DJI is taking drone photography to the next level with their own, built-in optical camera. That means you can alternate between aerial shots and close ones, taking in the all those awesome details drones couldn’t have recorded before #actionmagic
Zenmuse Z3 uses a 1/2.3-inch sensor and a 3.5X optical zoom lens, to which DJI adds a 2X digital zoom. Now, you’re probably wondering how in the world are you going to stabilize the overall result, since zooming in accentuates camera shake?!
Well, the company seems to have helped in that matter quite a bit, by tweaking the gimbal. That’s not to say you can record amazing clips using full zoom, as DJI strongly recommends you stick to stills…
If you already own a drone from the company, you’ll be able to get the camera with optical zoom separately, at a steep price: $899. Think really carefully if you’re investment will pay off.
