New DJI RS 3, RS 3 Pro and Transmission
DJI has unveiled three new tools for video makers using cinema and mirrorless cameras. The DJI RS 3 and RS 3 Pro gimbals are the latest development in their Ronin gimbal stabilizer series, while the DJI Transmission is its very first wireless video monitoring system. All three products build on its Ronin 4D camera, introduced last year.
The RS 3
The RS 3 and RS3 Combo, weighs in at 1.3 kg and can hold an up to 3 kg payload. Notably, its redesigned axis-locking system allows users to get up and running right away. By powering on the device, the axis locks automatically release and unfold the gimbal.
With every detail, it delivers a flexible and efficient shooting experience to solo creators and independent crews. Light and sleek, it provides professional stabilization and efficient control for more creative freedom and endless possibilities.
The RS 3 Pro
The DJI RS 3 Pro and RS 3 Pro Combo‘s arms were constructed on this upgrade from the RS 3 with professionals using the Sony FX6, Canon C70, and RED Komodo cameras in mind. Overall, it weighs 1.5 kg and can hold a payload up to 4.5 kg. Like the RS 3, it also has automated axis locks, a Bluetooth Shutter Button, 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen and gimbal mode switch.
Because working with Manual lenses can be a challenge, the RS 3 Pro features the same advanced LiDAR focusing technology found on the Ronin 4D and builds upon the concept with the brand new DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS). It can project 43,200 ranging points within a 14-meter indoor area.
A next-generation focus motor was developed to provide torque 3X stronger with one-step mounting. This enables auto-focus on manual lenses and eliminates any need for repetitive calibration. The LiDAR Range Finder boasts a DJI-developed chip identical to the one found in the Ronin 4D and a built-in 30mm camera – actively boosting the computing power of ActiveTrack by 60X and thus creating ActiveTrack Pro.
Expanding on the powerful features of the Ronin series, DJI RS 3 Pro and DJI RS 3 Pro Combo is an advanced, comprehensive camera expansion platform that empowers videographers and provides coordinated shooting solutions for professional crews. With DJI RS 3 Pro, nothing is out of reach.
The DJI transmission is DJI’s first independent wireless video transmitter/monitor/controller. A 7″, 1,500-nit High-Bright Remote Monitor also has an integrated receiver, so there is no need to attach video cables.
O3 Pro technology, found on DJI’s Mavic 3 series, transmits video at 1080p/60p and gives this new remote an up to 20,000-foot on-the-ground transmission range, promising end-to-end ultra-low latency. A DFS band has been added on top of its dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz settings for 23 channel options.
DJI Transmission can work on large and complex filming sets by simultaneously connecting with ten or more transmitters to send signals to ten devices. When used with the RS 3 Pro, it can work as both a gimbal and camera controller.
