The Vespid Cyber Primes feature a unique data interface connection port on the lenses themselves. This allows the lens to output the focusing and aperture data which can be applied in post-production and virtual production. When used with the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) and the RS 3 Pro, you don’t need to calibrate the lenses as the connection automatically talks to the system. You just simply attach a cable from the lens to the DJI focus motor, and that, in turn, communicates directly with the LiDAR system.

As far as the lenses are concerned, they will be available in three different focal lengths: 35mm, 50mm, and 75mm. All three lenses are T2.1. The lenses will be available in either PL or EF mount.

They are all reasonably lightweight at 1.15kg and under which makes them suitable for use with a small digital cinema camera or a mirrorless hybrid, coupled with the DJI RS 3 Pro.

DJI RS 3 Pro – Lens callibration

The DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) enables users to do extremely precise autofocus when their camera is mounted onto the DJI RS 3 Pro, even when dealing with fast-moving subjects. The range finder is designed to make it easier to focus while in motion, and it has 43,200 ranging points within a 46′ detection area for accurate focusing in dim conditions.

The range finder features a built-in camera with 30mm focal length and 70° field of view to ensure accurate focus. It also features wide and spot modes so operators can either autodetect focus or adjust focus manually. It is compatible with the RS Focus Motor to provide accurate cinema-style autofocus when you’re using manual lenses. The range finder mounts on your RS stabilizer or camera using its cold shoe or 1/4″-20 thread, and it powers via a USB Type-C power cable, making for a well-integrated autofocus addition to your camera.

Compared with conventional focusing technology, the LiDAR focusing system does not need to rely on the surface texture of the subject. This is especially useful in low-light environments or complicated scenarios with multiple subjects and results in exceptionally stable focus in the footage.

It supports both Wide Mode and Spot Mode. In Wide Mode, the range finder automatically detects the subject and follows focus. In Spot Mode, users can manually frame or tap the subject to focus.

The pairing of the LiDAR Range Finder with the new Focus Motor also makes cinematic autofocus on manual lenses possible after calibration. Press the M button on the gimbal once to quickly switch between manual focus and autofocus to meet your needs for both modes effortlessly.
