Engineered with exceptional quality, the DJI Ronin MX is made for the demands of cinema filmmaking. This 3-axis gimbal stabiliser is what the professional needs to produce a fluid cinema-quality video. Whether you’re filming from the ground or in the air, this gimbal’s stabilisers ensure easy balance. The repositioned battery in this model gives better balance for a smoother shot.
Built to resist high-G forces, it maintains stability and holds the horizon even when attached to a vehicle or in the air. The 360-degree rotation and tilt axis range from 90 degrees to 135 degrees enables creative angles. Its smooth algorithms ensure fluid movements and a smoother shot that can withstand wind resistance.
Holding up to 4.5kg of weight, the lightweight construction from magnesium is strong. The camera is locked in securely with complete rigidity using universal mounting. Taking most cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras and DSLRs, the camera cage has a strong hold for various fits so you’re not restricted with what you can use.
The quiet motors don’t transmit noise so you don’t need to worry about noise pollution to your microphones. Even with its powerful motors, it still runs with a silent purr. You won’t need to be concerned about noise distractions, ensuring your footage has no distractions.
The gimbal can be controlled various ways. You can operate it from a tuning stand for quick calibration. It can be remote controlled while attached to an aircraft. Panning, tilting and rolling is all made possible by using the remote control with long-range control of up to 5km. Or, the gimbal can be mounted to a tripod and used independently.
The optional wireless thumb controller, which is available separately, means you can operate the gimbal solo. It has easy set-up and makes controlling the gimbal easy. Some shots are hard to capture with a single operator, so this option is great to capture complex shots.
The DJI Go App allows for calibration and adjustment on the fly. Compatible with iOS and Android, you’ll be able to use this app on most devices. It can be connected to Lightbridge 2 to control flight with HD live feed.

Using a monitor with the Ronin MX is almost essential. It’s difficult to see your camera screen while it’s on a gimbal, whereas a monitor can sit more at eye level. A simple and easy way to mount your monitor to the gimbal is a DJI monitor mount. We recommend the SmallHD 502 as it’s bright and large, making it great for day and night use.
The DJI GO app allows you to capture and share your content even when you’re on the go.
Balance the camera as best you can before powering up the gimbal. The less work the motors have to do in balancing, the better the stabilisation will be.
It’s a great idea to keep spare batteries on hand for a long day of filming, as most batteries last only an hour or so. The DJI Ronin-M 4S battery (1580mAh) is a good option.
