Description

Ronin stabilizers have come a long way in a very short time. This is especially evident in their design features. An important role in this was played by the introduction of a compact one-handed stabilizer in the lineup, equipped with advanced technologies for the production of DJI film production Ronin-S . This stabilizer was positioned as one of the optimal solutions in terms of quality and price for low-budget projects, small film companies and even amateurs.

Ronin RS3 Pro continues this trend. Its arrival is DJI’s attempt to provide all interested users with access to film production equipment that can be used in a wide range of applications, from a basic gimbal to a full-featured solution for big-budget productions, with the addition of many available accessories.

Even the basic version of the Ronin RS3 Pro allows you to use almost all mirrorless and SLR cameras suitable for cinematography. The new stabilizer has many built-in functions and settings, quickly responds to user commands and has a number of other advantages.

For example, the device is compatible with the LiDAR autofocus system, which will please those users who want to use this compact gimbal as a full-fledged filming system. The Ronin RS3 Pro becomes even more attractive when you connect various compatible accessories such as the RavenEye image transmission system or a focus motor.

And now let’s talk about all this in more detail and in order.

What is the DJI Ronin RS3? 

The DJI Ronin RS3 Pro is the latest addition to the DJI Ronin gimbal series. As with the previous generation, DJI has released two versions: the advanced Pro and the basic RS3. In the future, there will be more about the advanced version of Pro, although, as necessary, we will say a few words about the base model.

Judging by the looks, there are few differences between the RS 2 and the RS 3 Pro. The compact dimensions of the stabilizers remained common. There are a few small design changes that stand out, like the carbon-fibre brackets made specifically to mount professional cameras like the Canon C70 and Sony FX6. Also in the latest model, the display size has become slightly larger to make it easier to navigate the menu and access new functions.

Drive power, payload performance and battery life on a full charge all remain the same as the predecessor model. Only the weight of the new stabilizer was a little more. But this is due to the presence of more modern electronics, which gives the RS3 more power and functionality, and is also a much wider ecosystem.

How is it better than DJI RS2?

RS 3 has an improved stabilization algorithm compared to RS 2, as well as a large OLED touch screen and automatic axis lock, so you can turn it on with one button. The setup is the same as on any camera system with stabilization.

Enabling Supersmooth mode increases engine torque at the expense of battery life, but ensures smooth shooting. Now the level of complexity of shooting and editing does not affect the degree of comfort of the operator and does not greatly affect the speed of preparing the camera for work.

The presence of an application for a mobile phone greatly facilitates the work. The process of installing it and further preparing for shooting using a smartphone has become very simple. However, the mobile phone app is not required to use the basic functions of the gimbal (it is required to activate the device), so some experts have regarded DJI’s move with its RS 3 Pro as an “anti-function”.

Design features and operation of the RS 3

DJI products have always been unique. Its devices – drones, filming systems – are often not created according to generally accepted rules, but such, for example, Phantom, become cult over time. To a certain extent, this can be said about the DJI Ronin RS3. The new stabilizer matches the quality of the products that came before. Particularly impressive are the composite elements on top of the sturdy handle and base.

When comparing the DJI RS 3 to other compact gimbals such as the WeeBill 3, the RS 3 is still heavier, albeit relatively light compared to some of the larger gimbals. But overall, the DJI RS3 Pro is very different from most other stabilizers on the market. Of course, it has accessories that allow for wireless video transmission and control, but it is part of an ecosystem that is based on the DJI RS3.

Professional-level stabilization at an affordable price

One of the important advantages of the RS3 Pro, even at a basic level, is the ability to operate the gimbal with one hand. Another important advantage is that you can take advantage of additional features as needed and depending on your needs. If you have ideas for shooting from a car or other projects, then you can detach the gimbal handle and install it on a car or connect antennas, among other possibilities. In this sense, the DJI RS 3 is the most flexible and expandable gimbal on the market.

The design and construction features of the new stabilizer are the result of the tremendous work done at DJI, because in order to create such a flexible product, all participants in the development of the model, especially electrical engineers, had to work a lot to solve a difficult task. At the same time, it was possible to ensure that the process of setting up and connecting the stabilizer for an ordinary user is not difficult and does not take much time.

After the basic setup of the gimbal and the connection of stabilization, it is ready to go. Later, other functions can be connected, such as RavenEye and a mobile phone, to achieve wireless video transmission, then you can also use the ultra-bright control display, and so on. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail and very rational.

It is also worth noting another important point. It often happens that a device with a lot of functionality is not used one hundred percent. Even experienced operators are often limited to almost half of the available options. And with RS 3 the same situation. But its creators assumed such a development of events and thought out the design of the gimbal so that the user does not feel the “piling up” of functions and controls.

Automatic axle lock mechanism, payload is larger

Automatic axle lock is one of the important advantages of the new stabilizer. Moreover, this function works immediately after the device is turned off, lowered or transferred from one place to another. And when you need to resume work, the axle is also unlocked automatically. Of course, it is possible to bypass this functionality manually, but it is better not to do this unnecessarily. In addition, in practice, you will see for yourself that the automatic lock / unlock is very convenient.

As for the axle itself and carbon fiber brackets, as already noted, DJI engineers decided to make them a little larger. This is a logical step if the gimbal is to be used with some of the new mid-weight professional cameras such as the Komodo, Sony FX6 and Canon EOS C70 with a full size mechanical lens.

The photo below shows a gimbal with a powerful Fujifilm X-H2S system and a Fujinon 18-120mm zoom.

DJI RS 3 Pro Gimbal Overview

For a standard compact gimbal, these cameras are usually heavy. But design changes made it easy to use the same Canon C100 MKII alongside the DJI Ronin RS3 Pro. In general, one of the advantages of the Pro version can be considered that it is able to work with cameras weighing up to 4.5 kg. Of course, for someone, a one-handed suspension in this case may not be very convenient, but this problem can also be solved.

Touch screen and more

This is another feature that will delight many users. Moreover, the RS3 Pro display has become larger. As a result, it’s now much easier to navigate the camera’s menus and settings, as well as connect an HDMI cable via RavenEye to the gimbal for quick live view on a small screen. You can also now connect video transmission to a mobile device. Note that the RavenEye module can be purchased in a special combo kit or separately. But it’s worth it. Plus, it’s not that hard to figure out how it all works.

As with previous Ronins, the main gimbal is just part of the “story”, part of DJI’s entire Ronin ecosystem. It is, of course, good as a stand-alone product, but accessories add even more functionality and features to it. For example, you can use the RS3 Pro with 4D grips, Master Wheels and Force Pro to control the gimbal and focus.

You can also switch the battery grip so that the system can then be connected to other tripods and holders as a Pro-Grade ecosystem. Equipment such as camera cranes, camera rails, overhead cameras and steadicams can also be used with the stabilizer. As a result, the Ronin RS3 Pro becomes an indispensable cinematographic tool that can be used in productions of any size.

Touch screen and its interface.

Less wires and Bluetooth shutter control

As already noted, the weight of the DJI RS3 Pro has increased compared to the RS2. This is due to the introduction of new technologies, the installation of additional modules, including the Bluetooth module, which opens up more opportunities for connection.

For example, you can use this type of wireless connection with some cameras that support Bluetooth. You can connect the Ronin RS3 Pro stabilizer to such a camera in this way. In practice, this, for example, works with a series of Canon cameras, but the list of compatible devices will certainly expand.

Bluetooth and some other “chips” in the RS3 Pro were specially provided to save users’ efforts. Management has become easier and less costly. Creating complex shots has also become much easier, including due to compatibility with wide-angle cameras. It was for this that, as already noted, elongated brackets were created.

In addition to the brackets, the size of the upper base plate has also increased. This made it possible to increase the contact area between the camera and the plate, which was previously requested by users. The larger plate size helps increase friction, preventing cameras from falling when mounted in extreme conditions. In practice, many users have encountered this.

Another step that simplifies the operation of the system is the presence of a physical mode button on the side. With it, you can easily switch from PF and PTF mode to FPV mode with one click without entering the menu system. It is also possible to set the FPV mode to activate the 3D Roll 360, Portrait or Custom functions.

Improved full color touch display and LiDAR focusing

One of the immediately eye-catching features is the new large 1.8 OLED full color screen. It’s about a third larger than the RS2 and makes it easy to switch settings and navigate menus. When RavenEye is connected, you can also stream live video.

The big new addition to the Ronin RS3 is LiDAR focus technology. It can be installed This module is installed on top of the hot shoe of the camera, connected to the DJI Focus Motor (not included) and the RS3 Pro stabilizer. Once connected and calibrated, you can use it to quickly autofocus manual Cine lenses. Because each lens must be calibrated before use, DJI has made sure that up to three preset lens profiles can be saved.

Importantly, along with the LiDAR module, you can take advantage of the new ActiveTrack Pro functionality. It helps to highlight objects on a small screen using a limiting line. The camera then captures them so they don’t disappear from view wherever you move. This functionality is ideal for filming when the operator has to move around objects, take panoramic shots of objects, etc.

Updated Wireless Video Transmission Technologies

The compact image transmission system is almost ideal for many during the shooting process, but DJI has decided to make improvements here, adding professional-level video transmission and monitoring compatibility.

To improve efficiency and noise immunity, the DJI RS3 Pro is equipped with DJI O3 Pro video transmission technology, which is capable of transmitting video signals up to 6 km away. It is fully compatible with the high brightness remote monitor that is known to have appeared with the Ronin 4D. This monitor supports 1080p/60fps live streaming to multiple receivers.

The potential for DJI RS 3 Pro is quite wide, as evidenced by the fact that the device can be used together with a high-brightness remote monitor and external control units. The remote method allows you to install the camera system with a stabilizer on the car or in some other way, so that you can take full control of the gimbal and camera using the monitor and external units. At the same time, advanced functions of the remote monitor provide you with a wide range of creative possibilities and shooting techniques.

Summing up

Of course, this review of the DJI RS3 Pro hardly looks exhaustive, because only a detailed description of individual functions, features of operation and settings, as well as the use of a number of accessories requires a separate article. But in general, we hope you have some idea of ​​the new product, which is intended primarily for professional videographers and allows you to work with cameras, including heavy ones, at a high level. Many innovations in design and functionality will help you get started faster and shoot in a more comfortable environment.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
