The Zenmuse Z3 is similar to the X3 camera in looks and specs, but it's the first camera DJI have designed with zoom capabilities. With up to 4K 30fps video and 7x zoom, this camera was worth the wait.

The Z3 will only be sold separately, but will be compatible with the Inspire series of quadcopters as well as the Matrice 100 and Matrice 600 (additional mount required). It will NOT be compatible with the Osmo Handheld gimbal.

Zoom Capability

Here at RC Geeks, we have had many customers over the years ask about a camera with zoom for the DJI drones and the Z3 certainly delivers on that front. The Z3 has been optimised for still shots, although you can still get fantastic video footage. The 7x zoom on this camera is made up of 3.5x optical and 2x digital lossless zoom giving it a focal length ranging from 22mm to 77mm.

The ability to zoom in and out is a great feature for all users, including hobby photographers as well as professionals. A zoom features gives you the ability to capture close up details while keeping the drone a safe distance away.

4K Camera and Gimbal

The Z3 can shoot video in 4K up to 30fps and 1080p up to 60fps, as well as capture 12MP photos. It features the same 1/2.3 inch sensor found on the Inspire X3 and Phantom 4.

Like all cameras DJI use on their aircraft, the Z3 will have an integrated 3-axis gimbal system. The gimbal will use high-powered, brushless motors to counteract any unwanted movement and keep the camera steady. This enables you to capture extremely smooth and high quality video.

Enhanced Gimbal Motors

Like with all cameras, the movements are a lot faster when zoomed in, which can make it hard to focus. DJI have enhanced and upgraded the yaw motor by designing a reaction wheel, allowing more controlled movement. While zoomed in, your movements will be slower and jolt less, making footage a lot smoother.
