DJI, the world’s leader in creative camera technology, has finally released the details for the highly anticipated Ronin-S, which was launched at CES 2018. Designed for DSLR and mirrorless cameras, the Ronin-S utilizes DJI’s powerful three-axis gimbal technology, delivering smooth, shake-free video and crisp photos, while also adding a cinematic and professional look to your work. The Ronin-S allows users to be in the moment, with creative freedom on the move.

Good product design can redefine the way we interact with the world. The Ronin-S is no different. The ergonomic design of the Ronin-S frees unwanted shake when shifting from underslung to an upright position in one smooth take. The detachable design offers numerous usage scenarios. Mount it to an RC Buggy for low to the ground tracking shots or let it act as a stabilized remote head when attached to a jib. This detachment feature also makes it more convenient for easy storage.

Operating the Ronin-S is an effortlessly smooth process. First with an easy setup, and then with Auto Tune directly on the gimbal for optimal torque control. Powerful, high torque motors actively stabilize your shot when mounted to moving platforms at speeds of up to 75 kph.

SmoothTrack applies to all three axes, allowing users to transition from motion to camera angle with one hand. Switch between three user profiles with a simple click on the M button, and capture fast moving objects with new Sport Mode by holding it down. Stay focused on your subject with the easy to control Focus Wheel. When a compatible camera system connects to the Ronin-S, you can pull focus via the included cable. An optional external motor can also be added, bringing broader compatibility to all lens types while enhancing precision control.

The most dramatic scenes unfold with imaginative, carefully planned shots. The Ronin-S supports almost any DSLR or mirrorless set up on the market, offering direct camera control. The Ronin-S includes a suite of automated features to let you produce even more creative professional footage, unlocking your true potential as a filmmaker. The detachable modular design of the Ronin-S makes it easy to fit inside a backpack on your travels. Thanks to the industry standard quick-release plate design, you can easily mount the camera onto the gimbal for tracking shots or on a tripod for stills.
