My first test of the Ronin and I am impressed!
With the addition of an Easyrig I was up and running in SmoothTrack mode in minutes, delivering a fairly intricate unrehearsed follow shot on a 16mm lens (this at 6KHD, so fairly wide).
I found it very intuitive to use... still need to get used to its visual signature and 'quirks.'
Always exciting to expand the vocabulary of camera movement tools out there. The 'handover' potential of this system is particularly exciting.
Next challenge will be the addition of a trimmed down mattebox and remote focus unit... whilst not maxing-out the gimbal's motors!
Here pictured with Arri LCS remote focus, wireless video, full HD monitoring, Duclos 11-16mm and an LMB15 mattebox.
The 'quirks' are ironed out and now, together with the addition of Flowcine's 'Serene-Arm', I am getting motion stability on a 32mm lens! (this with a set of UltraPrimes which work equally well for weight/balance)
And for the more studious, a fascinating analysis from the 'Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience' of camera movement and cognition... where smooth Steadicam-like motion comes out on top:
