Hi,
I'm wondering if the Focus Wheel on the Ronin-S will possibly get some function options added in future firmware.  As it is, it's useless to me with the Sony A7III, and I've taken it off of the Ronin-S.  I accidentally bumped it, causing the digital zoom to activate, locking me out of the autofocus tracking mode I was using.  
I couldn't figure out any way to disable the Focus Wheel, without removing it.
However, if it could be remapped to Shutter or Aperture, both controllable via remote apps on the Sony A7III, the Focus Wheel would be extremely useful!!
Perhaps in a future firmware update??

Thank you,
Sky Makai

Hi Sky Makai, sorry for the inconvenience caused by the Focus Wheel and appreciate your suggestion, it can be used to control the zoom with the Sony cameras at the moment, if you don't want to use this feature, please disable the 'Digital Zoom' in your camera's settings.
If you would like to control the focus, iris, Focus Motor will need to be used together with the Ronin-S Focus Wheel, thanks for your understanding.

Hi yes, the Focus Wheel will need to be used with Focus Motor together to control the focus and iris, your suggestion will be forwarded to our engineers for consideration.

Thanks, Mindy.  I'm aware of the compatibility as of yet, and that I can disable digital zoom.  Still, this makes the focus wheel useless unless it is used with the focus motor.  I personally do not want/need the focus motor for focus-racking.  

What I do want/need is an easier way to adjust settings on the camera.
I'd really like for the focus wheel to be able to do more, controlling other functions of the camera, including shutter speed, aperture, and ISO.

Sony's API allows apps to control those settings.  So, it makes sense that the Ronin-S should be able to do so.

Great.  I appreciate it and hope the engineers deem this request worthy of their time.  
Making the products more useful in the hands of the user, when possible, should be a high priority.

That's great to hear.  I look forward to progress with updating the options for the Ronin-S.

Is there a way to help the engineering team prioritize new features?

We can only forward your need to them, our engineers will decide if it is necessary to add according to the products' performance and their development plan and the value of this feature.

I appreciate it.  Shooting with the Ronin-S, I continually reach for the Focus Wheel and Joystick, thinking they SHOULD be able to control my camera's ISO/Shutter/Aperture.  It feels natural that the Ronin-S do more than just start/stop record.  Thank you!

Is there a mailing list to be notified?  
Does the Ronin app notify when there's a new firmware update?

This doesn't work so well, because when I accidentally bump the focus wheel, I get an error message that this feature is not enabled in camera, and because the error message pops up, it hides the picture in monitor, eventually making me miss some shots. We really need a way to disable or even better remap the wheel (and its sensitivity) in the DJI Ronin-S app!!...

+1 for this feature! I also took the focus wheel off the Ronin-S. Would be awesome to control the IRIS with it!!! I'm also using it with the Sony a7III.

This is the number one feature I'm missing on the Ronin-S! Please add this feature for all cameras. If you are filming with manual settings (which most of us do) there is no chance to compensate the exposure without reaching to the camera and ruining the shot. I just need the option to change the ISO with the focus wheel. This would be such a great feature!
