Ronin 2 exists to let filmmakers capture the scene they see in their mind. Upgraded high torque motors allow it to support a wider range of cameras, resist high winds and G-forces caused when mounted to a car and keep it moving smoothly in flight.
With up to eight times more powerful motors than previous iterations, Ronin 2 can withstand sustained speeds of over 75mph with camera builds as heavy as 30lbs. We’ve increased power without sacrificing control. With encoded motors and extreme precision, the same 0.02° of accuracy remains.
The simplicity of Ronin has been amplified with Ronin 2, making setup and use easier than ever. Everything, from mounting cameras to balancing and tuning, powering accessories and transportation has been tweaked and refined for ease and speed.
Enhanced intelligence means filmmakers can get shots with Ronin 2 that would once have needed specialist expertise or additional equipment, from total smoothness control to studio-oriented smart features. Including: Panorama, Timlapse and CamAnchor.
Every element of Ronin 2 has been designed to maximize reliability, from materials to the splash-proof enclosed motor design, cable management, and redundancy. All of this creates a system that shines in the most demanding of shooting environments.

What are the main differences between Ronin and Ronin 2?
Like the Ronin, the Ronin 2 was designed for handheld camera applications but is now more versatile with aerial, car mounting, cable and Steadicam capabilities. Higher torque motors give the Ronin 2 a larger payload and new GPS algorithms allow it to perform smoothly in high-stress environments. Along with many other improvements, the Ronin 2 brings a whole new level of stabilization to Ronin users.
What is the Ronin 2’s maximum payload?
The Ronin 2’s maximum payload is approximately 30lbs (13.6kg). Through our own extensive testing, the Ronin 2 can handle an Arri Alexa Mini with a Canon CINE-SERVO 17-120mm lens comfortably.
How much does the Ronin 2 weigh?
The Ronin 2 weighs roughly 9lbs (4.2kg).
Overall, is stabilization on the Ronin 2 higher-performing and more accurate than the Ronin/Ronin-M/Ronin-MX?
Yes. The Ronin 2 was created with stronger axis motors and its SmoothTrack algorithm has been enhanced for a smoother performance. A new GPS module enables it to perform exceptionally in high G-force situations.
Are all three previous modes of operation still available on the Ronin 2?
Yes. All three previous modes of operation — upright, underslung, and briefcase — are available with the Ronin 2. What’s new is that users can now transition between upright and underslung modes without changing the position of the camera. Users can now lock the yaw motor for 2-axis mode while using the Ronin 2 with a Steadicam. Now you can lock each axis for an easier setup, better balancing, and safer transportation.
How does the new yaw axis quick release differ from previous Ronins?
The new yaw axis quick release mount in Ronin 2 means a faster set up in different scenarios, enabling an easier transition from handheld to car and aerial applications.
Does the Ronin 2 come with a dedicated stand?
No. However, the Ronin 2’s new hand and ring grip design come with retractable feet so that the whole gimbal system can stand upright on a flat surface. The grip is detachable and can be separated when standing is not required for shooting or transportation.
