This week DJI have introduces a new package option for the Ronin S called the Essentials Kit.

This reduced cost version of the Ronin S includes the basics you need to get going.
Costing $499/459 the Essentials package includes

- Ronin-S Gimbal

- Plastic BG37 Grip

- Camera Mounting Plate

- USB-C Charging Cable

- Gimbal Hook-and-Loop Strap

- Extended Grip/Tripod

- Lens Support

- Camera Riser

- Three 1/-20 Camera Screws

- Storage Case

Looking closers the main differences are that the kit comes with a plastic tripod rather than the metal one and does not included the DJI Focus Wheel, Rapid Charger or the Camera Connection Cable, this means you will need to charge it off any normal USB power source however this will take longer that using the DJI adapter. However Touch Bar MacBook Pro users can use their charger to get faster results.
This is actually a very well priced kit and actually much of what is not included you may not need anyway, for Sony users especially as the main kit still does not include the Multi USB Cable.

Overall if your looking at the Ronin S this is probably the best way to get the device then pick and choose what extras you need separately like the correct connection cable for your camera ect.

You can order the Ronin S Essentials Kit from

Please note the above is an affiliate link, using these cost nothing more to your seofnhowever I may receive a small commission, if you would like to support me using these is a great way to do that. Thanks.
