Hey, i just got my ronin s with a7iii + 18-105 setup and finally i got also my multi cable in order to be able to control the camera.
I used to zoom a lot with this setup (a7iii+18-105) because i'm filming sports and i'm very dissapointed about the fact that they stoped halfway with the development of this feature, i mean it works so inconsistently that i stopped trying...
the gimbal is great and i love the smart features but i really hope that they will make this happen in the next firmware update as well as the camera charging via gimbal ( zhiyun has all this features since crane 2)
it seems that i just payd ~30 bucks just for moving the rec button 5cm down ))

if you have any hint or you think that i'm doing something wrong please let me know

Hi Stefan, we apologize for the unpleasant experience with Ronin-S, may I verify if you are using Sony E PZ 18-105mm? What happened during the zooming in/out?
The Ronin-S can charge the camera, but DC Power Cable will need to be purchased, please check more details here: https://store.dji.com/product/ronin-s-dc-power-cable

I was thinking about using a "Dummy Battery"  (buy another cable from DJI) there are two 12v power outlets on the Ronin. That frees up the usb on the camera

have a look at this pls


it kind of works... but is not good enough for me because i use zoom a lot (vertigo shot and some other things)
i was using one of your competitors gear in the last few years and didn't have this problem and also you could charge the camera using the same cable

thx, i was talking with the guys on the facebook forum and it would be awesome to be able to program the left/right of the joystick for the zoom in/out because not everybody really likes the wheel )
thx again

Following... this is the only thing I really need to control from the gimbal. Real disappointed it’s not working.

Tested with A7iii and latest FW 1.06.00.50.
Select speed FAST in app, SLOW will just about not move the lens. Is OK for re-framing, but currently it doesn't replace a zoom rocker/lanc controller.
work in progress (make sure you have the right MCC cable and power up sequence gimbal first)

Hi there, could you please try AVsupport's suggestion and set different zoom speed to see if it works?

Hi Marktho1, we have released a new firmware and this issue should have been optimized, could you please try again and keep us updated? Thank you.

hey boys and girls,  
As AVsupport says it works.
For now i'm happy but it would be wonderful to have some sort of a zoom rocker . i think that the wheel might be ok for focusing but we need at least two full revolutions to get from 18 to 105 and it's a pain to hold the gimbal with one hand while operating the joystick  and zooming at the same time )
thanks again

Parents should engage in the sexual education of their children and this doesn’t mean that you need to talk a lot with them about it. Simply provide them with the necessary useful literature that will be even more effective. There are also many useful articles on the Internet, such as this one https://j4l.com/blog/dating-tips ... st-date-went-well/. But you need to filter many sources.

issue seems to be that Sony doesn't have any mcc remotes that can make use of different (if existing) lens zoom speeds, only lanc controllers can, but that's a different system entirely..so at this stage I guess no one really can be sure if that can be done, fingers crossed and good luck to the clever DJI engineers ;-)

Hi @AVsupport,
What do you mean by "Select speed FAST in app"?

I got the zoom function working, but it's super slow. And i can't find any wheel setting in Ronin app for iPhone.

thanks,
Kevin

Same with digital zooming with clear image zoom.
Only one speed, other speed would also sometimes not be recognized.
Very sluggish response.
No soft start or stop of the zoom.

It would only be useful to zoom before starting the recording, but even for this it is not sufficient.

Go to Create\Camera Control\ Zoom Speed set it to fast. It works.
