The DJI Ronin and Ronin M are two of our most popular gimbal stabilizer rentals. The two stabilizers are very similar, so we wanted to make a video highlighting the differences between the two.
As Josh states in the video, the main differences between the Ronin and Ronin M is size and carrying capacity. The Ronin M rig weighs only about 5 lbs, while the Ronin weighs 9 lbs. Those few pounds can make a world of difference to your operators shoulders and arms. The tradeoff is that the Ronin M can only carry a camera package that weighs less than 8 lbs, while the original Ronin can hold up to 16 lbs. This means the Ronin M is suitable for small DSLR packages and cameras like the A7S and GH4. If you want to fly something like a RED or C300, the Ronin is going to be the way to go.
