Yuneec has launched the E30Z Zoom Camera for its H520 Hexacopter.
The 30x zoom drone camera aims to make it easy to zoom in on distant objects to gain valuable details.
The compact camera housing contains a 1/2.8″ CMOS sensor, which provides high-quality and stabilized recordings even in low light conditions.
Its camera also offers a 6x digital zoom for flexible application options such as inspection, search and rescue operations, monitoring and people search.
E30Z comes equipped with a 30x optical zoom, which can be further enhanced by 6x digital zoom.
The maximum zoom speed from wide-angle to tele is just 2.55 seconds, enabling the user to capture important information in a short amount of time even from a distance.
Specific camera settings such as photography modes or white balance can be adjusted using the ST16S controller’s integrated touch screen. The focusing of the camera is done automatically via autofocus.
Yuneec went on to explain that when using the zoom function of the E30Z, the stabilization of the camera plays a particularly important role.
The integrated 3-axis gimbal automatically compensates slight gusts of wind and drone movements.
It works with ± 0.02° accuracy and produces smooth video recordings as well as sharp photos.
The 360° rotation of the gimbal, with the landing gear of the drone retracted, provides an unrestricted panoramic view.
The manufacturer said that in combination with the Yuneec H520 Hexacopter, the E30Z is suitable for a variety of applications.
