The DJI Ronin is a very cost effective 3-axis stabilized gimbal that can handlea payload of 16 lbs. Despite its price under $3000 the RONIN comes shipped with a wireless remote transmitter, a very sturdy (if overly so) carrying case and a 4+ hour battery pack with charger. This video covers the basics of balancing the tilt and roll axis. I will be creating a complete balancing tutorial which will include the pan balance as well in the near future.

My full review of the RONIN will be coming in a couple of weeks, after I have had enough time to use it in the field.
