Hello,

We've used the Ronin-S with an a7iii and sony af glass before to good success. I recently bought the Ronin-SC and the focus motor blinks red twice while the focus wheel is green. Here's the setup:
  • a7iii - with confirmed correct settings, MF, PC Remote
  • Metabones Adapter - Canon EF Lens to Sony E Mount T Smart Adapter (Mark V)
  • Rokinon 24mm prime (no autofocus or electronics)
  • Focus multi adapter plugged in through USB-C in order to control the focus motor (the extra motor, not the lens)
Here's what I've tried:

  • updating firmware, even holding focus wheel button when booting Ronin to force update mode
  • tried replugging and repatching everything
  • tried pressing all series of buttons on the focus wheel
I've scoured through the forums and google searches and I'm not seeing anyone using a metabones with a dumb lens on the SC. Does this work? Anyone have any ideas on how to troubleshoot?


Thanks

Finally through another forced update mode in another location I got it to work. The update was for the focus motor and after that processed the motor is now working correctly.

Hi Backflip, we apologize for the late response, blinking red twice indicates the Focus Motor error and the firmware needs to be updated, glad to know you have figured it out and have a good time with it.
