Cinemilled has released a new pan lock accessory for the DJI Ronin 2. You might be wondering why you would want to lock off an axis for a 3-axis gimbal but it is necessary when using a gimbal in a few specific situations like when mounted on a Steadicam or when you want to do fast action movements while still maintaining a level horizon.
The DJI Ronin 2 does feature a built-in motor lock but as shown in the video, still has a significant amount of play. The pan lock mounts onto the pan arm and secures around the battery stub or to the battery module.
When you are doing fast action with Ronin 2, locking the pan removes any delay or lag from the motors so you have an instant response from your hand movement to the gimbal.
The pan locks are available now for USD $59 for the version to clamp onto the battery block and USD $99 for the version to clamp around the battery module
Have you had any experience mounting a gimbal onto a Steadicam for a hybrid set up or using gimbals in a fast-paced setup?
