I had a music video shoot yesterday, and it was paramount that I be able to use the ability of the focus wheel and the record start function for this project. After basic balance and auto tune, the Ronin-S looked like it was ready to go! I could clearly see the focus wheel was operating correctly as I was monitoring focus with the Ninja V with focus peaking. So then, I would start recording for around 30 seconds or so and all was well and then I'd stop recording and all was working as expected. But when I went to record for another take, the record function and focus wheel would no longer work. So I had to turn the Ronin off and back on before it would work again.

For longer takes, where I had successfully started recording with the Ronin, I couldn't stop recording using the Ronin-S record button. While this was happening, I also couldn't use the focus wheel anymore.

I had to power the Ronin-S over 90 times in the course of a 10 hour shoot before I simply lost track!

I have my first wedding of the season on May 18th, and this basic fucntionality for the Ronin-S is really necessary!
