  • BMCC with Ronin testrun

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking to buy a gimbal for my BMCC and so today I had a little time to test it with the DJI Ronin..Dang that thing is heavy, so I won't be buying it:-)
    Also the case it comes in it too big for simple transport. I know I need a gimbalvest to makes this doable for me, but even then the gimbal should be a little lighter. I read some nice things about Came-TV Argo, so I'll be looking into that next.

    Anyway, here is a short run I made. I only had a few minutes, so did not have much time to tweak the gimbal and the app on the DJI ipad had way to much options to figure it all out quick:-)
    Tnx to my brother Leon for taking the time to pauze the movie he was watching so I had a model to walk in front of the camera for a minute.

    If you wanna give grading the footage yourself a try, I uploaded part of the raw footage to wetransfer. (up till 3th of june 2017): https://we.tl/Bii5Ut1Xld

    Here is the video (setup see below):

    Nice footage. I have alot of experience with the EF model of this combo (I own it), and while I agree its heavy it's been pretty solid for me with good results.

      Hi Jambredz. Tnx for the reply. You use it without a vest? I even had the v-mound clipped to my jeans and still it was to heavy to use for me. I mean, I could go for a minute or 2, but then you really start to feel the weigth.
      I had hoped the BMCC would work with the Ronin-M, but then I have trouble with the SDI cable to my monitor. So I'll see what else there is, cause I need something lighter or a vest:-)

      And I'm sure you got some good results as it's a fine gimbal. It does what it needs to do, that's for sure!

        Yeh I use it without a vest. I don't use a v-mount...just power the cam from the Ronin. What problems do u have with the Ronin-M and Sdi cable?

          Honestly, I almost never load my 2.5k BMCC on my Ronin. Always the pocket and micro's Makes it easier to get through the day. I am trying to repair my varizoom aviator so I can test running the BMCC on a vest though. I'm hoping that makes for a killer combo.

            You are a muscle man Jambredz!:-)
            Maybe tonight I'm the proud owner of a movi m10..I'm going to pick it up in an hour from now..2hr drive better be worth it. I'm def. getting a vest lateron, as I am far from muscle man:-)

              I would love to hear how the BMCC on the Movi compares in terms of your endurance

                I will be able to tell you soon as I just became the proud owner of a movi m10���� now..I've been told it takes a while to balance so tomorrow I'll try to gain all the info there is to figure that one out:-)

                  Ok, so I did my first test, it's so much lighter then the Ronin, it's still heavy, but doable now. I even have my V-mount batt mounted on the gimbal, not even useing a belt setup.
                  That would be better tho, woud save me a whole kg. but I don't have a v-mountplate with beltclip yet.

                  Next week I will take it on a whole day of shooting, so then I'll see if I have to buy a easyrig.

                    Easy-rig is on my 2017 purchase list. Or possibly an M5 if 2nd hand prices keep falling the way they do.

                      Yes they will drop more, I got very lucky (pricewise) with my movi m10 as well. And there is a guy selling his m5 for 2000 euro here, has not been sold after few weeks so I guess it will drop even further. I dont think the M5 will be big enough for your bmcc tho..a pocket or micro will work fine tho. As the m10 is just about big enough for the bmcc. Also M5 would not be able to carry it in terms of camera weight.

                      And as for easyrig. Im looking at the new easyrig mini max. With payload of 2,5 kg to 7kg. As that one is about 1100 euro.
                      It will let you walk arround with the gimbal all day without a swet, but don't expect it to make your shot more smooth then handheld while walking with the gimbal. Your up and down movement might even be wors..as your arms don't correct the up and down movement anymore. So if you get it you will also need that spring mechanism on top to reduce that. I would like to have it tho just to be able to clip it on once it becomes to heavy and then when I need to shoot for a minute..take it off and shoot handheld with the movi.

                        I would only get the M5 for my pocket or micro cameras and just keep my ronin when the extra weight capacity is required. As much as the ronin is a hoss it still has it's place with larger cameras over the m15
