Hi,

I know that the Ronin S is not compatible with Fujifilm mirrorless cameras (like the XT series). Howerver I noticed that DJI sells a cable for Blackmagic Cinema Camera that has a 2.5mm plug just like the Canon E3 or Fujifilm Remote Release.

Is the RSS Control Cable for BMCC able to trigger the shutter on a Fujifilm XT3 when plugged into a Ronin S?

It dose not work... I tried it with an X-T2. I also tried the Ronin-MX/S RSS Control Cable for Panasonic it did not work either.

Thanks @jerttyG. I have to confess I'm really sad! I was really leaning towards the Ronin S. It seems that I'll have to look into Zhiyun offerings.

The new firmware will be released recently but compatibility between Fujifilm XT3 and Ronin-S will be delayed for some reasons, but we are working on it, please bear with us, thank you.

@DJI Mindy

I am still in the market for a Gimbal and have high hopes that dji will finally support Fuji.  
But do you have more specific information regarding Fuji support?
- Will X-T2, X-H1 be supported?
- What functions will be supported (all or a subset)?
- About when will the firmware update/functionality for Fuji be available?
- Will this require another cable (and when would that be available)?

Thank you for your time!
Tom

Hi Tom, we appreciate your interest in Ronin-S, we only know our engineers are working on making Ronin-S to be compatible with Fuji, but no more details at the moment, sorry that we are unable to answer your questions above. We will update the details via the release notes and also make the announcement in the Forum, appreciate your understanding and patience.

I wonder why hasn't DJI already produced a cable RSS to 2.5 mm following both the Canon and Fuji plug and signaling. I can use my Canon remote shutter on my X-T3 directly and without issues. So if DJI had released a RSS to 2.5mm early on, it would at least cover the need for timelapse. It could then develop a multi control cable for Fuji if the market required it. Now what is happening is that we have zero control over the shutter of a Fuji camera with DJI gimbals.

I still haven't made up my mind in regards to the gimbal I will buy, but this long wait for releasing a simple RSS to 2.5mm cable is so awkward, that it just adds to my doubts on the ability of DJI to fulfill their commitments. Note that a 2.5mm requires no knowledge of complex signaling the likes of a USB-C on a proprietary camera, the 2.5 mm cable is supported by several camera manufacturers.

I made my first post on February 25, its April 29 and still no solution is provided by DJI for a simple shutter release cable!

As of an hour ago I'm a happy user of a Ronin S. Also waiting for a Ronin S - Fuji X-T3 solution!

Hi Beriadan. Congrats on the Ronin S :-)

I've also ended up buying the Ronin S. Now lets see if DJI will deliver and when. I almost bought a Moza Air 2, and their product has some quite interesting features that I really like:
1) Quick release does not require rebalancing
2) The lock and speed settings for all axis can be setup on the gimbal itself without the need of a mobile device and app.
3) There is a manual switch for roll lock that allows for better storing and transporting, as well for balancing

@DJI

This has been such a major disappointment with the Ronin S, as after a year your engineers cant figure out how to make an RSS to 2.5mm shutter release cable.

I have an older Canon 600D that I want to use for time-lapse, motion-lapse and panoramas, but the RSS to IR cable workaround requires a 10sec interval between shots.

This doesn't seem like a difficult or unreasonable request, to make a simple RSS to 2.5mm cable that would make these advanced features work on pretty much all camera makes and models.

Is this product in the pipeline or being worked on by your engineers?  Otherwise I will be selling my Ronin S
