Ultra-High Definition 4K Zoom Camera

The Zenmuse Z3 is a high-powered gimbal camera that features a variable zoom range for extended reach. It has a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor and can shoot 12MP photos and UHD 4K videos with maximum resolutions of 4096x2160 at 25p and 3840x2160 at 30p.

Armed with a 22–77mm f/2.8-5.2 lens, the Z3 offers up to 7x real-time zoom capability (3.5x optical and 2x digital lossless zoom). This allows the camera to zoom in without reducing image quality, thus allowing more versatility and creative freedom for your aerial shots.

Maximum Stability on Three Axes

Zoom cameras are particularly challenging to work with as small movements tend to become more noticeable the more you zoom in. But with the 3-axis gimbal stabilizer that features brushless servo motors, the Z3 is able to achieve greater yaw control and more refined camera movements during flight. Even when panning a full 360 degrees or when shooting at its maximum zoom, this gimbal camera can deliver tack-sharp images and the smoothest videos.

Quick & Easy Setup

The Zenmuse Z3 is the perfect aerial imaging tool for industrial and commercial applications not only because of its 4K video recording and zooming capabilities, but also because of the hassle-free setup. Users simply need to attach it to a compatible DJI drone, and once connected it will work seamlessly with DJI Lightbridge or Lightbridge 2 for an extended transmission range of up to 3.1 miles.
