DJI reveals Ronin-S gimbal stabilisers ahead of CES 2018
THE ALL NEW RONIN-S
A completely new 3-axis stabiliser for both mirrorless and D-SLR cameras is now available, the Ronin-S is DJI’s comes in two sizes for either camera system. This product launch puts DJI’s Ronin-S in direct competition with the popular Zhiyun Crane 3-axis stabilisers.
Designed for DSLR and mirrorless cameras, the Ronin-S combines advanced stabilisation, precision control, and manual focus control capabilities in a compact, single-handed form factor. With the Ronin-S, creators can shoot with the freedom of stabilised shots on the move.
A crucial difference in design is that the Ronin-S’s innovative framework elevates camera payload above the roll axis, making the camera’s built-in display obstruction free and always in your line of sight. This ergonomic design also frees the Ronin-S from unwanted shake as you shift from underslung to an upright position in one smooth take.
Special accessories for the Ronin-S will be available, including a Focus Control Centre, allowing you to accurately adjust your focus, a vehicle mount solution, DJI Master Force, DJI Master Wheels, an external focus motor, and a cheese plate adapter so you can use your favourite third-party accessories.

ABOUT THE RONIN-S
Powerful high-torque motors support the most popular camera and lens combinations including the Canon 5D, Panasonic GH and Sony Alpha systems.

Ronin-S also features DJI’s intelligent battery technology that can be hot-swapped during operation for extended shoots.*
