DJI recently introduced a number of new products for their Ronin handheld gimble. One such product, the DJI Force Pro, allows precision wireless control over Ronin equipped camera movements. We stopped to speak with DJI’s Patrick Santucci for more on the Force Pro and how it can improve the life of Ronin users.
Employing industry-leading communication technologies and control algorithms, DJI Force Pro is a camera movement control system that allows operators to control gimbals remotely with incredible accuracy. By precisely synchronizing operator movement with camera movement, Force Pro allows operators to capture masterful shots more intuitively than ever.
Communication latency as low as 10 milliseconds means the camera moves in sync with DJI Force Pro in near real time. An embedded compass and high-precision IMU work in tandem to ensure control is smooth and prevent the gimbal from drifting while moving or stationary.
Wireless devices are plagued with interference issues, so that’s why the DJI Force Pro features a dual-frequency 2.4 and 5.8 GHz wireless transmission system, capable of delivering a control distance of up to 3KM.DJI Force Pro also supports a wired connection, which can completely alleviate interference with other equipment on a film set.
Easy to Use
Just like with the Ronin 2, users can adjust gimbal and camera settings via DJI Force Pro’s built-in screen and buttons. You can even adjust each axis’ speed using adjustment dials.
With the included receiver, DJI Force Pro is compatible with the Ronin 2 and Ronin-S, or third-party gimbals through an S-BUS connection.Support for more devices is coming soon.
Long Battery Life
Featuring a 4750 mA battery that offers up to 5 hours of operating time, DJI Force Pro has enough power to stay powered on for an entire shoot. Users can also charge Force Pro via its USB-C port or CAN BUS port.
For maximum adaptability, DJI Force Pro comes with a lightweight handle and can be simultaneously connected to multiple accessories, including monitors, video transmission systems, thumb controllers, and more. It can also be mounted on a tripod with the included adaptor.
The DJI Force Pro will be available in June 2018 for approximately $1,200. For more information visit www.DJI.com/Force-Pro.
