DJI Introduces Drone Follow Focus for Inspire X5 RAW Drones and Ronin

For their new DJI Inspire 1 and X5 RAW quadcopters DJI introduces a new drone follow focus system that is also compatible with the DJI Ronin.

Just two weeks ago we reported about the new DJI Inspire 1 Pro, X5R Drone, one of the most advanced affordable camera drones that are equipped with a micro four thirds camera and RAW capabilities. Here’s DJI’s drone follow focus that integrates with their existing remotes and allows accurate focusing on Inspire drones and also the DJI Ronin and Ronin-M.

The DJI Wireless Follow Focus System uses the existing wireless connection of Zenmuse Z5 series of camera/gimbals systems, thus it is also compatible with the DJI Ronin and Ronin-M handheld gimbal stabilizers and comes a a kit with a motor for those.

The system including the motor is $1,999 and is said to be available in October (LINK)

The standalone drone follow focus (hand-unit only) will connect to the DJI Inspire 1 remote and cost $999 (LINK)
