Cinematography Liberated

DJI Ronin 4D Flex

Ronin 4D has opened a new era for filmmaking and continues to deliver exciting new possibilities. Meet Ronin 4D Flex – a novel, extendable solution designed to liberate cinematography. It provides creators with a more flexible and efficient camera movement system and a unique creative experience.

Integrated and Modular: Both Realized in One Camera

DJI Ronin 4D offers a unique design. Crafted with carbon fibre and aluminium magnesium, its solid body integrates imaging, stabilization, and focusing systems, as well as wireless transmission and control. This avoids time-consuming setup and enables quicker shooting.

Processing Power

Ronin 4D is equipped with Zenmuse X9, DJI’s flagship full-frame camera. It also features DJI’s latest image processing system, CineCore 3.0. This system uses DJI’s proprietary chip to provide advanced processor architecture, offering extremely high-performance computing power in a compact cinema camera. CineCore 3.0 allows Ronin 4D to support internal recording of Apple ProRes RAW, ProRes 4444 XQ, ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422 LT, and H.264 video. It also supports up to 8K/75fps and 4K/120fps video recording, [3] delivering multiple options for professional-level creation.


DCI 8K (8192×4320)/60fps video retains every little detail, from rich foliage to inspiring architecture, and skin texture to strands of hair, all with flawless quality. For those who need to output in 4K, recording in 8K offers unprecedented creative options with more flexibility for cropping, re-composing, and stabilizing videos in the post.

High ISO

Zenmuse X9 supports dual native ISO. X9-8K offers EI 800/4000 at full frame 30 fps and below, and EI 320/1600 above 30 fps, while X9-6K offers EI 800/5000, which records images with exquisite detail and minimal noise, even when filming an evening cityscape or beach, or a scene lit by dim candlelight.

Dynamic Range

With 14+ stops of dynamic range, Zenmuse X9 delivers natural transitions of highlights and shadows in complex lighting conditions such as backlit scenes and direct sunlight. These traditionally difficult scenes can now be captured easily and with confidence.

Color Science

With the DJI Cinema Color System (DCCS) and robust computing power provided by CineCore 3.0, Zenmuse X9 is able to give images a cinematic look by retaining authentic and accurate colors. It also supports the industry-standard ACES workflow for effortless compatibility with the color tones of other cinema cameras.

Built-In 9-Stop ND Filters

X9 has 9-stop built-in high-quality ND filters (ND 2 to ND 512, or ND 0.3 to ND 2.7) that can be quickly and easily switched thanks to an internal motorized system. These filters were also designed to match and compliment the color science of Ronin 4D.

DL Prime Lenses

X9’s standard DL mount supports a set of compact full-frame prime lenses. The housings are made of lightweight, monocoque carbon fibre, so each lens weighs just 180 g.

DL Zoom Lens

In addition to prime lenses, X9 is compatible with DJI’s first cinema zoom lens DL PZ 17-28 mm T3.0 ASPH, which covers ultra-wide to wide-angle focal lengths with a minimum object distance of 0.19 m, [5] delivering ultra-high resolution from centre to edge. The lens body is made of magnesium aluminium alloy and weighs only approximately 520 g, making it a perfect match for the X9 gimbal camera from size to weight.

With a servo zoom motor built in, the lens delivers smooth and reliable motorized zoom without the need for mounting an external focus motor or lens calibration. Gimbal re-balancing is also not required after Zoom. Thanks to its precise back focus control and native system calibration, autofocus, manual focus, and automated manual focus (AMF) are all more outstandingly accurate.

Interchangeable Mounts

X9 supports interchangeable lens mounts, including DJI’s proprietary DL mount as well as third-party mounts like Leica L, Leica M, Sony E, and ARRI PL (E-mount and PL-mount units are provided by third parties). Ultra-wide, f/0.95 large-aperture, power zoom, macro, and anamorphic lenses that are compatible with traditional cinema cameras also work on X9, providing flexible lens options.

Wireless Control

Whether you’re using manual or autofocus lenses, dedicated modules mounted to X9 can achieve wireless lens control and even autofocusing.

4-Axis Stabilization

DJI Ronin 4D adds a Z-Axis to the traditional 3-axis gimbal, which effectively decreases vertical camera shake and offers stabilization performance on par with a dolly. The four axes work together with a downward ToF sensor, forward and downward dual-visual sensors, a built-in IMU and barometer, and an advanced new algorithm to bring the overall stabilization to a whole new level.

When this compact body combines with its powerful stabilization capabilities, complex camera movements that used to be very costly to achieve are now easily attainable.

Integrated Gimbal Camera

Ronin 4D integrates the imaging and stabilization systems while keeping only the sensor and necessary optical components in the gimbal camera. The tilt axis of the gimbal uses dual symmetric motors, whereas both the pan axis and the roll axis are designed with an additional stiffness buffer.

With a highly integrated body and robust motor force, Ronin 4D offers the best stabilizing and tracking the performance of the entire Ronin Series so far at an incredibly lightweight. Additionally, it can switch to Sport mode with the press of a button, allowing the gimbal to react quickly to the cinematographer's movements.

ActiveTrack Pro

DJI’s proprietary computer vision, deep learning technology, and the robust computing power of CineCore 3.0 combine in ActiveTrack Pro, which enables cinema-standard tracking shots, even in just one take. This technology also allows subjects to be tracked from longer distances and features composition adjustment with continuous autofocusing to keep subjects in focus during tracking shots.

Extendable Solution

The new extendable solution, Ronin 4D Flex, reduces the handheld weight down to 1.8 kg, [9] which is only around 34% of the original weight, [10] making it superbly useful for cinematographers who require long-duration shooting, especially in mobile scenarios like recording documentaries, interviews, or events. The lightweight Ronin 4D Flex delivers unique advantages both in terms of its portability and high performance to meet cinematic-grade needs for high-quality imagery.

The 2m gimbal camera extension cable enables unprecedented flexibility of camera positions, allowing for through-shots and movements in narrow spaces like car interiors. It also allows the X9 gimbal camera to be used as an ultra-small cinematic-grade remote head. Even in complex spaces, tracking shots can be done easily in one take, providing opportunities for more creativity.

The extension system adopts an ultra-thin coaxial cable, supporting lossless transmission of up to 8K high-speed signals captured by the camera sensor and also the complete transmission of control and monitoring signals. The cable also ensures endurance and flexibility when bending in different scenarios.

Ronin 4D Flex is natively compatible with Ronin 4D’s Hand Grips and the Main Monitor and can act as a lightweight, compact but powerful solo operating system, providing cinematographers with a whole set of solutions, including 8K cinematic imaging, 3-axis stabilization, LiDAR focusing, and professional monitoring and control. This delivers a convenient and efficient creative experience unparalleled in the industry today. Switching between Flex and the integrated configuration on set is fast and no tools are required for this transition, providing greater versatility.

Extended Lens Compatibility

For static shots, Ronin 4D Flex can mount the standard Pan Axis Quick-Lock with accessories to push the limits of payload and carry telephoto lenses like FE 70-200 mm F2.8 GM and FE 200-600 mm F5.6-6.3 G. With certain third-party accessories and focus motors, lens options can be further expanded to include Zeiss SP, Cooke Anamorphic/i, and other cinema zoom and anamorphic lenses.

LiDAR Waveform

DJI Ronin 4D makes manual focusing easier than ever. The visualized focus assistance technology displays the ranging points on the main and remote monitors in a simplified top-down view. This provides an innovative and intuitive LiDAR Waveform to locate focus points quickly and allow focus adjustments with extreme precision. Even operators with little or no experience can become adept at manual focusing quickly.

LiDAR Range Measurement 43,200

The LiDAR Range Finder can cast up to 43,200 ranging points within a 10-meter detection range. [12] Compared with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), Ronin 4D’s LiDAR Focusing System can focus faster, without compromising the image quality or relying on the surface texture of the subject. This is especially useful in low-light environments and results in exceptional focusing capabilities compared to other cinema cameras.


With the new LiDAR Focusing System, Ronin 4D is able to maintain focus even when there is severe motion blur caused by subjects moving quickly. With the focus motor mounted, autofocus is available even on manual lenses. Continuous autofocusing on subjects can be enabled together with ActiveTrack Pro, making it especially convenient for solo operators.

Automated Manual Focus

Automated Manual Focus (AMF) mode [13] gives you the accuracy and flexibility of manual focus with the convenience of autofocus. The focus wheel will rotate in sync as the focus point changes, but cinematographers can take manual control at any point. The focus wheel on the right hand grip even features dynamic damping with electromagnetic technology. This gives cinematographers a physical sense of focus changes, providing a more intuitive and modern focusing experience that is unrivaled in the industry today.

Video Transmission Performance

Ronin 4D uses the all-new DJI O3 Pro Video Transmission technology, which offers a 20,000-foot transmission range [14] that would be unimaginable on traditional solutions. In addition to 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz, it supports the DFS frequency band and an AES 256-bit encryption algorithm that can output a 1080p/60fps FHD feed to multiple remote monitors simultaneously with significantly enhanced security, stability, and anti-interference capability.

DJI's proprietary chip powers the imaging system, video transmitter, video receiver, and remote monitor of Ronin 4D. Together, these components form a streamlined wireless transmission system, with every link explicitly optimized to provide end-to-end ultra-low transmission latency.

Integrated Design

The 4D Video Transmitter can be directly mounted onto Ronin 4D and powered by the battery of the main body. With a built-in wireless video receiver, the High-Bright Remote Monitor has a 7-inch, 1,500-nit high-bright, wide-colour gamut touchscreen display that can output both HDMI and SDI signals through the expansion module. Its compact and lightweight body provides optimum portability and efficient setup so users can start shooting immediately.

Coordinated Shooting

The High-Bright Remote Monitor supports one transmitter with multiple receivers for video and audio feeds. Two transmission modes are available. The first is Broadcast mode, which sets no limit on the number of receivers and is suitable for monitoring with large crews. The second is the Control mode, which supports the coordinated operation of two receivers.

Mirror Control Mode

Mirror Control Mode gives the High-Bright Remote Monitor an identical control interface as the main monitor, including all advanced features such as source clip playback, and camera and gimbal settings, which can now be remotely adjusted even when Ronin 4D is mounted to expansion platforms such as a jib, cable cam, or vehicle mount.

Independent Recording and Playback

The High-Bright Remote Monitor has a built-in microSD card slot that supports independent recording of video at up to 1080p/60fps. When several remote monitors are used in conjunction, each monitor can play back clips separately without interfering with other monitors.
