DJI has shared some information relating to its Ronin 4D ecosystem: Not solely will the gimbal stabilizer get assist for Apple ProRes 4444 XQ recording later this 12 months, however the firm can also be becoming a member of the L-Mount Alliance. This leads to a brand new native L-Mount for the Zenmuse X9 gimbal digital camera. Final however not least, the corporate can also be introducing a brand new extension cable for the Ronin 4D that enables the gimbal to be indifferent from the remainder of the machine.
Because the promised addition of inner ProRes RAW assist for the Ronin 4D stabilization system didn’t materialize earlier this 12 months (article right here), DJI apparently wished to supply its customers one thing totally different as an alternative.
ProRes 4444 XQ is the very best high quality degree of the ProRes household and shall be applied within the Ronin 4D by August this 12 months.
Additionally new is the so-called Zenmuse X9 Extension Cable: It lets you function the Zenmuse X9 gimbal digital camera individually from the primary physique of the Ronin 4D. This may be useful for tight units and/or advanced pictures. Simply bear in mind that the Z-axis is gone on this setup, as it’s a part of the primary physique.
Though this reduces the scale when solely the digital camera and a 3-axis gimbal are wanted, I don’t actually perceive the benefit. In any case, the primary physique nonetheless must be lugged round. Perhaps the brand new DJI RS3 (Professional) can be higher fitted to such purposes?
DJI joins the L-Mount Alliance
DJI additionally introduced that they formally be part of the L-Mount Alliance, based by Sigma, Leica and Panasonic. As a primary outcome, the corporate has launched a local L-Mount for the Zenmuse X9 gimbal digital camera. So customers can now advantage of native Leica, Sigma and Panasonic L-Mount glass.
