    I like built quality and the menus system but what I don’t like is it is not easy to install with Sony cameras until this day I didn’t get what I want yet I don’t know what I am going to to do with the gimbal special the reven eye didn’t function well with the Sony cameras I am disappointed.

    Looking at the different specs you really don’t know whether or not to get the combo or not.The differences don’t seem like they are that important – but they are.Here are the two things that make the biggest difference.1.) The raven eye transmitter. Yes that is what you will need to connect your phone to your gimbal as a secondary screen and use active track. For anyone doing interviews or VLogging this is a absolute must.2.) The zoom motor. This has been a life saver and an absolute joy to play with. Using zoom on a stabilized camera or being able to control your focus with the scroll wheel is a life saver. Just look up Dolly Zoom Effect to see how you can use this creatively.And as an added bonus it comes with a carrying case that is a bit bulky but you can use that bulk to hold your audio gear and even some accessories.As for the actual gimbal – its a dream come true! Question as to whether or not to get the RS-2 vs the RSC-2 would come down to the size of the rig you want to put on it. I do find that the RSC-2 is maxed out when I put my Fuji XT-4 with a 10-24 lens, and an audio receiver. Its great if you’re just doing video and not capturing the main audio on your camera – but if you’re like me and trying to capture audio and video to one camera to save on time – the RSC-2 is pretty taxed.

    When you’ve got all the cables, parts etc. that come in the bag (which is great, but Ideally it would be awesome if someone could come up with a carry case that allows you to have it fully setup, lock the arms and pack up ready for quick use.Words of warning, unsurprisingly for something this expensive. This is not a toy.If you’ve already owned something like an Osmo gimbal for the phone, it is a massive step up in terms of what it can do and as such, needs a little more time and consideration to get it working well for you.However, spend some time watching Youtube users (there are many excellent pro level videographers who have reviewed it) instead of trying to decipher the translated from Chinese manuals.Getting it all put together, balanced and ready for use is just a process, plus, think about a soldier taking apart and putting together a rifle over and over again, they reason they do it is to be able to do it without looking and would recommend spending some time doing the same with this, know every part and connection so when you are out in the field, you can be ready to go in minutes.Another thing to think about is the sheer weight of the thing, with a metal cinema lens on it, it is HEAVY. So next on the wishlist is a vest steadicam (Again, there are Youtubes out there of guys who have built them for far less than the pro options) otherwise, get cracking with some weights on forearm curls and apply manual handling techniques in use to protect your lower back.Lastly, if you are using a manual focus (as a lot of folks will be) lens. Get the 3D follow focus (which is NOT included in the pro combo). Although using the wheel or onscreen (with the Raveneye system) is doable, in a practical situation where you’re thinking about the shot, talent, framing etc., it’s a lot to think about at the same time. There’s a reason it’s a separate person on a film set.

    There are two versions of the ‘RSC 2’ available on the market: Either the unit by itself or the ‘Pro-Combo’; before you jump to make a purchase, I would highly recommend having a good think whether any of the extras included in the pro combo would be beneficial in the future, I say this because if you change your mind later on it will work out MORE expensive in the long term to buy the additional accessories separately.The main additional contents included with the Pro Combo is as follows:• Carry case.• Mechanical Focus wheel.• RavenEye Image Transmission System.There are also optional accessories from brands such as ‘SmallRig’ that might make handling the gimbal in certain situations more comfortable and easier to deal with. I purchased the ‘SmallRig 3028’ which is a handle extension, this helps distribute the weight so I don’t get fatigued as quickly.One of my favourite features this gimbal has is the ability to fold which gives it a smaller footprint and easier to store (sometimes I store it in my photography bag and it wouldn’t fit if it didn’t fold!).If you have never used a gimbal like this before, the set-up process can be quite daunting. I did feel that DJI didn’t provide the best tutorial to getting it set-up; I was grateful to find other users producing their own video guides online which I found clearer and easier to follow. When calibrating your camera, do remember to remove the lens cap as the slight weight difference can affect the weight distribution.Each time you change lenses or camera you will have to redo the calibration process to ensure optimal stabilization. As I always use the same camera and lens, as long as I don’t change the pan/tilt/roll adjustments, I can pretty much jump straight back into shooting the next time I use it.Despite the incredible stabilization this gimbal has, there is definitely a learning curve when it comes to using. There are plenty of videos available online that will give you tips and tricks to using it in various ways. Once you get the knack of using it, you can achieve some impressive results.It may vary depending on your use, payload and what accessories you use with the gimbal, though I personally found that the battery life is very good (I’m not currently using it with other powered accessories). It is advertised as 14 hours on a full charge which is very impressive and based on my use, seems quite accurate.With the positives aside it is important to note that the battery in in-built and to my knowledge, not replaceable. This does mean you can’t get spare batteries just in case you get caught off-guard or should something go wrong. This could also be seen as a bit of “planned obsolescence” on DJI’s behalf which is quite disappointing.Everything aside though, I’m very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend.✔ Pros:✓ Robust construction.✓ Foldable.✓ Quite lightweight (on it’s own).✓ Fantastic stabilization.✓ Great battery life.⸗ Neutral:- Official instructions/guides could be clearer.✖ Cons:✘ Battery is not replaceable.

    From day one the front dial on my gimbal never worked. I kind of just assumed there was some compatibility issue with the Fuji XT-4 which come to find out, there isn’t and everyone else’s works just fine. Upon further investigation into the front dial I realized not even the pan, tilt, or roll functions work on top of all the camera control things such as ISO, etc. and the focus motor can’t be controlled either. The front dial is completely dead. It does absolutely nothing. Everything else on the gimbal works perfectly fine and I would like to give it a good review but after dealing with their despicable low life customer service people, I can’t give this anything better than 1 star. I spent the better part of 2 hours filming a long and detailed video for them showing the issues, all my settings, how the cables were connected, the whole 9 yards. I gave them screen recordings of my phone to show all the settings etc within the app. Apparently they didn’t watch it or were busy texting while doing so because now after giving me the run around multiple times and asking for things I already clearly provided, they’re trying to avoid honoring their warranty. They are treating me like I am stupid. I am simply using their cables and have everything hooked up the way it’s instructed to be and the same way literally every other video of someone with this gimbal has theirs hooked up. It’s gotten to the point where I have threatened them with legal action if they do not honor their warranty in a timely manner and have a shipping label provided for the return and have a working gimbal back to me within 7 business days. I tried to be extremely polite and nice to them during the first set of emails, during the video and all the way up until today when I saw the final enraging email asking me to labor another hour or more for them. By time this is over they’re going to owe me what the gimbal is worth times a thousand at the very least on top of being legitimately billed at whatever rate I see fit for the time they’ve cost me. I am very hesitant to ever purchase another DJI product again after this nonsense. I bought a 739 dollar item from them and they owe me a working one, simple as that. Because I’m so disgusted by the DJI name at this point, I’m tempted to return my likely terrible quality drone I just bought. I’ve spent close to 2 grand with this company and they act like I’m somehow a pain for them when they haven’t even provided a working item.UPDATE – after some questionable customer service initially they did a great job making the situation right. they provided me a shipping label to send it back in and were very prompt about taking care of it resulting in a full replacement of the other since the whole control panel was deemed defective. The replacement seems to be working great and everything functions perfectly. they also gave me a code to get a free micro sd card on their site which i got and they also put another one in the return package with the new gimbal so ultimately they gave me 60 dollars of micro sd cards and replaced the gimbal under warranty and had it back to me in just over a week which was great. the 60 dollars of micro sd cards was a nice touch to remedy the situation but is still far short of what my time is worth for the hassle. regardless, i’m happy to have a working gimbal for the first time since purchasing it and upped it to 4 stars. the one star reduction is for the original customer service issue and the raven eye being not all that great. it has a delay and doesn’t really run that smooth. the camera doesn’t follow very smoothly regardless of settings. you can adjust it to be better no doubt but it still leaves a lot to be desired. for what it is though and comparing the cost to say a high quality product like the jibone and the 3 axis gimbal head that runs legit pro level, it’s decent since that set up is about 3 grand vs the roughly 800 with taxes for the ronin set up. all in all i do recommend the gimbal. it has a ton of useful features and for regular gimbal work it runs super smooth and gives you incredible looking footage so for the most part it’s a great product.

    Okie dokie, this thing is a beast. I used it with my canon 90D and 70-105 lens. The camera and lens combo is heavy, and attached to this gymbal the whole set up is very heavy, but the gymbal itself isn’t that heavy at all- but you know you are holding something extremly well made.I now have guns like “the Rock” after carrying this around for a day with my camera and lens attached, but with a smaller camera/lens combo you would have a hard time even noticing the weight of it.The gymbal is very stable and very easy to use. The whole balancing act is somewhat tough when following the directions given, but I found several youtube videos that demonstrate how to balance everything. After watching those, the instructions made better sense. Once balanced, this is sooooo smooth.The app is very handy, but DJI wants WAY too much info and the user agreements pretty much say DJI has access to your whole life and that of your offspring and distance releatives as well. Read the agreements very carefully before committing to using the app.However, I decided to use the app and the features available do give you quite a bit of extra controls to use.The tripod/handle is such a good design. I set my camera/gymbal up on a gym floor for an indoor drumline event and was able to control the gymbal from the stands to track the movement of the group- so awesome and sooooo stable. On the app they give you the ability to move the camera with a virtual joystick, which is a really great design but you have to be in close proximity to see the camera screen unless you spend extra for their attachment that allows you to view on another device.Battery life: excellent. I shot all day and didn’t have to charge the battery. I had to on my camera, but not on the gymbal.Build quality: This thing is built like a tank, but isn’t overly heavy. It comes with a base plate that attaches to the camera and mine came with a taller base plate along with a lens support which is pretty handy. It also came with thumb screws that have a little handle so you don’t need a screwdriver to tighten the baseplates. When you pick it up, you know you are holding something that is extremly well made.The screen on the handle is very handy, but using the menu system took just a bit of practice to get use to.The packaging: it is packaged pretty well, but when you unfold the gymbal it it is rather tight and at first I wasn’t sure I unfolded it correctly. After watching a few vids on the gymbal, one said it was suppose to be hard to unfold so after that I was fine. Just kind of unnerving trying to unfold such an expensive gymbal for the first time.The directions- just eh. I found better info on youtube to set it up.The handle has a joy stick so you can easily control the camera. Only real issue I had with it was that Canon has a flip out screen that you can adjust up and down, only when using the gymbal I found that I couldn’t fold the screen out and adjust it so it had to fit stationary on the back of the camera which made for a few issues when shooting outside because of lighting and glare on the screen.Overall, this is an excellent gymbal and every shot was smooth as can be.Only thing I wish it had was a carying case.I highly recommend it, even if you have a heaver camera and lens combo.

    Raven eye range is terrible cuts out constantly which also prevent you from force mobile mode they only use UPS to deliver so only Mon-Fri 9-5 delivery that you must be present for. Returning it but for the reasons mentioned above they wont pock it up!

    Great gimbal! Arrived just in time before a wedding I was recording. Battery life was more than enough to last a 10 hour day! Does take a while to charge depending on what type of charger you plug into. But has nothing to do with performance!

    This is not compatible with the D850 and 24-70mm lens as stated in the compatibility list at dji.
    This must have been assumed based on weight. Unfortunately, the setup cannot be balanced adequately as there is not enough space to move the camera backwards before it collides with the gimbal arm.
    It could possibly be achieved with counter weights however this would then eat into the remainder of its carrying capacity. Once the raven eye, focus motor and leads are also attached it would be pretty much maxed out and I doubt it would provide the estimated battery life and this would also shorten the overall life of the motors I’d imagine.
    Build quality is good. If I was using a mirrorless system it would be great. Dji produce quality stuff, I have 2 drones and the pocket 2.
    Just waiting for my return to ve processed and I’ll order the larger rs2.

    Great for getting those steady shots but I would love it dji would have built it together with the tilta float or something like it. This thing gets heavy. Make sure you get your workout on them arms cuz you will feel the burn. I have it together with my red komodo and sheesh, it gets heavy

    The media could not be loaded.  Awesome gimbal! I just started masters degree program for film school and this is so good to have for my shoots. It takes a few minutes to balance, but once you’re up and running it’s smooth sailing. I would advise watching a view short YouTube tutorial videos to spin you up speed if you’re not familiar with basic gimbal operation just to cut the learning curve, which is not much. I can honestly say this is one of the best purchases I’ve made. You get what you pay for, and that would be one of the best gimbal on the market in my opinion.

    Here’s how you can avoid the buyers remorse that tends to follow large purchases such as the RS2:- Is it within your budget? (If you can’t buy it twice, you can’t afford it…and that’s okay. Save up until you can).- will you put the needed hours into learning how to use professional grade equipment?If you can answer “yes” to both of these questions with little/no hesitation, then you are in the right space.I purchased the combo and almost a year later, I still haven’t taken all of those components out of the pouch as it takes time to really learn the tools that the rs2 combo puts in the hands of the user.That said, let’s get to the specifics:The unit I ordered came with a neat pouch that houses all the components in a compact, padded, and zippered environment. Parts are mostly easy to find and maintain as long as you put stuff back. Not a lot of room to store additional things though.The most important skill to gain is how to load your gear unto the gimbal and properly balance it. The muscle memory that this will produce will go a long way. I took notes on the markings for the pan, roll and tilt for all my gear combinations (DSLR + lens combo as well as a mirrorless body + lens).Personally, I went for the RS2 over the rsc2 because my DSLR was the Canon 1DX. This gimbal handled that body with a 24-70 lens with no problem at all. The motors are more than capable of handling the load capacity on the spec sheet however you will damage your product if you skimp on balancing properly for the sake of “time/speed”. Practice and put in the time developing a feel for a correctly balanced before a paid gig so when it’s “game time” you are able to pivot without making costly + avoidable errors. Battery life is awesome and easy to charge the unit via usb-c.Cons:It was hard to find things not to like but I found two (both are conditional).- if you are switching multiple bodies onto this unit, you’ll probably want to stick with the quick release plate that comes with it (or purchase more as needed). I have a whole system of manfroto qr plates which make switching between my gear darn near seamless. Although you can use the manfroto qr plates on this unit, I found certain configurations problematic. Sticking with the included qr plate fixed the issue but added the step of swapping qr plates when done with the gimbal.- If you have a heavier set up, you might find that the rubber grip on the battery chassis starts to buckle a bit. You can easily move that back into place but I legit was pushing the gear to it’s extremes at that point to discover this issue. Also, it’s not fun holding that much gear up-right for extended periods and therefore holding the unit in briefcase mode might be a slightly better alternative.Pro-tip: when balancing a zoom lens on a gimbal, zoom to about halfway through the focal range and begin balancing the gimbal from there. This helps keep the unit stable even if you were to zoom in/out without needing to rebalance everything.The gimbal itself is quite capable. You are not paying for this product to do the work FOR you. You’ve actually got to put time into learning how to use a pro-rig. That said, doing so is well worth the quality of video you will begin to produce and the time saved in post with the increased amount of usable footage. There is a lot to like about this gimbal but it comes at the cost of time. If you are looking for something with a steeper learning curve and is more “run and gun” try the Osmo line (I have the Osmo 4)If you try to cheat the learning curve, you will most likely be upset that you spent so much money on this product. Take a deep breath and lean into the discomfort. You’ll thank me and yourself later. I also believe that the knowledge from the bumps and bruises of the RS2 learning curve are transferable. The skills you learn here will help you with any other similar rig.The improvements made on this unit that are found on the rs3 were non-issues for me. The benefit for a new user would just be a lower price point. For now, I’m happy sticking with my rs2 as it is still hitting homeruns.

    Very awesome bit of kit. I am a videographer and had been wanting to get an RS2 for a number of months. Once I had saved enough I dived in. Getting up and running was a bit frustrating, and I had a few teething problems whilst getting used to using the kit, but with a bit of practice it is now my used kit and I have bought quite a lot of accessories for it.

    Great gimbal! Arrived just in time before a wedding I was recording. Battery life was more than enough to last a 10 hour day! Does take a while to charge depending on what type of charger you plug into. But has nothing to do with performance!
