Wanna know if the Ronin-S work with the FS5…? Keep reading!
Last week we went to Copenhagen to shoot our review of the Ronin-S with the Sony FS5. It’s not the typical Ronin-S review, since there are so many out there. It’s a review based on the combination Ronin-S and FS5.
My initial thought’s are wup wup, this is awesome, and great, it actually works with a larger camera like the Sony FS5!
I spend some time testing and trying different scenarios. I wanted to get it to work underslung mode, for tracking shots with feet, bikes etc.
The only way this was possible was with a big battery (I used the SWIT S-8U93) anf the Sony 10-18mm. If you use a heavier lens or a smaller battery, you will have to move the FS5 back, and the EVF will hit the rear motor. I would have liked to try som weights on the back of the FS5, but did’nt have any available.
So I’m getting the Ronin-S for my FS5 and a7SII cameras. Here are some the good and the bad stuff… See the video at the bottom!
- Great build quality and ergonomics
- 12 hour battery
- 8-pound / 3.6 Kgs payload capacity
- Built-in electronic follow focus (not for all cameras)
- Mobile app offers extensive control
- Awesome price
