DJI teases arrival of new lightweight Ronin gimbal
After the launch of DJI’s Ronin-S gimbal at CES 2018, it became a must-have accessory for the serious videographer. But, if you’ve ever used one you’ll know that it’s heavy, making it uncomfortable to use through a full day’s worth of filming. However, DJI seems to have heard users’ concerns and has ‘accepted the challenge’ of making a professional gimbal that’s lightweight and “smarter” to use. A sneak-peek video posted to DJI’s official Twitter account says we’ll be seeing the new gimbal sooner than we thought, with the launch taking place at the Challenge Accepted event on July 17. We don’t know much about the upcoming gimbal, except that FCC filings from July 15 carry the name Ronin-SC/Ronin-S Command. All we can tell is that the upcoming gimbal will be of a similar design to the original Ronin-S, but in a more lightweight and compact setup that makes for better ergonomics.
