For industrial UAV operators one of the greatest challenges is flying close enough for a thorough inspection while still maintaining a safe distance from their subject. The Zenmuse Z30 is DJI’s most powerful long-range aerial zoom lens engineered for industrial applications. The camera platform offers up to 30x optical and 6x digital zoom. Due to the powerful long-range aerial capabilities and HD 1080p photo and video potential this equipment has to offer. This allows our operators to quickly father the information that we need and with the new Zenmuse Z30 we have access to a fast flexible tool that can capture the smallest details of the assets we are inspecting whilst maintaining a safe distance between the drones and the structures. This reduces operational risks by keeping all personal safely on the ground. Industrial UAV Inspections.

I like that you said that it’s important to plan ahead. All aerial film groups should try to follow all the laws and be conscientious of the people around them, in my opinion. I also think that it is smart to look at other groups’ work.
