The DJI Ronin is a handheld three-axis gimbal stabilization system. Key features include:

  • Supports up to 16 lbs. of equipment

  • Underslung, Upright, and Briefcase shooting modes

  • Remote second-operator control

16-lb. Weight Capacity. The Ronin offers the highest weight tolerance around for this stabilizer style, enabling the use of fully accessorized camera packages (as long as they fit).

Three Shooting Modes. This stabilizer comes programmed with three different shooting modes: Underslung, Upright, and Briefcase. Underslung is the standard operation mode for Ronin, with the camera hanging below the handlebars. Upright Mode allows the gimbal to be flipped over so the camera can be operated closer to eye level without straining. Briefcase mode allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase.

Optional Second-Operator Control. This rental includes a radio transmitter. This allows a second person to control the camera’s pan, roll, and tilt, while the main operator is free to focus on safely navigating through the shot.

Please note: it’s complicated. The DJI Ronin 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. Check the “Resources” section of this page for manuals and software. Here’s DJI’s setup video, but some of our customers have found this video helpful as well.

Power Issues. Although the DJI Ronin features USB and 12V P-Tap power outputs for powering accessories, it doesn’t actually do so very well. Powering accessories off of the Ronin leads to instability in the accessory and in the Ronin itself. If you’d like to use powered accessories on the Ronin, we recommend you add the appropriate batteries to your rig instead of trusting the Ronin’s power outputs.

Battery Warnings. Batteries may be reported by the DJIassistant app as “not DJI Intelligent battery.” This warning does not affect the performance of the gimbal in any way, but feel free to reach out so we can send this battery upstate to a nice, big farm where it can run and be loved for the remainder of its days.

Faulty Plate Lock. We’ve found the Ronin’s camera-plate locking mechanism to be very unreliable. The preferred method for mounting/dismounting cameras is to leave the plate lock lever in the closed (locked) position at all times, and use the included allen key for loosening and tightening.

Poor Light-Weight Support. The Ronin has a difficult time balancing with camera/lens combos that weigh under four pounds. It’s possible, but can be challenging. It might even require adding more arbitrary weight to the camera platform. There’s also an issue with the way some lenses fit onto the camera being balanced. You can find Instructions for solving that problem here.
