Watch the DJI Ronin-S control focus on a Panasonic GH5

DJI Ronin-S

DJI finally announced price and specs information for its Ronin-S three-axis gimbal this week, which is designed for use with DSLR and mirrorless cameras.

There’s been huge interest in the Ronin-S since it was announced as a development project earlier this year. And one of the long-standing questions filmmakers have wanted to know is, will the focus wheel on the Ronin-S control lenses with internal focus motor.

Photographer Paul Pan posted this short clip demonstrating how it works on his Panasonic GH5.
