Costing $699 US and £669 in the UK and its available to pre order from DJI Here

http://click.dji.com/AHaZe1oTt0pits2...0034&pm=custom



The Ronin S is a single handed DSLR and Mirrorless Camera gimbal that can support models up to 3.6kg and still provide stabilises footage while on the move, I purchased mine at the same time as the Panasonic GH5 and have been using this combination for over a month now.



Features



Superior 3-Axis Stabilization with 3.6 kg Tested Payload Capacity


The Ronin S is fitted with very powerful motors, its been tested up to 3.6kg but many people have exceeded this with large cameras like a RED and still got solid stabilisation results.

The Ronin S has Autotune that is able to tune its motor power so no matter if you have a Sony A6300 or and GH5 with Cage its always giving you great performance.


Camera Control

On supported camera models you can control the shutter, start and stop recording and focus via the built-in buttons on the Ronin S Grip, it also means the Ronin S can automatically fire the shutter in intelligent modes like Motionlaps.

Currently the GH5 offers the most compatibility, DJI are working on updating camera support all the time and there is a up to date list on the DJI site of officially supported models.


Built in Focus Control

The Patch Antenna For DJI Cendence Remote Controller











Since receiving the DJI Cendence I have seen the question time and time again asking is it worth using the DJI Patch antenna compared to the standard omnidirectional sticks and what benefit does the patch antenna give. Because of this I decided to do some tests to try and show the difference between them and see what was one was actually better to use as well as get some data on how directive the patch is as well.

For more info on the Cendence remote or the Inspire 2 or to order see
DJI Cendence http://click.dji.com/ABwjVqd-Sl9O9-w...0012&pm=custom



A Closer Look at the Patch





As you can see the patch is not just a simple passive antenna, while it has 2 RF connection it also is connected to the CAN port on the Cendence remote, because of this something to note is that the patch antenna also has firmware onboard and its important you update it when you update the remote, this is easily done by connecting the antenna to the remote before you update via DJI Go 4 or the Pilot App.











Looking inside the antenna it’s self you will find there are 2 identical PCB antennas, these are backed by a screening sheet with the logic controller board mounted in the middle. its important to ensure you have the antenna facing the correct direction as this screening sheet at the rear will block all signal from getting through so the antenna should be mounted with the smooth flat face pointing forward

The Mavic Air Waterproof Carry Case From Freewell Gear.


A few weeks ago Freewell sent me some accessories to take a look at and one of them was the Freewell Rugged Carry Case for the Mavic Air. Along side this Freewell have also released a much more substantial case costing $99 for those looking for the ultimate protection for their DJI Mavic Aircraft.





This new case from Freewell is extremely robust and is designed for those looking for total protection.
Made from XEP material its a far more substantial case than the other rugged model and it offers a massive amount of protection for your Mavic Air. It is crush proof and high temperature resistant, protecting the craft from -40˚ C to 98˚ C.
One major selling point is this case is waterproof and being IP67 rated this also effectively means it's dust-proof too protecting your Mavic and accessories from damage from all angles.



Externally


While offering tons of protection this case has been designed to be compact in size and shape. It measures only 330 mm x 285 mm x 145 mm and weights just shy of 2kg.
