We’ll sell the Crane and the CamRanger and get the Ronin, the last video on your linked page lays out the wireless remote control and it is leagues better than the Zhiyun. Progress in these things is darn quick!Jack Douglas said:Yes, remote control is pretty important to me and so I suggest Scott that you pre-order and verify all the features for me on the 1DX2, and I'll jump ship! Looks like the price of accessories could be a factor but the Crane 2 sure did give Ronin a kick in the butt to compete and it looks like they've acted with vigour. Very interesting.
I'm trying to preorder from a boat in the Caribbean Sea, I really like the look of the time-lapse functionality and feel it could open up some new output options for me.Jack Douglas said:

The gimbal and camera are still moving, if only very slightly. You don't notice it with video, because the video keeps moving, but with a still image, it wouldn't look very still!Jack Douglas said:

Please, if you're an early adopter here, please keep us up to date on what you get and what you find with it.....
You've given me some good info and advice on a lot of things here and I'd be VERY interested in your thoughts and experiences on this when you get it...
Hi Jack,Jack Douglas said:Good man Scott. I'll be waiting to here the very first experiences. I need a gimbal by August at the latest so maybe this will work out. Are you getting any accessories - esp remote??
I saw one video where they said the follow focus setup for manual ficus lenses would be released in a month or two. But I don't see why it isn't a cable and software thing for Canon EF lenses and I'd be surprised if it isn't done via the regular wheel soon via firmware upgrade, there is no way it is going to stay Panasonic only for long.cayenne said:I looked around the DJI site....and I didn't see the option to buy the follow focus motor....
I'd really like THAT, at which point if I heard it all worked for the ballpark of $1K or under, I"ll be putting an order in too!!!
Ugh, this may be an expensive year.....I'm hoping to get an iMac Pro in the near future too...that's gonna be just over $8K.....
Hi Jack,Jack Douglas said:Is follow focus something different than me just rotating the gimbal focus wheel to manually override the DPAF??
Yes touching the screen is a mild irritant but it didn't really hamper me too much never the less why not correct it. I'm really pleased with the DPAF and how it'll automatically switch from the selected object when it goes out of sight. The gimbal has raised my desire to do video big time.privatebydesign said:Hi Jack,Jack Douglas said:Is follow focus something different than me just rotating the gimbal focus wheel to manually override the DPAF??
It's the same thing, the DJI only works on Panasonic cameras so far via cable and software/camera interface. They are showing a motor accessory that will work on pretty much any lens but I'd be surprised if they don't make the AF work via cable to camera, as the Crane 2 does, in time.
However, as I already said I rely on DPAF at this point and having the screen unobstructed by the back arm so I can use the touch screen easily is a big bonus.
