DJI Ronin SC Hire

So another product has been announced by DJI, which will mean another wave of enthusiasm for the handheld gimbal stabilizers. This time it’s the DJI Ronin SC. Also known as the shrunk down version of the DJI Ronin S. But why another one? Well, the Ronin S, although a good unit wasn’t quite small enough for some users. It’s longer body wasn’t all that easy to pack down as compared to say, the Zhiyun Crane. That is a one hand gimbal stabilizer that could be packed down easily into a backpack or camera bag. The Ronin S though, was still a tad to long in the shaft and that I believe lost them a bit in the market for small stabilizers. But fear not DJI fans, you can now sell off what ever small handheld unit you’ve had and upgrade to the Ronin SC. But what do you need to know about it? Why should you go crazy for this item. Well here are some details on the unit.

With a lightweight design and superior stabilization, Ronin-SC is a 3-axis stabilizer for mirrorless cameras, allowing users to create professional footage with ease. Ronin-SC is built for mirrorless cameras, while Ronin-S is a professional handheld stabilizer designed for large and heavy cameras such as DSLRs and larger mirrorless cameras. Compared to Ronin-S, Ronin-SC is lighter, easier to carry, and more flexible when moving quickly while filming.

The optimal payload for this unit as tested by DJI, performs the best when mounted with a payload of 2.0 kg or less. The Ronin-SC can be used up to 11 hours when the battery is fully charged and the gimbal is well balanced.

You can check out the compatibility list for the DJI Ronin SC here.

So the question you are really asking, is when can I hire the DJI Ronin SC in London? The answer is soon hopefully. I’m sure the rental market will be inundated with these units as the DJI Ronin series and other gimbal systems such as Zhiyun have been so popular within the hire community. Stay tuned for more info.

Media Parents and Alias Hire

On Tuesday, 15th March Alias Hire partnered with Media Parents for a fun and informative Camera Workshop evening at Endemol Shine in West London. A fantastic turn out for the tech catch up where we showed off the new and popular cameras on the block including the Sony PXW FS7 and the Canon C300 mkii. MD Danny Dawson led the session with a technical but light overview of the FS7 and C300 mkii, pointing out the pros and cons of shooting with these cameras. The audience participation was great with questions from the floor and when the talk was finished we invited all to come and get hands on with the cameras and ask any further questions with Danny or our other staff members at the evening including Mark, Lawrie and Jon.

We met a lot of great people at the event and the feedback was fantastic. Many had not yet been up close with these cameras so to learn more and be able to play with the menu systems was invaluable for those wanting to progress in a technical industry where the technology is changing so rapidly. As with our current client base, we are more than happy for those wanting to spend a bit more time with kit that we own to come by one of our offices and spend some time with our technical staff. For those wanting to learn even more about specific cameras, kit or roles in the industry, our training department Alias Academy are constantly running courses that may be exactly what you are looking for. You can learn more about our training courses at www.aliasacademy.co.uk

This was our third event with Media Parents and every one of them has been a great evening. We would recommend you check Media Parents out, http://www.mediaparents.co.uk/

We very much expect that there will be many more evenings to come involving Alias and Media parents and we hope to see you at one in the future. In the meantime, email us at info@aliashire.co.uk or call us on 020 7436 3060 if you would like to book a time to come by, say hello and get a quick introduction to a particular piece of kit.
