Plain and simple ... gone are the days of shaky, unstable footage! Whether you are shooting a movie or commercial, or performing a search and rescue mission, shaky footage is the number one problem plaguing the aerial photography industry. After all, what good is a view from the sky if it’s unusable? Through the use of 3-axis gyros, inertial measurement unit feedback, and special 3-DOF servo drive modules, the Zenmuse line of camera gimbals achieve sub-pixel stabilization. This performance was previously only achieved in the most expensive full-scale helicopter gimbals; most of which cost upwards of $500,000. Now, for less than 1% of that cost, you can achieve perfectly stable footage every flight…even in windy conditions!
Zenmuse gimbal with the specified camera mounted has to be combined with DJI professional autopilot system. DJI Multi-rotor Aerial Photography Platform—Spreading Wings S800 is recommended to gain the best aerial photography effect, due to advanced aircraft attitude stability control and well-rounded reliable flight platform.
The Spreading Wings S800 hex-rotor platform and Zenmuse Z15 gimbal are a perfect match. The highly integrated and electrical integration of patented dismountable design, and the modular structure design which is very convenience for future upgrading, all these makes them a perfect match for your aerial photography.
The most advance DJI UAV autopilot system offers the precision, stability and safety aircraft operation. In addition with 2/3 axis high-precise and high-speed attitude-stabilized gimbal of DJI original creation, and multi-functional ground station control terminal, we can assure you to take photos and videos with best quality.
3-Axis High-End Outstanding Gimbal:
DJI Zenmuse Gimbal is a milestone gimbal system which is developed for professional filming, aerial photography for commercial use. Even if aircrafts are in a fast-speed flight, it can still stabilize and control the camera equipment precisely with highest stability. The precision of control angle is within the range of ±0.05°, so picture or video output can reach the best effect.
Gimbal Design Customized for Different Cameras:
In order to make the gimbal function the best, DJI provides the customized Gimbal according to the types of camera. For example, the Zenmuse Z15 supports two types of camera, which are Sony Nex5/7 and Panasonic GH2. One type of Gimbal can only support one serial of camera. When users want to use a different series of camera, they need purchase the additional accessories related.
Multiple Control Modes:
Zenmuse gimbal system has three types of control modes, which are Orientation-locked control mode, Non Orientation-locked control mode and Back to Mid-point mode (Horizontal mode). The three types of modes can be switched quickly from one mode to another to meet the different requirements of aerial photography. With the perfect mode and easy operation of the stable 3-axis Zenmuse gimbal, users can take excellent aerial works.
3-Axis Rotation Angle Unlimited:
The 3-axis Zenmuse gimbal system has creative design for its mechanical structure design. The slip rings inside avoid the complicated wiring. All the wires of the power and signal lines are integrated into pipes of the Gimbal, which makes the axis can rotate without any limitation. The Yaw control could reach ±360°, the Pitch control could reach ±360° and the Roll control could reach ±40° (±360° mechanic continuous rotation).
Built-In Independent IMU Module:
Due to DJI years UAV autopilot system achievement into perfect attitude-stabilized algorithm, together with the high-precise induction device, it can have perfect performance on attitude control. Without the requirement of extra installation and connection of extra wires, it is easy to assemble and it can maintain stable when flying.
Independent Gimbal Controller:
The separated controller equipped to gimbal is connected by the CAN wires with the main controller of DJI autopilot system. According to gimbal attitude feedback, it can control the rotation directions and angles high precisely and also communicate and get real-time control orders from the main controller of autopilot system.
DJI Gimbal Special Servos Drive Module:
DJI Customized Gimbal Special Servos Drive Module meets all the control requirements of high performance Zenmuse gimbal. With high precision, low vibration, high torque characters, DJI Gimbal Special Servos Drive Module is an excellent combination of drive and module.
In order to minimize the payload of aircraft, the video output module with expanded features like camera shutter is customized to transform HDMI signal to AV in neat wiring, which ensure the smooth and free movement of the 3 axial Gimbal.
S-Bus Receiver Support:
It supports most of transmitters and receivers in the market. At the meantime, it provides Futaba S-Bus receiver support and it is user-friendly.
3-Axis Rotation Speed Controlled:
Zenmuse Gimbal 3-axis rotation controlling function is simple and easy to apply. Stick range corresponds with rotation speed of gimbal axis. Excellent control algorithm guarantee high precision performance of the axis rotation. Zenmuse gimbal rotation speed will not be influenced even when the aircraft is in high-speed spinning or quick lifting.
