Zoom Controls

  • Updated

Control zoom manually in the Flight Dashboard, or use automated commands in missions.

Zoom controls and commands are only supported on drones and cameras that have zoom capabilities. Check the spec sheet or DJI app for your drone camera. If you don't see any zoom controls in the DJI app, you know it will not support zoom for those settings.

There are 2 different zoom command types that depend on the drone / camera and camera settings.

    • Camera Zoom Percent - if you see a slider in the DJI app, you can set any percentage.
