(Android, iOS) Pix4Dcapture and DJI Zenmuse XT

Officially supported DJI Drones

Pix4Dcapture officially supports DJI's Zenmuse XT for the following drones:

  • DJI Inspire 1
  • DJI Matrice 100
  • DJI Matrice 200
  • DJI Matrice 210 (RTK)
  • DJI Matrice 600

Before flying

There are several factors that are unique to capturing and processing DJI XT images that you must consider before you fly:

  • Image format: You must set the default image format to .jpeg via the drone manufacturer's original mobile application to ensure that you capture R-JPG images.

  • Image resolution: You must capture Zenmuse XT images at the highest resolution. You can change the camera's default image resolution via the drone manufacturer's original mobile application.

  • Focal length: You must account for image overlap if your camera lens' focal length is not 9 mm. Pix4Dcapture optimizes missions for a 9 mm lens when capturing images with a Zenmuse XT.

    • You must increase the Pix4Dcapture mission's image overlap settings to account for the narrower field of view of your Zenmuse XT lens if it has a focal length that is greater than 9 mm.

    • We do not recommend it, but you can decrease the Pix4Dcapture mission's image overlap settings to account for the wider field of view of your Zenmuse XT lens if it has a focal length that is less than 9 mm.

  • Image source: Do not extract frames from a video. Zenmuse XT images must be captured as R-JPG to ensure that you acquire the most accurate results possible. Learn more about processing thermal images: 360000173463.
