While we were all expecting DJI to announce the DJI Spark at yesterday’s event, it announced the DJI Ronin 2 instead.
It makes a lot more sense to introduce a device like the DJI Ronin 2 during this event than something like the DJI Spark which is clearly aimed at consumers, not professionals.
So let’s have a look at the new DJI Ronin 2 while we still wait for the DJI Spark to come.
When DJI released the original DJI Ronin they changed the professional image stabilization market. It offered professional stabilization at a uniquely low pricepoint. But there were limitations to the Ronin.
Now with the new DJI Ronin 2 has made updates that will make the Ronin appear to an even wider audience.
The new DJI Ronin 2 has got a bigger cage and can handle a bigger load. It can carry loads almost up to 30lbs (13.6 kg). This takes it beyond just DSLRs and allows it to carry much heavier cameras, like RED cameras, as well. Obviously this will broaden the appeal of the DJI Ronin 2 even more.
Now even though we mainly focus on DJI’s line of flying products we still wanted to pay some attention to this. So let’s take a quick look at the Ronin 2’s main features:
- For both DSLRs an Cinema Cameras
- 30 Pound Payload Capacity
- Enhanced SmoothTrack Algorithm and GPS
- Upright, Underslung, and Briefcase Modes
- Easy Underslung/Upright Transitions
- 2-Axis Mode for Use with Steadicam
- Retractable Feet/Self-Supporting Design
- Camera Control For Select Cameras
- 2.4 / 5.8 GHz Switchable Remote
- Up to 0.6 Mile Control Range
All in all it’s another great DJI product and you can find out even more about it here.
