The Zenmuse Z15-5D 3-Axis Gimbal for Canon 5DIII 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 ±0.02° control angle accuracy, the Z15-5D 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.
