This is the Zenmuse Z15-GH4 Gimbal for the Panasonic GH4 from DJI. It's the next evolution of 3-Axis professional gimbals, and is customized specifically for the Panasonic GH4. 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 Panasonic GH4/GH3
Each Zenmuse is guaranteed to deliver nothing short of the best in camera control and stabilization. The Zenmuse Z15-GH4 is built specifically for the the Panasonic GH4 and GH3, so either camera fits perfectly in the gimbal. The Panasonic GH4 is known for its digital film quality images and small body, making it ideal for aerial cinematography and photography. The Zenmuse Z15-GH4 gimbal connects with your GH4 through a standard HDMI cable, but if you are using a Panasonic GH3 with the gimbal, please use the included GH3 HDMI cable.
Weight is minimized by using a small video output module that allows you to control the camera shutter and other features while transforming the camera’s HDMI signal into a first-person-view AV signal. Wiring has been kept to a minimum to further reduce weight. You can easily switch between HD and AV output. The HD output works perfectly with the DJI Lightbridge digital video downlink,and the AV output works with a 5.8G analog video downlink.
3-Axis Rotation Control
The 3-axis Zenmuse Gimbal system’s creative mechanical design makes controling the camera both intuitive and easy. Its internal slip rings avoid complicated wiring. Both power and signal lines have been integrated into the gimbal’s tubes, resulting in a completely unhindered control axis that offers a maximum yaw of ±360°, pitch of +50°/-140° and a roll of ±40°.
Part of a Total Solution
The Zenmuse Z15-GH4 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.
