3.What applications and what kind of specific scenarios are the Z30 suited for?
The Zenmuse Z30 is built for different industrial applications including traffic law enforcement, equipment and infrastructure inspection, firefighting, and search and rescue. Details are as follows:
Traffic law enforcement: Capture a detailed image of traffic violations from a distance. Tap on the screen and the camera will zoom in to focus on the target vehicle.
Firefighting: Discover sources of ignition from a distance, measure areas on fire, and maintain safe distances when dealing with explosives.
Cell tower inspection: Zoom in on critical structures for a detailed look, eliminating the risk of close quarters flying.
Construction inspection: Pinpoint areas of interest from afar.
4.Is the Zenmuse Z30 compatible with the Inspire series?
No. It is only compatible with the Matrice series, including Matrice 100, Matrice M200 Series, Matrice M200 Series V2, M600 Pro and Matrice 600.

6.Will there be any video shake when using Zenmuse Z30?
When zooming large amounts, micro-movements and aircraft vibration will be magnified, resulting in a slight shake during video capture. However, this will not affect photo capture, therefore long-range zooming is ideal for real-time inspection and photography.
7.What intelligent features does the Zenmuse Z30 support when used with the DJI Matrice 600?
It supports TapZoom, One Key to 1x Image, Defog and more.
