CineMilled are a popular accessories manufacturer when it comes to handheld gimbal stabilizers. A lot of gimbal operators know the brand from their clever accessories such as the extension arms for the original DJI Ronin for example, which allows for greater clearance when balancing cameras such as the Sony FS700, FS7 and C300 Mark II. Earlier in 2017, CineMilled released their “All Terrain Shoes” for the Freefly Movi Pro and DJI Ronin, and now they are back with a new universal mount for the DJI Ronin 2.
The latest crop of “big boy” gimbals such as the DJI Ronin 2, can support massive payloads with cine cameras such as the ALEXA Mini and cine zoom lenses, making them an indispensable part of almost any shoot nowadays. Such gimbal stabilizers are getting used in a variety of creative ways and very often used in conjunction with cars and tripods.
Hence, why CineMilled are now calling for gimbal ops to “…unleash your Ronin2 with a true universal mount”. The new CineMilled Universal Mount for Ronin 2 can be mounted to just about anything and anywhere, whether it be a cable cam, a car mount, or a heavy-duty tripod. It is also compatible with their Mitchell threaded collar and castle nut, Mitchell washer and knob, Steadicam Armpost adaptor and the CineMilled PRO Ring system!

All the threaded holes down the centre line of the mount are spaced 1-inch on centre which is the industry standard drip and cheese plate spacing. Users have access to a multitude of standard threaded holes (1/4-20″ and 3/8-16″) all over the mount including a few non-threaded positions.
Factory “Safety locking pin” system is also included and works just like DJI intended and provides some safety until you latch down and secure the dovetail. The Universal Mount can be also used to it to mount directly onto a Steadicam sled to enable Steadicam 360 mode on the DJI Ronin 2.
