What can the DJI Ronin-S do?

The DJI Ronin-S is more than a miniature gimbal stabilizer. It’s capabilities give us a handheld gimbal that is able to hold 8 lbs on its system, can support almost any mirrorless or DSLR and has a 12 hour battery life. It also has a unique motor kill feature that kicks in when you double tap the power button. This allows the device to go into rest mode without fully powering down. There are a slew of other DJI Ronin app settings that you can play around for smoother track settings, tilt options, and more.
