DJI Ronin 4D Receives L-mount With the Release of a New Lens Mount

An L-mount is now available for the camera system, increasing the range of lenses that may be used on this ground-breaking system, according to DJI, the renowned drone company and recent producer of the DJI Ronin 4D(opens in new tab).

The Ronin 4D professional cinema camera system, which now offers even more camera lens flexibility with the new L-Mount unit, includes DJI’s Zenmuse X9, a full-frame camera that is incorporated in the system. This new L-Mount unit enables lenses from other Alliance members to function flawlessly with the Zenmuse X9 system and, in turn, the DJI Ronin 4D, expanding the range of lenses available to filmmakers after DJI announced a partnership(opens in new tab) with world-renowned camera maker Leica to join the L-Mount Alliance in 2022.

Filmmakers will need to spend about $429.69, £349, or AUS $602.57 on the new DJI Zenmuse X9 L-Mount device, which is a lot of money only to be able to use more lenses.

When purchasing a DJI Ronin 4D, it would be nice if DJI offered it as an alternative mount option, much like many other cinema camera manufacturers do by offering a native mounting option in addition to the standard PL mount. However, I suppose when you are as big as DJI, and launch a product that changes the game of filmmaking for many, you can charge what you like. At the very least, having the choice would be wonderful.

The L-mount Alliance: Leica Camera AG established the L-Mount Standard for use with mirrorless camera systems. Members of the L-Mount Alliance individually produce their own uniformly compatible goods while rigorously adhering to the standard.

Ronin 4D is able to use L-Mount lenses with the same lens experience as DJI’s proprietary DL mount type thanks to the Zenmuse X9 L-Mount unit. This lens experience includes a calibration-free setup, full support for aperture adjustment, and full use of the LiDAR focusing system for autofocus, manual focus, and automated manual focus.
