The Ronin-S has been a serious competitor on the gimbal market. It is aimed more at the pros than just the prosumers. You can tell by its features and the usual $749 price tag. Today DJI, however, released an Essential Bundle Edition of the Ronin-S which makes it the cheapest it’s ever been. And yes this is a few leagues above the newly released Osmo Pocket.
Cheap Ronin-S Essential Bundle
You still get the Ronin-S Gimbal, the BG37 Battery Grip, Camera Mounting Plate, Camera Riser and other bits and pieces. Mainly the difference between the Essential Bundle and the Normal Bundle now called “Standard Kit” is the lack of Focus Wheel attachment, IR cable, Type C and B control cables ($19), the tripod/extended grip is made out of plastic and not metal, and the 24W USB Power Adapter isn’t included. The zipper accessories box, the allen wrench and a 2nd velcro cable tie is also not in the essential bundle.
When you look at everything you really need, you could pick up the essential bundle and the mutli-camera control cable for your camera and still be over $200 cheaper than the Standard Kit.
