The Zenmuse Z15-5D III (HD) 3-Axis Gimbal for Canon 5D Mark III 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. This "HD" version of the gimbal is compatible with the Lightbridge HD video downlink system and has additional features on top of the regular Zenmuse Z15-5D III.

Featuring ±0.02° control angle accuracy, the Z15-5D III (HD) supports 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 your transmitter (hand-held radio controller), and the receiver must have at least four free channels that can be assigned to gimbal operation.

Each version of the Z15 Gimbal is designed for a specific camera and lens combination. This version is for the Canon 5D Mark III with the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM lens. Additionally, it is specifically balanced for this precise setup. Additions to the camera or lens, such as filters, can increase the weight and alter the weight distribution potentially damaging the gimbal.

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

Compatible Aircraft
The Z15-5D Mark III Gimbal requires a larger multi-rotor UAV aircraft, such as the S1000, S1000+, or S800, 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
Lightbrige Compatibility
Lightbridge support means this gimbal can supply an HD video feed to the Lightbridge Air Unit, which in turn allows and HD signal to be broadcast to a mobile device or field monitor on the ground-end
3-Axis Rotation Control
The control method is designed to be simple and intuitive: the gimbal-assigned transmitter stick has direct control over the relative rotation speed. The design incorporates a tail potentiometer to increase control, stability, and precision, and the internal slip rings avoid needlessly complicated wiring. Both the power and signal lines are integrated into the tubes of the gimbal, which provides unhindered control axes, allowing the gimbal to pan 360°, tilt +15° / -120°, and roll ±25°
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
Built-Independent IMU and IR Modules
The stabilizing algorithm has been upgraded from previous Z15 models, which which helps contribute to a higher precision of control. Because the IMU is built in, the gimbal requires no extra equipment or wiring, reducing weight and allowing you to start shooting faster. The camera's shutter can be controlled remotely by an infrared receiver
