DJI Revises Their Ultralight Ronin Gimbal For Mirrorless Cameras

Jul 17, 2019

Category: Tech

When taking your first steps into the realm of videography, finding a preferred setup is an arduous road of trial and error. Picking the quintessential camera, gear, and subject is one thing — but as your skill in the medium begins to plateau, the acquisition of knowledge regarding stabilization, framing, and composition begins to take precedence. Now, DJI is making the tricks of the trade more accessible than ever with the newly-released Ronin-SC Gimbal.

Since the company’s conception in 2006, DJI has been an avid champion of filmmaking, manufacturing a handful of video-oriented drones, stabilizers, and accessories. The Ronin-S, which preceded the new SC, burst onto the scene in 2018, offering enthusiastic creators a slew of options to capture inventive footage. The SC, however, is much smaller — nearly half of the weight of the original — and features the same innovative characteristics as its larger brother; albeit, in a mirrorless-only platform. It features a handful of interesting features like Activetrack, which effortlessly follows your subject as you traverse alongside, Motionlapse, which can help you to create epic, panoramic time lapses, and a stable focus motor/command unit for seamless movement, panning, and capture. But, what stands out the most about the SC is the implementation of a new feature called Force Mobile — allowing users to control the gimbal’s movement, rotation, focus, and shake, from over 82 feet away. The DJI Ronin-SC is available now for $440.
