    Hey, ya'll.

    I am currently looking in to getting a DJI Ronin and had a few questions.

    What are your thoughts on the Ronin?
    Does anyone else already own one?
    Any issues with cameras that I should be aware of?
    Best dealer to buy the Ronin from?

    For what I have seen around , the Ronin is the most cost effective solution. Cheaper and as good as movi and co, and apparently reliable for the price. I feel a bit old to run with it, but if not, I would be really tempted...
    I play this video in loop...!

    That was awesome! Believe me, I'm also very tempted... Also trying to determine where I should purchase it from.

    Yeah we've got one here too. The pipe dolly has been given the flick and the Ronin has been used many times on videos we have made.

    Very impressive bit of kit when used correctly

    Well, my decision for where to purchase just got a lot easier. Someone just posted that Dronefly.com is offering free $200 Visa gift cards if you spend more than $2,500. Looks like today is the day I buy the Ronin! Hopefully the wife doesn't mind :D

    MrDrone27, one of the better places to get the Ronin is from UAV-Outlet.. They offer Almost 24/7 support and actually answer phones when called..

    Hey, man. I went ahead and got it from Dronefly.
    I have spoken with them multiple times, and have had them pick up the phone every time. You should check them out also! I'm extremely pleased with their service. :mrgreen:

    I plan on using a GH4 with it. A friend of mine also has the Red which will be fun to strap on there :p Do you also own a Ronin? What camera do you use?
