Hey guys! Just in case you didn't find out, our class just received the new DJI Ronin. For those of you who don't know what that is, it is a 3-axis Stabilization Gimbal System. In other words, you put your camera on this piece of equipment so that when you walk, the camera will not be shaking at all resulting in a smooth tracking shoot. This piece of equipment costs up to $3,000! Most of you have seen me and Micah trying to balance out the ronin during class. I can tell you that is it wasn't as easy as I expected but we finally got a pretty decent balance. We took a couple test shots with it and the shots looked very cool. It was really intuitive and easy to use once you get the balancing. There are still a couple of kinks we gotta fix before the Ronin is perfect and ready to be used for our projects. But it should be ready just in time for 3rd quarter! Another great thing about the Ronin is that it came with a LCD monitor. Its basically a screen that is a little bit smaller than the iPad Mini that allows you to see clearly what you are filming. It also gives you a larger image to monitor your footage a lot better. I really can't wait to test out the Ronin on a real project so, until next time, check out some more DJI Ronin Test Shots!
