The DJI Ronin 2 Handheld Stabilizer is a handheld 3-axis gimbal stabilization system for cinema cameras up to 30 pounds. Key features include:


  • Supports up to 30 pounds of equipment

  • Dual hot swappable batteries for all day shooting

  • Underslung, Upright, and Briefcase shooting modes

  • Camera control for select cameras

Long-Awaited Ronin Update. The Ronin 2 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer, as the name might imply, is the successor to DJI’s extremely popular Ronin 3-axis brushless gimbal. For the sequel, DJI has improved nearly every spec on the sheet and brought the Ronin line up to parity with the MoVI Pro in most respects and even surpassed it in a few. These improvements do come at the cost of a 12 lb. gimbal, so plan to have a harness like the Easyrig Vario 5, numerous operator breaks, or the body of a professional wrestler.

Supports Up To 30 Pounds Of Equipment. The most eye-catching update from the first generation Ronin is the nearly doubled 30 pound payload capacity. That’s room for a whole lot of camera! DJI promises the same precision you have grown accustomed to with the full array of Ronin products, and the beefed up motors, new stabilization algorithm, and GPS allow for operation in wind speeds of up to 75 mph. According to the Ronin 2 FAQ, the ARRI Alexa MiniRED Dragon, ARRI Alexa XT, Blackmagic URSA mini, and Sony FS7 are all listed as compatible.

Versatile Gimbal Mount. Our Ronin 2 comes with the new ring grip for a plethora of hand held options, and DJI also designed the Ronin 2 to be more easily and quickly swapped between mounts and shooting situations. You no longer need to change the orientation of the camera for transitions between upright and underslung modes, and now the yaw motor can be locked, creating a 2-axis system for more traditional steadicam style rigs.

New Features. Simplified Operation. Fine tuning of camera balance has always been at least mildly frustrating. DJI has attempted to rectify this by adding fine adjustment knobs around the camera cage. The adjustment of gimbal settings has also been streamlined with the addition of a touchscreen and new user interface. The Ronin 2 can be adjusted via bluetooth 4.0 and the redesigned Gimbal Assistant app on devices running a minimum of Windows 7, MacOS 10.11, IOS 9, or Android 4.4.

Dual Hot Swappable Batteries. The Ronin 2’s dual battery slots allow for fresh batteries to be added without having to power down the system, and they also provide enough juice to power your camera and accessories without the additional weight or headache of mounting a d-tap power source. If extreme weather is your thing, the self-heating batteries will let you shoot in temperatures as low as -4°F. DJI says to expect 8 hours of battery life when using two batteries to power just the gimbal, and additionally powering a RED Dragon and accessories will reduce that down to 2 hours. Batteries will recharge in about 1-1/2 hours.

Please note: it’s complicated. The DJI Ronin 2 isn’t what you’d call a “turn-key” solution to camera stabilization. It requires a significant amount of training and practice to get good results, so you’ll want at least one full day of learning before using it on a shoot.
