- 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.
- 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.

DJI RS 3 Reviews
The best gimbal ever
Smooth and easy to use
We have several larger stabilizers (Steadicam Zephyr and DJI Ronin MX), but this is great for our Sony A7's and nothing beats it for travel gigs...
Let me start by saying that I'm not a professional videographer or photographer. I am a composer of modern classical music, and I've had an interest in videography for a little over ten years now, mostly making videos of people playing my music. My training has come from reading, practicing and learning things on the internet. I've had my DJI RS3 for a couple of weeks now, and, so far, I'm very happy to have it. The RS3 seems sturdy enough. Its screen is easy to understand and to use. The physical mode switch dial is better than a menu-driven system would be. The responsiveness of the front dial, used in conjunction with the focus motor, is truly impressive. It didn't take too much practice to feel competent at balancing the gimbal. DJI's manual and online learning tools are clear and seem complete, and there are abundant helpful online materials about the gimbal. (I've yet to find any material about getting the gimbal out of inverted mode without causing the gimbal to spin wildly out of control.) So far, I haven't used it on a project, but I can tell that it's so different from using a tripod or slider or skater dolly, that it will take some practice to get good results. I have been practicing daily, and I expect that the payoff -the increased variety of possible shots- will be worth the money and the effort. I think it's worth mentioning that one will benefit from doing some research about the camera you choose to put on the RS3 and how the devices will relate to each other. I bought a Sigma Fp, first for its price/performance promise (which promise it has kept in spades!), but also thinking that, among other things, it would, because of its light weight, be a good fit for a gimbal. But because the Sigma has only one Usb C port which is the only conduit for getting the camera's highest quality or for connecting the camera to the RS3, one needs to choose which capability to use. I found that that best solution was to add an Atomos Ninja V to the rig. Although this does add some weight, the availability of a monitor is worth it. The Sigma FP has neither a flip screen nor impressive continuous autofocus, but the focus peaking feature on the Ninja V as well as the impressive focus dial on the RS3 makes for a most usable trio. I don't mean to sound like I'm knocking the Sigma Fp. I'm not. I would buy it again. The images it makes are gorgeous. I would also buy the RS3 again, and I recommend it. But, if you are starting from scratch it would be worth knowing everything you can about how your devices work together and whether they'll accomplish everything you want them to do. If had been decision-making about an entire package, rather than starting with the camera, I might not have chosen the Sigma Fp as the best choice for a gimbal camera. There are two things I would change about the RS3: I would make the briefcase handle so that it could double as a side handle, either by adding a hinge to it or devising the nato connector so that it could be flipped ninety degrees. As it is, I have had to purchase a side handle separately. The other small complaint is that the fitting near the roll axis motor is sticky and not at all easy to adjust as are the tilt and pan fittings. I have given the device 5 stars. If I could, I would rate it 4 and a half.
Don't buy it.
We can see in the app if the gimbal is balanced, so I can say this wasn't the cause of my problem. The roll axis isn't good and it wasn't stabilizing properly. I had to replace the gimbal with my old Crane 2s (unbelievable). I reach DJI's forum to see if my unit was an exception, but other brother said the same thing was happening to his rs3 pro as well. DJI's answer was just repeat everything the manual said - everything I tried. Don't know if this is a firmware problem or something else, but if my Crane 2 is doing better... Don't buy it. Ah, my setup was a simple Xt3 18-55 2.8-4.
Although the Sony A6500 is on the list of compatible cameras, it is not. The camera functions do not work with the DJI USB-C to micro USB wire. The Bluetooth function also doesn't work correctly.
Third time's a charm
I've owned three DJI Ronins and the RS3 is the best so far. Easier to balance, stronger motors, with a battery that lasts all day, it makes dolly shots a breeze to achieve. And I don't have to drag a tripod along for interviews in the field, because it's as steady as a tripod for interviews that last 5-10 min (or more, it's really up to how long your arms can take it). Great piece of gear.
Registration Mandatory, Smartphone App Required
From The DJI RS 3 User Manual v1.2 page 8: DJI RS 3 supports up to five uses without activation. After that, activation is required for further use. Activation is done through a smartphone app you must install that requests your location information and then you must create an account on DJI's website to complete the process. I deeply resented the whole process; I don't think it should be necessary and I don't see why I should be forced to give a company my personal information for the right to use a tool I bought from them. Functionally, the gimbal seems fine as I would expect from the glowing reviews I read prior to purchase, but had I known about the registration nonsense I would have looked at other options on principal.
