In the world of civil aviation, DJI is easily one of the most prominent brands. But they don’t just make drones. Just recently, DJI unveiled two new gimbals and they are the new DJI RS 3 and DJI RS 3 Pro. Along with that, they have also launched a new transmission device named DJI Transmission.
The new DJI RS 3 and RS 3 Pro stabilizers bring significant improvements to the iconic Ronin series. If we talk about the DJI RS 3 then this gimbal now has redesigned axes-locking system. Because of this, the gimbal is now automated. So as soon as a user turns on the gimbal, it rotates and gets ready within seconds so that the user can have it ready in no time. There is also a Bluetooth shutter button which eliminates the need for cables.
The new 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen with full-color support looks stunning and enhances its usability by a big margin. Users do not require a mobile app to connect and the UI is designed in a way that people get the most controls right in front.
There is an all-new battery grip on this gimbal on this device and that is capable of providing up to 12 hours of battery on this one. It has PD fast charging at 18 watts. The great thing is users can charge it simultaneously while using or can charge it separately. In terms of weight, the gimbal weighs at 1.3Kg and can handle 3Kg of payload.
DJI has also launched a Pro version called DJI RS 3 Pro and this one brings more features for creators who demand more. This one has its arms made from one uncut piece of carbon fiber. The technology is pretty much the same as Ronin 2 so now this gimbal is not only more strong, but it is lightweight as well.
DJI has optimized it for a wide range of common professional cameras like Sony FX6, Canon C70, and RED Komodo.
The carbon fiber design of the gimbal allowed them to keep the weight of this one at just 1.5Kgs and it can take a payload of 4.5Kgs. Just like the RS 3, this one also comes with automated axis locks, Bluetooth Shutter Button, 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen.
RS 3 Pro comes with LiDAR focusing technology adopted from Ronin 4D so manual lenses will not have focusing problems with this one.
There are dual RSA/NATO ports and a battery port on the new PS 3 Pro allowing users to connect a wide range of accessories.
DJI is calling it their “first independent wireless video solution”. This one also takes inspiration from Ronin 4D in terms of video transmission. So the new device allows users to control operations like reception, monitoring, control, and recording from a single device. This is great for creators who have a lot of stuff going on at the same time.
The transmission device comes with O3 Pro video transmission technology and can cover an insane 6km/20,000ft on-ground transmission distance. Not only that, but it also provides transmission at 1080p/60fps with a max bitrate of 50Mbps and live audio monitoring at 16-bit 48 kHz which is a Full-HD long-distance audio feed.
The new DJI RS 3 and RS 3 Pro are both now available for purchase via authorized retailers and the official DJI online store. The price for the new DJI RS 3 is USD 549 and the DJI RS 3 Pro is priced at USD 869.
On the other hand, DJI Transmission will be arriving in September this year and the price for it will be USD 2499. These tools can truly help creators unlock new boundaries and create more stunning content.
