DJI's Zenmuse Z3 is its first drone camera with optical zoom
It might be best known for its drones, but the launch of DJI's first camera optimized for aerial stills shows the company has ambitions beyond super-slick video footage. To achieve its ends, the Zenmuse Z3 offers up a 7x zoom by pairing a 3.5x optical zoom with a 2x digital zoom. As with the rest of the Zenmuse line, the camera's main functionality is integrated into the main DJI GO app, allowing you to swipe to to zoom in and out, for example. Previously, if you wanted to zoom in using a drone, you needed to fly it closer. And yes, it can still be used as a live video feed while you're flying.
