A first look at the newly released DJI Ronin-S. This is more of a preview video. He plans on making a more in-depth video and also compare the Ronin-S to the Zhiyun Crane 2 gimbal.
The DJI Ronin-S is a miniaturized version of the larger Ronin gimbal stabilizers. The gimbal positions it’s self as a scalable set-up for integrating DSLR and mirrorless cameras into professional-grade studios gear. The one-handed form factor of the Ronin-S lends itself to lighter cameras. But don’t let its size fool you; the Ronin-S has a lot going on under the hood. Separate modules are available for the handle and accessory docks, allowing you to customize the gimbal based on how you wish to operate it.
The Ronin-S is built to support cameras as large as the Canon EOS 5D IV and it will be able to carry up to 40kg / 8 lbs of camera and lens. It comes with quite a few innovations including the ability to compensate for zoom lenses, a Push Mode that lets users adjust the pan, tilt and roll balances while the gimbal is still on, and a battery that DJI claims will last for up to 12 hours of filming.
