Back in October 2021, DJI introduced the revolutionary Ronin 4D gimbal camera system making a huge splash in the industry with this unique offering.
The innovative system is made up of a core processing unit and a gimbal camera featuring DJI’s flagship Zenmuse X9 sensor and the new DJI CineCore 3.0 image processing system with DCCS (DJI Cinema Color System).
The core cameras can be further built out with a wide variety of additional accessories, depending on your production needs and the environment you are working in.
It seems that the company is taking Ronin 4D support pretty seriously considering that there are two major firmware updates for the system coming in February and June 2022.
Some of the imminent features worth mentioning include mirror control mode and clean video output to the remote monitor, support for more manual lenses for the Zenmuse X9, timecode, slow/fast motion of customizable frame rates support, and more. You can find all details below.
