More Power, Smaller Gimbal
The DJI RS3 Pro Gimbal Stabilizer has been redesigned to be sleeker and more powerful than the Ronin RS 2 gimbal, with its carbon fiber body weighing only 3.3 lb and a payload of up to 10 lb. This tiny gimbal is tough enough to support and stabilize midsize cameras such as the Sony FX6 or Canon C70 with a 24-70mm zoom lens attached. With a larger full-color OLED display, a new fine-tuning knob, and greater stability, the RS 3 can become an essential part of your professional camera kit.
Quick Release Plates
The new Extended Lower Quick Release Plate ensures more stable camera mounting and is convenient for installing lens support for secure settings.
For a full list of compatible cameras, please see the most current compatibility information on the DJI website.
Automated Axis Locks
When the gimbal is powered off, you can press and hold the power button, and the three axes unlock while the gimbal expands automatically, allowing you to start working in just two seconds. Press the power button once, and the axes automatically lock and enter sleep mode, making a move or storage significantly more efficient.
Wireless Shutter Control
Equipped with Dual-Mode Bluetooth technology, the RS 3 Pro is able to achieve efficient and reliable wireless shutter control. Previously paired cameras can be automatically reconnected, saving you a ton of time with every use.
Integrated Controls
  • With a newly added fine-tuning knob on the tilt axis, the camera can slide forward or backward with millimeter-grade precision adjustments to achieve accurate balancing more easily when changing the lens.
  • With Teflon-coated components for lower friction resistance, RS 3 Pro can be balanced more smoothly, even when mounting heavy cameras.
  • By simply sliding the new gimbal mode switch, you can alternate between Pan follow, Pan and Tilt follow, and FPV modes. The FPV mode selection is also customizable to 3D Roll 360, Portrait, or Custom, allowing you to adjust your equipment and get started as fast as possible.
  • Rotating the front dial allows you to control zoom or focus. It can also be customized to control the camera's shutter, aperture, ISO, or gimbal movements, making it exceptionally convenient for single-handed operation.
Third-Gen RS Stabilization Algorithm
Empowered by a next-generation stabilization algorithm, the RS 3 Pro provides 20% enhanced stability over the RS 2, effortlessly managing low-angle shots, running scenarios, or switching between high and low positions.
Get SuperSmooth Results
When SuperSmooth mode is enabled, the RS 3 Pro increases motor torque to further enhance stabilization, delivering stable footage even in fast-moving scenarios or with 100mm-equivalent focal lenses.
ActiveTrack Pro
Tracking on the Ronin series has never been more accurate or responsive. The next-generation ActiveTrack Pro can directly read images from the camera built into the LiDAR Range Finder, with no need for the Ronin Image Transmitter. When using ActiveTrack Pro, you can directly monitor or frame the subject on the RS 3 Pro's OLED touchscreen.
Large 1.8" OLED Touchscreen
The built-in 1.8" OLED full-color touchscreen provides a 28% larger display compared to RS 2, making it incredibly convenient for setting parameters, checking shooting status, and framing your tracked subjects. With the redesigned user interface, every setting is more intuitive and precise. The OLED screen also offers higher brightness than the LCD screen of RS 2 for better outdoor viewing with lower power consumption.
Carbon Fiber Construction
The RS 3 Pro arms are constructed from layered sheets of uncut carbon fiber, just like the Ronin 2. This makes it lighter and stronger than the jointed carbon fiber material used on RS 2, increasing stiffness and a lower weight to cope with even more demanding shooting environments.
LiDAR Compatibility
To make focusing easier for handheld shooting, Ronin 4D's LiDAR focusing technology is applied to RS 3 Pro. The new optional LiDAR Range Finder (RS) can project 43,200 ranging points within a 14-meter area.
Remote Control
The High-Bright Remote Monitor can be used with Ronin 4D Hand Grips, DJI Master Wheels, or DJI Force Pro to control the gimbal and focus precisely. It is also equipped with a built-in gyroscopic sensor that can turn the remote monitor into a standalone motion controller for RS 3 Pro without additional accessories to achieve more complex camera movements from a moving vehicle or with a jib.
Wireless Camera Control
When RS 3 Pro is mounted onto carriers like a jib, cable cam, or vehicle suction cup, Mirror Control mode unlocks seamless wireless control from anywhere on set. This mode allows direct control of the core menu operations for Sony mirrorless cameras via the remote monitor, all without having to detach your camera.
Enhanced Battery and Fast Charging
The new RS 3 Pro battery grip features a cartridge design, making it easier to swap batteries and smaller for storage compared with RSC 2. It can even be charged separately from the gimbal. The new battery grip provides an extended runtime of up to 12 hours, enough for continuous shooting all day. It supports 18W PD fast charging with a charge time of just 2.5 hours. It can even be used while charging to keep RS 3 powered almost indefinitely.
Extensive Ports and Accessories
With dual RSA/NATO ports and a battery port, RS 3 Pro can be connected to various accessories such as the Twist Grip Dual Handle, Tethered Control Handle, and the new DJI Briefcase Handle to flexibly meet a variety of shooting requirements.
DJI RS SDK is a developer protocol provided by DJI for developers and third-party hardware manufacturers to equip DJI RS 3 Pro with more features for extensive scenarios.

DJI RS 3 Pro Reviews

Publicized features do not exist

According to the Compatibility Tables published by DJI for this gimbal, you should be able to control the ISO, aperture, and shutter on Canon's R5C through the gimbal's front wheel. That's false. This publicized feature was the main reason I updated to the RS3 Pro from the RS2 Pro. The only thing the camera control cable allows you to do is start and stop recording...and that was possible with the RS2. Also, the camera freezes periodically when using the gimbal and you are required to remove the camera from the gimbal, remove the camera's battery, and re-start the camera. This is noted in the compatibility table, where it states you need to make sure the camera recording indicator is green before recording again otherwise the camera will freeze... I have been extremely careful in this regard but the camera still freezes. It did so twice on a job yesterday.

Hands Down the Best Small Gimbal on the Market!

This thing is like magic, BUT

By Patrick

This thing is like magic, BUT it isn't. You still need skills to make the magic happen. There IS a learning curve. You'll need to learn a lot of menus and gimbal related terminology, and you'll need to learn how to move with it... or you won't get good, smooth results. Also, and this isn't a knock on the product at all, but you'll need to be in decent physical condition to use it with anything heavier than an iPhone or a Sony ZV-1. Get ready to start doing some yoga and stretches again. If you don't have the time to put into the learning process, don't buy it. That said, this is one of the finest pieces of production technology I've ever held in my hand. It's truly impressive. Despite it's light weight it feels premium and super sturdy. It pairs easily with smart phones and cameras. It delivers on what it promises. The only real knock against that I have so far is the case and the packaging that it comes in. The box it comes in is really flimsy and was beaten up really bad when I got it, which didn't turn out to be a problem since it comes in a very sturdy semi-hard case. So, wait, didn't I say that I had a problem with the case? Yep. It IS very sturdy, and reasonably well padded on the inside, but it isn't well organized at all, IMO, and it's not really big enough for everything that comes in it. I can barely zip the thing shut. Not cool. I would have preferred a lower price and no case at all over what they provided. I'm guying a 3rd party case so that I feel like it's well protected and easy to find everything when putting it all together and putting it away.

I was trying to use this gimbal for professional work, but it failed. I was much better off with the previous model which was much more efficient. This version is a joke. I am very disappointed.

Small but solid updates

At first glance it doesn't seem like it's a necessary successor to the RS2. But it actually fixes some of the problems of the RS2 and it's a lot faster. Definitely worth the price difference.

Exactly as advertised and more

This is a piece of gear that will completely change the way I work. DJI's tutorials are easy to understand and I felt comfortable getting into hands-on tests with it right away. It is very intuitive, and I am walking into my first shoot with complete confidence. The technology is top-notch and really works.

Heavy and wishedbluetooth worked with more cameras.

You're gonna need some stuff to trick the kit out. Which I could run it off an alternate power souce like the T-800 could when the T-1000 stabbed him in the chest in that metal smelting place. But it will hold an AnnieB 90 battery and an s1h and a monitor and not even struggle. I wish you could save camera configs and layouts. Solid build and rugged. Aside from the power issue, I give it 4 stars.

Same as before...just better.

Do you have to recalibrate after zooming with a lens that has an external zoom, such as the rf 70-200 f2.8?
Asked by: Nathan
We don't really recommend using telephoto lense like a 70-200mm on a gimbal, as they tend to be heavy and very tricky to operate with. Generally wide angle lenses work the best, but to answer your question, yes, when zooming with a lens the weight of the lens will probably shift, which can cause balance issues, so it would be wise to recalibrate the DJI RS 3 Pro Gimbal Stabilizer after zooming in or out.
