The lat­est DJI PRO prod­ucts give cre­ators bold new tools that are faster to set up, sim­pler to oper­ate, con­nect seam­less­ly and trans­mit for miles.

DJI RS 3, DJI RS 3 Pro and DJI Trans­mis­sion take into account feed­back from pro­fes­sion­al users and offer next-gen­er­a­tion high­ly effi­cient, reli­able and effi­cient video tools.

DJI is the world leader in civil­ian drones and cre­ative cam­eras. Today intro­duces three new tools that will enable film­mak­ers and the con­tent cre­ator com­mu­ni­ty to bring their ideas to life eas­i­ly, seam­less­ly and intu­itive­ly. The DJI RS 3 and DJI RS 3 Pro sta­bi­liz­ers bring sig­nif­i­cant improve­ments to the clas­sic and rugged Ronin series, while DJI Trans­mis­sion, DJI’s first inde­pen­dent wire­less video solu­tion, inte­grates recep­tion, mon­i­tor­ing, con­trol and record­ing in one device. This new gen­er­a­tion of the Ronin ecosys­tem allows cre­ators to focus on what’s in front of their cam­era, sim­pli­fy­ing every­thing about it.

The Ronin prod­uct line is a key part of DJI. It sup­ports con­tent cre­ators from pas­sion­ate hob­by­ists to pro­fes­sion­als around the world. The launch of Ronin 4D last Octo­ber cement­ed DJI’s pres­ence in the world of pro­fes­sion­al film­mak­ing, giv­ing film­mak­ers a whole new way to cre­ate. Whether it’s the new auto­mat­ed axle lock­ing sys­tem, the 3rd gen­er­a­tion RS sta­bi­liza­tion algo­rithm that improves pro­duc­tiv­i­ty by 20%, or one-touch cal­i­bra­tion, RS 3 and RS 3 Pro are opti­mized for user effi­cien­cy and reli­a­bil­i­ty.

“The needs and require­ments of the con­tent com­mu­ni­ty are extreme­ly impor­tant to us,” said Paul Peng, Senior Prod­uct Line Man­ag­er at DJI. “Since the intro­duc­tion of the first Ronin in 2014, we have received con­stant feed­back from indus­try pro­fes­sion­als on how we can improve our prod­ucts to meet their grow­ing needs. By imple­ment­ing this feed­back, we have opti­mized gim­bal design, sta­bi­liza­tion and con­trol to cre­ate next-gen­er­a­tion high­ly effi­cient and reli­able sta­bi­liz­ers designed for unpar­al­leled per­for­mance. In addi­tion, we are not lim­it­ed to sta­bi­liza­tion. We under­stand the impor­tance of video trans­mis­sion and the var­i­ous pain points that one has to deal with on large and com­plex sites. Whether deal­ing with range, image lag, or sig­nal loss, DJI’s new trans­mis­sion solves these issues and deliv­ers an incred­i­ble ground trans­mis­sion range of 20,000 feet.”

DJI RS 3: ready when you’re ready


Every second counts

DJI RS 3 includes a num­ber of new fea­tures to get film­mak­ers up and run­ning as quick­ly as pos­si­ble. The upgrad­ed axle lock­ing sys­tem means that the process is now auto­mat­ed. By sim­ply turn­ing on the hang­er, the auto­mat­ic axle blocks the release and unfold­ing of the hang­er, allow­ing the oper­a­tor to get start­ed in sec­onds. A sin­gle press of the pow­er but­ton puts the device into sleep mode, which makes it much faster to turn on the device, assem­ble it, and move it. There is also no need for re-bal­anc­ing. Quick-release plates, posi­tion mem­o­ry func­tion — all this ensures a quick instal­la­tion with a per­fect pay­load bal­ance. In addi­tion, the addi­tion of a Blue­tooth shut­ter but­ton sup­ports auto­mat­ic con­nec­tion with­out the need to con­nect a cam­era con­trol cable.

Light body, heavy stabilization

Weigh­ing in at just under 1.3kg (2.8lbs), the RS 3 can be eas­i­ly held in one hand, and the test­ed load capac­i­ty of just under 3kg (6.6lbs) is more than enough to sup­port most major devices.

Thanks to the 3rd gen­er­a­tion RS sta­bi­liza­tion algo­rithm, you can see a 20% improve­ment in per­for­mance com­pared to RSC 2, mak­ing it eas­i­er to work when shoot­ing at low angles, on the run, or even when shoot­ing from a mov­ing car. For lens­es up to 100mm, Super­Smooth fur­ther enhances sta­bi­liza­tion.

One Touch Settings

In addi­tion to improved sta­bil­i­ty, the RS 3 is also eas­i­er to set up with an all-new 1.8″ full col­or OLED touch­screen that has an 80% larg­er sur­face area than the pre­vi­ous RSC 2. Most gim­bal set­tings can be done direct­ly with­out con­nect­ing to a mobile app , and the user inter­face and inter­face log­ic have been redesigned so that all con­trol rights are at your fin­ger­tips. This includes a phys­i­cal gim­bal mode switch that oper­a­tors can move to instant­ly switch between pan, tilt and FPV modes.

All day battery

With an all-new bat­tery grip pro­vid­ing up to 12 hours of bat­tery life, users can focus on the action with­out wor­ry­ing about pow­er. The RS 3 fea­tures a quick release design and sup­ports 18W PD fast charg­ing. The bat­tery can be charged inde­pen­dent­ly or even dur­ing use, allow­ing users to work non-stop.

DJI RS 3 Pro: Nothing is out of reach


For those who demand even more

For more demand­ing users, RS 3 Pro is an even more pro­fes­sion­al ver­sion, offer­ing a full range of fea­tures as a ver­sa­tile cam­era plat­form.
Made from a sin­gle, uncut piece of car­bon fiber, like the Ronin 2, the arms make the RS 3 Pro lighter and stronger than the car­bon fiber com­pos­ite used in pre­vi­ous gim­bals. They have also been extend­ed to pro­vide more room to bal­ance com­mon­ly used pro­fes­sion­al cam­eras such as the Sony FX6, Canon C70 and RED Komo­do, and the struc­ture has been opti­mized to keep its weight at 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs) with impres­sive 4.5 kg. (10 pounds) proven pay­load. Nat­u­ral­ly, the gim­bal also uses auto-axis lock, a Blue­tooth shut­ter but­ton, a 1.8‑inch OLED touch­screen, and an RS 3 gim­bal mode switch.

Manual lenses, no problem

Man­u­al lens­es can cre­ate focus­ing prob­lems for solo pho­tog­ra­phers involved in pro­fes­sion­al projects. The RS 3 Pro uses Ronin 4D’s advanced LiDAR focus­ing tech­nol­o­gy to cre­ate a new DJI LiDAR Rangefind­er (RS) capa­ble of pro­ject­ing 43,200 range points with­in a 14m indoor area. The next gen­er­a­tion focus motor deliv­ers three times the torque in a one-step set­up, allow­ing aut­o­fo­cus on man­u­al lens­es with­out the need for recal­i­bra­tion. In addi­tion, the LiDAR is equipped with a DJI-designed chip iden­ti­cal to that used in the Ronin 4D and a built-in 30mm cam­era, increas­ing Active­Track­’s pro­cess­ing pow­er by more than 60 times, cre­at­ing Active­Track Pro. With tar­get iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and track­ing more sen­si­tive and accu­rate than ever before, the RS 3 Pro will enable pro­fes­sion­al cam­eras to cap­ture a steady and sharp shot in even more dynam­ic sce­nar­ios.

Developing ecosystem

With its dual RSA/NATO port and bat­tery port, the RS 3 Pro can con­nect to a vari­ety of acces­sories such as the new brief­case han­dle, dual Twist Grip and teth­ered grip, open­ing up mul­ti­ple shoot­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties.

The DJI RS SDK pro­to­col allows third par­ties and indi­vid­ual devel­op­ers to cre­ate cus­tomized shoot­ing solu­tions for the RS 3 Pro to cre­ate an even rich­er ecosys­tem with more devel­op­ers. Whether you’re shoot­ing from a mov­ing vehi­cle, with a boom or steadicam, with a cable cam­era or a slid­er, the RS 3 Pro offers com­plete shoot­ing solu­tions and more cre­ative options.

DJI Powertrain: Vision Beyond Boundaries


Cover the Distance with DJI Transmission

DJI Trans­mis­sion is DJI’s first inde­pen­dent wire­less video com­mu­ni­ca­tion solu­tion. Based on the advanced Ronin 4D video trans­mis­sion tech­nol­o­gy, this sys­tem com­bines recep­tion, mon­i­tor­ing, con­trol and record­ing to take your film­ing expe­ri­ence to a whole new lev­el.

O3 Pro’s trans­mis­sion tech­nol­o­gy enables the trans­mis­sion sys­tem to pro­vide an incred­i­ble 20,000-foot ground trans­mis­sion range with ultra-low end-to-end laten­cy, a sig­nif­i­cant upgrade over tra­di­tion­al Wi-Fi trans­mis­sion. Video is streamed at 1080p/60fps and pro­vides live audio mon­i­tor­ing at 16bit 48kHz, offer­ing teams excel­lent visu­al and audio remote mon­i­tor­ing.

To cope with the demands of com­plex sig­nal­ing and struc­tur­al envi­ron­ments, the DFS band has been added to the tra­di­tion­al 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz set­tings, offer­ing up to 23 chan­nel options that pro­vide teams with more com­pat­i­ble and inter­fer­ence-free trans­mis­sion chan­nels. The built-in sweep­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly scans the cur­rent elec­tro­mag­net­ic envi­ron­ment for the best wire­less chan­nel, instant­ly switch­ing chan­nels as need­ed. If nec­es­sary, users can also man­u­al­ly select the appro­pri­ate chan­nel to avoid inter­fer­ence between devices.

Wireless monitoring

The DJI 7″ High Bright­ness Remote Mon­i­tor with 1500 nits includes a built-in receiv­er, elim­i­nat­ing the need for video cables to the mon­i­tor. The device sup­ports one trans­mit­ter with mul­ti­ple receivers, as well as two trans­mis­sion modes to meet dif­fer­ent trans­mis­sion needs. In con­trol mode, mon­i­tor­ing can be car­ried out from two receivers at the same time, while the gim­bal and cam­era can also be con­trolled remote­ly. For a large team with dif­fer­ent depart­ments such as light­ing, art depart­ment and props, Broad­cast Mode can also be enabled on top of Con­trol Mode, allow­ing for an unlim­it­ed num­ber of receivers and tak­ing shoot­ing effi­cien­cy to the next lev­el.

On large sets like real­i­ty shows, DJI Trans­mis­sion can work simul­ta­ne­ous­ly with ten or more trans­mit­ters send­ing sig­nals to trans­mit to ten devices, cre­at­ing a com­plete­ly syn­chro­nized expe­ri­ence that is hard to achieve with tra­di­tion­al trans­mis­sion.

Everything’s under control

DJI Trans­mis­sion is not just a pow­er­ful video trans­fer tool; it is also a com­pre­hen­sive con­trol sys­tem. When used with the RS 3 Pro, it can work as a gim­bal and cam­era con­troller, unlock­ing more fea­tures and ful­ly inte­grat­ing the Ronin ground ecosys­tem.

The high bright­ness remote mon­i­tor has a built-in gyro sen­sor that acts as a stand­alone motion con­troller for the RS 3 Pro. And when com­bined with the Ronin 4D grips, the RS 3 Pro gim­bal oper­a­tor can con­trol the gim­bal, focus, expo­sure, and start/stop record­ing with both hands.
In addi­tion to simul­ta­ne­ous access to tem­po­rary videos, the high-bright­ness remote mon­i­tor allows 1080p/60fps H.264 footage to be inde­pen­dent­ly record­ed and played back, mak­ing it easy to edit sam­ple footage on set.

An exten­sion of the Ronin ecosys­tem, DJI Trans­mis­sion works seam­less­ly with the DJI Mas­ter Wheel and Force Pro, giv­ing oper­a­tors a vari­ety of ways to con­trol cam­era move­ment to suit the demands of the frame.

Apple ProRes 4444 XQ Codec, Zenmuse X9 Extension Cable & L‑Mount Alliance

DJI PRO con­tin­ues to work with indus­try pro­fes­sion­als to improve our prod­ucts to meet their grow­ing needs. Start­ing this August, Ronin 4D will sup­port the Apple ProRes 4444 XQ codec, which is the high­est qual­i­ty ver­sion of Apple ProRes for 4:4:4:4 image sources.

For users, we also intro­duce the Zen­muse X9 exten­sion cable. With this add-on, the Zen­muse X9 gim­bal cam­era can be used sep­a­rate­ly from the Ronin 4D body, help­ing film­mak­ers nav­i­gate more com­plex and var­ied scenes while reduc­ing the weight they have to car­ry by about 80%, allow­ing for more ver­sa­tile and flex­i­ble shoot­ing.

As of today, DJI is offi­cial­ly a mem­ber of the L‑Mount Alliance and has part­nered with Leica to intro­duce the exclu­sive Zen­muse X9 L‑Mount, allow­ing Ronin 4D users to mount Leica, Pana­son­ic and Sig­ma L‑Mount lens­es on their cam­eras.
