Well, we finally now have a relatively small drone with a nice, large 4/3 sensor and ProRes. This is a nice combination. We just weren’t expecting it to cost $5,000. We’re more excited because this means in the future there will be more and more drones with larger sensors and ProRes at a lower cost.
Still, if you need a solid, small drone for now that can produce an image that will stand up to greating, this is a great offering.
This review of the DJI Ronin 4D has given us the most fair and comprehensive comparison of both the strengths and weaknesses of this camera. It took him a bit longer than other reviewers to release this video, but the extra time and effort shows. This is still a praise worthy camera, but know its limitations, and Mr. Bloom does a good job clarifying what they are.
An interesting form factor variation for an action camera that shoots 4K at 120FPS:
Well, this is a surprise. It’s nice to see some innovation, but DJI was the last company we were expecting it from in the full frame camera market, so good for them.
