Aerial Mega-Zoom - DJI Announces the Zenmuse Z30 Camera System

DJI has just announced its second Zenmuse integrated zoom camera, the Z30, for use with some of its drones; specifically their Matrice airframes. While they have developed this camera for industrial purposes - inspections of cell towers, windmills, etc. - the 2.13-Megapixel, 30x optical zoom lens camera could be incredibly helpful and fun with other types of aerial photography as well.

This camera has been fully integrated into the DJI Go app, allowing you to zoom and select the point-of-interest with just a touch. The camera features a maximum aperture of f/1.4-4.7, still image capture of up to 5fps, and the ability to record MP4 and MOV video. Your recorded media is recorded on a microSD card of up to 64GB UHS-1.

Pricing is to be announced at a later date. Visit DJI's website to learn more.
