Hi Guys, I can't see a thread here where we can all add the features or improvements we would like to see in the Ronin 4D so I thought i'd make one!

(1) Before you post, please do a quick search to see if someone else has posted what you want to post.
(2) If they have, please upvote rather than posting again!
(3) Please only one suggestion per comment (makes the voting easier).

Also, as a general rule of thumb, please keep the comment short so people can find what they want easier.

With thanks!

please add an option for

maybe via a Ronin 4D app on iPhone/Android

This would be sweet, but until they work out the maths on this one, even adding the functionality to program the gimbal movement like they do with the Ronin-S would be sweet.

You can do that by setting Peak button to magnification. It then toggles through two levels of magnification.

Improvements

Add Prores 422 / LT  
Add Braw if possible.
Customise Buttons generally (Remap - the M button (or similar) to allow instant slow-motion HFR.)
Can't find Delete clip - add this.
Make another way of changing exposure via buttons so you can leave the wheel on focus without having to cycle through mode on the screen. Be able to control Iris and focus at the same time.
Update the tracking feature so that you can quick press it to lock focus and tracking without to touch the screen to select "TRACK" and take hands off.

Suggestions for user manual,

Explain how active track pro and focussing work with more clarity. Seems very confusing.
Explain about the counter-weight for the lenses with lidar fitted. I see lots of Ronin 4D user running without the weight and it stops it dropping around.

It would be good to allow adjustment of the sensitivity of the focus thumb wheel, and reverse its direction.

I might be asking something dumb but I haven't found a way to connect my ronin 4d to wall power in case I need to film a static interview...
Is a power adapter that works like that for sale anywhere?
I can't find anything on the matter either on the manual or online...
thanks!

- Some dummy hand grips? Taking the grips off to operate from the monitor is great, but makes the camera itself harder to use.- An S-BUS connection to enable use of different remotes for controlling the gimbal movement?

Yes, the main issue actually with the camera is :

UPGRADE THE AUTO-FOCUS and add more custom settings on it (speed, accuracy, targets, etc.)

And please, UPGRADE ALSO THE ACTIVE TRACK too adding some custom settings (freedom of move of the target, speed of tracking, etc.)

+ all the features already asked.

Tons of great suggestions.

Please allow autofocus to remain functional when MODE button is pressed during recording.

Right now, when I press mode button to change ND while i'm recording, AF stops functioning and I lose focus of my subject.

Please have a way to exit the mode button menu faster when you just want to change NDs and not has to scroll through each settings. Maybe pressing the right trigger once to exit the mode menu.
Also for the 3D Lidar focus assist to still be on when recording at 6k 60P.

Hey,

Hold down the mode button for a second or two - it will exit out without scrolling past all the options.

Took me a second to find this out!

Wow! holding down the mode button works a lot better but I feel like a single press of the right trigger would still be better in terms of work flow.
