Compact, lightweight, and remarkably easy to use, the Ronin-M features all of the functions of the original Ronin and gives you the power of a professional setup in the unmatched flexibility of a one-man crew.
3 Operation Modes
Capture footage in any situation with the 3 different operation modes, all of which can be entered without changing settings or needing a 2nd operator remote.
- Underslung Mode - Film comfortably by holding the Ronin-M directly in front of you at chest level. This is the most common shooting mode.
- Upright Mode - Perfect for shooting above a crowd of people or even out of a car sunroof. Simply flip and lift the Ronin-M above your head.
- Briefcase Mode - Turn the gimbal vertically and hold it by your side close to your legs, just like a briefcase. This mode is great for narrow spaces or moving through doorways.
Quick and Easy Setup
The easy and efficient assembly will allow you to get recording in under 5 minutes. The upgraded ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology is more precise than before and completes the tuning and balancing processes with no tools necessary. The top handle bars easily twist off, allowing you to minimize its size, achieve different shooting configurations, and pack or unpack it in seconds.
Second Operator Controller
Achieve perfect framing and complete more complex camera movements by having a second operator control the camera’s motions independenty of the person holding it.
Compact, Lightweight and Durable
The Ronin-M features a stong and rigid magnesium frame which brings increased stiffness and reduces the overall weight to just 5 pounds (2.3kg), about half the weight of the original Ronin. The slimmed down Ronin-M is small enough to fit into your backpack and take anywhere, yet strong enough to support camera setups weighing up to 8 pounds (3.6kg).
Even with only one operator, SmoothTrack technology ensures the Ronin-M translates your movements into smooth camera angle changes. Your camera intuitively faces the direction you want, all while completely stabilized, no matter how you move. SmoothTrack settings from speed to deadband to acceleration are fully customizable, and ‘Single Axis Follow Mode’ enables you to lock two axes while SmoothTrack guides your camera along only one axis of motion.
Change settings on the go with the simple DJI Assistant app that links to your Ronin-M over Bluetooth. Auto Tune, adjust your favorite settings, monitor the status of your Ronin-M, and customize SmoothTrack in seconds.
When shooting indoors or in tight spaces, a new Silent Mode reduces the sound of each motor to almost inaudible levels. The Ronin-M’s stabilization algorithms are instantly changed to focus on strength for minute changes and stabilization, ensuring the sound of the motors is not recorded by sensitive microphones or other recording equipment.
Quick Swap Smart Battery
The Ronin’s customized smart battery is easy to install and simple to charge with the provided charger. Remaining power can be checked directly on the battery. Overcharge and over depletion protection is built-in, as is individual battery cell charge balancing. Expected runtime is around 3 hours with a 1580mah battery, depending on the attached camera rig and gimbal usage. The original Ronin battery can be used with the Ronin-M, but please be aware that the Ronin-M battery cannot be used in the original Ronin.
Compatible Thumb Controller
Gain more control over your camera’s motions with a built-in receiver that is fully compatible with the optional DJI Ronin Thumb Controller. Point the camera in any direction and save preset settings for fast, easy operation.
