For some time now, the Zhiyun Weebill Lab has been my favorite gimbal. The main reason for this is because it's tiny in comparison to many other gimbals. I can comfortably fit it in a messenger bag, and traveling with it is so easy. However, DJI has definitely caught my attention with their new Ronin-SC.
In a recent video from Kinotika, Dave Maze compares the two gimbals to determine which one is the better option. The Weebill is definitely the smaller gimbal of the two, and honestly, this is such a useful thing for me. I absolutely hate shooting with the huge gimbals, and for much of my filming needs, I try and use the smallest and lightest setup possible. Having said that, the new DJI Ronin-SC has really caught my attention. I'm genuinely thinking about selling my Weebill for the Ronin even though it is slightly larger and heavier. The main reason is because of the footage and how smooth it is in comparison to the Weebill. The Weebill is unfortunately just not as stable as many other gimbals I've tried. Plenty of footage that I've taken has turned out with lots of jitters and odd shakes, and those tend to be the most difficult to smooth out in post. I think I'm probably going to sell my Weebill in order to buy the Ronin, because ultimately, the footage is what's most important, and the Weebill doesn't always deliver.
