A new product was recently released by the DJI. Ronin-S is a brand new Osmo device which allows you to connect your photo camera to it and use such combo as a fully functional Osmo mechanism.
Gimbals have revolutionized how we film everything from home videos to blockbusters movies. As someone who typically films everything solo, using a gimbal like the Ronin-M quickly became a burden even though it was a great product. I have personally had my eyes on multiple one handed gimbals for quite some time but many of them couldn't hold the weight I needed or were not a polished product that I wanted to rely on when I'm half way across the world. That all changes today with DJI's release of their first single-handed stabilizer.

One of the largest benefits to a single-handed gimbal is the ability to set it down without the need for stand. DJI has gone a step further and added the ability to create time-lapses and motion-lapses using the gimbal. This is a big deal for someone who travels as light as possible, giving them the ability to shoot video with a gimbal and add motion to time-lapses all in one device. Ronin-S is fully compatible with numerous models of cameras, such as Canon, Panasonic, Nikon and Sony . The ability to add and interchange accessories, create motion time-lapses, create on the fly movement profiles, and also having some of the best software support at such a competitive price really pushes the Ronin-S to the forefront of the market.
Overal Ronin-S will be very handy for people who have a compatible camera and want to widen its horizons using it as a fully functional Osmo device.
