DJI are well known for their world-leading drones, but a while back it announced the Ronin 4D camera which brought the buttery-smooth gimbal to handheld operations. For some time the Ronin 4D-6K edition has been available; now, finally, the long-awaited 8K powerhouse is in stores.

The Ronin 4D-8K, has – not coincidentally – a detachable camera gimbal system like the DJI Inspire 3, one of the best drones out there for filming. It has full-frame 8K/60fps and 4K/120fpr capabilities with 800/40000 dual-native ISO providing 14.7 stops of dynamic range, enough to please cinema-grade creators.
