Now available to hire - the DJI Ronin handheld 3-axis camera gimbal.
This is a motorised gimbal system that can fly cameras up to 7kg in weight.
It also includes a second controller so that another operator can control the pan, tilt & roll while the 1st operator concentrates on movement.
The Ronin can be configured in any of three operation modes for different requirements with no change in functionality. Upright (overslung) Mode gives an eye-level viewpoint, while the normal underslung mode is for any viewpoint from chest height to ground level and in this mode can be supported by a jib or crane. Finally there is Briefcase Mode which is better for negotiating tight spaces but still with full functionality.
Unlike some other gimbal systems, the DJI Ronin does not require tools for adjustment, as it has a built-in balance adjustment system. In fact setup is possible in as little as 5 minutes when changing position or configuration and the ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology intelligently fine-tunes the gimbal to your rig. Smoothtrack Control also allows for smooth changes in camera angle for a single operator.
Note: to connect to the Ronin via the mobile app, you will need to create an account (takes a few mins) and then you will be asked for the Ronin Bluetooth password. The password is Films1 (note the uppercase F as the password is case sensitive)
