Highly compact and extensively stabilized – yes, it’s a DJI Ronin gimbal. This time it’s the DJI Ronin-SC (the C standing for “Compact”) and it’s designed specifically for mirrorless cameras.

It’s the smaller sibling to the DSLR-focused Ronin S, and it’s almost half the weight at just 971g. The Ronin-SC can also be taken apart easily for travel, but it’s still built to be durable and lasting, with a construction of magnesium, steel, aluminum and composite plastic.
