The Ronin-S is equipped with a motorized 3-axis gimbal that stabilizes the camera for pitch, roll and yaw. It even stabilizes while recording quick action. The motors in the gimbal are whisper quiet. The rubberized Ronin-S handle is designed for a secure, steady, one-handed grip, letting the operator move with the action without losing control. The Ronin-S comes with a short tripod that, when closed, doubles as a handle extension for extra-secure two-handed grip, including in flashlight mode.
The Ronin-S doesn’t have to be handheld. Mount it to a tripod, a car, an RC buggy, a dolly, a cable, a boom or a jib. When car-mounted, the gimbal motors can function at vehicle speeds up to 46 mph. (If you mount with a device equipped with suction cups, make sure you don’t go beyond the capabilities of the mount.) The Ronin-S also works with the Manfrotto 501PL type quick-release system, which means it will fit any number of available mounts, some of which you may already have.
Auto Tune and Torque Control
Auto Tune is accessed from the handle and set up with the app. It allows the operator to adjust the torque of the gimbal motors to suit the scene. Three levels of gimbal motor aggressiveness are available.
Five programmable functions make it easy to achieve sophisticated video effects:
Capture: Use the app to control the camera, record with the trigger or take a photo.
Panorama: All you need to do is plug in your camera information and the span of your photo. The app does everything else.
Time-lapse: Set the shutter, aperture, ISO, exposure value, white balance, shutter interval, duration of the time lapse, and frame rate. The app tells you how long the video will take to record.
Motion lapse: Set the same values as in Time-lapse but program in motion and the tripod-mounted Ronin-S will move the camera automatically.
Track: Similar to Motion lapse, Track lets you set as many as five waypoints in recording a video.
