The Internet Reacts to DJI Teasing 2 New Gimbals

DJI teases two new gimbals. 

After releasing the Mavic Air 2, DJI switched its focus to its gimbal line announcing the OM 4, a new smartphone stabilizer. A week ago, the company teased what's most likely the Ronin S2 with an announcement date of September 9th. DJI has put that on pause and will be releasing two gimbals come October. The details of this new one are unknown, but it could be a follow-up to the Ronin SC that was released in 2019. But because of that short window, it seems unlikely. 

The Ronin S2 will be the successor to the Ronin S, which No Film School reviewed previously. What we do know about the Ronin S2, based on a leaked image, is it could add a compact version of the angled arm found on Ronin 2. So, maybe it has a higher payload capacity without adding too much weight. That's where we think the second gimbal comes in. DJI could be offering two designs with different payload capacities. Or maybe it's the Ronin 3 and the Ronin S2. The internet had its own funny reactions:

No Film School reached out to DJI about the switch and a spokesperson shared with us the following statement. "At DJI, our goal is always to bring products to the market that inspire creativity and push the industry forward. After careful consideration, we have decided to reschedule the September 9th announcement for a later date in October. We ask you to stay tuned a little longer to see a lot more. The next generation of gimbal technology will now be unveiled next month, so we can present the world's creators with two incredible new options for capturing the world around you."

So, go ahead and update your calendars. What do you think is under the hood? Let us know in the comments below.

Based on the picture looks as though the S2 will use carbon fiber for the arm, which would be quite a bit lighter!
