The Ronin M is a new and exciting piece of handheld, camera stabilisation technology which has been developed with film making professionals in mind.
The brushless motor gimbal system allows the Ronin-M to be used with a wide range of cameras of different sizes and weights up to a maximum of 3.6kg (8 lbs). It’s the smaller, lighter brother of the highly successful DJI Ronin, which was designed for larger camera setups. It weighs just 2.3kg (5 lbs) which is around half the weight of the Ronin.
The Ronin M is a very adaptable piece of kit. It can be used in three different positions: underslung mode, upright mode and briefcase mode, making it highly adaptable for changing viewpoints and also allowing access in tight locations.
The Ronin-M’s brushless gimbal stabilisation system is not simply three brushless motors moving on three axes. The motors work with positional feedback and the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) to communicate with DJI’s custom 32-bit processor. It processes movement calculations in milliseconds. This reduces angular vibration to less than ±0.02˚ of translated movement, meaning that the camera will remain perfectly steady.
Save time and start shooting professionally stabilised video in under five minutes. Mount your camera to the Ronin-M, quickly balance it, and then tap a button. The upgraded ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology is more precise than before and completes the tuning and balancing processes with no tools necessary. Easy and efficient.
Capture tight shots, even when you have almost no space to work, and easily transport your Ronin-M. The top handle bars quickly and easily twist off, allowing you to minimize its size, achieve different shooting configurations, and pack or unpack it in seconds.
Your Ronin M stands up to rugged use in any filming environment. Featuring a superbly strong and rigid magnesium frame, the new Ronin brings increased stiffness and reduced weight. Notoriously difficult to manufacture and mould, magnesium brings you a new, more exact shooting experience while maintaining easy manoeuvrability and increasing options on set.
Increased rigidity is provided by a single, complete piece of finely-tooled magnesium that forms the U-shaped arm holding the camera plate. Only made possible by DJI’s large manufacturing reach and expertise, this unified design eliminates imperfections that are common in systems made of multiple pieces assembled together. This arm gives you not only greater stability but also reliability, as there is no potential for separate components to come apart.
Designed with high performance in mind, the brushless motors are incredibly precise and powerful while maintaining low vibration and increasing torque. Industry-leading accuracy is increased even further with Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders in each axis, and a much larger range of controllable motion on both the tilt (105⁰ Up, 165⁰ Down) and roll (± 110⁰) axes.
When shooting indoors or in tight spaces, a new Silent Mode reduces the sound of each motor to almost inaudible levels. The 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.
Capture anything you can imagine with a second operator controlling the camera’s movements as the first operator moves around set. Achieve perfect framing and complete more complex camera moves by working together and making your camera’s movement completely independent of the person holding it.
Easily mount your Ronin M with a quick-release system that is compatible with a wide range of universal connections. Remove the top bar assembly in seconds and put your Ronin on a jib, crane, tripod, or anything else. A convenient, easy to fold and carry gimbal tuning stand is also included. The support arm assembly is detachable allowing for mounting onto a standard 5/8” stud.
Film all day, until you get every shot. The smart battery gives you a running time of more than six hours. Overcharge and over depletion protection is built in, as is individual cell charge balancing. Remaining power is shown by LEDs and in the Assistant mobile app.
A dedicated power distribution box keeps wiring to a minimum while providing power to your key accessories. Two regulated 12V P-taps, one 500mAH full-size USB connector, and a DJI Lightbridge connector enable you to connect and provide power to everything you need.
Simple to setup, shoot then pack away.
The Ronin-M's battery provides over six hours of shooting time.
Silent mode ensures that motor noise doesn't ruin your shot.
A new and improved magnesium frame ensures that the Ronin M is a tough piece of kit.
Half the weight of the Ronin, it's so easy to carry.
The Ronin-M is available to purchase from Heliguy.
