3-AXIS STABILIZED HANDHELD GIMBAL SYSTEM
Developed for the filmmaking professional, the Legiondrones Ronin marks a generational leap in camera stabilization technology. Its custom sensors, powerful motors and advanced algorithms put world-class precision in your hands.
SAVE TIME ON SET
Once your camera is configured, the Ronin can be ready to shoot in as little as 5 minutes, saving time and increasing efficiency on set. The built-in ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology intelligently tunes Ronin to your camera rig at the touch of a button.
Transform tilt and pan movements on the Ronin into smooth and stabilized camera angle changes.
3 OPERATION MODES
3 different modes of operation allow the Ronin to be used in different scenarios, all of which can be entered without changing settings on the Ronin Assistant app or a 2nd operator remote. SmoothTrack functionality remains in all three modes.
1. UPRIGHT MODE
Flip the gimbal over to bring the camera closer to eye level for a higher perspective without straining to lift it. Use this mode when sticking the Ronin out of a car’s sunroof or when trying to shoot over a crowd of people.
2. UNDERSLUNG MODE
The default gimbal operation is the Underslung mode. The camera can be comfortably held low to the ground, at chest level or anywhere in between. This mode is also used when the Ronin is suspended from a camera jib or crane.
3. BRIEFCASE MODE
When a slimmer gimbal profile is needed, i.e. when moving through doorways or narrow paths, Briefcase mode is ideal. It allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase.
EXTREMELY DURABLE, HIGH BUILD QUALITY
Made from precision machined aircraft-grade aluminum, the Ronin offers the durability to withstand rugged use on set and meets the high demand for reliability. No loose cables or zip ties give it a clean, professional appearance.
MOBILE BLUETOOTH ASSISTANT SOFTWARE
The feature-rich iOS and Android Legiondrones Assistant software allows easy setup of all system configurations. The PC and Mac Assistant also provides control of all the Ronin’s functionalities in addition to firmware upgrades for future features.
SUPPORTS A MULTITUDE OF CAMERAS AND LENSES
The Ronin is not customized for any specific camera. It can be easily adjusted to carry everything from small & light M4/3 cameras to heavier systems like the Red Epic.
BASED ON ZENMUSE TECHNOLOGY
The Legiondrones Zenmuse gimbals were the first commercially available systems in the world to utilize brushless motor technology for professional filming and aerial photography. The Zenmuse gimbal line has long been a benchmark that others have been measured against. The Ronin is based off the same technology and also offers multiple control modes, a built-in IMU, and customized direct drive brushless motors.
2ND OPERATOR CONTROLLER
An included 2nd operator transmitter allows a 2nd operator to pan, tilt, and roll independent of the Ronin’s movement. SmoothTrack speeds and operation modes can be assigned with 2 custom toggle switches on the transmitter.
HIGH PERFORMANCE PROCESSING POWER
A customized, advanced 32-bit floating point DSP processor offers more efficiency than an ARM processor, for faster processing of signals from the onboard encoders.
HIGH TORQUE, PRECISION CONTROLLED MOTORS
Motors have been developed with the high performance Ronin in mind. Using FOC control, you can count on high precision, low vibration, and increased torque. Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders in each axis provide the highest levels of accuracy. This combination of custom motor modules and features is found in no other system.
BUILT-IN RECEIVER & REMOTE CONTROL
A built-in Legiondrones receiver allows the Ronin to be remotely controlled by a 2nd operator. The gimbal operator can focus on gimbal movement while the 2nd operator pays attention to camera movement. 2nd operator mode is also useful for gimbal control when working with flying platforms for aerial cinematography. A D-Bus port is also included if a non-Legiondrones receiver is required.
QUICK RELEASE TOP HANDLE BAR
The top bar features a quick release system allowing easy attachment and detachment for rapid setup and break down. The same attachment can be used for vehicle or multi-rotor mounting.
QUICK SWAP SMART BATTERY
Over 6 Hours of Runtime
Easily mount accessories including a video monitor, 3rd party video transmitters and more on the top bar accessory mounts.
POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX
Two regulated 12V P-taps, one 500mAH full size USB connector, and also a connection point for the Legiondrones Lightbridge Long Range HD Video Downlink are provided. This offers convenient power connection for various accessories including follow focus systems, HD video downlinks and others, all while keeping the wiring to a minimum.
DUAL 15MM RODS FOR FOLLOW-FOCUS ACCESSORIES
Follow focus systems and matte boxes can be easily mounted on the Ronin using industry standard dual 15mm segmented rods. The segmented rods allow for customization of different lengths, dependent on camera and lens setup.
PROTECTIVE CARRYING CASE
An extremely strong, durable and water tight carrying case with rolling wheels provides easy transportation. Dense custom cut EPP foam protects the Ronin and accessories.
PRECISE FOCUS CONTROL
Use the Ronin with the Legiondrones Focus for wireless control of focus or aperture from anywhere on a set.
