- DJI Ronin
The DJI Ronin is especially made for filmmaking. It boasts high quality standards that every film director would ever want. The Ronin is able to hold cameras up to 16 lbs. Its tool-less balance adjustment system makes it quick to setup. Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders in each axis deliver the highest levels of accuracy up to ±0.02° precision of control. A 2nd operator controller is made possible by the transmitter for remote pan/tilt control. The iOS DJI Assistant software lets you make an easy setup of all system configurations especially with the Bluetooth wireless interface for setup. The Ronin includes a hard case that holds the gimbal. There are also one 500mAH full size USB connector and two regulated 12V P-taps provided for power connection.
Product Features in Detail
SUPPORTS A MULTITUDE OF CAMERAS AND LENSES
The Ronin is not customized for any specific camera. It can be easily adjusted to carry everything from small & light Micro-Four-Thirds cameras to heavier systems like the Red Epic.
BASED ON ZENMUSE TECHNOLOGY
The DJI Zenmuse gimbals were the first commercially available systems in the world to utilize 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 customized direct drive brushless motors.
SMOOTHTRACK CONTROLSmoothTrack gives a single gimbal operator the ability to transform their tilt and pan movements on the gimbal into smooth and stabilized camera angle changes. This makes framing wide-angle or close scenes significantly easier for a single operator.
3 OPERATION MODES
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.
2ND OPERATOR CONTROLLER
An included 2nd operator transmitter allows a 2nd operator to pan, tilt, and roll independent of the Ronin’s movement. SmoothTrack speeds and operation modes can be assigned with 2 custom toggle switches on the transmitter.
EXTREMELY DURABLE, HIGH BUILD QUALITY
Made from precision machined aircraft-grade aluminum, 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.
HIGH TORQUE, PRECISION CONTROLLED MOTORS
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.
HIGH PERFORMANCE PROCESSING POWER
A customized, advanced 32-bit floating point DSP processor offers more efficiency than an ARM processor, for faster processing of signals from the onboard encoders.
BUILT-IN RECEIVER & REMOTE CONTROL
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.
QUICK SWAP SMART BATTERY
The Ronin’s customized smart 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 runtime is over 4 hours, depending on the attached camera rig and gimbal usage.
POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX
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.
DUAL 15MM RODS FOR FOLLOW-FOCUS ACCESSORIES
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 customization of different lengths, dependent on camera and lens setup.
PROTECTIVE CARRYING CASE
An extremely strong, durable and water tight carrying case with rolling wheels provides easy transportation. Dense custom cut EVA foam protects the Ronin and accessories.
MOBILE BLUETOOTH ASSISTANT SOFTWARE
The feature-rich iOS DJI Assistant software allows easy setup of all system configurations. The PC Assistant also provides control of all the Ronin’s functionalities in addition to firmware upgrades for future features.
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 off 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 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.
