DJI Ronin-S DSLR/Mirrorless Gimbal Coming This Month for $699
DJI has announced its new Ronin-S gimbal for DSLR and mirrorless cameras, which we first saw back at CES 2018, will be available on June 11 for $699. It’s a more compact gimbal than the larger Ronin models and is designed to handle the payload of a basic DSLR or mirrorless camera and lens (up to an 8 lbs. payload).
It features a single-hand design for the lighter packages and has an offset motor roll for better visibility of the camera’s rear display – and thus, further lightening the load with no need to use an external display. It also offers a number of controls and is compatible with several DJI accessories from prior Ronin models. The battery life is rated for 12 hours of use. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

DJI’s Tiny Mavic Pro is a GoPro Karma Assassin
DJI has grown to be the 800 lb gorilla in the drone industry. Other challengers like Yuneec, 3DR and GoPro appear to be in a race for a distant second-place spot.
We thought GoPro might be able to make a big splash and a bit of a comeback with its Karma drone last year. Of course, we all know how that went.
GoPro’s Karma looked great with a collapsible form factor. Then, DJI dropped the Mavic Pro on us a few days later that made the Karma look much less attractive. It was smaller, lighter and cheaper, as well as having an arguably better spec list. And then, to top it off, GoPro issued a recall for the Karma drones that it had sold because they kept falling out of the sky – thanks to a faulty battery latch. [Read more…]
