EDIT: I realized you can. View PDF camera compatibility list.



Are you able to control focus with the Focus Wheel only? (and not using the focus module motor?)

For example, the ronin s has specific cables (e.g. Sony Multi USB cable) to control the focus internally via the focus wheel and with out having to use the focus module. Can you do this on the Ronin SC or are you only able to use the focus wheel with the motor and not one with out the other?

So do I get this right that it works without the motor if „pull focus electronically“ is mentioned?
I do own a Z6 and this would be a great benefit

I have the same question. I have a Z7 & don't know if I need to get the focus module.

If it works that way I think you (we) have to get the Focus wheel. It seems that it is the same like the one used for the Ronin-S.

I just received the ronin-sc with focus wheel and motor. I have a canon eos r with rf 35mm. I first balanced with the motor and then decided to take the motor off. Re-balanced everything and while in video mode I accidentally touch the focus wheel..... and it focused! So looks like for my setup you don't need the motor while in video mode.

I am able to use focus wheel without attaching Focus Motor on Z6 camera.  So really for this camera all I should have bought was the focus wheel and not the pro version which came with motor and focus wheel.
