Featured image for DJI releases DJI RS 3 Pro: carbon fibre construction, LiDAR autofocus

DJI has released its latest top of the range camera gimbal, DJI RS 3 Pro, featuring carbon fibre construction, LiDAR-based autofocus, support for manual lenses and more.

For Those Demanding Even More

For users with higher demands, RS 3 Pro is an even more professional version offering a full suite of features as a versatile camera platform.

Arms constructed from one uncut piece of carbon fibre – just like Ronin 2 – makes RS 3 Pro lighter and stronger than the jointed carbon fibre material used on previous stabilisers. They have also been extended to allow for more balancing space for commonly used professional cameras like the Sony FX6, Canon C70, and RED Komodo, and the structure has been optimised to keep its weight at 1.5kg1 (3.3lbs) with an impressive 4.5kg (10lbs) tested payload capability. Naturally, the stabiliser also shares the automated axis locks, Bluetooth Shutter Button, 1.8-inch OLED touchscreen, and gimbal mode switch of RS 3.

Manual Lenses, No Problem

Manual lenses can bring focusing challenges for solo shooters involved in professional projects. RS 3 Pro carries Ronin 4D’s advanced LiDAR focusing technology to create the new DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS), capable of projecting 43,200 ranging points within a 14-meter indoor area. A next-generation focus motor provides torque three times stronger with one-step mounting, enabling autofocus on manual lenses with no need for repetitive calibration. Furthermore, the LiDAR Range Finder carries a DJI-developed chip identical to the one used in Ronin 4D and a built-in 30mm camera, boosting the computing power of ActiveTrack by more than 60 times, creating ActiveTrack Pro. With target identification and tracking more sensitive and accurate than ever before, RS 3 Pro will enable professional cameras to maintain a steady, clear shot in even more dynamic scenarios.

Evolving Product Ecosystem

With its dual RSA/NATO port and battery port, RS 3 Pro can connect to various accessories such as the new Briefcase Handle, Twist Grip Dual Handle, and Tethered Control Handle, opening up a variety of shooting options.

The DJI RS SDK protocol enables third-party manufacturers and individual developers to create customised shooting solutions for RS 3 Pro to build an even richer ecosystem with more developers. Whether filming from a moving vehicle, with a jib or Steadicam, or from a cable cam or slider, RS 3 Pro provides anyone with comprehensive shooting solutions and greater creative possibilities.
