The LiDAR has 76,800 ranging points, a leap of 77% in quantity, sharpening human-subject edge detection while effectively reducing focus hunting.
The max focus distance is 20 meters, and the human-subject focus distance is approximately three times that of the previous generation; DJI states it can effortlessly‌ handle long-distance focusing even with telephoto lenses. The 70° FOV is beneficial for edge compositions and close-up shots, providing a larger framing space.

The LiDAR refresh rate of 30 Hz allows for faster subject information collection, ensuring better focusing on moving subjects. When paired with the DJI Focus Pro Motor, the LiDAR can enable autofocus for manual lenses that have been calibrated. You can save lens profiles as well for quicker transition when changing lenses.

When the stabilizer’s screen is in 1x mode, the LiDAR’s ToF sensor operates within a 10-meter sensing range by default. To extend to a 20-meter focus distance, you can tap the + icon on the screen to enable 2x zoom display.

The DJI Focus Pro is compatible with DJI RS 4 Pro, DJI RS 3 Pro, and DJI Focus Pro Grip.

One possible issue is how small the FIZ’s screen is and the brightness performance outside. Other than that, it looks like an excellent system at a competitive price.
