Drone company Yuneec has launched its new E30Z 30x optical zoom camera for the H520 Hexacopter drone. The camera features a 2.13MP 1/2.8in CMOS sensor capable of capturing 1920 x 1080 video at up to 60fps, as well as JPEG still images. The model features 1/30 – 1/6000s shutter speeds, 100 – 6400 ISO, 30x optical zoom, 6x digital zoom, pan/tilt support and both auto and manual white balance controls.
According to Yuneec, users can fully zoom the E30Z camera in 2.55 seconds. Drone operators get access to the camera’s various settings directly through the ST16S controller’s touch display. As the images show, the E30Z camera features a built-in 3-axis gimbal with 360° rotation support and accuracy of ± 0.02°.
The E30Z is one of the multiple camera models that can be used with the H520 Hexacopter drone, which Yuneec says it built for professionals and industrial purposes. The drone features six rotors that the company says are able to keep the drone stable even in high-wind environments.
The E30Z 30x optical zoom drone camera isn’t yet listed in the Yuneec online store; its price and availability remain unclear. The H20 Hexacopter, meanwhile, is available from Yuneec now in multiple bundle options starting at $3,999.99.
