Default URGENT S1000 / Z15 5D HELP NEEDED*

We've been flying an S1000 with the Z15 5D successfully for a few months w/o any issues of any kind.

Seemingly for no reason, the Z15 stopped communicating with the Cannon 5D. The camera settings are exactly to spec for DJI use and the machine is otherwise unchanged. However, the 5D scene goes black when the USB from the Z15 is plugged in, and, the VxT does not receive a signal to transmit. There is no difference in outcome when different components are plugged in or powered up in different order. My partner is a pro photographer and has "factory reset" the 5D to rule out some form of setting oversight. Also, we tested a separate identical 5D with the same results, thus ruling out the camera itself.

The Z15 otherwise physically performs perfectly. The shutter control also works in its current state, so the IR LED is functioning on the Z15.


Can anyone think of think of something else to assess ?!

Thank you!

I would try and swap out the HDMI cable. They are pretty fragile and after months of active use could be damaged.

THERE IS NO HDMI CABLE

The DJI Z15 5D for Cannon Mark III uses a USB (10pin) cable. (A $3000.00 gimbal that doesn't support HD BTW).

It does with the 5D HD gimbal. My suggestion still stands. Have you tried to swap cables?
