DJI, a well-known drone manufacturer, has recently announced new gimbals for cinematographers under its RS 3 series. So, let’s walk through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the DJI RS 3, and RS 3 Pro in Nepal.
DJI RS 3, RS 3 Pro Overview:
The RS 3 series gimbals are built on the company’s Ronin 4D camera, which was released last year. Both use a third-generation RS stabilization system that offers a 20% boost in performance, making difficult shots and angles simpler to execute.
DJI RS 3
The RS 3 is the smaller of the two newly released gimbals and is the successor to the RSC 2 from 2020. It weighs 1.3 kg and can carry up to 3 kg of payload, making it ideal for quick-response shots.
This is complemented by a newly built axis-locking technology that automatically releases and unfolds the gimbal when the device is turned on. It saves videographers time by eliminating the need to rebalance the arms between takes. It also comes with a Bluetooth shutter button to start recording wirelessly.
The SuperSmooth mode, on the other hand, adds extra stabilization when filming with up to 100mm of zoom lenses. Compared to its predecessor, the RS 3 also has a bigger 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen; allowing you to make necessary settings without the need to access its compatible app.

In addition, there’s a physical gimbal mode switch that makes toggling between FPV modes, pan follow, pan, and tilt follow comparatively easier. It is fed by a newly designed battery grip that delivers up to 12 hours of battery life; and is replaceable as necessary.
DJI RS 3 Pro
While sharing all of the features mentioned above including the 1.8-inch display, axis-lock technology, and more, the RS 3 Pro improves on the vanilla RS 3 in a few areas. It’s designed for individuals who have a bigger camera rig since it can accommodate up to 4.5kg of payload while only weighing 1.5kg.
Furthermore, it leverages the Ronin 4D’s LiDAR focusing technology to make working with manual lenses a bit easier. When paired with the improved focus motor, it is capable of enabling auto-focus on manual lenses. Similarly, DJI’s proprietary solutions, like as ActiveTrack Pro, keep the shots stable and in focus in more difficult settings by improving subject detection and tracking.
