The Ronin-MX from DJI is dual-use gimbal suitable both for mounting on the Matrice 600 aerial platform as well as deployment closer to the ground.

The gimbal is suitable for cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras, and DSLRs weighing up to 10 pounds.

Built to Perform

Designed to resist high G-forces using powerful motors and IMUs, the Ronin-MX is engineered to maintain stability and hold horizon when mounted to an aircraft or a vehicle. When mounted to the Matrice 600 aerial system, it communicates directly with DJI's flight controller. When attached to vehicles, it connects to an optional GPS module that allows it to stabilize actively for a smoother shot

360° Freedom of Movement

A slip ring allows the Ronin-MX to rotate 360° continuously when mounted to aircraft or vehicles, opening up more creative options. This is further enhanced by an increase in tilt-axis range (compared to the Ronin-M) from 90° straight down and beyond to 135°. Popular features of the Ronin series, such as the three modes of operation and SmoothTrack, are also present, giving film makers a range of creative angles and movements

Wireless Control and Transmission

The Ronin-MX is compatible with Lightbridge 2, providing long-range HD video transmission from the air to the ground from up to 3.1 miles away. If combined with the separately available DJI Focus and Focus Expansion Module, focus or aperture can also be pulled remotely with a twist of the wrist. An optional Remote Start/Stop add-on provides the ability to control shooting on a range of airborne cameras

App Control

Using DJI Assistant and the dedicated Assistant app for iOS and Android allows complete customization of the Ronin-MX and its behavior. If connected to Lightbridge 2, the DJI GO app can be used to control the gimbal and see an HD live feed from the camera

System Design

Refined Balance

A redesigned structure moves the Ronin-MX battery from the back to the front. This centers the weight of the camera, minimizing instability when flying directly forwards. It also dramatically increases the Ronin's agility and ability to handle rapid movements or high-G situations

Magnesium Construction

Built extensively of lightweight magnesium, the Ronin-MX weighs just 6.1 lb. This lightness allows it to be mounted to the Matrice 600, even when equipped with cameras as advanced as the RED EPIC, and to vehicles, with a minimum impact on vehicle handling

Power

Strengthened Motors and ESCs

A combination of stronger motors and ESCs makes the Ronin-MX 50% more powerful than the Ronin-M. This additional stiffness and power allows the system to better withstand wind resistance, when mounted to moving vehicles and aircraft, as well as more rapid movements

External Camera Battery

Cameras such as the RED EPIC need an external battery for power. A dedicated position designed for an optional battery plate provides an easy, cable-free mounting point for a second DJI Intelligent Battery. This provides two 12V D-Tap power sources for powering cameras and accessories

Intelligent Batteries

Ronin-MX batteries offer a battery life of up to three hours. Over-charge and over-depletion protection are built in, as is individual cell charge balancing. Remaining power is shown by clear LEDs and in the DJI GO app

Built-In Power Distribution

A dedicated power distribution box keeps wiring to a minimum while providing power to essential accessories. Two regulated 12V D-Taps, one 500mAh full-size USB connector, and a DJI Lightbridge connector enable connectivity and power to nearly everything a filmmaker might need

Control

Solo Mode with Optional Thumb Controller

The separately available Ronin Wireless Thumb Controller makes controlling the Ronin-MX easy and intuitive, enabling the capture of shots that would otherwise be impossible for a single operator

Second Operator Control

A wireless 2.4 GHz remote controller is included with the Ronin-MX enabling a second operator to remotely control pan, tilt, roll, and other functions

Three Operation Modes

Upright Operation Mode
Upright Mode allows the gimbal to be flipped over so the camera can be operated closer to eye level without straining to lift the gimbal. This can be used in various situations, such mounting on the top of the vehicle

Underslung (Suspended) Operation Mode
Suspended Operation Mode is the standard operation mode for Ronin-M. Low slung, close to the ground, or simply holding the gimbal in front of you offers stabilized handheld footage. This mode would also be used when mounted the gimbal on a flying platform such as a multirotor RC helicopter

Briefcase Mode
When a slimmer gimbal profile is needed – such as when moving through doorways or narrow paths – Briefcase Mode is ideal. It allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase

Additional Features

SmoothTrack Technology

Even with only one operator, SmoothTrack technology is designed to ensure the Ronin-MX translates movements into smooth camera angle changes. SmoothTrack settings, from speed to deadband to acceleration, are fully customizable. A "Single Axis Follow Mode" enables two axes to be locked while SmoothTrack guides the camera along only one axis of motion

Universal Mounting

Mount the Ronin-MX to aircraft using a specially designed mounting plate. A separate universal Quick Release system that doubles as a vibration-dampening system allows the Ronin-MX to be connected to everything from jib to tripod and anything in between. This plate isolates the Ronin-MX from unwanted vibrations coming from the platforms it is mounted to

Short Range Wireless Transmission

On the ground, the separately available SRW-60G allows film makers to see the image from the camera without running cables up the Ronin-MX

Note: The SRW-60G is not permitted for use on aerial platforms

It will not, C500 Mark II has a pretty large design. That camera will require a system like the Ronin 2 or a Steadicam system like the Aero 30. Ronin 2 - https://bhpho.to/2qIuYEd Aero 30 - https://bhpho.to/35e4nxW

The Ronin-MX has a propitiatory plate, it is not 501PL compatible. For that you would need to add a 577 Rapid Connect Adapter to the Gimbal. https://bhpho.to/2g7RDlc

The Ronin-MX has a 10 pound load capacity compared to just 8 pounds on the Ronin-M. Also the MX model has a battery positioned on the top and you can add the DJI Battery Power Distributor for Ronin and Ronin-M, B&H # DJCPZM00301, to the back for a dedicated power supply for accessories. Finally the MX offers integration with the DJI Matrice 600 Pro Hexacopter, B&H # DJMAT600PRO. Power Distributor - https://bhpho.to/2TO9D8O Matrice 600 - https://bhpho.to/2qLZQQK

question

Does the Canon C100 Mk II fits in the MX version? I read that the M version dos not fully can hold a C100
Asked by: Rodrigo C.
I don't see why not. I'd remove the grip and reverse the LCD to minimize its profile. The limiting factor in my opinion will be your lens choice.
