Comparison of the Zenmuse H30 series to the Zenmuse H20

Zenmuse H20 is a well-known series of professional cameras that are ideal for many complex applications such as inspections or routine area inspections. On May 16, a new series was premiered Zenmuse H30, which we have already written about in an article under this link and we responded to fAQs. Both series offer the latest technology and advanced technical parameters and features, providing incredible quality image and precision. In this article, we'll examine what makes Zenmuse H30 series cameras stand out from the H20 series, and which model best suits your needs. We will compare the capabilities and parameters of Zenmuse H20 cameras with Zenmuse H30 cameras.

Specification comparison Zenmuse H30 and Zenmuse H20

The latest DJI Zenmuse H30 series stops a new quality, distinguished by several key features. One of the most important improvements in the Zenmuse H30 series is the introduction of the iP54 protection. This means that the device is resistant to dust and water splashes, a unique feature among devices of this type. This allows the Zenmuse H30 to be used in harsh conditions atmospheric. DJI has also increased the controllable range of motion of the gimbal itself, allowing for even more dynamic shots. In addition vibrations have been reduced, which directly translates into the quality of photos and videos. How does the Zenmuse H30 compare to its predecessor, the Zenmuse H20? Let's look at the details.
