DJI Ronin-SC

Ronin-SC

Ronin-SC Firmware update v1.3.0.20 (2019.11.19)

  • Added ability to create a Motionlapse through photo capture during ActiveTrack in the Ronin app. During Motionlapse capture of a faraway subject such as a building, keep the subject in the same position of the frame during the shot (requires Ronin app v1.2.6 or higher).
  • Added parameter saving feature for the Focus Motor. Calibrating the Focus Motor is not required every time it is powered on, unless you have moved the position of the Focus Motor. Make sure to update the latest firmware for both the Focus Motor and Focus Wheel.
  • Added photo capture, video recording, autofocus, and focus pull support for Nikon Z50 cameras with supported Nikkor lenses using the Multi-Camera Control Cable (Type-C) with the Multi-Camera Control Adapter (Type-C to Micro USB). To use autofocus on the Nikon Z50, press halfway down on the gimbal’s camera control button.
  • Added photo capture, video recording, and autofocus for Panasonic G95 cameras using a RSS control cable for Panasonic (RSS-P). To use autofocus on the Panasonic G95, press halfway down on the gimbal’s camera control button.
  • Added support for using PS4 DualShock and Xbox controllers to control the gimbal and camera. Photo capture, video recording, focus, zoom, profile switch, and gimbal movements can be controlled after connecting the controller to the mobile device and gimbal. Enter the Ronin app and select Create, and then open and stay on the Gaming Controller screen when using the PS4 DualShock controller or Xbox controller to control the gimbal. The speed and smoothness of the control sticks can be adjusted. Set the focus value within 10 for optimal performance. iOS 13 or higher, Android 9.0 or higher, and Ronin app v1.2.6 or higher are required.
    • In order to control the gimbal, connect the PS4 DualShock controller or Xbox controller to the mobile device via Bluetooth. Follow the steps below for Bluetooth connection:
    • When using a PS4 DualShock controller,
      • Press and hold the power button and the Share button simultaneously. Release them when the indicator on the controller flashes quickly.
      • Enable Bluetooth on the mobile device and select DualShock controller.
    • When using a Xbox controller,
      • Power on the controller, and press and hold the connect button for three seconds.
      • Enable the Bluetooth in the mobile device and select Xbox controller.
    • Notes:
      • If the gaming controller is connected to a mobile device, press the power button and the controller will automatically connect to the mobile device if the Bluetooth is disconnected. If the gaming controller and the mobile device cannot reconnect, unpair the device on the mobile device and try again.
      • If the PS4 DualShock controller is connected to a mobile device and needs to be connected to a PS4 console, use the USB Cable to reconnect the PS4 controller and the PS4. If the Xbox controller is connected to a mobile device and needs to be reconnected to an Xbox console, use the USB cable or press and hold the power button and the connect button simultaneously to connect the Xbox controller and the Xbox console.
  • Fixed issue: zoom settings on Sony cameras could not be saved after rebooting the gimbal.
  • Fixed issue: focus control failed for Canon EOS series cameras
