DJI Ronin-S Overview

The Ronin-S Essentials Kit includes the Ronin-S gimbal with some key accessories. Doing away with the focus wheel and a few other accessories that come with the standard Ronin-S package, the Essentials Kit provides substantial savings while giving you everything you need to start shooting right away.

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 8 lb. Please see the most current camera and lens compatibility list on the DJI website.

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 tunable 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, and it runs up to 12 hours on a single charge of the battery grip.

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

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 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.

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 with precise gimbal movements.

I Have a canon t6i and a kit 18-55 mm lens and a BG-E18 battery grip with 2 batteries, will this setup be on the heavier side and strain the motors?
Asked by: Ryan
Hi Ryan! Both Matthew and Ben made solid points. I would say the battery grip would be the most troublesome part of your kit because of the added height. I also wanted to mention that if you shoot mostly on the wide end, the Ronin SC might also accommodate your set up, although the Ronin S has more wiggle-room for larger lenses and combinations.

What is the best way to transport the Ronin-S? Say I want to take it on the train to shoot a short video downtown. Can I just put it in a padded camera bag or do I have to completely disassemble it and put it in a hard case? I am also considering the Glidecam HD-PRO. The Glidecam looks like it is rugged enough to just carry on the train. Which would be better for my use case?
Asked by: Bret
You can put the Ronin-S in a padded camera bag. The Ronin-S is a quicker, easier solution.
