DJI Releases the Ronin-M: Lightweight and Lower-Priced
At half the weight of the original stabilizer, the Ronin-M is a welcomed upgrade to the Ronin.
Aside from amazing new camera announcements, NAB 2015 is also a great place to find new accessories to go along with those new cameras. One of the most exciting new accessories to be released this year is the DJI Ronin-M, a sequel to their wildly successful Ronin gimbal stabilizer.
The DJI Ronin-M
At less than half the weight of the Ronin, the Ronin-M is a fantastic motorized gimbal stabilizer designed to work with any camera less than 8lbs. The stabilizer offers about 6 hours of battery life which could be an issue if you’re on set for a long time.
The Ronin-M has been designed to be more compact than the original Ronin, making it a better choice for lightweight cameras or tight shooting situations.
The good people at News Shooter have created this awesome demo video from NAB 2015.

- Quick release system for the top handle allows users to mount the DJI Ronin-M easily to jibs, cranes, tripods, and many more.
- Solid, one-piece, magnesium camera-support frame provides extreme structural rigidity.
