Hi!

Sony NEX-6 is not in the compartibility list but it still can be mounted on DJI Ronin S and well-balanced, see the video how. I believe, same trick would help Sony NEX-7 and a6000 owners too -- camera bodies are so lightweight and lens mount shifted to the left, the counterweight on the arm is needed to be well-balanced.


Question to Sony a6000 owners: were you able to balance your camera so that balance test shows good-to-excellent results and arms not hitting each others?


Wishlist for DJI staff: It would be nice to have clip-on counterweight sets for those with ligher camera setups (like my monkey wrench but proper ones), the top couterweight bracket would be highly welcomed as well...

Here is a test of Ronin S with Samsung EX2F compact camera -- it works well. Additional step that may be required is to tune Stiffness and Strength settings from Configuration / Motor Parameter options of Ronin application to avoid gimbal/camera vibration which happens on gimbal self-calibration when it is powered-on.

hi! good videos, thanks!

Can you please use the "samsung ex2f" to take some video footage with the ronin- and then upload "that" footage?
I.e., move left, right, up/down, etc - because I want to see how good the 'quality' is with a lightweight camera.

Thanks!

Sure, here we are!

Please pay your attention that EX2F has quite limited video features like low profile codec and no video stabilizer...

one last thing (if you don't mind) - if you could just take a 'steady' picture (i.e., no walking, etc) - but just of a regular scene (say a house) for 30 seconds - I just want to see if there is any 'jitter' (I don't think there would be - but couldn't quite tell from your video because you were walking/the boucne in your step/etc)... but thank-you!

It is steady. Whole thing is rock solid and motors keep the payload tight. You can play with settings to configure it's up to your preference -- there was a jitter with autofocus lenses but I've tweaked motor settings and its absolutely stable now

Okay, thanks. If you don't mind - could you just take a 30 second video of your dog (or whatever), just not moving, so I can see the output? (Because it will really help), thanks!

  Sony 35mm f/1.8   (SEL35F18)
  SmallRig cage for a6000
  Lens hood
  Lens support
  MCC-Multi Cable

BTW, I have to admit that counterweight from my original message doesn't work well at the end -- still there are dead angles where in spite of having physical space to rotate further, gimbal logic simply stops motors moving forward.

Anyways, thank you for sharing!

I'm upgrading my camera to Sony a7iii this holiday season so will see a difference in experience of handling it with Ronin S

You welcome

Hey @DJI staff, should this guy buy Ronin S at the end, you owe me a fortune!

Okay, thanks! That's great, exactly what I needed to see!

So yes, I guess I can get it
