This is the Zenmuse Z15-BMPCC Gimbal for the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera from DJI. It's the next evolution of 3-Axis professional gimbals, and is customized specifically for the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera. With multiple control modes, 3-axis rotation control, built-in independent IMU, and a gimbal servo drive module, the Zenmuse Z15 is a total solution for your gimbal needs.
Built for the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera
Each Zenmuse is guaranteed to deliver nothing short of the best in camera control and stabilization. The Zenmuse Z15-BMPCC is built only for the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, known for true digital film quality images through a feature film style 13 stops of dynamic range, Super 16 sensor size, high quality lossless CinemaDNG RAW and Apple ProRes™ recording. All of this is packed into a small body, making the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera ideal for aerial cinematography and photography.
Weight is minimized using a video output module offering camera shutter and other features while transforming the camera’s HDMI signal into an AV signal first person view. Wiring has been kept to a minimum to further reduce weight.
3-Axis Rotation Control
The DJI Zenmuse Z15-BMPCC gimbal represents a breakthrough in Zenmuse precision, offering a control range of just ±0.01°. Used with a DJI A2 professional flight controller and a professional aerial system, it will keep the BMPCC stable and controllable even in strong winds or intense maneuvers.
Part of a Total Solution
The Zenmuse Z15-BMPCC is ideal for the S800 EVO and S1000 flight platform and works with other DJI products including the A2 and WooKong-M multirotor flight controllers. Used with the DJI Lightbridge HD digital video downlink or an iOSD Mark II and a 5.8G video link, it is a complete package for aerial photography and cinematography.
Multiple Control Modes
Three camera control modes are offered to maximize creativity and ease of flight. Orientation-locked, Non Orientation-locked and Back to Mid-point (Horizontal). All three modes can be switched between, quickly and easily in line with the needs of each shoot.
Gimbal Servo Drive Module
The specially designed Gimbal Servo Drive Module gives every Zenmuse it's trademark precision. Each of these is tailored to the weight and balance of the camera it has been designed to move. This significantly improves control and stability, maximizes torque, while minimizing vibration.
Built-In Independent IMU Module
A new stabilizing algorithm provides more stability than ever before, and extremely precise induction devices combine to create effortless attitude control. With these in place, the S1000 needs no extra equipment installation or wiring, making it easier to get shooting faster.
