DJI Zenmuse P1



Fully compatible with the DJI Matrice 300 RTK, the Zenmuse P1 integrates a full-frame sensor with interchangeable fixed-focus lenses on a 3-axis stabilised gimbal. The sensor is designed specifically for photogrammetry flight missions, making it the ideal tool for aggregates, construction, waste management and general surveying operations. The Zenmuse P1 – coupled with the Matrice 300 – takes efficiency and accuracy to a whole new level.

Headline Features of the DJI Zenmuse P1


The Zenmuse P1 includes a full-frame, low-noise, high-sensitivity sensor that can take a photo every 0.7 seconds during the flight, enabling output of up to 3 km in a single flight.


Equipped with a global mechanical shutter and the all-new TimeSync 2.0 system, which synchronises time across modules at the microsecond level, the Zenmuse P1 lets users capture highly accurate data combined with real-time position and orientation compensation technology.


With the Zenmuse P1, its integrated 3-axis gimbal and Smart Oblique Capture feature, you can create exceptional 2D and 3D reconstructions and detailed point-clouds. The Zenmuse P1 can be fitted with 24, 35, or 50mm lenses depending on the use case.

Developed and built for


Built for tasks that involve photogrammetry, the P1 is the ideal partner for the M300 RTK in a quarry or mining operation.


Building on the positioning accuracy achievable with the M300 RTK, this combination is the ideal fit for aerial surveying tasks.

Waste Management

The impressive image quality from the P1 means that it is the perfect tool for surveying landfill sites.

The following formats are supported:

Videos: MP4,MOV

Which lenses does the Zenmuse P1 support?

The P1 supports 24mm, 35mm and 50mm lenses with DL mounts.

What is 'Smart Oblique Capture'?

The feature allows photos to be taken at multiple angles during a flight by way of automatic payload control. All the nadir & oblique photos necessary for 3D reconstruction can be acquired through one single flight path. During a Smart Oblique Capture operation, the aircraft will fly in the mode with the highest operational efficiency. The flying speed will also be adjusted according to the different oblique capture sequence for each flight path section to maximise the efficiency of the operation.
