Ronin M

Canon 1dX ii + Ronin-M

The new Canon 1DX Mark II and DJI Ronin-M...our new favorite toys.  Can't wait to shoot Flow Tribe's music video Monday.  Stay tuned!

At first, we weren't sure the Canon 1DX II was going to fit on the DJI Ronin-M or balance properly because of the size...but OH were we wrong!!  The Ronin-M provided AMAZING stability / smooth motion control and the Canon 1DX II surpassed all of our expectations for low light performance and auto focus.

STILL PHOTOS:

Overall, our first attempt with the Canon 1DX II was successful...the low light performance is second to none and the auto focus ability is spot on.

The Canon 1DX II on the DJI Ronin-M was a great combination for us...the only piece to the puzzle we need to add is the external monitor for the operator on the Ronin-M mount, and the external monitor for the remote control operator.
