It’s a big week for the Ronin-S gimbal from DJI. A few days ago a new firmware update was released for the Ronin-S that added new features to the popular gimbal and fixed some smaller bugs. Now, DJI announced that they are releasing nine new accessories for the Ronin-S to help you capture smooth, stabilized video. Find out about all the details below.
New accessories for the Ronin-S gimbal
DJI, the world’s leader in creative camera technology, today introduced nine new accessories for Ronin-S, DJI’s first single-handed stabilizer for DSLR and mirrorless camera systems, helping capture stabilized video easier than ever before. From a brand new external focus motor to pull focus on lenses manually to the Command Unit offering quick access to settings, Ronin-S users now have a host of exciting new tools to help capture their creative vision.
The DJI Ronin-S Focus Motor brings control to manual lenses that do not offer internal adjustment. Utilizing the Ronin-S Focus Wheel, operators have the option to position the new Focus Motor on the focus ring to quickly adjust while filming. Seamless and precise control over the lens is easily achieved thanks to .02 degrees of accuracy. The Focus Motor includes two essential components, a Rod Mount Set which mounts the Focus Motor to Ronin-S gimbal and the Focus Gear Strip that fits around a wide array of lenses. The Ronin-S Focus Motor allows for exact control over a large selection of lenses and expands the creative freedom of professionals.
For operators who need to control Ronin-S gimbal in fast-moving situations, the Command Unit brings quick access to Ronin-S through a compact and bright screen that attaches to the side of Ronin-S. Vital settings such as motor parameters, remote control, operation modes and more can easily be adjusted without the need of a mobile device.
The Ronin-S BG37 Grip powers the Ronin-S gimbal via a 2400mAh built-in battery, offering up to 12 hours of use, designed to meet the needs of camera professionals who are seeking tools for extended shoots.
A new Top Hotshoe Bracket utilizes the hotshoe mount on the camera to securely mount a DLSR to Ronin-S, ideal for scenes when the gimbal is mounted to a vehicle to capture a car chase or fast-moving objects. A cold shoe mount was included in the design which allows users to mount external accessories during operation as well as serving as an additional mounting point for the Ronin-S Focus Rod.
An Extended Lens Support is designed for use with both standard sized cameras as well as larger camera systems. With a relatively wide adjustable range, the Extended Lens Support helps to firmly secure the camera and lens on Ronin-S gimbal and ensure more optimal shooting performance when the included support is not long enough.
The Ronin-S Universal Mount allows users to mount the Ronin-S gimbal to a car, a jib, a cable cam system and more. Power Ronin-S via the two independent DC-IN ports with a Dual TB50 Battery Mount, a high-performance DJI battery system sold separately or any 12-17V power source.
The External GPS Module offers improved stability during fast acceleration and deceleration when shooting with Ronin-S, for smoother videos and the ability to hold a level horizon better. The GPS signal provides more responsive gimbal stability that can react to sudden movements, enhancing the overall user experience.
