    DJI Ronin-S Gimbal Sun, 07 Jan 2018 10:34:35 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 18673@/talks/discussions image

    January 7, 2018 – DJI, the world’s leader in creative camera technology, introduced two new handheld camera stabilizers at CES 2018 – Osmo Mobile 2 and Ronin-S. Built for smartphones, DSLRs, and mirrorless camera systems, they give consumers, professional videographers and photographers new tools to capture smooth, steady videos and stunning photos wherever they go.

    Ronin-S: DJI’s first single-handed stabilizer for DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras. Built for efficient setup and ease of use with a compact form and dedicated buttons to control camera settings and precise positioning, plus intelligent features for advanced shooting modes all designed to help bring a steady shot to any set.

    “With the introduction of these two stabilizers, DJI now offers gimbal technology to help unlock the creative storyteller in everyone no matter what camera they’re using,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Manager at DJI. “Osmo Mobile 2 offers the best in smartphone stabilization at an affordable price, and Ronin-S brings the quality of DJI’s professional gimbal technology to a new form factor that is perfect for run-and-gun filming using your favorite DSLR or mirrorless camera system.”

    Ronin-S – Bring a Steady Shot to Any Set

    Ronin-S is DJI’s first single-handed stabilizer for DSLR and mirrorless camera systems. Available in two frame sizes for either camera type, DJI’s powerful three-axis gimbal technology delivers smooth, shake-free video and crisp photos, adding a cinematic and professional look to your work.

    Powerful high-torque motors support the most popular camera and lens combinations including the Canon 5D, Panasonic GH and Sony Alpha systems. Its stabilization system compensates for zoom lenses with higher magnification ratios and an external zooming barrel, while its advanced stabilization algorithms work with both in-camera and in-lens optical stabilization technology.

    Capturing stabilized video has never been easier because Ronin-S was designed for easy setup and use. A new Push mode lets you adjust the pan and tilt axis by hand while the Ronin-S is powered on and axis locks speed up the setup process so you can spend more time filming and less time prepping your gear. Ronin-S has a comfortable, ergonomic curved design that helps capture smooth cinematic movements from upright to underslung positions without obstructing the camera’s display. Ronin-S also features DJI’s intelligent battery technology that can be hot-swapped during operation for extended shoots.*

    Dedicated control buttons for the camera and gimbal let you toggle between SmoothTrack settings, record and stop the camera, and the high-precision joystick changes the camera position to help frame your shot perfectly. A new Sport mode allows for fast movements with tight and quick subject following speed.

    Harness intelligent shooting modes on Ronin-S through the DJI Ronin mobile app to create complex camera moves automatically like Panorama, Hyperlapse, Track and CamAnchor that lets you designate specific camera positions in a scene and rotate between them on demand. Directly customize SmoothTrack settings with dedicated controls for responsiveness of each axis. Camera settings can be directly adjusted as well.**

    Ronin-S is compatible with a variety of DJI Pro Accessories to capture any scene and expand your creative freedom on set or location. Supported accessories include a Focus Control Center consisting of a focusing dial and a screen allowing advanced gimbal and focus control without a mobile device, a vehicle mount solution, DJI Master Force, DJI Master Wheels, an external focus motor, and a cheese plate adapter so you can use your favorite third-party accessories. A dual-handle support will also be available for when an added level of comfort and stability is required.

    Price and Availability

    Ronin-S will be available in the second quarter of 2018 from, DJI Flagship Stores, DJI Authorized Retail Stores, and DJI Resellers worldwide***. Pricing will be announced prior to availability. Additional information on Ronin-S can be found at

    Last year, Filmpower released a stabilizer called Nebula 5100 Slant that brought out the new structure concept of the 3-axis single handheld gimbal. This model is known for it’s unblocking screen design and impressive payload that can support many large cameras weighing up to 3.2kg such as the Canon C100, Canon 1dx, Nikon D810 and even Sony FS5. Now they are going to release a new special version of this hot model: Nebula 5100 a7.

    Just as its name implies, the Nebula 5100 a7 is specially designed for the Sony a7 Series. By using the a7 cage instead of the tactical cage, this version of the Nebula 5100 Slant is only compatible with the Sony a7r2, a7r3, a7s2, a7m3 and more Sony a7 Series. And the meaning of this change is not only making the single handheld gimbal more and more compact but also making the stability more reliable. Another thing is usually there are 4 or 5 points we need to balance before we shooting, the gravity center, the Pitch point, the Roll point and the Yaw point. By the help of the a7 cage, now users don’t have to adjust the gravity center. Speaking about the new a7 cage, it’s integrated from top grade, high tensile aluminium. There are 41 of 1/4" screw holes and 4 of 3/8" threads for adding other accessories onto your camera.

    Beside the no screen blocking design, Nebula 5100 a7 keeps most of the great features from the Nebula 5100 Slant, such as the all-metal body design, the energy saving encoder, the 8-10 hours’ long battery life, the 360° rotation, manual focus adjustment and the useful functions: one key midpoint returning, time-lapse, roll follow mode... Also, the Nebula 5100 a7 supports the exclusive accessory, expansion packs, making it becomes a dual-handle gimbal .

    The Nebula 5100 a7 is in pre-sale now with a price of $699, still I have no doubt that this refinement of the Nebula Series is just a start, we’ll keep you updated detail as well as it comes in.

    Is anybody using this and could give some further insights about usability, strenghts, weaknesses and whatever comes to mind?

    And: Why are there no chinese knockoffs of this? Doesn´t look overly complicated, and could be produced and sold much cheaper..
