After Sony E, Leica M, and their very own DL-mount, DJI has launched a brand new lens mount unit for the Zenmuse X9 gimbal digicam discovered on the Ronin 4D: L-mount. At launch, this module is appropriate with seven Panasonic and SIGMA lenses, together with 5 prime and two zoom lenses. So let’s take a more in-depth have a look at it!
The DJI Ronin 4D was launched in October 2021 (right here’s our in depth evaluate of it!) and the least we will say is that this artistic device made many waves amongst filmmakers and content material creators! Certainly, this one-of-a-kind hybrid machine is a 4-axis gimbal and a cinema digicam, an all-in-one machine that opens many new artistic prospects.
The high-end Zenmuse X9 digicam constructed into the Ronin 4D includes a full-frame picture sensor, can seize footage as much as 8K at 75 frames per second or 6K at 60fps and has native 800/4000 twin ISO with as much as 9-stops of built-in ND filters. That’s spectacular for such a small digicam, and it was even purported to have the power to document in ProRes RAW internally, a function that by no means noticed the sunshine of the day resulting from “authorized points.” So as a substitute, DJI changed Apple ProRes RAW with Apple ProRes 4444 XQ.
One good factor concerning the Zenmuse X9 is that it includes a user-interchangeable lens mount. At launch, three lens mount items have been obtainable: DL-mount, Leica M and Sony E-Mount. In June 2022, DJI joined the L-Mount Alliance subsequent to Leica, SIGMA and Panasonic. So, no surprises right here, DJI has simply introduced its L-Mount lens mount unit for the DJI Ronin 4D.
