The Zenmuse Z15-GH4 Gimbal and Lightbridge Bundle put together by DJI, provides a way of capturing stabilized aerial video using a Panasonic GH4 camera while relaying a live HD feed to a monitor or mobile device on the ground end. The gimbal is designed to be mounted on larger multi-rotor UAVs such as the DJI S900, S1000, and S1000+. Additionally, the Z15-GH4 is balanced strictly for use with the Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 lens - attaching other lenses may damage the gimbal's servo motors.

DJI Zenmuse Z15-GH4 HD 3-Axis Gimbal for Panasonic GH3/GH4
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.
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
DJI Lightbridge 2.4G Full HD Video Downlink with OSD and Control
The Lightbridge 2.4G Full HD Video Downlink with OSD and Control from DJI is designed to provide a complete FPV wireless relay solution, combining the video downlink, OSD (on screen display) data, and control signal in one system. It features two key components, one for the air end and one for the ground end. The air end component is a module that installs in or on the aircraft and features HDMI and composite video inputs. It also communicates with the flight computer, sending pilot inputs from the radio controller (transmitter) to the flight controller and receiving flight data from the instrumentation for the sake of the OSD. The air end module can also send a control signal to the gimbal for in-flight operation of camera movements.
The ground end component features the form factor of a wireless router. It can be battery powered from an internal 4000 mAh battery that lasts up to 4.5 hours or an external 3S to 6S Li-Po battery, available separately. To operate the aircraft, the system allows you to use your regular 2.4 GHz radio controller and will also receive a gimbal control signal. To view the video feed and OSD overlay you will need an Android mobile device running the Lightbridge app, a free download from DJI. There is a powered USB port on the ground end to connect your mobile device and keep its battery from running down.
Requires Compatible Flight Control System
Lightbridge works with select DJI multi-rotor flight control systems. Compatible flight controllers included: A2, WooKong-M, Naza-M V2, and Phantom 2
HDMI and AV Video Input with Full HD Transmission
The air-end module supports both analog composite and HDMI signals. When using HDMI resolutions of to 1080p at 30 fps can be transmitted
The video link features a latency of approximately 150ms. This makes the system suitable for FPV flying and aerial videography, where real-time feedback is essential
Up to One Mile Wireless Range
The air end module supports a line-of-sight range of up to a mile, depending on environmental conditions and other variables
Note: By law, in the U.S. and many other countries, pilot visual contact with the aircraft must be maintained at all times.
Built-in 2.4G Remote Control Link
Not only does Lightbridge relay video and OSD data back to the ground end, it also provides a way of extending the link between the transmitter (hand-held radio controller) and the aircraft. Plus, the Lightbridge system relays the gimbal control signal
4.5 Hour Battery Life for Ground End
The ground-end features a transceiver that is similar to a Wi-Fi router. It can be wall-powered, but since you will most likely be using it in the field there is also a built-in 4000 mAh battery lasting up to 4.5 hours. The battery can be charged with the supplied AC adapter or a 3S to 6S Li-Po battery
USB 2.0 Port for Mobile Device
The USB port allows your Android smartphone or tablet to communicate with the ground end, and will display video from the camera on the mobile device's screen. Plus the port is powered so you don't have to worry about running down your device's battery. For Android users it is recommended you have Android 4.1.2 or above
The OSD (on screen display) is natively part of the Lightbridge system meaning a separate iOSD module is not required. The OSD supplies telemetry data supplied by the flight computer, including, attitude/relative position, height, distance, horizontal and vertical speed, flight mode, power levels, signal strength, and GPS strength
Up to 8 downlinks can be connected for parallel streaming. Each can work independently without interference as long as proper spacing is maintained between them
A single air system can transmit to multiple ground systems, sending video to multiple screens at once. One ground system will send the control signal while additional ground systems receive the video signal only
Guards against third-party interception of the wireless link or loss of control over the aircraft to a third party. Plus encryption can be setup through the Lightbridge app
