Vlog 122: Ronin S Unboxing Video...

in #dji3 years ago

I've been waiting for months and perhaps this isn't why I havn't done any vlogging... but it's finally here. My Ronin S.

Come hang with me while I unbox the ronin S, a gimbal by DJI. A gimbal is an electronic mechanism used to help stabalize a camera. The ronin s is supposed to deliver that buttery smooth camera motion even while the videographer is moving. So far I have had limited success with it but as I continue to adjust the settings and learn more about the ronin s I am having better and better results. However I have to say I can get a pretty steady shot just using a camera strap and force away from the body. I am not super impressed with the change but I still need more time.

the opening shot shows when my ronin s was spazzing out. I guess I thought I had run auto tune but it hadn't actually run yet as I found it makes a pretty terrible noise when auto tuning that I had not heard the first time I tried to auto tune.

there is a bug where the ronin app won't connect via bluetooth unless you turn bluetooth on after the app is open... this took me a few hours to figure out and spent a lot of the time I had to use the ronin this week on trouble shooting that.

now I have things up and running a bit more. I am hoping to get outside and see what sort of shots I can get with the gimbal. very exciting stuff for sure!!

Your news that cell phones cause cancer was as slow to get to you as that Ronin package. ;) glad to see you back posting videos. balancing and weight distribution is key and a pain with the gimbals. I think there are snap on counter weights for most of them.

Yea I mean I’ve always known they arnt good, I just hadn’t read any of the research. My phone stays in airplane mode most of the day now

I heard that keeping it in you pocket can lead to becoming sterile. I remember they used to sell blockers that you could put between the phone and your head while talking to "protect" against the radiation or whatever the bad stuff is.

Yea there have been studies that show it can reduce sperm motility. blockers don't do much unless they totally block the signal as your phone will just amp up its signal when it sees a lower signal coming from the towers. soo anything that would totally block the signal works but you might as well just put your phone on airplane mode... which is what I've been doing. at the very least turn off your LTE when its not in use.
