The DJI Ronin M 3-Axis Gimbal Stabiliser is a professional quality camera support rig designed by one of the worlds most renowned camera stabilisation manufacturers. It provides impressive shake reduction and allows for precision camera movement, in order to help professional filmmakers, deliver smooth inspiring, cinematic footage.
Durable Magnesium Lightweight Construction
The Ronin M is constructed out of magnesium which is the lightest structural metal available, providing the perfect blend of strength and portability. The U-shaped arm that connects to the camera plate is one solid piece of metal to remove any risk of the components separating and also to provide greater stability. The rig supports a weight of 3.6kg making it ideal for both Mirrorless and DSLR systems like the Sony A7S, the Panasonic GH4 or the Nikon D750 or Canon 5D cameras.
3-Axis Stabilisation with Integrated SmoothTrack
By compensating for vibration and movement along 3 axes the Ronin Gimbal is able to filter out unwanted shakes using the same technology that DJI pioneered in their original Ronin System. This gimbal boasts a high level of control for solo operators with the SmoothTrack Control mode which allows you to translate your pan, tilt and roll actions into smooth camera movements without needing another operator.
Automatic Balancing Setup
Setup has never been easier with the Ronin M’s Auto Tune Stability (ATS) function. All you have to do is place the rig on the included balancing stand, with the camera and lens attached and tap the ATS button. The gimbal will then tune and balance the motors based on the weight of your equipment, making it quicker than ever to setup and shoot even when changing lenses on set.
Mobile App for Additional Configuration
Further fine tuning of the gimbals balancing and complete customisation of the performance of SmoothTrack is available using the DJI Assistant app. The app allows you to easily configure of all system parameters on the fly via Bluetooth giving you complete control over the way the gimbal performs.
Choice of Operation Modes
Featuring 3 different operations modes the gimbal is suitable for any shooting scenario.
Upright Mode is designed to allow you to shoot at eye-level or if needed to shoot above eye-level. It is perfectly suited for crowd shots and other high angles.
Underslung Mode is the most common mode, it places the camera at chest level and is the most comfortable position to the hold the gimbal for extended periods of time.
Briefcase Mode really highlights the versatility of the gimbal and enables you to shoot low to the ground and close to your body, it works well on tight sets and for low perspective shots.
In addition to the other modes the Ronin M also features an incredibly usefulSilent Mode that reduces the noise of the motors to ensure quiet operation. Ensuring that clean audio can be captured easily on set by your sound guy even on small sets.
Brushless Motors, Advanced IMU and a Custom 32 Bit Processor
The gimbal uses three brushless high torque motors which operate along 3 axes to compensate for movement. The motors interact with the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to send information to the Ronin M’s custom 32-bit processor to calculate movements and ensure that the camera remains perfectly steady.
Remote Controller for Dual Operator Function
Another useful feature of the gimbal is the option to be controlled by two operators at the same time using the included 2.4Ghz radio remote controller. While one operator holds the unit and follows the action the second operator is able to control the movement of the camera completely independently of the rig. This allows you to work together to capture precise cinematic shots with refined camera movement.
Smart Battery with 3-hour Battery Life
The DJI Ronin-M 3-Axis Gimbal Stabiliser has included 4S lithium-polymer batteries that provide over 3 hours of operation time each, depending on the attached camera and usage. The battery has in-built intelligent features to optimise its performance like an overcharge protection to ensure the battery isn’t damaged by overcharging. The battery also has sleep protection mode activated after 20 minutes of inactivity to save power as well as a whole host of other smart functions.
The Ronin-M is cutting edge cinematic technology in a portable package that is guaranteed to increase the production value of any video project.
