I just purchased a Nikon Z6 II. Will eventually work for Ronin-S like the original Z6?

I'll be testing the Z6II I get on Tuesday with my RS 2 and then the Z7II a month later for compatibility which I doubt will be fluid until a FW update is in place. I am keeping one Z6 until I am 100% certain of compatibility. Always good to play it safe when your job is on the line...

I got my Z6II today and can confirm it does not work properly with the RS 2. It will focus, connect fine but a record logo with a slash appears on screen. It will also not work with Raveneye, that turns red once all powered up and properly connected.

I'm glad I held on to a Z6, it works perfect with that and I can wait out the FW update.

Just adding to list of users requesting support for the Z6 II. I had assumed that the Z6 compatibility would apply to the Z6 II, but I was wrong. I suspect this is not an API change per se, but a simple model or version check in the RS 2 firmware that is failing with the newer iteration of the Nikon Z camera. I understand that software change and validation takes time, but hopefully the adoption of the Z6 II is quick...

I also got my Z 6II two days ago and the RSC 2 today. Although cable connection does indicate that a camera is plugged in, the controls do not work properly with the Z 6II. E..g. In the Ronin iOS app it shows aperture, iso and shutter speed, the interface even lets it change it. But it does not change on the Z6II.

Once for a couple of minutes I was able to change the camera ISO with the RSC‘s index finger wheel, but without changing anything this stopped working.

So very poor experience overall. Will have to operate the Z6II directly for now. Hoping for a firmware update.

Adding myself to the queue of DJI Ronin RS 2 users with Nikon Z6 II who'd like at least the shutter/recording button support added to the new FW.
Thanks DJI!

I bet they are waiting until the release of the Z7II which they should do. I have a Z6II now and a Z7II on order that is to start shipping first week of December so that is the realistic timeline for the FW update I would imagine.

If you are a full time working content creator like I am, then you saw the writing on the wall like I did and held onto at least one Z6 or Z7 in order to get right to work with the new RS 2 / RSC 2....or at least I hope you did.

Man, this is such a bummer. I also assumed Z6 would mean Z6 II. Silly me, should have learned from past experiences that DJI wouldn't really be on the ball here

Please make a firmware update as soon as possible. Many people cannot use their setup.
Jobs are at risk. Thhis is really not acceptable!

I too have a problem, nikon z6ii, ronin sc2, both fresh out of the box.
Plug in usb-c cable to rss and to camera.
Set disp lever to movie, set mode to P, turn on camera.
Red button on gimbal does not auto focus, does not start or stop video. It does take a snapshot if pressed and held.
The movie monitor rec icon has a line through it.
No explanation in nikon online manual, just 'cannot record movie'.
If I unplug cable from camera, I can record from camera movie button, reconnect cable and 'no record' icon appears.
Just about fed up enough to send the gimbal back !
I am wondering if this problem is because the Nikon Z6II is a new model.
And if so, when DJI will release a firmware update for the Nikon Z6II and Z7II.

Latest firmware for Ronin-S is V2.3.1.20 released 2020.06.10

Here's what gets me about DJI.
The RONIN-S was available BEFORE the RS Series and yet they provide firmware updates to RS Series before Ronin-S.
I have owned nearly every one of their flagship products and yet it's been the same story every time. Jokes on me.

Think about it DJI.
You've just as much time to ensure legacy devices work as you do with your current state.
But because you want to pander and pedal new wares, you leave US (the ones you pandered to just 9 months before) out in the cold; begging for your new wares when the old ones could work just fine.

I can't keep up.
I bought my Ronin-S this year and I can't even use it with a camera that came out this year.
I have a new $900 paper weight to sit along side the other DJI devices I have that are now antiquated solely because DJI won't support them.

I'm over it.
They don't care about us nor the fact that their devices become "seemingly" obsolete in such a short time frame.
These are my opinions but beware of the facts within. DJI is Money > Everything.

Please DJI - Z6 ii and Z7 ii compatibility for Ronin-S ASAP. Won't buy RS 2 for second rig until Ronin-S works because I need to trust that DJI will support similar products over time ...

I did the firmware update for the Z6ii AND the Ronin S and the record button on Ronin S still does not activate recording on the Z6ii.  I tried both the IR cable and the USB-c.   Neither worked.

What is the fix?
