DTLA Director + Aputure Dude
Hey David, Ted here from Aputure. You bet it does help someone! I'm sending this to our product manager now. We take these kinds of comments super seriously and you can expect some great changes to come as a result of a post like this.
Thanks for posting your feedback. If you ever want to make any more suggestions or have any questions, feel free to reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ted here from Aputure--Afraid it does not! The auto-focus motor in Nikon lenses isn't strong enough to support such functionality.
Ted here from Aputure--we actually can't do something like this because using a native lens on a camera with an adapter changes the fragment distance from the glass to the sensor!
Ted here from Aputure--just forwarded this to our product manager, Ray. Thanks for the feedback! =)
Ted here from Aputure--we'll have it out in two more months!
Ted here from Aputure-- the battery can be charged while the DEC is in use. The DEC can be charged using any 5V USB charger so you could use anything from the Ronin's USB port to a cellphone charging dongle to get the job done. =)
As for the wheel, we're working on it right now.
