DJI RS3 Gimbal: Top 5 Features

DJI has delivered again with the new DJI RS3 gimbal series, an innovative new camera stabiliser system built to deliver industry-leading performance and functionality. Tossing up whether to invest in the new DJI RS3 gimbal? Here are our five favourite reasons to pick one up today.

The new DJI RS3 gimbal and accessories are packed with user-friendly features designed to help you take your videography to the next level. Whether you’re on a professional film set or just love making videos to share on social media, here are five fantastic RS3 features that you’re bound to love.

Ultra-Efficient Design

We all know how stressful it can be to get prepped and ready to shoot when you’re on a busy set with others waiting around for you to get ready and we all hate that feeling. That’s why the DJI RS3 is designed with efficiency in mind.

The RS3 features new automated axis locks that lock and unlock with the power button, allowing you to get started in mere seconds. When you’re done filming, a simple tap of the power button puts the axes into sleep mode, folding down to make transportation quick and easy.

The DJI RS3 also adds to the efficiency with wireless shutter control, allowing users to pair their camera with the DJI RS3 just once before automatically connecting via Bluetooth for all future uses. And of course, we can’t forget the addition of an instant mode switching toggle that allows you to quickly switch between Pan, Pan and Tilt or FPV operating modes.

It’s Smooth… SuperSmooth

Powered by the third-generation DJI RS stabilisation algorithm, the DJI RS3 is the smoothest RS gimbal to date, delivering a 20% increase in stability compared to the already industry-leading stability of the previous generation Ronin gimbals.

But that’s not all, DJI RS3 takes things to the next level with SuperSmooth mode, a new stabilisation algorithm that can be triggered to deliver more gimbal motor torque resulting in even greater stabilisation. This mode is perfect when capturing close-up images using narrower focal length lenses.

1.8” OLED Touchscreen

Users loved the convenience and accessibility of the 1” LCD touchscreen display introduced on the previous-generation DJI RS2 gimbal, which is exactly why it’s back! Not only has DJI brought back a touchscreen on the new RS3, it's now bigger and better than before. The new RS3 sports a bigger, 1.8” OLED touchscreen that maximises the space available on the Ronin gimbal. This new colour touchscreen makes accessing your Ronin gimbal controls and setting easier than ever, with intuitive touch and gesture controls that can be accessed whilst you operate. With 1.8” of screen real estate, this improved touchscreen menu is accessible even when you’re operating with just a single hand.
