The new DJI Ronin 4D-8K 4-Axis Cinema Camera 8K Combo and Zenmuse X9-8K Gimbal Camera offer different options for videographers to upgrade their preexisting configuration for 8K image capture. You can keep the familiar modular Ronin 4D design with embedded CineCore 3.0 image processing system with DJI Cinema Color System, but with improved video resolutions.
The Ronin 4D-8K Combo is largely the same as its predecessor, capturing up to 8K video at 30 fps in ProRes 422 HQ with the same modular system of components. It supports the industry-standard ACES workflow and features a raw license key. Where it differs is with the inclusion of the 17-28mm T3.0 ASPH PZ Lens for extra focal length flexibility. An included PROSSD 1TB drive, which is required to shoot 8K video, and a drive mount allow you to incorporate additional storage directly onto your rig.
Additionally, the 4D-8K features the same Zenmuse X9-8K camera as the previous model, which DJI is now offering separately to upgrade your Ronin 4D 6K combo. Simply mount the X9-8K on your 4D body and update it to the latest firmware to access the same image capture as the 8K camera, for higher-quality visuals without forgoing your preexisting configuration. Like every Ronin 4D model, the 4D-8K is compatible with the entire DJI Ronin ecosystem, such as the Flex Extension Unit, Focus Motor, and Expansion Plate.
