Aerial platforms are rapidly becoming vital tools for businesses looking to more efficiently collect information crucial to their operations. As the first integrated aerial camera with an optical zoom up to 30x and digital up to 6x, the 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.
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.
With TapZoom, precise collection of visual data is as easy as tapping your finger to point the camera at the subject of your inspection. The Zenmuse Z30 automatically adjusts its focal length to give you an enlarged view, making the most minute of details visible in just seconds.
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.

What drone can I use the DJI Zenmuse Z30 with?
You are able to use the Zenmuse Z30 Optical Zoom Camera with the DJI Matrice 600 and Matrice 100.
How can I use DJI Zenmuse Z30 to inspect cell phone towers?
Instead of hoisting up to inspect cell phone towers, an aerial platform equipped with the Zenmuse Z30 allows you to quickly and efficiently conduct your inspection from afar.
While flying the Zenmuse Z30 equipped airframe, an on-site pilot is able to livestream their findings to engineers located anywhere in the world. With live communication, both engineers and pilots can work towards identifying any concerns for fastest possible inspection.
With the extended range, the Zenmuse Z30 equipped airframe is able to operate well beyond the threat range of cell phone towers’ electromagnetic fields, ensuring high flight safety.
Take advantage of DJI GO’s Intelligent Flight Modes like Point of Interest to easily set up your system to circle a cell phone tower at a constant radius while keeping it locked in the frame. Once set, focus on directing the camera and controlling zoom level to capture image data or perform a real-time inspection.
How Can I use DJI Zenmuse Z30 to carry out wind turbine inspection?
When performing wind turbine inspections, the challenge is to get close enough to the structure to be able to see the sometimes millimeter-sized damages that threaten to reduce the performance of the propeller.
With regular wide angle cameras, you may need to get as close as one meter from the turbine to be able to make out the details, posing a very real risk of crashing into the turbine, damaging both it and the platform.
By using the Zenmuse Z30, you are able to keep the distance from the turbine and still see the condition of the most vital parts of the turbine in incredible detail. As sudden gusts of wind in these areas may affect the aircraft’s navigation, being able to inspect from a distance gives pilots a larger margin of error and helps them avoid collisions.
With advanced tracking features, the difficulty of simultaneously flying the aircraft and operating the camera is eliminated as the turbine is automatically kept centered in the frame. With Point of Interest, you can even set up the aircraft to circle the turbine at a constant radius while continuously seeing it in your live HD view.
How does the DJI Zenmuse Z30 help firefighting?
Firefighters depend on having accurate information to base their operations on. By using an airframe equipped with the Zenmuse Z30, rescue teams are able to significantly increase speed of operation and the quality of data collected.
At its standard focal length, the Z30’s wide angle provides an overview of a scene. When a detailed view is needed, TapZoom lets operators instantly zoom in to drill down on an area of interest.
The Z30’s powerful 30x optical zoom enable operators to pick out details more quickly, thereby improving both speed of our data collection and the fidelity of that data.
A high-powered zoom means that any movement in the system is magnified, so therefore 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.
