We had a little time off during principle photography on a feature we were shooting and decided to test the RED EPIC-M DRAGON on the DJI RONIN with LEICA SUMMICRON-C LENSES

Shot in 6K at 75fpsAll shot in about 5 minutes



Thanks to John at KipperTie for making this possible.

NICE. What was your focus system? How tired did your operator get?

:-) loving what I'm seeing with the Ronin so far.

Our WFF was the Bartech analogue. It is a bit annoying to calibrate, however once everything is set it works very well. Had a few complaints by the sound department as it's a little noisy.

It it was surprisingly easy to operate I shot this in about 5 minutes and each take is about 30 seconds. When shooting the actual feature it can become extremely tiring and tough to get it right. A few times I had to get my 2nd AC to help hold it. We would take one handle each.

takes a bit getting used to but works very well!

Love the ronin and Dragon combination!

we maxed out the weight at around 16 Lbs

What motor did you use? M1? The Bartech itself doesn't make any noise, and when paired with a Heden motor, it's quiet as can be...

I'm not entirely sure sorry, I will ask my AC. the motor we used tho was very noisy with fast pulls.

Test video is great! And I think you can adjust your shutter speed to avoid long motion blurs.

Thanks, We had a extension cable for the power and literally had it dangling from the top bar where we mounted a V-lock plate with the red brick attached - The DJI handled it with no problems
