The Ronin-MX 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer and Steadimate 30 Kit from B&H offers a professional-level camera stabilization platform with multiple options for operation. This kit includes both the DJI Ronin-MX 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal Stabilizer and the Steadicam Steadimate 30 Support System. Working together, these two devices allow the operator to shoot freely and unencumbered. The system checks linear and vertical motion, as well as compensating for pan, tilt, and movement along the horizon axes, so all unwanted motion is absorbed and eliminated.

By itself, the Ronin-MX is dual-use gimbal suitable both for mounting on the Matrice 600 aerial platform as well as deployment closer to the ground. It features magnesium construction to yield high rigidity while keeping the weight down. The gimbal is suitable for cameras weighing up to 10 pounds.

Adding in the Steadimate 30 Support System adds another layer of stabilization and freedom for movement. The Steadimate 30 system is a classic arm and vest kit with a Steadimate gimbal mount that allows you to attach the Ronin-MX. It incorporates a rotating joint that allows for tilt-axis manipulation while the Ronin-MX is mounted. In addition to more freedom of movement and motion absorption, the Steadimate 30 system reduces arm fatigue by distributing the weight of the gimbal setup over the operator's torso. Having the weight more evenly distributed allows for the operator to more easily accomplish long takes and complex maneuvers with fewer breaks before or after shots.

  • DJI Ronin-MX 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer

    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. Improving over the Ronin-M, it features magnesium construction to yield high rigidity while keeping the weight down. The gimbal is suitable for cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras, and DSLRs weighing up to 10 pounds. Out of the box it supports two-operator operation, and includes a radio controller (transmitter) for the camera operator. There is also an optional Thumb Controller (available separately) for solo operation. When installed on the Matrice 600 aircraft, the gimbal can be controlled via the DJI GO app. An included universal mounting adapter allows it to be adapted for use with jibs, car mounts, and various other types of camera support equipment. There is also a handlebar for handheld use.

    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

  • Steadicam Steadimate 30 Support System for Motorized Gimbals

    Applying Steadicam's camera stabilizer experience to motorized gimbal stabilizers yields the Steadimate 30 Support System. Combining a classic arm and vest kit with the Steadimate gimbal mount allows you to mount a motorized gimbal, such as a Freefly MoVI or DJI Ronin, set up with a camera and ancillary gear weighing up to 30 pounds, and reap the benefits of linear-axis stabilization and better weight distribution. During setup, just remove one of your gimbal stabilizer's handles and replace it with the Steadimate gimbal mount, which in turn, secures to the Steadicam arm. The Steadimate incorporates a rotating joint which allows for tilt-axis manipulation while mounted. Balancing weights for fine-tuning and all necessary mounting hardware are included.

    Linear Axis Stabilization
    By themselves, 3-axis motorized gimbals can compensate for movement in the pan, tilt, and horizon axes. However, linear movement, especially vertical movement, remains unchecked. Implementing the spring-loaded isolation arm and vest from traditional Steadicam stabilizers absorbs any unwanted vertical motion brought about by walking/running or arm fatigue.
    Weight Distribution
    While the spring-loaded arm provides additional movement isolation, the vest reduces arm fatigue by distributing the weight of the gimbal setup over the operator's torso. Having the weight more evenly distributed allows for the operator to more easily accomplish long takes and complex maneuvers with fewer breaks before or after shots.
