GENERAL
We have tested a payload capacity 3.6 kg (8 lbs.) while maintaining optimal performance
-20°C (4°F) to 45°C (113°F).
The Ronin-S Camera Mounting Plate is compatible with Manfrotto 501PL type. You can simply dismount the camera setup from Ronin-S, then mount it onto a compatible tripod or fluid head system.
To update the firmware, power on the Ronin-S and connect it to a PC or Mac computer, then use DJI Pro Assistant for Ronin.
Yes. And you can collapse it into an extended grip for better handheld operation.
Yes.
The Ronin-S does not support control of these cameras.
COMPATIBILITY AND CONNECTIVITY
Please refer to Ronin-S Specifications and the camera compatibility list here: Camera Compatibility List
According to our tests, the Ronin-S can capture stabilized footage with a 5D Mk IV + EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM lens in handheld scenarios.
8-pin connectors on both sides of the control panel can provide power and can be used to connect with the Ronin-S Focus Wheel. The dual 4-pin CAN Bus connector beneath the camera carriage can provide up to 24W of power for a range of DJI accessories.
The RSS interface can be connected to compatible cameras via dedicated cables to access camera features including start/stop video recording and camera parameter adjustments.
INTELLIGENT BATTERY
The Ronin-S uses an RB1-2400 mAh- 14.4 V Intelligent Battery.
A fully charged battery can power the Ronin-S continuously for 12 hours if the gimbal is properly balanced.
It takes approximately two hours and 15 minutes to charge the battery fully when using the 24W USB Power Adapter.
Connect the grip to the Ronin-S gimbal and charge the built-in battery via the USB-C interface. An optional battery adapter will also be available to enable battery charging/discharging without attaching to the gimbal directly.
IN-APP PARAMETER ADJUSTMENT
The Ronin-S’s Auto Tune can automatically calibrate motor stiffness based on mounted payload and tuning aggressiveness. Auto Tune can be accessed via the “Configuration – Motor Parameters” page. Before performing Auto Tune, mechanical balance adjustment is necessary. Three preset Auto Tune aggressiveness levels can help you modify the stiffness output value. The Low preset is optimized Auto Tune for scenarios where only slow movement is involved. When the Ronin-S is mounted to a vehicle or used for a fast-moving scene, the High preset can ensure optimal gimbal performance. The Mid preset is designed to provide a satisfactory outcome for most cases and is the default setting.
SmoothTrack enables the Ronin-S to intelligently react to and follow the operator’s movement without input from a second operator. You can selectively enable SmoothTrack on the Pan, Tilt, and Roll axes on the Ronin-S. For further instruction on using SmoothTrack, please refer to the manual.
Motor stiffness values determine the strength of the Ronin-S’s motors to maintain the camera's position, which is critical for maintaining stability. Heavier payloads mounted to the gimbal require higher stiffness value to ensure stable performance. Inadequate stiffness values will result in an inability to offer optimal stabilization. If you’re unsure about which values to set, simply use Auto Tune to let the Ronin-S calculate the optimal motor stiffness.
System calibration is designed to counteract gimbal drifting caused by accumulated sensor errors. Before initializing the calibration process, the Ronin-S must be placed on a level surface without being disturbed.
Use System Calibration when you notice that the gimbal is drifting or when the horizon is tilted.
INTELLIGENT CONTROL
The Ronin app allows you to set up and fine-tune gimbal performance with settings for features like SmoothTrack, motor parameters, and various intelligent functions.
Yes, you can. The Ronin-S is compatible with the DJI Master Wheels and Force Pro when connected when using the DJI Pro Wireless Receiver. The Ronin-S can also be connected with D-Bus compatible systems such as the Futaba series via the port on the Focus Wheel.
The Ronin-S doesn’t come with a built-in GPS module. However, an optional GPS module will be available for car mount scenarios to eliminate gimbal attitude errors that may occur under high G-forces.
Timelapse, Motionlapse, Panorama, and Track.
When controlled via the Ronin mobile app, the range is around 10 m. When connected to third-party control systems, the range might vary. Please consult with your system’s documentation for range details. When connected to the DJI Pro Wireless Receiver, the control range can be extended up to 3 km (2 mi) when there is no obstruction or interference present.
You can set up to five waypoints for Motionlapse.
Yes, the joystick is multidirectional, allowing you to move up, down, left, right, and in all diagonal directions.
The Front Trigger allows you to instantly turn off SmoothTrack, re-center the gimbal, and turn it around 180°. For example, holding down the Front Trigger allows you to transition between Upright and Underslung Mode in one seamless movement.
Yes, the Ronin-S supports Push Mode in the Pan, Tilt, and Roll axes, allowing you to reposition the gimbal by using your hands.
