom of up to 30x and digital zoom up to 6x, for a total of 180x. When mounted on any compatible DJI Matrice airframe, you get an intelligent drone that is capable of capturing unparalleled image data for a wide range of industrial drone applications. The camera also has a TapZoom feature that makes zooming in and getting an enlarged view of a specific area as quick and easy as tapping your finger on your monitoring screen.

Optimum Image Stabilization

The Z30 is mounted with on a 3-axis gimbal stabilizer, which helps keep the camera steady even as the drone flies at high speeds. Stabilization is especially crucial for long zoom cameras that tend to magnify even the smallest movements, particularly at the longest focal lengths. The result is smoother videos and tack-sharp images, so you get get the most out of the camera’s groundbreaking zoom capabilities for long-range inspections.

Safer & More Efficient Drone Operations

With a specially designed aerial camera with super-zoom capabilities, enterprise users can now speed up image data collection. More importantly, there’s no more need to put personnel and equipment at risk during dangerous manual inspections. Move in “closer,” optically and digitally, to safely inspect and detect structural damage on cell towers, wind turbines, and other assets. It also allows you to stream live footage as you closely monitor ground zero areas from great distances for first responders in firefighting and other rescue operations.

The DJI Zenmuse Z30 offers faster, safer, more accurate image data collection than ever before. This aerial zoom camera is ideally suited for a range of industrial applications, with a powerful 30x optical and 6x digital zoom, allowing pilots to fly at a safe distance from components, structures, wires, etc., while still boasting the ability to collect precise and detailed images. The 30x optical and 6x digital zoom combine for a total magnification power of up to 180x, making it the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market.

The powerful magnification ability of the Z30 means that any movement is exaggerated, which is why the 3-axis gimbal stabilization is so critical. The leading gimbal technology from DJI ensures that you have stabilization to within 0.01°, providing you with the high fidelity images and videos that you need for efficient, accurate data-gathering operations.

The Zenmuse Z30 is compatible with any of the Matrice Series drones - simply slide the camera onto the mount, and it’s ready for action. The Z30 can be connected with DJI’s Go app for access to a variety of automatic features, including the TapZoom function, with makes automatic focal length adjustment as easy as a simple tap on the screen. Other features available through the DJI Go app include intelligent flight modes, automatic flight logs and live HD view to let you see exactly what the camera sees, allowing you to capture critical data with precision. When used with the DJI Lightbridge 2 controller, range is extended to an impressive 3.1 miles (5km), allowing you increased flexibility, speed, and efficiency in your operations.

The features of the Z30 make it perfect for conducting asset inspections in a variety of industries. In the energy sector, wind turbine inspections are made easy, safe and efficient with the powerful zoom capabilities of the Z30, allowing you to detect any damage or wear and tear without putting personnel or valuable assets at risk. With the DJI Go app it’s a matter of seconds to set up a Point of Interest flight program to obtain a 360° view of your object of inspection. The Z30 is also ideally suited to inspections of cell towers, eliminating the need for climbers. The zoom range means that inspections can be conducted at a distance, with no risk of damaging assets, while still maintaining the ability to collect detailed, high-fidelity images.

Firefighters and other first responders can use the Z30 to quickly get the big picture of a scene on arrival, and use the 30x zoom to gather information on minute details. When seconds and absolutely accurate information are critical, this capability can save lives by increasing the efficiency and accuracy of first response operations.
