Use the Ronin-M from DJI to shoot handheld without the shake. This 3-axis motorised gimbal lets you pan and tilt, correcting very fine movements as you move. It weighs only 2.3 kg, yet supports camera setups of up to 3.6 kg. Built-in Bluetooth allows easy setup. Assistant Software lets you configure for iOS or Windows.

Developed for the filmmaking professional, the DJI Ronin-M 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabiliser marks a generational leap in camera stabilisation technology. With custom sensors, powerful motors and advanced algorithms, this is one of the best drone camera gimbals to eliminate shake.
Once your camera is configured, the Ronin can be ready to shoot in as little as 5 minutes, saving time and increasing efficiency on set. The built-in ATS (Auto-Tune Stability) technology intelligently tunes Ronin to your camera rig at the touch of a button.
Transform tilt and pan movements on the Ronin into smooth and stabilised camera angle changes.
3 different modes of operation allow the Ronin to be used in different scenarios, all of which can be entered without changing settings on the Ronin Assistant app or a 2nd operator remote. SmoothTrack functionality remains in all three modes.
Flip the gimbal over to bring the camera closer to eye level for a higher perspective without straining to lift it. Use this mode when sticking the Ronin out of a car’s sunroof or when trying to shoot over a crowd of people.
2. Underslung Mode
The default gimbal operation is the Underslung mode. The camera can be comfortably held low to the ground, at chest level or anywhere in between. This mode is also used when the Ronin is suspended from a camera jib or crane.
3. Briefcase Mode
When a slimmer gimbal profile is needed, i.e. when moving through doorways or narrow paths, Briefcase mode is ideal. It allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase.
Made from precision machined aircraft-grade aluminium, the Ronin offers the durability to withstand rugged use on set and meets the high demand for reliability. No loose cables or zip ties give it a clean, professional appearance.
The feature-rich iOS and Android DJI Assistant software allow easy setup of all system configurations. The PC and Mac Assistant also provides control of all the Ronin’s functionalities in addition to firmware upgrades for future feature
With a little practice, the Ronin takes less than 5 minutes to set up and balance whenever the camera configuration is changed. This saves time, making the Ronin more efficient in professional environments where every second count. The built-in ATS (Auto-Tune Stability) technology intelligently tunes the Ronin to your camera rig at the touch of a button.
The Ronin is not customised for any specific camera. It can be easily adjusted to carry everything from small & light M4/3 cameras to heavier systems like the Red Epic.
The DJI Zenmuse gimbals were the first commercially available systems in the world to utilise brushless motor technology for professional filming and aerial photography. The Zenmuse gimbal line has long been a benchmark that others have been measured against. The Ronin is based off the same technology and also offers multiple control modes, a built-in IMU, and customised direct drive brushless motors.
An included 2nd operator transmitter allows a 2nd operator to pan, tilt, and roll independently of the Ronin’s movement. SmoothTrack speeds and operation modes can be assigned with 2 custom toggle switches on the transmitter.
A customised, advanced 32-bit floating point DSP processor offers more efficiency than an ARM processor, for faster processing of signals from the onboard encoders.
Motors have been developed with the high-performance Ronin in mind. Using FOC control, you can count on high precision, low vibration, and increased torque. Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders in each axis provide the highest levels of accuracy. This combination of custom motor modules and features is found in no other system.
A built-in DJI receiver allows the Ronin to be remotely controlled by a 2nd operator. The gimbal operator can focus on gimbal movement while the 2nd operator pays attention to camera movement. 2nd operator mode is also useful for gimbal control when working with flying platforms for aerial cinematography. A D-Bus port is also included if a non-DJI receiver is required.
The top bar features a quick release system allowing easy attachment and detachment for rapid setup and break down. The same attachment can be used for vehicle or multi-rotor mounting.
The Ronin’s customised intelligent battery is easy to install and simple to charge with the provided charger. Remaining power can be checked directly on the battery. Overcharge and over depletion protection is built-in, as is individual battery cell charge balancing. Expected run time is approximately 6 hours, depending on the camera rig and gimbal usage.
Two regulated 12V P-taps, one 500mAH full-size USB connector, and also a connection point for the DJI Lightbridge Long Range HD Video Downlink are provided. This offers convenient power connection for various accessories including follow focus systems, HD video downlinks and others, all while keeping the wiring to a minimum.
Follow focus systems and matte boxes can be easily mounted on the Ronin using industry standard dual 15mm segmented rods. The segmented rods allow for customisation of different lengths, dependent on camera and lens setup.
An extremely strong, durable and watertight carrying case with rolling wheels provides easy transportation. Dense custom cut EPP foam protects the Ronin and accessories.
After balancing a camera rig, simply tap the Auto-Tune Stability button to tune the Ronin for use. It will intelligently adjust parameters based on your camera rig’s weight and independently adjust each individual axis until an optimal setting is found. Auto-Tune Stability also fine-tunes other aspects of the control system, making balancing fast and easy.
Tune each individual speed to your preferences. SmoothTrack provides movement translation based on the Ronin operator’s movement. As the Ronin operator pans or tilts the gimbal, the camera orientation will pan and tilt in the direction the gimbal is moved and then ramp down in speed. This pan and tilt movement speed can be independently adjusted using the software. Translated movement acceleration can also be fine-tuned as well. If the Ronin operator needs to pan or tilt rapidly between two positions and the standard speed isn’t sufficient, an accelerated speed can be adjusted without affecting slower movements.
Full configuration of the transmitter can be accomplished through the DJI Assistant. Features such as control speed, remapping of what the control joysticks do, and also end-point adjustments can be configured through Assistant.
The Ronin’s vital stats can also be viewed on the Assistant app. Key items such as motor power, pan-tilt-roll axis’s degrees of movement, electronics’ temperature monitoring, as well as remaining battery life.
All units shipped will have the latest firmware, but due to our continuous drive to innovate, firmware updates will be made available online for improved performance and future features.
Use the Ronin with the DJI Focus for wireless control of focus or aperture from anywhere on a set.
