Ronin M motorized gimbal stablizer

I recently added a Ronin motorized gimbal stabilizer to my video gear arsenal. The Ronin smooths out camera movement, and minimizes the need for extra support gear like tripods, sliders and cranes. I expect this piece of gear will get a lot of use on future projects.
