Overview

Overview

The Ronin-MX was designed to carry many of the cinema and broadcast cameras used on sets worldwide. Its SmoothTrack™ algorithms ensure movements are smooth in every configuration. A repositioned battery improves balance while stability is enhanced by a camera cage which locks mounted cameras in place at the top and at the bottom. Silent motors prevent on set mics picking up motor noise.

Powerful & Accurate

Designed to resist high G-forces using powerful motors and IMUs, the Ronin-MX is engineered to maintain stability and hold horizon when mounted to an aircraft or a vehicle. When mounted to the M600 aerial system, it communicates directly with DJI’s flight controller to stabilize your footage.

Freedom to Move

A slip ring allows the Ronin-MX to rotate 360° continuously when mounted to aircraft or vehicles which opens up more creative options. This is further enhanced by an increase in tilt axis range from 90° straight down and beyond to 135°. Popular features of the Ronin series such as the three modes of operation and SmoothTrack™ are also present to deliver a range of creative angles and movements to filmmakers.

Even with only one operator, SmoothTrack™ technology ensures the Ronin-MX translates movements into smooth camera angle changes. SmoothTrack™ settings from speed to deadband to acceleration are fully customizable. A Single Axis Follow Mode enables two axes to be locked while SmoothTrack™ guides the camera along only one axis of motion.

Wireless Control & Transmission

The Ronin-MX is compatible with Lightbridge 2. Together, they provide long-range HD video transmission from the air to the ground from up to 3.1miles (5km) away. If combined with the optional DJI Focus and Focus Expansion Module, focus or aperture can also be pulled remotely with a twist of the wrist. An optional Remote Start/Stop add-on provides the ability to control shooting on a range of airborne cameras.

Comprehensive App Control

All gimbals require balancing before filming can commence. Configure your Ronin-MX to suit your camera and lens with DJI's Assistant Software for compatible iOS and Bluetooth Windows desktop devices.

Using DJI Assistant and the dedicated Assistant app for iOS and Android allows you to completely customize the Ronin-MX and its behavior. If connected to Lightbridge 2, the DJI GO app can be used to control how the M600 flies including Intelligent Flight Modes, remote control modes, move the gimbal, plus view an HD live feed from the camera. 

Fast & Precise Balancing

Save time and start shooting professionally stabilized video in under five minutes. Mount your camera to the Ronin-MX, quickly balance it, and then tap a button. The upgraded Auto Tune Stability (ATS) technology is more precise than before and completes the tuning and balancing processes with no tools necessary.

Flexible Operating Modes

Three modes of operation, found on all Ronin series products, make the Ronin-MX a powerfully flexible camera stabilization system.

Underslung Mode

This is the default position of the Ronin-MX stabilizer. It can be used in this mode without adjustments. It is the most comfortable position as you hold the camera directly in front of you at chest level. 

Upright Mode 

If you flip the gimbal forward 180-degrees it adjusts to shoot in Upright Mode. This position can be achieved before turning it on, too. This is the ideal position for car mounts and top/down perspectives. Hold it over your head to shoot above the crowd, carefully hold it through a sunroof, or position the camera in front of your face for eye-level POVs. 

Briefcase Mode 

Ideal for working in tight spaces, the Briefcase Mode positions the Ronin-MX gimbal close to your body for a slim profile. To reach Briefcase Mode, tilt the gimbal 90-degrees to the left or right on the roll axis. While in this mode, the remote cannot control the gimbal to pan, tilt, or roll. If you do not wish to convert your footage to Briefcase Mode when you tilt the gimbal during a shoot you can modify the settings in the DJI Assistant App so it will not automatically switch modes. 

Engineering

Refined Balance - A redesigned structure moves the Ronin-MX battery from the back to the front. This centers the weight of the camera, minimizing instability when flying directly forwards. It also dramatically increases the Ronin’s agility and ability to handle rapid movements or high-G situations.

Magnesium Construction - A redesigned structure moves the Ronin-MX battery from the back to the front. This centers the weight of the camera and minimizes instability when flying directly forwards. It also increases the Ronin’s agility and ability to handle rapid movements or high-G situations.

Universal Mounting - Mount the Ronin-MX to aircraft easily using a specially designed mounting plate. A separate universal Quick Release system doubles as a vibration dampening system and allows the Ronin-MX to connect to everything from jib to tripod. This plate isolates the Ronin-MX from unwanted vibrations.

Flexibility - Remove the handlebars individually to transport the Ronin-MX or position it close to walls or in other tight positions. The top handle bars remove with a quick twist so you can minimalize your gimbal, pack/unpack, or achieve multiple shooting positions. 

Power

Strengthened Motors & ESCs - A combination of stronger motors and ESCs makes the Ronin-MX 50% more powerful than the Ronin-M. This additional stiffness and power allows the system to better withstand wind resistance when mounted to moving vehicles and aircraft, as well as more rapid movements.

External Camera Battery - Cameras such as the RED EPIC need an external battery for power. A dedicated position designed for an optional battery plate provides an easy, cable free mounting point for a 2nd DJI Intelligent Battery. This provides (2) 12V P-tap power sources for powering cameras and accessories.

Intelligent Batteries - Intelligent Ronin-MX batteries are compact, light and offer a long battery life of 3 hours. Multiple batteries can be easily brought to set for a full day of filming. Over-charge and over-depletion protection is built in, as is individual cell charge balancing. Remaining power is shown by clear LEDs and in the DJI GO app.

Built-in Power Distribution - A dedicated power distribution box keeps wiring to a minimum while providing power to essential accessories. (2) regulated 12V P-taps, one 500mAh full-size USB connector, and a DJI Lightbridge connector enable connectivity and power to everything a filmmaker needs.

Control 

Remote Focus Control - The DJI Focus uses DJI's expertise in brushless motors for high precision and accuracy. The brushless motor puts just ±0.02 of accuracy in the hand so that turning the remote is just like turning the lens itself. It also features high torque and a fast reaction speed so that subjects can be kept in focus no matter how they move. When upgraded with a Focus Expansion Module, the Focus can control aperture or focus across Lightbridge 2’s 3.1miles (5km) range.

Precision Solo Camera Control - Simple to set up and use, the DJI Ronin Wireless Thumb Controller makes controlling the Ronin-MX easy and intuitive, enabling the capture of shots that would otherwise be impossible for a single operator.

2nd Operator Control – Like most two operator systems, the DJI Ronin-MX allows the 2nd operator to control the camera’s motion independently (using a motorized pan/tilt head) while the first operator physically moves the Ronin-MX handheld unit by carrying it. Instead of relying upon a fly-by approach where you aim the camera lens in general, without viewing through a viewfinder, the 2nd operator transmitter/remote control permits you to frame your shots and complete complex camera moves.

A wireless 2.4GHz remote controller is included with the Ronin-MX enabling a 2nd operator to remotely control pan, tilt, roll, and other functions. By using the optional Lightbridge 2 Remote Controller, you have long range control of the Ronin-MX up to 3.1 miles (5km).

Short Range Wireless Transmission - On the ground, the SRW-60G* allows filmmakers to see the image from the camera without running cables up the Ronin-MX. In the air, it sends the camera’s feed from the camera direct to Lightbridge 2 allowing it to stream this image down to the pilot and cinematographer.

*SRW-60G is not permitted for use on aerial platforms in North America.
