The Zenmuse Z15-GH4 HD 3-Axis Gimbal for Panasonic GH3/GH4 from DJI performs two key functions: keeping the camera level and providing stabilization, thus helping you transform a larger multi-rotor UAV, such as the S1000, into a platform for professional aerial video and aerial photography. Featuring ±0.01° control angle accuracy, the Z15-GH4 features three operation modes; two optimized for aerial video and photo use and one for FPV (first person view) applications. The gimbal is operated using a dedicated stick on the transmitter (hand-held radio controller), and the receiver must have at least four free channels that can be assigned to gimbal operation. Alternatively, a second transmitter can be use by a dedicated camera/gimbal operator.

The gimbal can be used with either the Panasonic GH3 or GH4 camera when paired with the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm f/2.0 lens. It is very important to only use the gimbal with this lens, as other lenses may throw off the balance causing poor performance and potentially damaging the servo motors. On-camera accessories - such as external microphones - should not attached either.

Note: Installation may require soldering. Please see the user manual for your aircraft for installation requirements.

Compatible Aircraft
The Z15-GH4 requires a larger multi-rotor UAV aircraft, such as the S1000, S1000+, or S800 EVO, that has installed either the A2 or WooKong-M flight control system. Depending on the UAV model the Z15 Gimbal is installed in, additional, separately available, electronics and mounting hardware may be required. Apart from the flight control system, the receiver must have at least four open channels, and the transmitter must be programmable to support gimbal operation
3-Axes of Stabilization and Control
For maximum maneuverability, all the wires for power and video signal pass through the tubes of the Gimbal, allowing each axis to rotate without limitation. The Yaw (pan) can achieve full ±360° rotation while the Pitch can tilt the camera +50° / -140°, and the Roll control can cant the camera ±40° - the latter helping keep the horizon level. Additionally, the gimbal features a precision control of ±0.01° making very precise camera movements possible
Supports HD Video Downlink with Lightbridge
When using the Lightbridge system (available separately) is is possible to relay a live HD image to an HDMI monitor or mobile device at the ground end. For analog systems - like the AVL58 - regular composite AV output is also supported
Two-Person Operation Supported
Four spare receiver channels are required on the transmitter to control the gimbal. Alternatively, a second transmitter can be used exclusively for operating the gimbal. This two-operator setup is ideal for video shoots, as the pilot can concentrate on flying while the camera operator can concentrate on framing the shot
Multiple Control Modes
Orientation-locked Control Mode: Keeps the gimbal locked with the aircraft nose direction

Non-Orientation-locked Control Mode: Gimbal point stays the same regardless of which way the nose is pointing

Back to Mid-point Mode (FPV Mode): Centrally locks the gimbal in the direction of the nose. In this mode the leveling and stabilizing functionality of the gimbal is negated
Built-in Independent IMU Module
Integration of the IMU Module helps reduce the amount of wiring required for installation. Plus, the gimbal provides a specially designed and customized video output module
Gimbal Servo Drive Module
Following in the tradition of previous Zenmuse gimbals, the Z15 features high precision control characteristics demanded by professional users. With high precision, low vibration, and high torque characteristics, this module helps provides additional camera stabilization
Windows Assistant Software
Firmware updates, diagnostic testing, and other critical maintenance will require the use of the computer-based Assistant Software. This software requires Windows 8, 7, XP SP3 in 32- or 64-bit versions
HDMI HD/AV Module
If you are using the DJI Lightbridge system you can stream an HD live view image to your mobile device or monitor at the ground end. Plus there us an analog (AV) video output for 5.8 GHz video transmitters like the AVL58
Shuttle Release Control
When using the Lightbrigde system it is possible to remotely trigger the camera's shutter release to take a still photo in flight
