DJI Zenmuse Z15-5D HD III



The Zenmuse Z15 5D Mark III HD Version is an upgrade version of the Z15 5D Mark III. It can now support both HD and AV outputs. This gimbal is supporting Canon 5D Mark III/Mark II with lens Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM currently. It is suggested to work with our S1000 or any other Octocopter. The Z15‐5D III (HD) is a sophisticated gimbal designed specifically for aerial creativity. Its HD video output port and lightweight design enable you to capture beautiful, stable shots for all of your high‐level projects.

Built for the Canon 5D Mark III The Z15‐5D III (HD) gimbal is built specifically to hold the Canon 5D Mark III camera, giving you stable footage and precise control within ±0.02°. When used with a professional DJI flight system, it keeps your Mark III secure, steady and under control in even the most difficult of flight conditions.


  • 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
