DJI Ronin S IN HAND first Look w/samples!

By Steve Huff

Hey guys! I’m still hanging in Montery, CA at Sony Kando  2.0 and having a great time shooting, testing gear and enjoying the gorgeous weather and even the beach. I have been using the a7III more and more and will have my review of it soon. To date, I have given my first look of the a7III but not my review, so be on the lookout for ANY MOMENT NOW!

Today I was able to test out the new DJI Ronin-S which is a gimbal/stabilizer for larger cameras such as the Sony a7III or even a DSLR. It’s made to an amazing standard with build quality I have never experienced in a Gimbal. You can watch the video overview of it to see my thoughts, and then see it in use and finally, my Son Brandon makes his video debut sharing his thoughts on this superb (but heavy) stabilizer.

Tested it with the Sony A7III and 12-24 Lens. Smooth as silk.

  1. Interesting Steve and good to see a range of devices covered – horses for courses isn’t it! I enjoy seeing the more studio-centric or pro-grade gear insights alongside the portable consumer ones, there’s a time and a place for each. This one looks like a tank!

  2. So you both say how heavy it is. What is the weight of the Gimbal by itself? What unit in your experience has similar performance in a lighter package” I have an A6500, what would give me that great performance in a lighter package for a mid size camera? BTW its something to see the boy become a man, been a pleasure seeing your family grow over the years, thanks for sharing.

    • I have no idea what the weight is. We had it for less than an hour, no scale and no info on weight. I do know the 12-24 is a light lens though, so a heavier lens will make it even heavier.
