The versatile Ronin 2 gimbal from DJI is suitable for use handheld, or mounted in a variety of ways, including to a drone, Steadicam, vehicle mount, and more. An update from the original Ronin, this motorized stabilization system is suitable for a range of camera and lens configurations, boasting a payload capacity of 30 pounds. This means it can be used for everything from DSLRs up to cinema cameras such as the Arri Alexa Mini and Sony FS7.
Like its predecessor, the Ronin 2 features support for Underslung, Upright, and Briefcase operation modes to help you achieve the best angle. However, it has been redesigned to enable easy transition between Upright and Underslung modes without changing the position of the camera. It also offers several other improvements, such as enhancements to the control software and physical design to simplify taking complex shots without sacrificing performance, all while making important functions more readily accessible.
Upgraded high torque motors allow the gimbal to support a wider range of cameras, resist high winds and G-forces caused when mounted to a car, and keep it moving smoothly in flight.
With up to eight times more powerful motors than previous iterations, Ronin 2 can withstand sustained speeds of over 75 mph with camera builds as heavy as 30 pounds. Thanks to encoded motors and enhanced precision, the Ronin maintains the same 0.02° of accuracy of its predecessors.
A detachable grip allows Ronin 2 to stand up on its own and is easily separated when the lower part of the handgrip is not needed. In addition to handheld work, the Ronin 2 supports mounting on cable cams, drones, Steadicams, vehicle mounts, and more.
Making fine adjustments, which is essential for proper camera balancing, is now simplified with integrated adjustment knobs and a re-designed camera mounting base.
A dedicated high-brightness touchscreen for settings and adjustments has been integrated into Ronin 2, streamlining and accelerating gimbal setup. Tactile buttons including motor pause are placed easily within reach.
The extensively refined, redesigned, and expanded Gimbal Assistant app, helps to create content with minimum effort via new features such as CamAnchor, Time-Lapse, and Panorama, providing a more intuitive and easier to use full control system for Ronin 2.
Enhanced intelligence means filmmakers can get shots with Ronin 2 that would once have needed specialist expertise or additional equipment, from total smoothness control to studio-oriented smart features. Intelligent features include Panorama, Time-Lapse, and CamAnchor modes.
Two batteries on Ronin 2, and the ability to run with only one, allows batteries to be charged and swapped without interrupting a shoot.
The Ronin power hub enables essential accessories, such as DJI Focus and wireless video transmission systems, to be powered by the Ronin 2 battery as well as communicate with the gimbal controller.
The built-in GPS provides Ronin 2 with essential information for gimbal acceleration and speed, which is crucial for maintaining the camera's position and the horizon level when moving at high speeds while mounted to a vehicle or drone.
Robust and resilient in extreme weather conditions, Ronin 2's self-heating batteries ensure stable power output for high-performance in temperatures as low as -4°F and high heat environments. Dual batteries capable of operating simultaneously and independently provide complete redundancy, keeping the shoot going.
The Ronin 2 supports a range of cameras from DSLRs to cinema cameras, even with high-grade lenses and other accessories mounted. Compatible camera/lens configurations include:
