Closing the Distance

Zenmuse Z30 offers unparalleled image data capture. Enterprises are now able to capture the information they require from a greater range, making image data collection significantly faster and eliminates risk of harm to both personnel and equipment. Designed to seamlessly integrate with DJI’s Matrice series of airframes, the Zenmuse Z30 works right out of the box and gives access to the intelligent features DJI is known for.

Industry applications


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 to detect damage. As a result of letting you conduct inspections from a distance without the need to fly close, not only is speed and efficiency of your operations increased but risk of collision is obviated.


A high-powered zoom means that any movement in the system is magnified, so stability is of utmost importance. The Z30 incorporates DJI’s 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.


Adapting the Z30 to your existing Matrice-based aerial system is easy thanks to its integrated design. Simply slide the camera in the mount and you’re ready for take-off. The Zenmuse Z30 is designed for use with DJI Lightbridge 2, breaking technical limits to increase range up to 3.1 miles (5km). The integrated controller and intelligent algorithms set a new standard for wireless HD image transmission by lowering latency and increasing image fidelity.
