The DJI Ronin has been developed for the filmmaking professional. High build quality standards ensure that it keeps up with the demands of rigorous handheld use in trying environments. Simply hold it in your hands to create smooth and stable footage. Custom built ultra-fast processors, extremely accurate sensors, and advanced algorithms, together with fanatical attention to detail has created a system that offers remarkably precise manipulation of control angles - within the range of ±0.02°. This puts world-class, industry leading technology into your hands and creates unparalleled picture and video stabilization.

3-Axis Stabilized Handheld Gimbal System

Developed for the filmmaking professional, the DJI Ronin marks a generational leap in camera stabilization technology. Its custom sensors, powerful motors and advanced algorithms put world-class precision in your hands.

Save Time On Set

Once your camera is configured, the Ronin can be ready to shoot in as little as 5 minutes, saving time and increasing efficiency on set. The built-in ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology intelligently tunes Ronin to your camera rig at the touch of a button.

SmoothTrack Control

Transform tilt and pan movements on the Ronin into smooth and stabilized camera angle changes.

3 Operation Modes

3 different modes of operation allow the Ronin to be used in different scenarios, all of which can be entered without changing settings on the Ronin Assistant app or a 2nd operator remote. SmoothTrack functionality remains in all three modes.

  1. Upright Mode

Flip the gimbal over to bring the camera closer to eye level for a higher perspective without straining to lift it. Use this mode when sticking the Ronin out of a car’s sunroof or when trying to shoot over a crowd of people.

  1. Underslung Mode

The default gimbal operation is the Underslung mode. The camera can be comfortably held low to the ground, at chest level or anywhere in between. This mode is also used when the Ronin is suspended from a camera jib or crane.

  1. Briefcase Mode

When a slimmer gimbal profile is needed, i.e. when moving through doorways or narrow paths, Briefcase mode is ideal. It allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase.

Extremely Durable, High Build Quality

Made from precision machined aircraft-grade aluminum, the Ronin offers the durability to withstand rugged use on set and meets the high demand for reliability. No loose cables or zip ties give it a clean, professional appearance.

Mobile Bluetooth Assistant Software

The feature-rich iOS and Android DJI Assistant software allows easy setup of all system configurations. The PC and Mac Assistant also provides control of all the Ronin’s functionalities in addition to firmware upgrades for future features.

Supports a Multitude of Cameras and Lenses

The Ronin is not customized for any specific camera. It can be easily adjusted to carry everything from small & light M4/3 cameras to heavier systems like the Red Epic.

Based on Zenmuse Technology

The DJI Zenmuse gimbals were the first commercially available systems in the world to utilize brushless motor technology for professional filming and aerial photography. The Zenmuse gimbal line has long been a benchmark that others have been measured against. The Ronin is based off the same technology and also offers multiple control modes, a built-in IMU, and customized direct drive brushless motors.

2nd Operator Controller

An included 2nd operator transmitter allows a 2nd operator to pan, tilt, and roll independent of the Ronin’s movement. SmoothTrack speeds and operation modes can be assigned with 2 custom toggle switches on the transmitter.

High Performance Processing Power

A customized, advanced 32-bit floating point DSP processor offers more efficiency than an ARM processor, for faster processing of signals from the onboard encoders.

High Torque, Precision Controlled Motors

Motors have been developed with the high performance Ronin in mind. Using FOC control, you can count on high precision, low vibration, and increased torque. Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders in each axis provide the highest levels of accuracy. This combination of custom motor modules and features is found in no other system.

Built-in Receiver & Remote Control

A built-in DJI receiver allows the Ronin to be remotely controlled by a 2nd operator. The gimbal operator can focus on gimbal movement while the 2nd operator pays attention to camera movement. 2nd operator mode is also useful for gimbal control when working with flying platforms for aerial cinematography. A D-Bus port is also included if a non-DJI receiver is required.

Quick Release Top Handle Bar

The top bar features a quick release system allowing easy attachment and detachment for rapid setup and break down. The same attachment can be used for vehicle or multi-rotor mounting.

Quick Swap Smart Battery

Over 6 Hours of Runtime Easily mount accessories including a video monitor, 3rd party video transmitters and more on the top bar accessory mounts.

Power Distribution Box

Two regulated 12V P-taps, one 500mAH full size USB connector, and also a connection point for the DJI Lightbridge Long Range HD Video Downlink are provided. This offers convenient power connection for various accessories including follow focus systems, HD video downlinks and others, all while keeping the wiring to a minimum.

Dual 15mm Rods for Follow-focus Accessories

Follow focus systems and matte boxes can be easily mounted on the Ronin using industry standard dual 15mm segmented rods. The segmented rods allow for customization of different lengths, dependent on camera and lens setup.

Protective Carrying Case

An extremely strong, durable and water tight carrying case with rolling wheels provides easy transportation. Dense custom cut EPP foam protects the Ronin and accessories.

Precise Focus Control

Use the Ronin with the DJI Focus for wireless control of focus or aperture from anywhere on a set.
