The Ronin 4D Flex enables flexible and efficient camera work. For one-operation shooting, the X9 gimbal camera can be detached from the Ronin 4D body, reducing the handheld weight of the Ronin 4D to just 1.8kg. Even in scenes with a lot of movement such as event shooting and documentary shooting, it is possible to easily shoot for a long time without getting tired.
The X9 gimbal camera can also be mounted on a variety of rigs to capture cinema-level footage, even in shots that require dynamic movement, such as driving through tight spaces like inside a car, which were previously difficult or impossible. It is possible now, with this camera.
The 2m ultra-fine coaxial cable that connects the Ronin 4D Flex and Ronin 4D main unit supports lossless transmission of up to 8K video. High-speed signals are instantly transmitted from the camera sensor to the main unit, and control signals and monitor signals can also be transmitted in real time. With this solid cable connection, the 4D Flex gives you more flexibility in positioning your camera, even when shooting in tight spaces. In addition, the Zenmuse X9 gimbal camera can also be used as a small cinema-grade remote head.
Ronin 4D Flex is compatible with the Ronin ecosystem. The Ronin 4D Flex is fully compatible with the Ronin 4D’s hand grip and main monitor, providing filmmaking solutions including cinematic video imaging, 3-axis stabilization, LiDAR focus control, and professional monitoring and control experiences. can be provided to This will bring a shooting experience with current high convenience and efficiency.
A configuration using the Flex and a configuration using only the Ronin 4D can be quickly switched on-site without tools, making it useful in a wide range of shooting situations. For fixed shots, the included pan axis quick lock can be attached to the 4D Flex to accommodate a wider variety of payloads, including telephoto lenses, cinema zoom lenses, anamorphic lenses, and more to suit the scene you’re facing. You can freely choose the lens.
DJI’s first cinema zoom lens will also be released at the same time. The DL PZ 17-28mm T3.0 lens is DJI’s first cinema-grade zoom lens. Accurate back focus control and native system calibration enable precise control in any mode: autofocus, manual focus, and automatic manual focus (AMF). When this lens is attached to the Zenmuse X9, it is possible to shoot in ultra-high definition from the center to the edges, and the shortest focusing distance is 0.19m, which covers the focal length from ultra-wide to wide-angle.
The DL PZ 17-28mm T3.0 lens, whose body is made of magnesium and aluminum alloy, weighs about 520g, making it the perfect lens for the X9 gimbal camera in terms of both size and weight. A servo zoom motor is built into the lens for smooth and stable zooming. No external focus motor attached or lens calibration required. The DL PZ 17-28mm lens does not require rebalancing because the size of the lens itself does not change when you adjust the zoom.
DJI Senior Product Line Manager Paul Pan commented:
The Ronin 4D sets new standards in terms of versatility, image quality and image consistency, redefining what is possible with just one cinema camera. The newly announced Ronin 4D Flex and DL PZ 17-28mm lens expands the capabilities of this filming platform, allowing filmmakers to capture footage in a whole new way. These products will continue to expand the possibilities of DJI Pro.
