Focus wheel zooms instead of pulling focus on my Sony A7iii

So I was very excited to try the focus pull feature on the ronin s after watching a lot of videos.

I updated my Sony A7iii to version 3.10 (latest firmware as of today) and my Ronin S to version 2.1.1.0 (latest firmware as of today).

I balanced the gimbal, put on my lens, turned off auto focus only to find out that the focus wheel is zooming in instead of pulling focus.

Can someone please help me. This is urgent. I have a shoot next week and need to get this fixed before that!

I had to get the MCC-C USB C cable. If you have the MCC-Multi, focus pulling will not work. Also, the AF/MF switch my FE 1.8  85mm needed to be set to AF. Good luck.

Hi chilledinlife, may we verify which cable are you connecting? If you would like the pulling focus function, please connect with the MCC-C cable, and then make sure the settings are correct. Sony A7 iii.png

So you want to use the focus motor, correct and not the focus wheel!

To change from zoom to focus you need to change cables, if memory serves correct, give it a try. All are in the box.

Thank you it works with the sony cable suddenly. But why is there not a way to choose between the 2 modes directly on the application with the same cable?

Hello Mindy or anybody at DJI. Somebody know if there is a fix, an update or a workaround being developped for this issue between focus pulling vs zoom with the MCC-multi cable?
Pulling focus without an external monitor OR not being able to pull focus with an external monitor is a huge bummer.
