DJI’s First Single-Handed Stabiliser Offers Professional Quality At A Competitive Price

DJI, the world’s leader in creative camera technology, has revealed the pricing and availability of the Ronin-S, DJI’s first single-handed stabiliser for DSLR and mirrorless camera systems. The Ronin-S will retail for 749 EUR (669 GBP) with pre-orders beginning May 29th on www.dji.com, DJI flagship stores and authorized dealers worldwide, with shipments starting late June.

About the Ronin-S

Utilizing DJI’s powerful three-axis gimbal technology, the Ronin-S delivers smooth, shake-free video and crisp photos, adding a cinematic and professional look to your work.

Powerful high-torque motors support a payload of up to 3.6kg to accommodate the most popular camera and lens combinations including the Canon 1D and 5D, Panasonic GH and Sony Alpha series. Users will have a control over camera parameters settings for compatible cameras. Its stabilisation system compensates for zoom lenses with external zooming barrels and higher magnification ratios, while its advanced stabilisation algorithms work with both in-camera and in-lens optical stabilisation technology. The maximum tested operation speed is 75kph using a Panasonic GH5 and 50mm lens(35 mm Format Equivalent) with an optional Top Hotshoe Bracket connected.

Capturing stabilised video has never been easier because the Ronin-S was designed for easy setup and use. A new Push Mode lets you adjust the pan, tilt and roll axis by hand while the Ronin-S is powered on and an Auto Tune function automatically adjusts the strength of the motors to speed up gear prep so you can spend more time filming and less time setting up your gear. The Ronin-S has a comfortable, ergonomic design that helps capture smooth cinematic movements from upright to flashlight mode to underslung positions without obstructing the camera’s display. Ronin-S also features DJI’s intelligent battery system that is built into the handle and has an operating time of 12 hours.

The high-precision joystick changes the camera position to help frame your shot perfectly while a host of dedicated buttons allow operators to control various settings such as toggling between SmoothTrack profiles or to begin and stop recording[1]. An included Focus Wheel can be mounted to either side of the handle via the 8-pin ports on each side and a new Sport mode allows seamless transitions to fast movements with tight and quick subject following speed.

Harness intelligent shooting modes and advanced customization on the Ronin-S through the DJI Ronin mobile app such as creating complex camera moves automatically like Panorama, Motionlapse, Timelapse and Track that lets you designate specific camera positions in a scene and rotate between them on demand. Operators can also change SmoothTrack settings including the Speed, Acceleration and Deadband for each axis, save them in three profiles and toggle between them with the dedicated M button on the Ronin-S. Vital camera settings can be directly adjusted via the Ronin app and the optional Focus Command Center accessory allows for quick changes when needed[2].

Ronin-S uses an industry standard Manfrotto quick release system and is compatible with a variety of DJI Pro Accessories to capture any scene and expand your creative freedom on set or on location. Supported optional accessories include a Focus Command Center consisting of a menu screen allowing for advanced gimbal, camera, and focus control without a mobile device; DJI Force Pro; DJI Master Wheels; the Ronin 2 remote controller; and an external focus motor for manual lenses that pairs with the included Focus Wheel. The Ronin-S can also be used with the DJI vehicle mount, jib mount and the dual-handle system for when an added level of comfort and stability is required.

The Ronin-S firmware that supports camera parameter control will become available in early July.
