DJI has launched a new gimbal for mirrorless cameras. The Ronin SC is much easier to carry since it’s 41 percent lighter than its predecessor, the Ronin S. It’s a single-handed 3 axis gimbal that weighs only 2.4 pounds so it will be much easier to carry it around with your for shoots and stuff.
The weight loss compared to the Ronin S has been possible because the company used a combination of magnesium, aluminum, steel, and composite plastic to create a more lightweight gimbal which is easier to disassemble and fit inside a bag.
It simply takes the powerful technology from its predecessor and packs it inside a lighter and smaller form factor. “Now users can pair their mirrorless system with a stabilizer that is easier to transport, easier to set up, easier to use yet still equipped with high-performance features and technology,” says DJI Senior Product Manager Paul Pan.
There are some limitations, though. While the Ronin S could carry an 8 pound payload with a 12 hour battery life, the Ronin SC can carry up to 4.4 pounds with an 11 hour battery life. There are some new design features, though, which include improved balancing capability and position lock system. Two new modes are also offered via the app which aren’t available for the predecessor.
DJI is now selling the Ronin SC through its website and retailers. The price starts at $439.
