DJI's first four-axis movie camera Ronin 4D is officially released

DJI Innovations today launched its first four-axis movie camera DJI Ronin 4D. According to the official information, Ronin 4D is an integrated film-level shooting solution that integrates a film-level imaging system, a four-axis pan/tilt system, a LiDAR laser follow focus system, and a wireless image transmission control system. Personal creators provide easy-to-use creative tools at your fingertips and bring a more efficient shooting experience.

Flagship Zenmuse X9 imaging system

Ronin 4D is equipped with DJI’s latest full-frame flagship camera Zenmuse X9 and is available in X9-8K and X9-6K versions. X9-8K supports up to 8K/75fps specifications, and X9-6K supports up to 6K/60fps and 4K/ 120fps video recording. With the help of DJI's self-developed image chip and the new image processing platform CineCore 3.0, both X9 cameras can directly record Apple ProRes RAW / ProRes 422 HQ / H.264 video, bringing more post-production space for professional creation.

X9 supports dual native ISO (X9-8K: 800/4000; X9-6K: 800/5000), which can cover 14+ files of dynamic range, even in complex light scenes such as sunset backlighting and direct sunlight The light and dark transition. Cooperating with DJI Cinema Color System (DCCS), can help Ronin 4D to accurately restore colors under complex light. Not only that, Zenmuse X9 supports ACES standard workflow, which can be easily matched with other movie cameras to ensure that the pictures shot by different devices show consistent color styles.

X9 adopts a replaceable bayonet design, which not only supports the DL bayonet independently developed by DJI but also supports the Leica M bayonet. The existing ultra-wide-angle, F0.95 ultra-large aperture, motorized optical zoom, macro, anamorphic widescreen, and other lenses on these mounts can all be used on the X9, and the creator can freely choose according to the shooting needs.

For the convenience of users, Zenmuse X9 has built-in 9 levels of ND filters (ND 2 to ND 512, or ND 0.3 to ND 2.7). With the help of a motor drive system, it can be highlighted through the touch screen or control handle of the monitor The button on the switch quickly. In addition, this set of filters has been specially designed to fully match the color science of Ronin 4D.

Four-axis pan/tilt system

Ronin 4D is equipped with a four-axis gimbal system, adding a fourth axis to the traditional three-axis gimbal, only the sensors and optical components necessary for imaging are embedded in the gimbal, completing the combination of a professional gimbal and a movie-grade camera The concept of “One” achieves the best stability and response performance of the Ronin series so far while ensuring ultra-lightweight. In sports mode, the camera can follow the photographer's rapid swing with almost zero error, and it can seamlessly switch between sports mode and stabilization mode.

Thanks to computer vision and deep learning technology, as well as the powerful computing power of CineCore 3.0, Smart Follow Pro can significantly increase the filming rate, and it can continue to track the subject even at a long distance. Not only can the composition be adjusted at any time during the following process, but it also supports full focus tracking to ensure that the subject is clear and stable.

LiDAR Laser Follow Focus System

DJI Ronin 4D uses a laser focus solution, which can project 43,200 ranging points through the LiDAR rangefinder, and the detection distance can reach 10 meters. Compared with the phase focus technology, the laser focus system does not damage the image quality, but also It can focus faster without relying on the texture of the object, and can accurately locate the subject in low-light environments. Even if the subject has severe motion blur, Ronin 4D can quickly achieve focus. When used with a follow focus motor, even a manual lens can easily achieve automatic follow focus. After turning on the Smart Follow Pro function, you can also achieve continuous focus on the subject, and single-person shooting can also be done easily.

Ronin 4D is also equipped with a visual auxiliary to follow focus system, which can project the ranging point data on the fuselage monitor and the image transmission monitor in real-time in the form of a top view. The photographer can quickly locate and accurately through the novel and intuitive LiDAR oscilloscope. Track the focus; even if you don't have rich follow focus experience, you can get started in a short time.

In response to the need for flexible adjustment of focus in movie creation, Ronin 4D also has a manual-automatic integration mode, which can bring the precision and flexibility of manual focusing on the basis of automatic focusing. When the focus moves, the focus wheel also rotates synchronously, and the photographer can manually intervene to adjust the focus at any time according to creative needs.

Wireless video transmission control system

Ronin 4D adopts the new O3 Pro image transmission technology. The effective transmission distance of image transmission can reach up to 6 kilometers. The DFS frequency band is added to the 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz frequency bands, and it supports the AES 256-bit encryption algorithm. The 1080p/60fps full HD picture is output to multiple video transmission high-brightness monitors at the same time, and the safety, stability, and anti-interference ability are greatly improved.

The video transmission highlight monitor combines a video transmission receiver and a monitor into one. It is equipped with a 7-inch wide color gamut touch screen with a brightness of up to 1500 nits, and can output dual-channel signals of HDMI and SDI through the expansion module. It supports one-transmit and multiple-receive of video and audio. It has two transmission modes: broadcast mode and control mode. The broadcast mode does not limit the number of receivers, which can meet the monitoring needs of large teams and departments, while the control mode supports two transmission modes. Cooperative operation of the receiving end. The video transmission highlight monitor has a built-in microSD card slot, and supports up to independent recording of 1080p/60fps video transmission stream. When multiple screens are monitored at the same time, each monitoring screen can be independently played back on demand, and the monitoring images of other screens are not affected.

The video transmission highlight monitor can be used with the body control handle, DJI Master Wheel, DJI Motion Controller or the new DJI three-channel follow focus device to achieve remote follow focus, high-precision gimbal control, start-stop recording, and camera parameter adjustment And other functions, fully meet the shooting needs of professional teams. In addition, the monitor also has a built-in gyroscope sensor, which can independently be used as a motion sensing controller to remotely control the Ronin 4D gimbal.

IT Home has learned that DJI Ronin 4D is available in 6K and 8K versions. The 6K package is priced at 46,888 yuan , including body, Zenmuse X9-6K gimbal camera, LiDAR rangefinder, and body highlight monitor. , Control handle and handle, TB 50 smart battery and other related accessories. Compared with the 6K version, the 8K package is equipped with Zenmuse X9-8K gimbal camera, and additionally includes PROSSD 1TB, priced at 74888 yuan . The 6K version will be on sale in DJI's official mall and related channels in December, and the 8K version will also be on sale later.
