    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Works fantastically, I now own 3 different Ronin gimbals and like this one the best. The focus wheel works brilliantly on my non-autofocus lenses.

    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.

    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!

    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.
