The DJI Ronin was and still is one of the most popular 3-axis gimbal stabiliser systems available today. With its high payload capacity, camera operators can easily fly a Canon C300, FS7's or even RED Epics. However, the added weight required to run with such cameras made the gimbal a bit on the heavy side and required usually additional support in order to operate for prolonged periods of time. The RONIN M supports camera/lens payloads of up to 8 lbs, or 3.6 kg, and features tool-less adjustment throughout.
Users with smaller cameras like the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera or the Sony A7s, could still use the bigger RONIN, but it is generally considered overkill for such small and lightweight cameras. And this is why DJI came up with the new, smaller "brother" to the RONIN - the RONIN M.
The RONIN M was specifically designed with smaller and lightweight cameras in mind. Easy to balance just like the original RONIN, the RONIN M is small enough to be packed in a carry-on or a backpack and users can get buttery smooth shots in a matter of seconds.
Undersling and Briefcase modes, as well as upright modes are available on the RONIN M as well. Capturing tracking shots at eye level is a great option for getting realistic and smooth shots. For those needing those low-angle smooth "footsteps" or "skateboard" shots - the briefcase mode can help you get those shots.
FEATURES and HIGHLIGHTS
Save time and start shooting professionally stabilized video in under 5 minutes. Mount your camera to the Ronin-M, quickly balance it, and then tap a button. The upgraded ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology is more precise than before and completes the tuning and balancing processes with no tools necessary. Easy and efficient.
Capture tight shots, even when you have almost no space to work, and easily transport your Ronin-M. The top handle bars quickly and easily twist off, allowing you to minimize its size, achieve different shooting configurations, and pack or unpack it in seconds.
Your Ronin-M stands up to rugged use in any filming environment. Featuring a superbly strong and rigid magnesium frame, the Ronin-M brings increased stiffness and reduced weight. Notoriously difficult to manufacture and mold, magnesium brings you a new, more exact shooting experience while maintaining easy maneuverability and increasing options on set.
Increased rigidity is provided by a single, complete piece of fine-tooled magnesium that forms the U-shaped arm holding the camera plate. Only made possible by DJI’s large manufacturing reach and expertise, this unified design eliminates imperfections that are common in systems made of multiple pieces assembled together. This arm gives you not only greater stability but also reliability, as there is no po
