I said I would post up a picture with it rigged up on the Ronin-M. Doing some gimbal work today so here ya go. Running D-Tap from the Ronin to the 12-V input on the "Micro Connector Box" and the LANC to the Lanparte trigger on the handle. So in love with not having to remove my hands to hit record. (heart eyes)
I was thinking about getting a Ronin M for my Micro but something better might come out at NAB 2017. BM might put out another smaller camera. I think they put the UM Pro out early for a big reason.
Anybody tried out the focus function with speedbooster maybe with the sigma 18-35 ??
All that has happened was road rash on me and body wear (dents and scrapes) for the Ronin, and snapping the top handle off and bent one of the handles :P . DJI OEM replacement parts aren't cheap either :/ . On my last crash my Pocket camera was the one to give and basically exploded on impact. The Crazy part is every time I've had my Sigma 18-35 mounted and it is still running true as true could be.
Right now I know there is already an improvement to the M series but I believe it holds less weight. But if you do wait until NAB and a new model comes out, the best part about that would be that the Ronin-M could be found for cheaper. I would still get a M if I had to again. I don't see gimbal tech getting to much better. The top ones do exactly what they're suppose to do. Kinda like tripods.
Oh and if you ever see me selling my Ronin-M on here I wouldn't buy it... it's been really abused, but in a "used to it's fullest" type of way.

Is this battery not able to handle the 12v load of both the camera and monitor?
so...what's the timeline/sequence of the battery dying? Right now - I have it hooked up to both the VA and BMMCC and it will shut off (green light out) in 30 sec or so. my voltmeter shows 12+ volts at all times. it's holding fine right now with just the BMMCC recording 60fps Pro-Res HQ.
whelp, spoke too soon - battery blinked off after about 4min with just the BMMCC being powered while recording.
I'll charge it up fully tomorrow when I get back to NYC (in Boston at the moment) and double check the times.
I hate it when threads go completely off topic - am I alone in this?
Yes I agree, let's get back to the Micro LANC/Power adapter. Got mine last week, looks great, fits in the camera with the Wooden Camera Micro cage, which I was worried might cause issues, but alas, not! It works well with the camera handheld setup, where I do not need the remote connected.
I am thinking of adding the BM Micro handle next month which can use the LANC connection for stsrt/stop and auto "push to focus" function when I am using the Panny/Leica lenses. Nice feature, the Pocket camera had, but the Micro does not have unless you add. LANC controller with this feature, like the BM grip.
