DJI Ronin 4D: The Art of Freestyle Filming

Last winter, a video went viral of world-renowned ski-videographer Antoine Frioux barreling down a mountain with the DJI Ronin 2. Known for his work at the Winter Olympics, X Games, and on documentaries with the world’s best skiers, Frioux’s daredevil ingenuity captures perfect shots that go above and beyond traditional action sports video coverage.

Frioux’s high-speed brand of videography made him qualified to test the capabilities of the Ronin 4D as few others could. He put the camera through a rugged test, following four freestyle skiers through the French Alps in Mont Blanc. The result was a stunning collection of acrobatic images and footage showcasing Frioux’s skillful direction and the smooth agility of the Ronin 4D.

“I have so many more ideas I want to try out as I feel I have only started to understand the potential of what this tool can bring to my creativity,” said Frioux. “It replaces the effort of a four or five-member film crew because I alone can shoot, frame, stabilize, and focus the shot. And the fact that the client can get video feedback straight away is a huge gain!”
