Reviews on the DJI Robin-SC, the Ronin-S for mirrorless

The release of the DJI Ronin-SC stabilizer that I talked about yesterday revived my desire to have in my equipment a gimbal able to compensate for the lack of stabilization of my Fujifilm X-t20. I had watched a lot of Zhiyun weebill lab 3 but could not make up my mind …

The arrival of the Ronin-SC changes a little the deal, especially since it is cheaper.

Here is, in this article, a reminder of its main features and a compilation of opinions available on the web (and mainly YouTube)

Characteristics

The Ronin-SC is the little brother of DJI Ronin-S. At this point, it is much lighter since it exceeds barely the kilogram but in return, it will not support a assembly of 2 kilos maximum. As such, it is still necessary to check the compatibility matrix provided by DJI (https://www.dji.com/en/ronin-sc/info#downloads) to make sure that your set box and lens is compatible ( see my news yesterday for Fujifilm). Some videos show that some mirrorless box, pushed back to balance the lens, come into abutment and block an axis of the gimbal (Canon Eos R)

For the rest, it has all the features of the Ronin-S without sacrificing a lot of life since it would hold 10 hours against 11, noted in a video. It therefore allows

  • Stabilization on 3 axes
  • Switch in sport mode and selfie
  • 360 ° roll rotation
  • Tracking targets with ActiveTrack 3 (Via phone)
  • Motorized timelapse (via phone)
  • Tracking phone movements (copy of rotations)
  • Smartphone support
  • For the combo pro version: focus engine and focus wheel associated

The pro combo pack also contains the entire Follow Focus system: lens rings, focus motor, mounting rod and accessories)

Reviews compilation

The first opinions are rather comforting because they denote very few differences with the Ronin-S apart from what it is able to handle. The features are complete and very interesting for a relatively low price range and complete accessories. You still have to verify that it will be compatible with your arsenal but if you are looking for a stabilizer for your mirrorless case, the DJI Ronin-SC is the choice to be made at this time
