  • After the update is complete, unplug the USB-C cable from Ronin-S and proceed to power on the gimbal.
  • If Ronin-S has a camera attached and is turned on while updating the firmware, make sure to protect the camera and lens as the motors will shut off during the update.
  • If the firmware update fails, restart the Ronin-S and retry.

Hi there, using my Ronin-S with current 1.9.0.80 update and Sony a7III and 16-35mm G Series. Unfortunately, the focus wheel is not working but the start/stop record button is functioning. I tried using the MCC-B AND MCC-C cable. None of them registering focus wheel.

Anything can be done? Thanks so much!

Thank you for providing easy access to the way points.
Could you also provide a loop mode and/or reverse mode (ping-pong)?

The number of remaining way points looks a little off to me.

Wow, I can not believe that DJI S T I L L can not get this right.

The manual focus of Ronin S and Canon 5D Mark 4 is a joke. I mean, really!? It jumps around like crazy, when its too slow to use its smooth, anything else well.... your wasting your time.
Such a shame the Ronin S is "junked" but poor firmware and camera control on what surly has to be a commonly used camera.

I've learnt the hard way with DJI. As a new customer, Mavic 2 Pro Zoom - issues (fly aways, geo zone, loss of video and more), Ronin S - too many to list since day 1, DJI smart controller - loss of video feed, DJI Osmo - lip sync and more... blimey, do they make anything thats 100%?

If I did not get the difference back in a refund when DJI cut the price of the Ronin S I would not own it. I make proffesional quality family video's for fun with mine but man, you can not use this device to make a living can you?

I've tested the new firmware on my 5D4, won't bother with my 1DX2 or EOS R. If DJI can not give smooth pull focus on a 5D4 then no point in trying others.

Down graded to the last firmware as the newly added focus speeds (1 - 100) are usless for pull focus on the 5D4, better of with MED on old firmware as even though tooooo slow to use at least it's smooth slow, SLOW is MILES to SLOW and FAST is jumpy as hell...



Oh well.....

Next stabilizer I buy.....hummmm.....not DJI.

They've changed the interface.  I'm not sure what exactly they changed as I never really used any of the automatic modes but it looks different.

Do we know if we have to recalibrate?

Oh, these bad experiences with the Canon 5D mark IV are interesting to read. I didn't get the Ronin S because the active tracking is very important for me. Unfortunately DJI doesn't seem to want to retrofit the function and so the Ronin S is a bad choice. That there are still other problems with the Canon 5D MK IV is of course very bad but now good to know. Another reason not to buy the DJI :-(

Nikkor 28-300 focus pull not is not working always. It will work for a few focus pulls then stop working with focus wheel. My other f mount lenses do not have this issue. Worked perfect in last firmware.

Yes you are. I have just upgraded to the new firmware, and everything is working perfect. Eventhough you won't get zebra and peaking when the camera is in AF-S mode, you can bring it over to the external monitor, even sound volume bars!

Can anyone hack the app to make it think it's an SC when you have an S so we have at least some Activetrack capabilities?

Thank you. Now at least the timelapse mode works correctly and I can go up to 90º. It would be interesting to add the counter of the remaining photos to finish the process.

Still waiting on focus pull for the A6500....

Did this update as it claimed improved stability with the 18-105 to find I can no longer control Zoom speed and it is stuck in the slow setting which is practically unusable. Unless you have half an hour to zoom from 18 to 105. Please add zoom speed back and not with just slow (too slow) and fast (too fast) but a medium speed as well.....

So when are you adding compatibility for the focus pull on the A7R2 over either the MCC-Multi or MCC-B? Doesn't make sense that the a9 and A6400 both can focus pull over the MCC-B but the MCC-Multi can't do focus pull on the R2.

My iOS app lost the top part of the menu after updating to iOS 13 on iPhone XS Max.

So the line just below the icons are now almost invisible.

So if you really need the iOS app - watch out
