Hey, everyone!

I bought a Ronin-M last year and love it.


A couple of questions:

Is it wise to have lens image stabliziation on ON the lens when using the Ronin-M?

Example: I have a Canon 24-105 with IS, and I usually leave it on when I shoot. I haven't seemed to have any issues with my Ronin-M footage when it's left on. Also, I have a 24mm Sigma Art lense, that I've also used with the Ronin as well. But that footage looks pretty awful when I use that lens on the Ronin. I know that I am balacing the Ronin correctly.


My second question: What are the best lenses for the Ronin-M? I shoot with an EOS R, and C100s.

Thanks, everyone!

An additional (lens) stabilisation is not recommended as it could interfere with the gimbal itself and cause worse results.The reality is though that I have seen people using it and it worked for them. It is pretty tricky to get the ronin perfectly smooth.
Generally - wider lens means less potential problems with shakiness.

I use the c100 mk ii with the ronin-m, I've tried a mix of lenses with and without in built IS, if you're working without it, using warp stabiliser in premiere/after effects usually takes the movement out of it, especially judders around footsteps etc. but I tend to use the Canon 16-35mm with the IS on and it looks very smooth then add warp stabiliser to make it as smooth as possible.
