DJI Ronin 4D L-Mount Unit Is Now Available

DJI Zenmuse X9, the full-frame camera featured in the Ronin 4D professional cinema camera system, now offers even greater camera lens compatibility with the new L-Mount Unit. After announcing a partnership with world-leading camera maker Leica to join the L-Mount Alliance in 2022, the L-Mount Unit allows lenses from other Alliance members to work seamlessly with the Zenmuse X9.

The L-Mount Standard was started by Leica Camera AG for use in mirrorless camera systems. Members of the L-Mount Alliance manufacture their own compatible products independently, aligned strictly with the standard for uniform compatibility. With the Zenmuse X9 L-Mount Unit, Ronin 4D achieves the same lens experience with L-Mount lenses as the DJI proprietary DL mount type, including calibration-free setup, full support for aperture adjustment, and complete use of the LiDAR focusing system for autofocus, manual focus, and automated manual focus. Additional L-Mount Alliance standards available on the X9 L-Mount Unit include:

Mount diameter of 51.6 millimeters for compatibility with full-frame and APS-C lenses
Short flange distance of 20 millimeters ensures a short distance between lens and sensor for compact camera construction
Stainless steel bayonet with four flange segments to prevent canting and ensure more secure and precisely positioned lens mounting.
Standardized L-Mount Contact Strip ensures reliable electronic communication between the lens and camera.
