X-H2S and DJI Ronin RS2--Solved--Not So Fast


Recommended Posts

Hello All:
 

I recognize that the Fujifilm X-H2S is not on compatable list for Ronin RS2.  However, has anyone tried this combination using micro HDMI female to male HDMI?  Besides stabalization what works?  Most important to me are starting/stopping video recording and being able to adjust focus with the focus motor.

Thank you in advance.

Hello All:

For those of you that are interested, I purchased an X-H2S and connected it with my RS2.  The only changes from using an X-T3 was that I used the included (with the RS2 Pro) mini HDMI to Full HDMI cable and set Connections on the X-H2S to Select Connection Setting/Selection 3: USB Tether Shooting Auto.

With the above I was able to connect the RavenEye to my iPad and see what was in the field of view of the camera.  I was also able to start/stop video record and alter aperture, shutter speed and ISO.  I also  successful used film profiles of Flog and HLG.

It appears for these items, that the FujiFilm SDK for the X-T3 is similar to that what might be used for the X-H2S.

Well not so fast.  X-H2S firmware 1.03 everything worked fine for my needs.  Then FujiFiim updated the firmware to version 2.0.  Now, with USB Tether/Auto the record does not stay latched in.  However, there is a workaround.  Instead of USB Tether/Auto use USB Tether Fixed.  When you do this the first attempt at record will not latch.  However, a successive attempt will start movie recording.  So, if you want to use the X-H2S with the RS2 make sure you do not upgrade to FujiFilm firmware version 2.0 unless you want to use the workaround.

I spoke with FujiFilm Technical Support.  There is no way to roll back the firmware.  This seems to be the case with Sony as well.  I believe this to be dumb engineering.  If they break something with a firmware update you are screwed until the manufacturer issues a new firmware.

So three, big cheers for DJI.  At least you can roll back the firmware.

Judging the lack on interest in this thread, I must be the only idiot in the world that is attempting to make this work!

You are not an idiot and certainly not alone. This is simply because this forum is relatively unknown on the WWW. As for the topic, you could have just nicely asked Jordan Drake from DPReview: https://www.dpreview.com/about/staff/jordan.drake

Thank you for the suggestion about DP Review.

I am able to get by with the work around.  A little more patience on my part perhaps and it works similarly with the X-H2s set to USB Tether Auto and have to since returned to this setting.  Just a PITA as I have to hit record twice.

BTW.  Not any real interest on the DJI RS2 User Forum either.
