Tilta DJI Ronin 4D Ecosystem

Tilta has teased 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 is going to be shooting with the Ronin 4D for long periods of time where fatigue will play a factor in how long you can use it. On the flip side, it does make the overall set-up a lot larger and it will drastically reduce your range of motion.

This solution was designed to not only work with the new DJI Ronin 4D, but other digital cinema cameras. The way the system has been designed means you can’t move the camera up high, because the support arm is sitting at shoulder height.

Tilta hasn’t released any details yet about payload capacity, or pricing.

Tilta will also have a shoulder rig solution for the Ronin 4D that allows you to have both the monitor and the grips out front.

I am still a little skeptical as to how you would use the Ronin 4D as your main camera, but there are bound to be a host of third-party accessories coming out from various manufacturers that will be designed to make it easier to do. Like any product, it really depends on what you are shooting and how you like to operate as to what works best. What works well for one person, maybe a bad solution for someone else.

What do you think about these upcoming Tilta solutions? Do you think the Ronin 4D can be used as a jack-of-all-tades camera, or do you think it is still a niche product that will only be suited for certain applications?
