The DJI Ronin-SC Gimbal Stabilizer brings many improvements over its predecessor, the Ronin-S, with this smaller and lighter stabilized, three-axis single-handle gimbal, designed for small mirrorless cameras under 4.4 lb. Though the Ronin-SC is smaller, it packs an abundance of features, design enhancements, and technology inside its compact form. The gimbal features stabilization, pan, tilt, and roll control, as well as 360° continuous panning to create steady 3D/360° motion shots.

On its own, the gimbal weighs only 2.4 lb, so it is ultra-portable and makes it easier to hold the gimbal with a mounted camera for longer periods of time. It features two locking modes for balancing your camera and for storage. The sliding quick release camera plate makes it easy to rebalance your camera after you've moved to a new location—balance your camera in the balancing lock position, unmount your camera with the plate, put the gimbal in storage mode and travel, take the gimbal out and remount your camera, unlock and turn the gimbal on and voilà, your camera will still be balanced.

The Ronin-SC features a record button and a joystick for precise gimbal control, as well as a re-center front trigger button to bring the gimbal back to its default position. There is also an M button that you can press and hold to enter Sport Mode, which provides fast tracking response when recording action sequences. Using the Android or iOS app over Bluetooth 5.0, Active Track 3.0 has been updated to help users track a subject with the gimbal without having to use any controls at all. Another handy function is DJI's Force Mobile, which allows you to control your gimbal's motion when it's mounted on a rig or tripod using the gyroscope of your smartphone, allowing you to perform more precise gimbal movements using your own natural motion. Other built-in features include time-lapse and motion-lapse modes.

The Ronin-SC is powered by a 2450mAh rechargeable 18650 LiPo battery built into its handle, which lasts up to 11 hours on a single charge. It is charged via a USB Type-C port and can also provide camera control such as run/stop or focus pulling using one of the included multiport USB cables connected to a compatible camera. There are also 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads on the handle to add accessories such as the included smartphone holder.

Also included with the Ronin-SC are an extended grip/tripod, camera riser, lens support, port cover, Allen wrench, quick release plate with 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw, an M4 screw, a multicamera USB control cable, a multicamera USB Type-C control cable, a USB Type-C charging cable, a USB Type-C to micro-USB adapter, and a storage case.

For a full list of compatible cameras, please see the most current compatibility information on the DJI website.
Automated Creative Features
Use the Ronin-SC to capture 360° panning and rolling panoramic shots using precise gimbal movements.
Force Mobile
Use your phone's gyroscope to motion-control the gimbal movement of the Ronin-SC with ultra-low latency, offering a precise and intuitive control experience.
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.
With Active Track 3.0, you can program a repeatable gimbal movement and follow your subject without operator input.
General Features
Auto Calibration
When Auto Calibration is enabled, the gimbal will automatically set an appropriate motor stiffness value based on the weight of the mounted payload.
Offset Roll Motor
By offsetting the roll motor, the Ronin-SC 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.
Modular Design
The Ronin-SC was built to be modular. Direct-connected and wireless accessories are supported.
The Ronin-SC can mount onto an RC buggy for low-angle shots or even act as a stabilized remote head when mounted to a jib.
Both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 accessory mounts are allocated on the Ronin-SC, providing full support for add-ons such as a microphone, LED light, or a wireless video transmitter.
Additional Features
DJI specialized gimbal drive motors with encoders
Bluetooth 5.0 communication
Hardware joystick and support for virtual joystick operation
Support for time-lapse, track, and panorama
Sport mode support
Roll 3D / 360° rotation support
Quick record function

This product is great and the service is fast along with the price being good and the chance to win 500 makes it the is always nice to have the chance to win a prize and be compensated for a review, this product was purchased for a foster kid who is learning what they love in life so it is great to be able to possibly expand their visual media tool kit with the chance to grow it even more. Thank you B & H.

Can't seem to get the camera to shoot at all, lots of info online but all is very broad and not specific at all. Stabilizer seems to work great tho!

This gimbal is great, very compact and travel friendly! I have had issues in the past with it due to manufacture problems but when the gimbal is working it works very well. I can bring it everywhere due to its size! Although the size is great for being portable it does have trouble holding better grade lenses! I have found myself needing to use smaller prime lenses on this gimbal which is not horrible but I do wish it was easier to balance holding larger L series canon lenses!

Gimbal works very good

The price is right and the gimbal works well. I wish it gave you a little more room behind the camera. If you are using a larger/heavier lens, you are back up against the pitch motor.

Has worked great so far. I have used an IPhone and a canon T8 on it. Every once in a while, it does a shake and I do not know why it does this.

Not good for larger mirrorless cameras

Frustrating. Purchased the SC to use with my Canon R5 and it is really too big for this gimbal. DJI's website says it's compatible with the R5 but the eyepiece hits the back motor when tipping up. Especially if your trying to use the R5 with older EF lenses and the adaptor, don't get the Ronin SC get the larger Ronin S.

Issues with Nikon

Overall the Gimball is awesome, the sad part it trying to get a USB cable from my Nikon to the Gimbal. The 2 cables supplied don't work, I ordered a cable for micro to usb c and it is too short. Seems next to impossible to find the right cable that isn't a foot long. The Ronin says it is compatible with Nikon, it should have a cable for it.

The GH5 works beautifully on this gimbal. I see It's bigger and heavier than the model you mentioned so I don't see why not. As for the interface with the cord and software? I've no clue.

Is the DJI Ronin - SC compatible with the Canon EOS Rebel T7i?
Asked by: Johnny
From what I understand, you can definitely use them together but you cannot use the integrated buttons of the gimbal with Canon Rebel cameras. Only cameras that have the USB-C port or that can wirelessly connect.
