Ready When You Are, with Accessories
The DJI RS 3 Combo includes the redesigned RS 3 gimbal stabilizer, an even lighter and sleeker gimbal than the Ronin RSC 2 at only 2.8 lb and with a payload of up to 6.6 lb. This tiny gimbal is tough enough to support and stabilize a Sony a7S III or Canon R5 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 compact camera kit. The Combo kit includes additional essentials such as an updated Focus motor, a motor rod mount kit with gear strip, a briefcase handle, two multi-camera control cables, and a lens-fastening strap.
Quick Release Plates
With dual-layered quick release plates, mounting a camera onto RS 3 is fast and convenient. There is no need to rebalance the gimbal after swapping out a new battery or memory card.
Compatibility
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
By implementing Dual-Mode Bluetooth, the RS 3 supports wireless shutter control, saving time and effort with every use. After the initial Bluetooth pairing, you can control video and photo shooting by simply pressing the record button on the stabilizer. Previously paired cameras can automatically reconnect after the first use, eliminating the need for a camera control cable.
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.
  • 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 provides 20% enhanced stability over the RSC 2, effortlessly managing low-angle shots, running scenarios, or switching between high and low positions.
Get SuperSmooth Results
When SuperSmooth mode is enabled, RS 3 increases motor torque to further enhance stabilization, delivering stable footage even in fast-moving scenarios or with 100mm-equivalent focal lenses.
1.8" OLED Touchscreen
Compared with the black-and-white screen of RSC 2, RS 3 is equipped with a 1.8" OLED full-color touchscreen with an 80% larger display. It also supports most Ronin app settings, providing intuitive and precise control together with the redesigned user interface.
Monitoring on Smartphone
RS 3 supports the Ronin Image Transmitter (previously known as the Ronin RavenEye Image Transmitter) to transmit 1080p30 HD live feeds directly to a mobile device. The maximum transmission distance is 656 feet, and the end-to-end transmission latency is as low as 60 ms. A smartphone can also be attached to the NATO port on the RS 3 with the phone holder for wireless monitoring.
Integrated Monitoring and Control
Remotely adjust camera exposure directly in the Ronin app, or control the gimbal with the virtual joystick to get an integrated monitoring and control experience. With the Ronin Image Transmitter, a smartphone can be used as a motion controller to remotely control the RS 3 gimbal for more flexible and dynamic camera movements.
Enhanced Battery and Fast Charging
The new RS 3 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.
Intelligent Functions
The camera retains all the intelligent motion functions such as Dolly Zoom, Motionlapse, Track, Time Tunnel, and Panorama.
New Briefcase Handle
The redesigned briefcase handle is foldable for convenient storage and comes with a new ergonomic handle to make it easier and faster to install and switch to Briefcase mode. The built-in cold shoe mount and 1/4"-20 mounting holes can connect to external monitors for shooting assistance, making low-angle camera movements more intuitive.
All-New Focus Motor
The next-generation DJI RS Focus Motor (2022) provides torque three times stronger (up to 1 N·m) and noise is reduced by 50%. This delivers a smoother focusing experience and reduces the effect on audio recording. It also adopts a quick-release structure, allowing it to be assembled easily without any tools for faster use.

I have Raveneye that i bought for Ronin 2 but is incompatible, will it work with the Ronin 3?

Does anyone use this with the Panasonic S1h? Total payload with a cine lens is under the 6.6 lb limit. Just curious if anyone has run into problems with real-world experience on it specifically or if I must get the rs3 pro
Asked by: Jose
The Panasonic S1H is supported on the RS3. However you may be limited in the weight of the lenses you work with. The RS3 Pro would be a better choice when using longer heavy lenses when using the RS3 Pro's Supersmooth mode. DJI compatibility link (RS3) - https://bit.ly/3zKmWdA

Will the focus motor assembly work with a Zoom lens that extends slightly, such as the Leica 10-25?
Asked by: David
It will most likely be able to control the zoom on such a lens. However, doing so is not advised because it may through off the balance of the gimbal.
