DJI has launched the Ronin-S at CES 2018 in Last Vegas, bringing silky, drone-like video to DSLR and mirrorless cameras via its gimbal technology.
The Chinese dronemaker has been making single-handed camera stabilizers for smartphones and its own cameras for the past few years through its Osmo product line. It has also made larger rigs for DSLR cameras through its Ronin line. But the Ronin-S promises to combine the best of both worlds by creating a gimbal for high-end cameras that isn’t bulky or complicated to set up.
It is still not clear how much weight the gimbal can support, which means users who need to shoot with large telephoto lenses or other accessories may want to think twice before committing to the Ronin-S.
Prices and shipping will be announced in the second quarter of 2018.
