DJI Ronin-S Overview
The set up and balancing procedures of the Ronin-S are similar to the larger Ronin and Movi Gimbals. Set up is quick and easy, with the incorporated tripod/extension, allowing easy balancing of the tilt, roll and pan gimbals. Performance and tuning are handled by the app, which is intuitive to use, providing all the possible variants to get the controlled shots you need.
Although the Ronin-S kits available for hire from Superduck come with a focus wheel, this only works with certain cameras, such as the Panasonic GH5S, although DJI plan to add to the range over the coming months.
The Ronin-S supports a range of DSLR and mirrorless cameras from a number of manufacturers, including Nikon and Canon, but different cameras have varying levels of connection. Currently, Panasonic offers the greatest levels of compatibility with their GH5 and GH5S models working with all aspects of the Ronin-S, but it also works extremely well with the BMPCC 4K.

Automated Creative Modes
The Ronin-S features a collection of pre-set creative features to give users exceptional results on both planned and spontaneous shots. Modes are available through the dedicated Ronin app, which you can download from the App Store to your phone. The DJI Website lists the compatible phones for this app.
The following modes are available:
Panorama – Allows you to create detailed panoramas with ease.
Timelapse – Record hours of footage to be sped up into a few seconds for a unique perspective.
Motionlapse – Create an advanced moving timelapse for a dramatic shot with minimal equipment.
Track – Shoot a repeatable shot to achieve the highest levels of detail in your scene.
