DJI Ronin-S overview

  • 1Description

The DJI Ronin-S is more than just a miniaturized version of the larger Ronin gimbal stabilizers; it represents a scalable ecosystem for integrating DSLR and mirrorless cameras into professional-grade workflows. The single-handed form factor of the Ronin-S lends itself to lighter camera payloads, up to eight pounds. But don't let its size fool you; the Ronin-S has a lot going on under the hood. Separate modules are available for the handle and accessory docks, allowing you to customize the gimbal based on how you wish to operate it. While using the conventional battery grip, the Ronin-S will last up to 12 hours on a single charge.

Between the front trigger, the rear mode button, and the joystick, precise gimbal control lets you obtain the shots you require. The front trigger can lock the gimbal when held, re-center the gimbal when tapped twice, and engage the Selfie mode by turning 180° when tapped three times. Press the mode button to engage three customizable operation profiles, each with tuneable speed and response for different shooting scenarios. If fast-moving subjects are your forte, the Sport mode delivers extra-quick response times and fast gimbal movements, up to a maximum speed of 45 mph. With this operation flexibility, the Ronin-S will fit into documentary, event, and feature film workflows.

Everything you need to get started shooting with the Ronin-S comes with the gimbal. A sliding camera mounting plate for attaching your camera and balancing works with the included lens support and riser to secure your mirrorless or DSLR camera of choice. USB Type-C and Type-B cables are included for camera control functions like start/stop and focus pulling (depending on camera compatibility). A 24W USB charger is included for quick-charging the gimbal. The gimbal and all included accessories can be stored inside the included case, which helps protect your equipment during storage and transport.

Automated Creative Features

Panorama
Use the Ronin-S to capture panoramic photos using precise gimbal movements.
Time-Lapse and Motion-Lapse
Using the DJI Ronin app for Android and iOS you can control your camera to take photos at specific intervals which, when combined and sequenced in post, can yield creative time-lapse movies. You can also pre-set a path for the gimbal to follow during time-lapse photography inside the app as well. Gimbal movement adds dynamic motion to your finished product without using post-production tools that can decrease resolution.
Tracking
With the Track function, you can program a repeatable gimbal movement. Having this functionality is great for when you need to block out scenes precisely and require complex camera moves to be executed without active operator input.

General Features

Included Focus Wheel
A Focus Wheel is included for pulling focus with select camera systems with compatible lenses, or with a separately available focus motor. It attaches right to the side of the unit for seamless integration and a unified appearance.
Offset Roll Motor
By offsetting the roll motor, the Ronin-S holds the camera above the roll axis, leaving the camera's LCD screen unblocked. This design also minimizes the camera shake that occurs when transitioning from upright to underslung modes and vice versa.
SmoothTrack
Customize the response of the Ronin-S to fit your shooting style. Two response types can be saved and instantly recalled with a single click of the mode button. Go from smooth camera movement to rapid response with the flick of a switch to be ready for any kind of shooting situation.
Modular Design
The Ronin-S was built to be modular. Direct-connected and wireless accessories are supported. For example, separately available DJI control devices, such as the Master Wheels and Master Force, enhance the usability of the Ronin-S in professional scenarios. The S-Bus connection supports third-party controls compatible with that standard protocol.
Versatility
The Ronin-S can mount to an RC buggy for low angle shots or even act as a stabilized remote head when mounted to a jib. The DJI Focus Command Unit can be mounted to the accessory dock, enabling creators to pull focus when operating with the standard handle. You can also attach the Ronin-S to a dual-handheld bar without compromising control of the gimbal, focus, or the camera shutter.
Multitasker
Multiple accessory mounts are allocated on the Ronin-S, providing full support for add-ons such as a microphone, LED light, or a wireless video transmitter. Compatibility with DJI control devices such as Master Force provides intuitive controls. The Master Wheels are also able to provide remote operators precise gimbal movements.

Advanced 32-bit ARM processor
DJI specialized gimbal drive motors with encoders
Support for 2.4/5.8 GHz receivers
Support for D-Bus receiver

    DJI Ronin-S reviews

    Ronin-S is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 162.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Defective plate mechanism Today I received my long awaited Dji Ronin-S just to receive a defective item. The problem that I am having is with the plate lock mechanism, it locks but it does not unlock. The locking mechanism gets stuck and because of it, I was not able to calibrate (balance) the camera. You simply can't make any adjustments once it locks, the plate does not free up when the lever is pulled back to the unlocked position. I would like to know if this is something other people are experiencing. As of now I am exchanging the product, once I get a new unit and are able to make it work will update review. Otherwise, be on the lookout for similar problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit of a beast.... Haven't had it for very long but have used it a few times now. First thing is it's a beast. If you're not someone who is a bit stronger, don't get one. I'm a big guy and I can handle it but, someone smaller will struggle with it--especially on longer shoots. I hate the case it comes in. DJI has a long history of providing horrible cases. You have to take the whole gimbal out of balance to fit into the case. Annoying to be sure. Thankfully, balancing isn't all that hard but it would be nice to be able to put it into the case without ruining the balance of it. Definitely well-made and sturdy. Feels like a quality product. Just very heavy for a gimbal like this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product Solid, but with battery failure. I am very disappointed with the DJI brand, I bought the product two months ago, I waited 3 weeks for it to reach my hands. After arriving, I tried it and it worked, it is something complicated to calibrate but not impossible, I like the design of the product, it feels solid. After using it 1 time, I put it in its box and after 3 weeks, I take it out again and it does not work, I connect the cable to charge the battery and it does not work. I tried another cable and it does not work either. I already contacted DJI support but they do not answer yet. I hope you have a solution. But soon the battery does not work. I was very excited to use it this weekend in an event but this time DJI failed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nikon Incompatible Based on DJI's website, it shows a list of compatible Nikon Cameras, including the D500 listed as "Start/stop recording video Capture photo Pull focus (with supported lenses) Adjust camera parameters" However, as soon as you connect the cable from the ronin S to the Camera, the live view shuts off and the camera becomes a brick. The gimbal also shuts down completely. The following is a response from a DJI RnD Engineer on the DJI ronin forum "When plugging a USB cable into a Nikon camera, some of them turn off live view. This is a Nikon issue and nothing DJI can do." -DJI Paul DJI should not be advertising that the cameras are compatible when they actually arent.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 50% failure rate for us Bought two. One died the first day and is on the way back to DJI. The other is decent, on par with the Zhiyun Crane 2. Maybe a touch better. On the other hand we've had 5x of the Crane 2 since they shipped and not had a single failure. That would push me to buy the Crane 2 instead of these easily. Quality control may get better from DJI with updates of these... but for now I'd pass on this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it!... almost thought I had to return it tho!!! So excited when I first got it today. Charged it up for about 30 min just to try it out. I turned on the battery, turned on the gimbal , heard the "beep"... and NOTHING happened.. Motors didn't do a thing. I thought I had a lemon straight out of the box. The mode 1 led was dimly flashing on and off.. come to realize that it was in a standby mode.. double clicked the power buttons and motors came alive!!.. Thank GOD!! Gonna have to work out more cuz geez!!!.. this thing isn't light!.. other than that, I'm in gimbal heaven!! Can't wait to shoot with it!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nikon users beware! DJI claims the ronin-s works with Nikon cameras. It does NOT when plugging your cable from the ronin to your nikon camera it locks the camera up and the gimbal loses power. When the gimbal goes limp it then causes your lens to crash into the gimbal. I have called DJI support several time and they blame Nikon. I contacted Nikon and they had no knowledge of the issue. The gimbal works great other than this HUGE issue. DJI needs to update the spec sheet and remove Nikon from supported cameras! Wait 6 months or a year and let them get the bugs worked out. At this point a WASTE OF MONEY FOR NIKON USERS!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from impressed so far I previously had a DSLR stabilizer and was frequently disappointed with getting it balanced and then it staying balance during a shoot. I purchased a Ronin-M and liked it much better for stabilizing, but it always felt bulky when trying to take it out on the disc golf course to shoot footage. The Ronin-S is working great for grabbing and being on the go when it comes to getting stabilized shots. Balancing took some time, but getting it to balance went much faster than the previously mentioned stabilizers. I am happy with my purchase. I am disappointed that the link features do not work with the Sony A9 and hope that they will soon make it work.
