I'm using a Nikon Z6 with 24-70 F4 lens mounted and balanced properly on my Ronin SC.  The camera's internal horizon level indicator is just a degree or two off from being completely level.  Is there a way to calibrate the gimbal to compensate for this small degree?  I'm using the most current firmware and iOS app version 1.2.4.  I've tried to use the "hidden" joint angle adjustment in the app, but it doesn't seem to take or do anything.  (I've watched a few people's YouTube videos about that hidden function.)

Hi MrTibb, are you referring to the Roll axis which a bit drifts after recentering the gimbal? If yes, we have added Advanced Calibration feature on v1.1.0.0, please enter the DJI Ronin app, then System Status and select Advanced Calibration to see if it helps (requires DJI Ronin app v1.2.2 or later).

Thanks for the response.  No, it's not drifting after re-centering.  Everything is balanced and centered and calibrated properly.  It's just that when I show my horizon level on my Z6, it isn't perfectly level.  If I could just adjust the roll axis manually by a degree or two, I could get it to be level.  (ie. showing a green line on my Z6 horizon/level display.)

This might be a slight bit of OCD on my part, but I just like to know everything is level. The yellow line would be green if level.

May we verify what calibrations have you done? How about System Calibration and Advanced Calibration? If the issue persists, please provide us the serial number of your device.

Thanks.  I can confirm:

Auto Tune
Balance Test (All axis Excellent)
System Calibration
Advanced Calibration

It still is slightly off, as before.

Serial Number is:

Thanks.  I can confirm:

Auto Tune

This is my current fix/hack. A post it note folded over a couple times for a shim. Not ideal.

same problem: the camera tilts a bit to the right, horizon is not even. with the mavic drone its possible to adjust the horizon very easily, why not with the ronin sc?

No, it hasn't been solved.  I haven't heard anything back from DJI since my earlier posts.

Same problem here.

During autotune and advanced calibration Horizon is spot on on my GH5 (If I lock all axis, everything is level also ), but after that it goes slight off. Toothpick is my shim plate But when I transfer my camera to tripod, everything is tilted again.

It's probably because  the window isn't built level.
