GIMBAL SETTINGS FOR DJI RONIN-S

GIMBAL SETTINGS FOR CANON 5D W/CANON TS-E 17MM

  • Pitch: 5.0 for the height adjustment and 4.7 for the camera forward/aft plate - Holding the side bar so that the camera can’t roll or yaw, adjust the height plate until the camera is balanced and stays when the camera is pitched up or down by 45 degrees.
  • Bank 1: 6.7 - This is the lower plate left right adjustment directly below the camera.
  • Bank 2: 4.4 - Adjust the back plate left or right to get the camera to sit level.
  • Yaw: 4.2 - This is the bottom motor and it's plate. To make sure it’s balanced, tip the Ronin S forward and if the camera lens swings towards the low end, then adjust the yaw plate until the camera doesn’t swing when tilting the Ronin-S forward.
  • Cable: Connect MCC-B cable to camera and gimbal.
