Thanks

Hi Chris, Nikon Z6 is not in our compatible list, the Ronin-S can be stabilized when being used with cameras that weigh less than 3.6 kg, with a width smaller than or equal to 205 mm, and a height less than or equal to 150 mm. However, the control features cannot be ensured, it is recommended to use the camera in our compatible list: https://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/ ... y_List_20181119.pdf

Mindy,

Is DJI working on ronin-s compatibility updates to include the Nikon Z6?  I own the Nikon Z6 and bought a ronin-s hoping compatibility would follow shortly after the Z6 release date.  A response would be appreciated.

Since the Z7 is supported with the latest firmware and Nikon is using the same protocol for both cameras, I would expect the Z6 to work as of today.
Your statement indicates it does not - any details of what happens?

No response from the camera at all to start/stop, focus wheel does nothing.  Like it is not even recognized.  Updated ronin to latest firmware available today.

Bought the Ronin-S yesterday, now looking forward to get Nikon Z6 control support as well, just like the Z7 does. Since both cameras are the same, it should be as simple as handling the Z6's device id.
Looking forward...

I just bought a DJI Ronin-S yesterday for my Nikon Z6.   

Would be great to have the Nikon Z6 on the compatible list soon!!  

As you may know, the Full Frame Mirrorless Nikon Z6 and Z7 are the first Nikon cameras that offer excellent video

Gus

Hi Mindy

Thanks for the updates. I'm really looking forward to the Z6 support. Is there an approximate timeline for the next firmware release? What's the best way to stay up to date with future firmware releases?

Thanks,

Impatiently waiting for the Z6 update. Talked to many Nikon Z6 owners that may be returning their Ronin S Christmas gift due to lack of support. Hoping DJI has a firmware update soon.

Hot tip DJI it's just like the Z7... perhaps you could just turn it on and release an update.

Save yourself some grief and buy the Weebill. I got sucked in by the DJI hype and am now regretting it... they haven’t even listed the Z6 as something they’re working on in their list. It’s similarities to the Z7 should have made it a no brainer to do both at the same time. Is it any wonder that Nikon didn’t partner with DJI for their film makers kit... they chose Moza instead.

This is getting ridiculous.
Just need to change Z7 into „Z7 or Z6“ in the DJI source code. And two months after the OP, still nothing has happened. Has DJI lost all its agility? Already now?
I am looking into the Moza Air 2 now, as this seems to be the official Nikon route.

Hi faldron, sorry for the inconvenience caused, we are working on the compatibility between Nikon Z6 and Ronin-S, once it is ready, we will release via the firmware and update the compatible list: https://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/Ronin-S/20181119/Ronin-S_Camera_Compatibility_List_20181119.pdf

And that is the problem, Mindy. In a business like yours it is all about managing customer expectations.
This can be done via two ways, either by being proactive. In this instance by providing a firmware update fast.
Or by providing information and roadmaps. Things like "We are sorry that Z7 is supported and Z6 is not although both are almost identical in regards to the USB protocol. But we want to better support both before providing the next firmware. Current estimations are xyz."

Your company does many things right but especially in this area a lot of things wrong. You essentially ask other companies to fill the void and they obviously take you up on your offer.

Just one example: Do you believe I trust that you will provide a firmware update for the Ronin-S in 6 months when there is a new camera? Hmmm, guess what....

Well looks like am in the same boat as others. Z6 with Ronin S.

It looks like it is a calm before the storm. Its well known about DJI that they take their time and they really come up with amazing products. I am willing to wait as long as it takes, I am sure I won’t be disappointed in the end.

For all Z6 user I suggest you the new Zhiyun Crane, it works very well with Z6 (and Z7) and the support team responds quickly (not with a copy-and-paste of meaningless phrases) with precise dates on all the ongoing developments.
Unfortunately DJI is his staff is not able to give this assistance, does not give answers, and is not good for our work because it is a useless waste of time and money.

Hi WernerD, I understand your concern, but sometimes the info we have is also limited, we only get the feedback from our engineers that Nikon Z6 will be supported in the future firmware update, but do not have the ETA at the moment, sorry for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience and understanding.
