Hi DJI staff + anyone else...

What is the "minimum" weight needed to properly balance a camera? (I want to know if my camera will work).

Thanks!

Hi there, there is no limit of the minimum payload, the Ronin-S can be stabilized when being used with cameras that weigh less than 3.6 kg, with a width smaller than or equal to 205 mm, and a height less than or equal to 150 mm. Thanks for your input.

Hi. So - does that mean then - my camera that weighs about 280g (0.3kg) can be balanced and work fine with the ronin-s? (just want to confirm, because I know most dslr's, etc might be about 1-2kg).
If so, then I think I will get it.

Thanks!

Hi there, your camera can be used with Ronin-S but it may fail to be physically balanced, we recommend to use the cameras in our compatible list for better performance: https://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/ ... ility_List_0920.pdf

Okay - do you have any specs then on the 'minimum' balance load, - OR - if I add a 'weight' to the camera - will it balance properly then?

OR - Could you please have your staff run a simple test with a compact camera (if they have access, specifically the "sony rx100 v" - to see if it balances a-okay? If it does - then I will definitely get it. I just don't want to have a situation where if I buy it then find out it doesn't work. But if it DOES work, then that would be great - and yes, I would get it.

Thanks!

You could balance the sony rx100 on the ronin if you added some weight to it. But the question is why would you? there are cheaper gimbals and Steadicam solutions out there that would work much better for your type of camera.

If you're using this for professional work, I'd suggest buying a new camera first. If not, go for a cheaper option because you'll have to do some mods to add weight to your camera, which will just end up with you not using the ronin due to all the hassle you'll have to go through.

Hi,

I have bought the DJI Ronin S, and I have a Canon EOS 200D camera which is 453 grams, which I now realise is probably too light to use with this gimbal.  I have tried balancing the camera with the gimbal but have had no luck.

I cannot return the gimbal or camera, and do not have the money to purchase another camera. So basically my question is, is there a way I can add weight to the camera so that it works with this gimbal? Are there any weights/products that exist to help with this?  

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated! I am a complete camera/videoing novice!

Thanks!

Lauren
