DJI Ronin SC review – a full feature mirrorless gimbal

DJI Ronin SC review

The DJI Ronin SC is the latest gimbal from DJI focused at the consumer and prosumer markets. The Ronin SC is aimed at the latest wave of mirrorless cameras and does a great job of keeping them stable. Let’s take a look at the Ronin SC and see if its the right gimbal for you.

The DJI Ronin SC will set you back AUD$569 and AUD$709 for the pro combo, which includes the follow focus gear and a few other extras.

Ronin SC is designed to work with the latest mirrorless and lightweight DSLR cameras with a max weight of under 2kg.

Pros

High quality

The Ronin SC follows along with DJI’s great build quality. The gimbal has a metal finish with a rubber handle to make handling easy and breeze.

Simple to use

The Ronin SC is extremely easy to use, you can either use the gimbal by itself or download the companion app, unlocking a few more features to take the Ronin experience to the next level.

Smartphone features

The companion app allows you to use DJI’s ActiveTrack technology found on its drones right in the gimbal. The app uses the phone’s camera which you attach to the gimbal. The camera will then track a chosen object automatically.

Cons

Focus wheel and motor

It would have been great to get the focus wheel included in the standard model but it, unfortunately, isn’t. The only minor con about the focus wheel is the way it connects to the camera with a pass-through cable, which requires to be screwed in.

Non-standard mounting plate

The Ronin SC uses a non-standard mounting plate due to the size of the gimbal. It uses a small version of the usual Manfrotto quick release plate. While it’s not a big deal, it just means you can’t quickly swap from the gimbal to a tripod for example.
