The Ronin 3-axis stabiliser has been a set favourite for owner/operators and cinematographers using Super 35 cameras like the Canon EOS C300, and Sony FS7 among many others, thanks to its no-hassle approach to balancing and hefty payload combined with reliable and strong motors. Such operators have been getting smooth shots that may have been otherwise impossible to achieve, and now DJI is releasing the much-awaited wireless Thumb controller unit to allow for even greater control over your Ronin and camera.
The Ronin thumb controller is quite simple to setup and use continuing the tradition set forth not just by the Ronin but all DJI products - including the popular Phantom series quadcopters. The wireless Thumb Controller makes controlling your Ronin or Ronin-M easier and more intuitive, even with only a single operator. Capture shots that are difficult or impossible now, and start using your gimbal to its full potential.
This valuable tool brings a whole new level of freedom and flexibility to your Ronin and Ronin-M, allowing you to control the direction of your camera and access or set key settings during your shoots.
Easy and fast to setup, the Thumb Controller mounts to your Ronin or Ronin-M with no tools required. A clear OLED screen lets you access menu items and features, while a long battery life and long wireless range extends possibilities on set. The thumb controller mounts easily on the handle rods via a clamp and also features an easy pairing and setup.
The DJI Ronin thumb controller features a custom-made pressure sensitive stick allows you to quickly change the settings, speed, and direction of your gimbal, all at the flick of your thumb. Control where your camera is facing and access advanced settings including calibration, channel settings, and preset profiles. Making changes is even faster than when using the Ronin remote controller or mobile app, and can be done during any of your shots.
Note that the original Ronin requires an external receiver to be used with the Thumb Controller, while the Ronin-M’s built-in receiver is immediately compatible and ready to be used.
