DJI RS 3, DJI RS 3 Pro, and DJI Transmission – New Releases

, best known for its , has been expanding its reach in recent years with offerings for filmmakers. The Ronin 4D, the company’s first new cinema camera, was introduced last year. It announced and released two new gimbals, as well as a DJI Transmission wireless system, today, all of which borrow a few neat tricks from the Ronin 4D.

The is a successor to the RSC 2, which DJI released in 2020. It is the smaller of two newly released gimbals designed to get you up and recording as soon as possible. When you turn on the , the new axis locking mechanism automatically releases, allowing you to start filming sooner. It should save you time and eliminate the need to rebalance your arms between shots, especially with the new quick-release mounts.

The RS 3 also includes new shutter button support, which eliminates the need for a camera control cable and allows you to trigger the record button wirelessly. DJI claims a “20 percent improvement in performance over the RSC 2,” which is most noticeable when filming at low angles, using the gimbal, or filming from a moving vehicle. This gimbal, like the RSC 2, supports SuperSmooth mode, which adds extra stabilization when shooting with tighter zoom lenses up to 100mm.

The new gimbal also has a much larger 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen, which should allow you to adjust settings while not connected to the Ronin app. The grip has a physical sliding switch that allows filmmakers to switch between pan follow, pan and tilt follow, and FPV modes.

The new interchangeable battery grip has 12 hours of battery , which is a slight decrease from the RSC 2’s 14 hours. However, 12 hours is still a significant amount of time, and it supports 18W PD fast charging. Congratulations on being able to hold the gimbal for that long.

The RS 3 weighs 2.8 pounds (1.3kg), making it slightly heavier than its predecessor (2.67 pounds or 1.2kg), but it has the same maximum tested payload of 6.6 pounds (3kg).

However, if you believe that 3kg is insufficient for your camera rig, you should consider the DJI . It has a maximum payload capacity of 10 pounds (4.5kg), which is the same as its predecessor, the RS 2, and should be plenty. Despite the fact that the arms of the RS 3 Pro are made from a single uncut piece of carbon fiber, the RS 3 Pro is only slightly heavier than the RS 2, weighing 3.3 pounds (1.5kg).

The RS 3 Pro, like the RS 3, has all of the features listed above, including automated axis lock, Bluetooth shutter control, a 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen, and a physical mode button on the grip. The RS 3 Pro, on the other hand, borrows Ronin 4D’s lidar-focusing . When combined with the improved focus motor, the DJI Lidar Range Finder can convert manual lenses to auto-focus lenses. And, by improving subject detection and tracking, DJI’s proprietary ActiveTrack, now known as ActiveTrack Pro, promises to maintain steady and in-focus shots in more demanding situations.

DJI Transmission, the company’s wireless solution, was the final product announced at the launch event. This will sound familiar if you’re familiar with DJI’s Ronin 4D camera.

It is a transmission technology that allows you to remotely monitor and control your camera, the RS 3 Pro, or both at the same time.

The O3 Pro transmission can send video up to 6km at 1080p 60fps with live audio monitoring. To enable smooth and interference-free transmission channels, the DFS (dynamic frequency selection) band alternates between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz frequencies. Users can, of course, manually select their specific channels on larger sets to avoid conflicts between multiple devices.

The system includes a transmitter that sits on top of your desired device, as well as a receiver in the form of a 7-inch monitor. The 1500-nit bright monitor allows for one transmitter, multiple receivers, and two transitioning modes.

Broadcast mode allows an unlimited number of receivers to monitor production, whereas Control mode allows for monitoring and remote control of devices with only two receivers.

The new gimbals, the and RS 3 Pro, will be available today for $549 and $869, respectively. Both gimbals are also available in a combo bundle with a slew of accessories. The RS 3 Combo comes with an extra handle, a new focus motor, a carrying case, and other goodies. This option will set you back $719.

For $1,098, the RS 3 Pro Combo bundle includes an extended quick-release plate, a phone holder, a new focus motor, a Ronin image transmitter, and other goodies.

DJI Transmission will be available in September of this year for $2,499 USD. Separate purchases of the video transmitter and the High-Bright Remote Monitor will cost $1,699 and $1,099, respectively.
