Available Advanced Stabilization

Steadicam

The Steadicam is the industry standard for gimbals, often used for smooth tracking shots that require more mobility than a dolly. The School of Communications’ Steadicam can be reserved through the Gear Room after a training session with a Gear Room staff member.

Ronin-M

DJI’s Ronin M is a motorized gimbal for DSLRs and smaller cinema cameras. The Ronin-M is available to students who are currently enrolled in or have previously completed an Advanced Level course. To reserve the Ronin-M, students must submit the reservation form below after participating in a training workshop. See the workshop schedule here.

Ronin-S

The DJI Ronin-S is more than just a miniaturized version of the larger Ronin gimbal stabilizers; it represents a scalable ecosystem for integrating DSLR and mirrorless cameras into professional-grade workflows. The single-handed form factor lends itself to lighter camera payloads, up to eight pounds. The Ronin-S is available to students who are currently enrolled in or have previously completed an Advanced Level course. Students can reserve the Ronin-S through the Gear Room after participating in a training workshop. See the workshop schedule here.

Easyrig

The Easyrig is a stabilizer in the School of Communications’ arsenal. Consisting of a vest with an attached overhead arm, the rig transfers the weight of larger cameras from the user’s back/shoulders to their hips, resulting in smoother handheld shots and less back pain. The Easyrig is only available to check out with the RED Scarlet-W camera.
