DJI Ronin-S Overview

  • 1Description

Whereas the standard DJI Ronin-S comes with a focus wheel, control cables, a power adapter, and other accessories, the Essentials Kit includes the gimbal and the key accessories required to go out and begin shooting. There's a difference of only several accessories, accompanied by a substantially more affordable cost, and you can always add a focus wheel or other accessory at a later point.

The Ronin-S represents a scalable ecosystem for integrating DSLR and mirrorless cameras into professional-grade workflows. The single-handed form factor of the Ronin-S supports up to 8 lb and runs up to 12 hours on a single charge of the included battery grip. Additionally, separate modules are available sold separately for the handle and accessory docks, allowing you to customize the gimbal based on how you wish to operate it.

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.

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

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.
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

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.
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.
The Ronin-S can mount onto 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 on 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.
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 with precise gimbal movements.

    DJI Ronin-S Reviews

    Ronin-S Essentials Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 219.
    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 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 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 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 1 out of 5 by from DJI Customer Support Is Horrible - Ronin S is Great. I purchased my Ronin S, expecting a very good product, which I did get, however, I had an issue out of the box. I decided to contact DJI and they said they would replace it with a new unit since I had purchased it within the last 15 days. I mailed it to them, they held it for about 2 weeks trying to convince me there was no issue, finally they broke down and said they would send me a new replacement. The so called replacement comes in the mail and it is a refurbished and/or 2nd hand unit from who knows where. I really dont understand how I paid for a brand new unit, only to get a used one which I couldve gotten anywhere else but B&H. BEWARE of DJI customer service, its as bad as everyone claims. Ronin S - Great B&H Support - Great *Note: B&H goes through a 3rd party to replace DJI products, this is also a little odd.

    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 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!

    Will this gimbal support the setup of Sony A7III with sony lens 24-105mm F.4? will this come with sony cable? Will the zoom button work with the lens 24-105mm ? Thank you
    Asked by: Do
    The Sony A7III and the Sony 24-105mm F4 lens are both on the compatibility list with the Ronin-S. You will be able to balance that combination of camera and lens. However this kit does not include any cables. You will need to purchase B&H # DJRONINP13CB which is the DJI Ronin-S Multi-Camera Control Cable (Sony Multi Port). However the 24-105mm is not a servo zoom lens.

    Hello, is this fully compatible with a Sony a7s?
    Asked by: Lucas
    The Sony A7S will work very well with the Ronin-S. The kit does not include any cables though, you would need to purchase separately B&H # DJRONINP13CB if you wanted to control start/stop recording from the gimbal.

    hi, if the essential kit doesn't come with the power adapter or charger, how do i charge the battery?
    Asked by: Sebastian
    The kit includes a USB C type cable. You just plug that into a power adapter (like from your phone) or a computer and it charges the Ronin battery. The battery for the Ronin lasts a very long time.

    Asked by: tom
    You will be able to use the Nikon D850 and D810 with this gimbal. However this kit does not include any of the control cables. You would need to add B&H # DJCPRN001101 to control the D850. DJI has not yet developed a cable for the D810.

    Hi... Will this work with a SONY FDR-AX53? Thanks
    Asked by: Darrell
    The Ronin-S is designed for Mirrorless and DSLR cameras. However it may be able to balance a smaller camcorder like the Sony AX53 as well. You will need to test it out to see the results and you may not have full range of movement and performance when using a camcorder instead of a Photo Camera.
