• The focus motor requires external D-Tap power supply. See Hawk Woods Gripper in Accessories below.
• In order to mount the DJI Focus motor on an original Ronin, Ronin M or Ronin MX, the Ronin unit must have the DJI Accessory rail mount system – which attaches to the front of the quick release camera plate. This part is not always supplied as standard with the above Ronin units (at the point of purchase). All Hireacamera owned Ronins are supplied WITH the required parts as standard, however if you are intending to use the DJI Focus system using your own Ronin unit, you must check that you have the rail mount components – YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MOUNT THE FOCUS MOTOR WITHOUT THE RAILS.
The DJI Focus uses DJI’s expertise in brushless motors for previously unheard of levels of precision and accuracy. The brushless motor puts just ±0.02° of accuracy in your hands so that turning the remote is just like turning the lens itself. It also features high torque and a fast reaction speed so you can keep your subject in focus no matter how it moves.
On the ground, the remote control transmits at distances of up to 100m with just 14ms of lag in open space.
While cinema lenses feature built-in hard stops, photography lenses do not. On the Focus you can tune the lens to match the end-points of any lens you want to use. Because it uses a brushless motor, the onboard processor knows exactly which position the motor is in, letting you set up in seconds simply by turning the lens to infinite and marking it, then repeating at the other end.
CUSTOMISABLE FOCUS WHEEL
The already tactile and sturdy focus wheel is customisable so that it feels how you want it to feel. Simply turn a control knob until it reaches a stiffness or looseness that feels right to your hand.
REMOVABLE MARKING RING
A white marking ring around the focus dial can be swapped out and customised instantly using everything from masking tape to wax pencil for different lenses or projects. A light behind the ring illuminates it from behind ensuring markings are visible even on a dark set.
PROGRAMMABLE AND CUSTOMISABLE
An OLED display menu on the remote lets you fine-tune how the Focus works for you. You can even set multiple focus points, and the speed the camera racks between them making complex moves simple and repeatable.
Adding the 5.8 GHz wireless module to the Focus allows it to connect with the Inspire remote controller, providing wireless control of X5 series cameras from up to 3.1 mi (5km) away. It is compatible with the Ronin-MX on the M600, and all other Lightbridge 2 compatible devices, giving it up to 5Km of reach.
RONIN AND RONIN-M SUPPORT
When used with a DJI Ronin or Ronin-M you can pull focus from all around the set wirelessly, adding new depth to your Ronin footage.
DUAL COMMUNICATION PORTS
Two ports have been built in, so that as technology develops and improves you can expand your Focus with even more features and capabilities.
Connect other accessories to the Focus or even connect it to other pieces of your equipment. A built-in rosette mount means it can be fitted wherever you need it securely.
The included long-lasting single cell battery can power the Focus throughout a shoot, and can be swapped in seconds if it runs out. You can charge it in the studio or even on the move from a power pack through its USB recharging port.
