The DJI Ronin-SC Gimbal Stabilizer, a three-axis single-handle stabilised gimbal for small mirrorless cameras weighing less than 4.4 lb, offers numerous enhancements over the Ronin-S. Even though the Ronin-SC is smaller, it still has a tonne of features, improvements to the design, and technological advancements. To produce solid 3D/360° motion shots, the gimbal has stabilisation, pan, tilt, and roll control, as well as 360° continuous panning.
The gimbal is incredibly portable and makes it simpler to handle the gimbal with a mounted camera for extended periods of time thanks to its meagre 2.4 lb weight. It has two locking modes for storing and balancing your camera. The sliding quick release camera plate makes it simple to rebalance your camera after moving to a new location. Simply balance your camera in the balancing lock position, unmount it with the plate, put the gimbal in storage mode, and travel. Once you arrive, take the gimbal out and remount your camera. Once the gimbal is unlocked and turned on, your camera will still be balanced.
The Ronin-SC features a record button and a joystick for precise gimbal control, as well as a re-center front trigger button to bring the gimbal back to its default position. There is also an M button that you can press and hold to enter Sport Mode, which provides fast tracking response when recording action sequences. Using the Android or iOS app over Bluetooth 5.0, Active Track 3.0 has been updated to help users track a subject with the gimbal without having to use any controls at all. Another handy function is DJI's Force Mobile, which allows you to control your gimbal's motion when it's mounted on a rig or tripod using the gyroscope of your smartphone, allowing you to perform more precise gimbal movements using your own natural motion. Other built-in features include time-lapse and motion-lapse modes.
A 2450mAh rechargeable 18650 LiPo battery that is integrated into the Ronin-handle SC's provides up to 11 hours of runtime on a single charge. It can control a suitable camera using one of the provided multiport USB connections to run, stop, or pull the focus while being charged through a USB Type-C port. Additionally, the handle has mounting threads for 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 accessories, such as the included smartphone holder.
A long grip/tripod, camera riser, lens support, port cover, Allen wrench, quick release plate with 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw, M4 screw, multicamera USB control cable, multicamera USB Type-C control cable, USB Type-C charging cable, USB Type-C to micro-USB adapter, and storage case are also included with the Ronin-SC.
Automated Creative Features: Panorama
Use the Ronin-SC to capture 360° panning and rolling panoramic shots using precise gimbal movements.
Use your phone's gyroscope to motion-control the gimbal movement of the Ronin-SC with ultra-low latency, offering a precise and intuitive control experience.
Time-Lapse and Motion-Lapse
Using the DJI Ronin app for Android and iOS you can control your camera to take photos at specific intervals which, when combined and sequenced in post, can yield creative time-lapse movies. You can also pre-set a path for the gimbal to follow during time-lapse photography inside the app.
With Active Track 3.0, you can program a repeatable gimbal movement and follow your subject without operator input.
General Features: Auto Calibration
When Auto Calibration is enabled, the gimbal will automatically set an appropriate motor stiffness value based on the weight of the mounted payload.
Offset Roll Motor
By offsetting the roll motor, the Ronin-SC holds the camera above the roll axis, leaving the camera's LCD screen unblocked. This design also minimizes the camera shake that occurs when transitioning from upright to underslung modes and vice versa.
The Ronin-SC was built to be modular. Direct-connected and wireless accessories are supported.
The Ronin-SC can mount onto an RC buggy for low-angle shots or even act as a stabilized remote head when mounted to a jib.
Both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 accessory mounts are allocated on the Ronin-SC, providing full support for add-ons such as a microphone, LED light, or a wireless video transmitter.
