  • by

It’s always a thrilling working day when we hear about DJI new products coming out. The market leader in stabilisation have paved the way for quite a while in terms of market share and innovating. Let’s take a look at what the newest models of gimbals, such as including the DJI RS 3 & RS 3 Pro can offer.

The brand new DJI RS 3 and RS 3 Pro Gimbals provide “landmark enhancements to the traditional and solid Ronin series’ as per DJI’s official press announcement. They also have the RS 3 Pro, the most expensive of the two new gimbals, is able to use the Ronin 4D’s advancing LiDAR focusing technology which is now integrated into an innovative device known as the DJI LiDAR Range Finder.

Both DJI RS 3 along with the RS 3 Pro can also make use of ‘DJI Transmission’ DJI’s very first wireless solution that allows customers of both these two models RS 3 and RS 3 Pro to integrate reception and monitoring, as well as control and recording on a single device. DJI states that it has an operating range of up to 3.78 miles and that’s quite a lot!

Like as with Ronin 4D, DJI is creating an ecosystem for the RS range of gimbals that will offer users tools that will simplify and enhance workflows. Both gimbals come with a brand modern automated axis lock system and a 3rd-Gen RS stabilisation system which claims to boost the performance by 20% as well as one-tap calibration.

The DJI RS3 Pro is most likely the one that users will be attracted to, including usand is being touted as the more professional of both and comes with a wider array of features, a greater capacity for payload, and having the capability of using the LiDAR range Finder. Its arms RS 3 Pro are made from a single piece of carbon fibre, similar to those of the DJI Ronin 2. It makes the RS 3 Pro lighter and more durable than the jointed carbon fibre used in previous stabilizers. The arms have been extended to give greater balance which allows you to use cameras like that of Sony FX6, Canon C70 as well as RED Komodo. It weighs only 1.5 kg , yet it’s capable of handling a fair payload of up toapproximately 4.5kg.

The new gimbal comes with automatic axis locks, Bluetooth Shutter Button, 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen, and the same gimbal-mode switches that are found with the RS 3.

One of the best features of the brand new DJI RS 3 Pro is that it is able to utilize the brand new DJI LiDAR Range Finder [RS], capable of projecting 43200 ranging points in an indoor space of 14 meters, but it’s not available with the. It will cost more, and includes the following features:

1. LiDAR Range Finder [RS]x
Multi-Camera Control Cable [USB-C, 30 cm] x 1
LiDAR Control Cable [USB C, 30cm] x 1

Its DJI LiDAR range Finder [RS] lets users autofocus manually using lenses without needing to perform repetitive calibration. It also has a built-in 30mm camera. LiDAR Range Finder comes with the same DJI-developed chip as the one for Ronin 4D and a built-in 30mm camera. It allows users to utilize ActiveTrack Pro which claims to increase the capabilities of ActiveTrack by over 60 times! It has the ability to identify and track targets that is claimed to be more accurate and sensitive as never before.

A new axes-locking mechanism has been designed, which means that the process has been automated. When you turn the gimbal on, the automatic axis locks will unlock and unroll the gimbal. Pressing the power button for the first time will put the device in sleep mode, making turning to the device as well as stowing and relocatingit much easier. It also eliminates the requirement for balancing repeatedly with the ability to store position information using quick-release plates that allow quick mounting, with an ideal balance of load. Additionally, the addition of the Bluetooth Shutter Button allows for an automatic connection, without the need to connect to a controller cable to the camera.

DJI’s RS SDK protocol allows third-party makers and developers to design custom solution for shooting with users of the RS 3 Pro. When shooting from a vehicle, using a jib or Steadicam, or using an e-cam or slider RS 3 Pro supplies anyone with complete shooting solutions and plenty of options to how to make use of the latest Gimbal.

There’s a brand new 1.8-inch OLED full-color touchscreen, and the majority of gimbal setups are done without requiring the mobile application. Its UI and interface has been revamped to facilitate access to them. The gimbal also has a physical mode switch that users can slide to change the pan-follow, tilt follow and tilt , as well as FPV modes. A brand new battery grip provides the user up to 12-hour battery lifespan. Both the RS 3 Pro and RS 3 both come with the quick-release mechanism that can support PD rapid charging of 18 Watts. The battery can be charged separately or even in the course of usage and allows users to work without having to stop.


JI’s 7-inch, 1500-nit Bright Remote Monitor has an integrated receiver that eliminates the requirement for video cables to be connected to the monitor. It supports one transmitter that has multiple receivers as well having two modes of transmission. With Control, the monitoring can be conducted by two receivers at the simultaneously, and the camera and gimbal may be operated remotely. For larger groups Broadcast mode is activated on top of Control mode. This will permit an unlimited number of receivers to be utilized. For larger systems, DJI Transmission can work simultaneously using ten and more transmitters.

This DJI Transmission system is compatible in conjunction with any camera, can also function as a full controller. When used using RS 3 Pro, it is able to function as a camera and gimbal controller, allowing for additional functions, and fully integrating with the base-based Ronin ecosystem. It’s pretty cool.

The High-Bright Remote monitor has built-in gyroscopic sensors that functions as a standalone motion-controller that works with RS 3 Pro. When combined with Ronin 4-D hand Grips the user of the RS 3 Pro stabiliser can control the gimbal, focus, and exposure and also start and stop recording using both hands and also have access to time codes for video, and the High-Bright Remote Monitor allows for independent recording and replay with 1080 p/60 fps H.264 footage.
