DJI Zenmuse X3 overview

  • 1Description

The Zenmuse X3 Gimbal and Camera Unit from DJI features the same 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal that is included with ready-to-fly versions of the Inspire 1 quadcopter. It can be used with Inspire 1 – mounting toolessly – or works with the Osmo Handle Kit. The Osmo Handle Kit is a separately available handgrip that converts the Gimbal and Camera Unit into a stabilized handheld camera system for use closer to the ground. The gimbal and camera both power from the aircraft flight battery or from a battery that goes with the Handle Kit.

Inspire 1 4K Camera
The Inspire 1 Camera shoots 4K video at 24p and 30p, and can shoot HD video frame rates from 24p to 60p. It features a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor with a 94-degree field of view (FOV) lens. This field of view works out to about 20mm in 35mm equivalent, which gives you a wide but not extremely wide or fisheye framing - while not as immersive as a fisheye, this FOV features less distortion and gives the subject more emphasis
3-Axis Brushless Motor Gimbal
The camera is mounted via an integrated 3-axis gimbal which uses brushless servo motors to keep the shot stable and the horizon level. The camera pans a full 360-degrees so that no matter which way the quadcopter turns, the camera can remain locked on the subject. Manual panning and tilting can be affected using controls on the transmitter

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zen muse X3 Gimbal and Camera I'm trying this out with the OSMO...I recently got the Phantom 4 Quadcopter and may want to move up to the bigger and better Quads and wanted to see if there's much difference in the quality...so far, I like being able to have manual control over exposure...
