The DJI Ronin-S 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer is a compact, single-grip gimbal designed to work with popular DSLR and mirrorless cameras up to 7.9 pounds. Key features include:

  • Supports up to 7.9 pounds of equipment

  • Designed for DSLR and mirrorless cameras

  • Offset roll motor enables monitoring from camera displays

  • Provides 12v accessory power and multiple options for mounting

Designed For DSLR & Mirrorless Cameras. The DJI Ronin-S 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer is a lightweight and compact gimbal that DJI has designed for single-handed stabilization of DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The gimbal is capable of supporting up to 7.9 pounds of equipment for a wide range of camera and lens compatibility.

Offset Roll Motor. A new DJI offset gimbal design keeps the roll motor positioned below a camera’s integrated monitor and helps reduce weight by eliminating the necessity for external monitoring. The design also improves stabilization when swapping between upright and underslung modes.

Great Battery Life. The Ronin-S can stabilize a camera for up to 12 hours with a single charge of its built-in battery, and charging a battery to full capacity will require approximately two hours. Keep in mind that battery life will vary based on the weight and balance of the attached camera and lens.

Accessory Support. The Ronin-S has dual 4-pin CAN Bus connectors on the camera platform and two 8-pin near the control panel for connecting and powering compatible accessories for focus control, audio capture, and monitoring. 1/4-20 threaded sockets around the grip provide multiple options for attaching these accessories. The camera platform itself uses common Manfrotto 501PL type quick release plates.

Removable Grip. The gimbal’s grip can be removed to open up the device to new mounting options. This opens the Ronin-S to the option of becoming a jib-mounted, remote controlled pan and tilt head or to simply attach alternative control accessories such as optional two-handed grips. Do note this requires yet-to-be-released accessory cables / mounts that are not included with the rental.

Q & A

What is the Ronin-S’s default password?
  • The default password is 12345678

Do you include a lens support?
  • No. A lens support is not included with the rental. In our experience, this bracket is very rarely needed. If your shooting conditions are particularly rough, you can request the lens support in the "special instructions" box at checkout.

What cameras can be controlled by the gimbal?
  • Select Canon, Panasonic, Sony, Hasselblad, and Nikon are supported. Check this list to make sure your preferred camera / lens combo is supported.

Is the Ronin-S easy to pick up and use?
  • While a little simpler than the larger Ronins, the DJIRonin-S 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.

What do I need to know about Ronin-S battery life and charging?
  • You’ll get up to 12 hours of battery life from one charge, and the battery will take approximately two hours to charge.

What is the maximum supported weight?
  • The Ronin-S can support camera & lens combos up to 7.9 pounds, but keep in mind that just because your gear is under weight does not mean it will balance well.
