            Thank you for the great review. Would you recommend getting the focus motor with this gimbal? I heard it works only with certain linear focus lenses? Do you find this feature useful?

              Really like the review. Let's hope Ronin keeps their promise and allow the 12 fuji users (I'm one of them) to use 100% of the toy.

                    Hi, very good video, thank you ! Do you think man could use it with a camcorder (Sony ax53 for exemple) WITHOUT any cable between the camcorder and the gamble ?

                      I wish The Verge would have another review for smaller mirrorless cameras. His experience with his own camera ruins the review.

                          I checked the compatibility list and Fuji was definitely on the list, but it seems doesn’t work that well 🤔🤔

                                The "jumping" part on the motionlapse option is not a problem related to balancing...I have the Ronin S and I tryed with a 5D mkIII and a GH5 and it does the same. After talking with a bunch of people using it and with DJI....the conclusion is that the motors are cheap and not that great for motionlapse and super slow and smooth pans. For that I recomend Syrp's Genie or Genie Mini. They are made for timelapse/motionlapse work. For the Ronin it's just an option. Is great as a gimbal but awfull for the rest of options that it has. Cheers!

                                            Hey, I'm wondering if anybody knows about a fairly cheap GPS watch that doesn't require a phone to be connected to. If so, please let me know!

                                              bad review unfortunately...
                                              try 16 mm f1.4 or 18-55 and other primes and also use the phone on the handle not on the top! same limitations about bigger zoom lenses on zhiyun and moza at the similar size gimbals. I know because I have zhiyun weebil lab and Ronin sc is far better !...I have also fuji xt3 ' sony a7 iii and sony a6400.I tried all those cameras on Sc .I f you are going to use bigger setups you should try Ronin -s size gimbals.

                                                active track can't be used with the phone on the handle. I wish, but unfortunately it has to be on the top. hope dpi works on that soon

                                                What about other fuji lenses? Is it possible to balance kit lens or 10-24 for example?

                                                You just should calibrate the gimbal with new setup. Ronin SC works fine with Canon 5D Mk IV and heavy lens (about 2.2 kg)

                                                  What really annoyed me was the fact that If he saw so many problems with a Fuji camera, why didn't he try another one? Stop complaning about it man.

                                                    Imagine uploading in a higher resolution than 1080HD when showing sample fottage of a camera.
                                                    Mind blown.

                                                    A tech channel still only uploading in 1080p in 2019...

                                                      Too many rotations shots, 04:28 camera shakes because u didn’t choose the right strength of gimbal. For a big review company, I expected u test it with different cameras.

                                                          This gimbal isn't meant for A7 / EOS R. It's supposed to used with cameras like the M50, XT30, A6000 series. If you have a FF mirrorless more than likely you could afford the bigger Ronin S

                                                            no, it's especially made for the A7III, as you see on their website, its the reference camera for this Gimbal. You need to know how to use a gimbal tho, and many people mess it up, like I see in this review

                                                          the fuji xt2 doesnt looked well balanced. presenter saids its sitting too high (it totally is) and theres a lot of room to adjust the height and lower it.... end point, dont think it was balanced well.
