Tilta has unveiled a new upcoming ecosystem for the DJI Ronin 4D. This includes a vest / support system that looks like a hybrid mix of the Tilta Iron Man II and an Easyrig Vario 5 with a FlowCine Serene arm.
I think this solution will potentially work well if you are someone who will be running Ronin 4D for long periods of time where fatigue will play a role in how long you can use it. On the other hand, it makes the overall setup much larger and it will drastically reduce your range of motion.
This solution has been designed to work not only with the new DJI Ronin 4D, but also with other digital cinema cameras. The way the system has been designed means that you cannot move the camera upward as the support arm sits at shoulder height.
Tilta has yet to release details on payload capacity or pricing.
Tilta will also have a shoulder solution for the Ronin 4D which allows you to have both the monitor and the handles on the front.
I’m still a little skeptical of how you would use the Ronin 4D as your main camera, but there are bound to be a slew of third-party accessories from various manufacturers that are designed to make it easier to do. Like any product, it really depends on what you’re shooting and how you like to work to find out what works best. What works well for one person, maybe a bad solution for someone else.
What do you think of these next Tilta solutions? Do you think the Ronin 4D can be used as a jack-of-all-trades camera, or do you think it’s still a niche product that will only be suitable for certain applications?
