DJI has taken full advantage of the National Association of Broadcasters Show to announce their latest devices. If you’re a professional filmmaker (and a bit of a control-freak), you’ll appreciate Force Pro and Master Wheels, two new controls units from the Chinese manufacturer.
The Force Pro is an entry-level device for those of you who are still getting the hang of a gimbal. It boasts a compass and Inertial Measurement Unit to help creators get the perfect, precise camera movement. It has two types of dials – physical and on-screen. The first lets you play with pan, roll and tilt as desired, while the digital ones handle speed on each axis and more. With Force Pro, DJI says the camera can stay fixed on a given frame. If that sounds like your dream come true, get ready to spend $1,200.
Master Wheels is, well, for masters. This is the high-end control unit for Ronin 2 or Ronin S. It’s a modular system that lets you fit up to three wheels for each axis as well as different displays. Master Wheels allows direction, speed, dampening and smoothness adjustments. It’s super precise, to the point of controlling the gimbal in real time!
