New DJI Ronin-SC brings smooth, drone-like video to mirrorless cameras

New DJI Ronin-SC brings smooth, drone-like video to mirrorless cameras

As mirrorless cameras rise in popularity, DJI has designed a new, Ronin-SC gimbal to bring that same smooth, drone-like effect to videos shot on mirrorless cameras, too. The DJI Ronin-SC DJI today launched the $439 Ronin-SC, which is a lightweight, 3-axis stabilizer for mirrorless cameras. It’s smaller, lighter, and cheaper than its predecessor, the Ronin-S. The new Ronin-SC is 41% lighter in fact, coming in at just 2.4 lbs. That means no more tired arms for filmmakers who might have otherwise had to hold the Ronin for long periods of time. The Ronin-SC is designed to seamlessly integrate with most popular mirrorless cameras on the market, including the Sony A7 line; Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7; Panasonic G9 and Panasonic GH line; Fujifilm XH1, XT2 and XT3, Canon EOS R and M50; and more. See the complete list of Ronin-SC compatible mirrorless cameras here. It’s also compatible with some DJI accessories including a new, lighter external focus motor, Command Unit, DJI Force Pro, DJI Master Wheels, and some third-party accessories. The Ronin-SC’s predecessor, the Ronin-S, is a designed for large and heavy cameras such as DSLRs, though it can also accommodate some larger mirrorless cameras. DSRLs use a reflex mirror to reflects light up to the optical viewfinder. On the other hand, mirrorless camera don’t use an optical viewfinder, instead exposing the imaging sensor is exposed to light at all times. This new Ronin-SC gimbal isn’t just an exact copy of the Ronin-S but simply rejiggered for mirrorless cameras. Even
