DJI have launched the Zenmuse Z30, a massively powerful integrated aerial zoom camera. The Z30’s zoom capabilities mean it can collect precise visual data from over 100 meters and focus in on extremely precise details from distance.


“The Zenmuse Z30’s ability for image data capture is unparalleled,” said Paul Xu, director of DJI Enterprise Solutions. “With its extended range, enterprise clients can conduct millimeter-level inspections without the need to fly close, ensuring high flight safety, while increasing speed and efficiency.”


The Zenmuse Z30 has been designed to integrate with DJI’s Matrice series. DJI have stated that it will work right out of the box, offering up to 30x optical zoom and an additional digital zoom up to 6x. Apparently, it can also stabilise to within 0.01 degree.

Users can zoom at the tap of a finger and it's fully integrated into the DJI Go app. With the new TapZoom function, the Z30 will reorient towards the object when tapping it on your screen. With each tap, the Zenmuse Z30 will automatically adjust its focal length to give an enlarged view.

Offering users fast, safe and precise inspection services, the Zenmuse Z30 is perfect for cell tower inspections, airframes equipped with the Z30 camera can operate well beyond the range of cell tower’s electromagnetic fields and livestream footage to engineers anywhere in the world. This is a great alternative to dangerous manual inspection methods, and using drones for inspections is a much safer alternative to putting humans in those perilous places.

The Z30 can also remain at a safe distance while inspecting a wind turbine, yet still show the condition of vital parts in detail. There's also a highly intuitive “Point of Interest” tracking feature whereby the aircraft circles the turbine at a constant distance, keeping the object in the centre of the camera frame.

First responders should now be able to use the 30x zoom to quickly get an overview of a scene and collect accurate and specific information to better plan their rescue operations.
