DJI Ronin 4D-8K Camera Set to Revolutionize Cinematography

A New Era in Filmmaking Technology

DJI, the renowned leader in civilian drone and creative camera technology, has set a new benchmark in imaging excellence with the launch of the DJI Ronin 4D-8K. This groundbreaking device, unveiled on December 14, 2023, represents the pinnacle of cinematography equipment, integrating DJI's most sophisticated technologies into a singular, innovative platform.

“Empowering creators with cutting-edge technology has always been at the heart of DJI's mission,” said Paul Pan, DJI Senior Product Line Manager. “The Ronin 4D-8K stands as a testament to our dedication to delivering unparalleled imaging solutions and providing creators with the tools they need to bring their visions to life with exceptional clarity and brilliance.”

DJI's Advanced Color Science

At the heart of the DJI Ronin 4D-8K's superior performance is DJI's Cinema Color Science (DCCS). This technology ensures natural skin tones and vibrant color reproduction, even in complex lighting.

Enhancing the DJI Cinema Color Science (DCCS), the CineCore image processing platform, is a crucial feature DJI developed for superior digital intermediate creation in post-production.

Similar to the Inspire 3, this platform's distinctive chip and sophisticated processor design enable support for high-resolution 8K video in a variety of professional codecs, including Apple ProRes RAW, ProRes 422 HQ, H.264, and CinemaDNG.

The D-Gamut color space in CineCore is specially tailored to produce more vibrant greens and accurate skin tones. It boasts an extensive dynamic range of over 14 stops, with the D-Log curve offering meticulous detail in both highlights and shadows, even under challenging lighting conditions.

This feature aligns seamlessly with the color standards of ARRI cinema cameras and is compatible with the ACES workflow. DCCS, with its film-like symmetrical dynamic range distribution, maintains smooth and natural transitions in the brightest areas of the image, solidifying its status as the preferred option for filmmakers who prioritize exceptional image quality and versatile color grading options.

ACES Compatibility: A Game Changer

The Academy Color Encoding System (ACES), a joint initiative by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, expert filmmakers, and color scientists, provides filmmakers with a unified and standardized approach to color management.

ACES guarantees a consistent color experience from the initial image capture through to the final screening. Now officially certified for use with DJI's Ronin 4D, Inspire 3, and Zenmuse X7, ACES maintains the integrity of the filmmaker's artistic vision throughout the production process, ensuring color accuracy across different professional tools and screening protocols.
