I discovered this summer the great product proposed by Frii Designs: TriLens ! It is an adapter that attaches to your belt and that takes up to 3 lenses around a turntable. It allows you to easily have and change your lenses ! Each space remains compartmentalized which avoids the diffusion of dust between the lenses. It is securely attached to the belt obviously avoiding falling and also frees the hands to change the lens!
So I took it upon myself in July 2019 to contact the company (announced on the Fujifilm support forum on Facebook) to ask them if they would eventually adapt TriLens for Fujifilm-x mount.
Jonas Lundin (CEO and founder of Frii Designs) wrote me today to tell me the good news : Yes, there is a first batch of TriLens for Fujifilm X Mount availlable in their online shop in limited quantity as the first batch.
If you grab one, would you please leave your thoughts in a comment down below ?
The release of the DJI Ronin-SC stabilizer that I talked about yesterday revived my desire to have in my equipment a gimbal able to compensate for the lack of stabilization of my Fujifilm X-t20. I had watched a lot of Zhiyun weebill lab 3 but could not make up my mind …
The arrival of the Ronin-SC changes a little the deal, especially since it is cheaper.
Here is, in this article, a reminder of its main features and a compilation of opinions available on the web (and mainly YouTube)
The Ronin-SC is the little brother of DJI Ronin-S. At this point, it is much lighter since it exceeds barely the kilogram but in return, it will not support a assembly of 2 kilos maximum. As such, it is still necessary to check the compatibility matrix provided by DJI (https://www.dji.com/en/ronin-sc/info#downloads) to make sure that your set box and lens is compatible ( see my news yesterday for Fujifilm). Some videos show that some mirrorless box, pushed back to balance the lens, come into abutment and block an axis of the gimbal (Canon Eos R)
For the rest, it has all the features of the Ronin-S without sacrificing a lot of life since it would hold 10 hours against 11, noted in a video. It therefore allows
Stabilization on 3 axes
Switch in sport mode and selfie
360 ° roll rotation
Tracking targets with ActiveTrack 3 (Via phone)
Motorized timelapse (via phone)
Tracking phone movements (copy of rotations)
For the combo pro version: focus engine and focus wheel associated
pro combo Pack
The pro combo pack also contains the entire Follow Focus system: lens rings, focus motor, mounting rod and accessories)
The first opinions are rather comforting because they denote very few differences with the Ronin-S apart from what it is able to handle. The features are complete and very interesting for a relatively low price range and complete accessories. You still have to verify that it will be compatible with your arsenal but if you are looking for a stabilizer for your mirrorless case, the DJI Ronin-SC is the choice to be made at this time
The good news of the day for videographers equipped Fujifilm is that DJI has announced the compatibility of Ronin-SC with the X-T3, X-T30, X-H1, X-T2 and X-T20. This new gimbal, released today, targets mirrorless boxes without forgetting us !!
