The DJI Ronin is an incredible gimbal and an even better price. Let me start off by saying that the ONLY real drawback to the Ronin is it's starting weight (9.2 lbs). If you plan on using a lightweight DSLR or mirrorless camera (Sony A7s, Panasonic GH3/GH4, 5D Mark II/III) then the weight is definitely manageable. However, if you plan on kitting it out by adding a camera kit that adds 10+ lbs to the gimbal then you'll likely want to mount it on a Steadicam arm or use an EasyRig. The Movi, which is the Ronin's competitor (or vice-versa), weighs only about 4 lbs before camera. Of course, the most affordable Movi is the M5, which sells for around $5k and only supports cameras up to 4lbs, while the Ronin supports up to 16 lbs. You would have to spend $15k for the Movi M15 if you wanted to support up to 12 lbs.

Aside from the weight, the Ronin has better build quality, easier tool-less re-balancing, a great iOS app for changing settings on the fly, a power distribution box under the Gimbal stage that features USB and P-Tap power outputs, and a ton of extra's like a superb, if not overly large, hard shell case with wheels, a 2.4GHz remote transmitter for wireless control over pan, tilt, and roll, 4+ hour battery & charger, two accessory mounts for the handlebar, large quick release plate, a folding stand, and 3-allen wrenches with a variety of screws for different camera mounts..

You can use the Ronin in Underslung mode (normal mode for a gimbal) where the camera hangs under the handlebar, upright mode, where you flip the stage OVER the handlebar to get a higher view, and briefcase mode, where you hold the handlebar vertically to have a thinner profile and to capture low-angle shots with ease.

Amazing stabilization system for its price and it can carry a RED Epic/Scarlet!! One drawback is the noise the stabilization system generates while operating, it sounds like robocop moving its arms lol

Ugh, what a disappointment. I ignored the many reviews that say the Ronin just didn't work and had to be returned. I ignored the reputation DJI has for terrible post-sales customer service. I ignored the fact that when I purchased a DJI drone it arrived defective and needed to be replaced. I wish I would have listened because this Ronin is currently a $3000 paper weight that is getting returned without a single use.

I'm sure some people are getting Ronins that work perfectly out of the box but I sure didn't. After spending hours that turned into days trying to get this thing to work properly I had to give up. Without going into a crazy amount of detail, this gimbal is just messed up and can't balance itself. I literally never got it off the stand because it flops the camera all over the place and makes a TERRIBLE noise after it's turned on. The camera is perfectly hand-balanced (as instructed) but as soon as the motor is turned on it begins to slowly drift until it begins to scream. If I try to use the auto calibration function in the Ronin app it makes things even worse and starts spinning and rolling all over the place.

Another fun thing I discovered... The Ronin camera plate lock wasn't working. The screw holding it (and the camera) in place was loose, allowing my camera to violently slide. Even after tightening that screw I don't feel confident with $6500 worth of camera equipment on that plate.

It arrives in an awesome case that looks super cool but that's about all the joy this Ronin has given me. Good luck getting DJI to offer any assistance too. For all I know there is an easy fix (doubt it) but I don't have time to wait for DJI to MAYBE contact me. Unfortunately it's going right back into that super cool case and I won't be purchasing another Ronin. I don't have the time or energy to take a chance on another.

Pros : Stand Top Comes Off, Usb And Dtap, Battery System, Easy To Balance
Cons : Did I Say Too Heavy, Too Heavy, Breaks Easy
Best Uses : Concerts, Low Budget Films, Music Video
Describe Yourself : Camera Operator, Movi M10 Owner, Cinematographer
Was this a gift? : No

There is something majorly wrong with the consistency of the product line.

My friend bought one and after an hour the motor started SMOKING!!! Obviously things happen and i thought he might have done something wrong or just happen to get a bad one. He just got his second one today and already is having more problems with one of the motors! Thankfully not smoking.

So most would say, well he's doing something wrong, my thoughts exactly.

However I also bought one to test it out. I also own a Movi M10 and have been running one since before they came out. I even took it through the ringer shooting Macklemore tour videos with it every day for 3 months so i know how to balance a gimbal system.

When i got mine i was amazed that it came with a case that was so perfect. A few other Pros:
- Battery system
-usb and dtap plugs
-the mounting stand top can be taken off which is amazing to put on a cart
-having an ios app was perfect.
-Holds 15 pounds
-Easy to balance
-Pitch and roll controls could be used for video. Movi only allows it to roll/trim a small amount

I first used my RED EPIC with some gear but not even 10 pounds. Everything calibrated fine but it was a little slow on controls. I fixed that and played around with it for a bit. I turned it off and played around with it a little later but it stopped working. The motors would make loud noises and even when i took everything off it made noise like it was too heavy.
