Stabilize your camera and set it in motion with this DJI Ronin-SC and Moza Slypod Kit put together by B&H. Mount the Ronin-SC onto the Slypod for smooth and steady motion shots with an easy setup, versatile movement, and powerful camera control.
The DJI Ronin-SC comes with a lens support, extended grip/tripod, camera cables, mounting screws, and a storage case. The Moza Slypod includes a quick release pan-and-tilt head, a tabletop tripod, an ergonomic wood handle, and a carry bag. Both the gimbal and the slider come with USB charging cables to get your production up and running right out of the box.
DJI Ronin-SC Gimbal Stabilizer
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.

An innovative 2-in-1 camera support, the Moza Slypod can be used as a motorized slider or a monopod. Featuring an integrated tripod plate along its length, it can be mounted on a tripod horizontally and used as a motorized slider. It telescopes out 11" at assignable speeds with smooth, steady, and quiet movement thanks to a built-in geared motor with algorithms. In this mode it supports up to 9 lb, allowing you to attach everything from an action cam to a full-size cine camera, as well as a gimbal with a camera.
The telescoping movement is set up via an iOS/Android app in assigned travel routes or repeatable movements. (Please see limitations in app compatibility in the Notes section below.) Speeds can be designated from an ultra-slow minimum of 0.15mm per second to up to 28mm per second. 9 lb is the rated safety payload, while the max payload is 22 lb. You can also attach it vertically on a mini tripod or other support to use as a monopod. In this mode, too, it provides 11" of motorized travel distance, with safety loads up to 20 lb (or 40 lb maximum).
For attaching a camera, there's a 1/4"-20 mounting screw on the end. A quick release pan-and-tilt accessory is included that secures to this end and allows you to set your camera facing in just about any direction. Alternatively, you can mount a ball head, fluid head, or other support. A great option is a gimbal stabilizer, such as one of Moza's gimbals. Attaching a gimbal adds motorized pan and tilt axes to the motorized slides.
The Slypod is designed with a built-in battery with up to a two-hour runtime. A great feature of the Slypod is that the battery can be charged while the Slypod is in use, so you're able to shoot continuously for time-lapse capture, vlogs, live streams, and other applications, especially considering the super-slow minimum travel speed of 0.15mm per second. The battery is charged via a USB charging port that can also be used to integrate other Moza products, for actions such as camera shutter control.
Other than mobile app control, the Slypod can be partially operated via onboard +/- control buttons or an optional wireless remote control. The motor, battery, power button, +/- controls, and USB port are all built-in/located on the bottom end of the Slypod. There's also an illuminating ring in that section that lights up different colors to indicate the battery status. Red, for example, means the Slypod is charging.
The built-in mounting plate for slider mode offers 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads. For vertical mounting, a 1/4"-20 threaded hole is provided on the bottom when the included wooden handle is removed. A mini tripod is supplied for mounting the Slypod in monopod mode.
The Slypod has a weatherproofed design that provides resistance to wind, sand, and dust. Fully collapsed, it measures 21". Fully extended, and with the wooden handle attached on the bottom and the quick release pan-and-tilt accessory on top, it measures 38" from end to end. Made mainly of carbon fiber, it weighs just 1.7 lb.
