DJI RS 3 Pro is available in both standalone and combo versions.

The standalone version is more than enough to meet basic shooting needs, while the combo includes additional accessories like the Focus Motor (2022) and Ronin Image Transmitter for more professional creation.

To get an advanced focusing and video transmission experience, the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) and DJI Transmission are options you can’t miss.

Let’s start with the unboxing of the DJI RS 3 Pro standalone version.


Unboxing Standalone DJI RS 3 Pro:

Enough for Your Essential Creative Needs

The DJI RS 3 Pro standalone version can meet the basic needs of commercial filming.

Pro-Grade Design: Extended Carbon Fiber Axis Arms & Automated Axis Locks

RS 3 Pro uses extended carbon fiber axis arms to allow more balancing space for professional cameras, making it a perfect fit for cameras like the Sony FX6 or Canon C70 with 24-70mm F2.8 lenses. 

DJI RS 3 Pro Payload

Extended arms do not result in an increased gimbal weight. The optimized structural design of RS 3 Pro plus a carbon fiber design ensure that its weight remains the same as RS 2 at just 1.5 kg/3.3 lbs, while its load capacity is a robust 4.5 kg/10 lbs, delivering powerful support in a lightweight body. The axis arms are constructed from high-stiffness layered sheets of uncut carbon fiber that have undergone tens of thousands of vehicle mount tests in the lab, allowing them to cope with incredibly demanding shooting environments.

DJI RS 3 Pro Automatic Axis Lock Design 2

With the innovative automated axis locks, when the gimbal is powered off, simply press and hold the power button, and the three axes unlock and expand automatically, allowing you to start shooting within seconds without the need for manual operation. During use, to lock the gimbal temporarily, press the power button once, and the axes automatically lock and enter sleep mode. Press the button once again to wake the gimbal and resume active status. This makes scene transitions and storage significantly more efficient.

Pro-Grade Control: Wireless Bluetooth Shutter & Full–Color OLED Touchscreen

Controlling camera shutter using a shutter cable can be a hassle. The cable can easily become lost and takes up a USB port on the camera when in use. Equipped with Dual-Mode Bluetooth technology, RS 3 Pro is able to achieve efficient and reliable wireless shutter control. [1] A previously paired camera will even automatically reconnect, saving you time with every ensuing use.

A large built-in 1.8-inch OLED full-color touchscreen comes with a redesigned user interface. Every setting is more intuitive and precise.

Pro-Grade Stabilization: 3rd-Gen RS Stabilization Algorithm

DJI RS 3 Pro Stabilization

RS 3 Pro is empowered by the third generation of RS stabilization algorithms. Laboratory sampling data shows RS 3 Pro provides a 20% increase in stability over RS 2. It also supports SuperSmooth mode, delivering stable footage even in fast-moving scenarios or when using 100mm-equivalent focal length lenses.

Pro-Grade Ecosystem: Multi-Scenario Solutions

DJI RS 3 Pro DJI RS Briefcase Handle

With dual RSA/NATO ports and a battery port, RS 3 Pro can be connected to various accessories such as the new DJI Briefcase Handle, Twist Grip Dual Handle, and Tethered Control Handle to flexibly meet a variety of shooting requirements.

With DJI RS SDK protocol, third-party manufacturers and individual developers can now create customized solutions for RS 3 Pro. Whether it’s filming from a moving vehicle, with a jib or Steadicam, or from a cable cam or slider, RS 3 Pro provides you with comprehensive shooting solutions and greater creative possibilities.


Unboxing DJI RS 3 Pro Combo: Upgraded for the Pros

Compared to the standalone version, the RS 3 Pro Combo includes additional accessories like the Focus Motor (2022), Ronin Image Transmitter, phone holder, and Lower Quick-Release Plate (Extended).

Pro-Grade Focusing: All-New Focus Motor (2022)

DJI RS 3 Pro Focus Motor(2022)

The next-generation DJI RS Focus Motor (2022) provides torque three times stronger (up to 1 N·m) and reduces audible noise by 50%. This delivers a smoother focusing experience and reduces the effects on audio recording. It also adopts a quick-release structure, allowing it to be assembled easily without any tools for faster use.

Pro-Grade Transmission: Ronin Image Transmitter

DJI RS 3 Pro Ronin Image Transmitter

The RS 3 Pro Combo includes the Ronin Image Transmitter to transmit 1080p/30fps HD live feeds directly to a mobile device. The maximum transmission distance is 200 meters and the end-to-end transmission latency is as low as 60 ms.

You can remotely adjust camera parameters directly in the Ronin app, or get a live camera view on your smartphone while controlling the gimbal through Force Mobile with increased responsiveness and low latency.


DJI RS 3 Pro Combo + Expansion Accessories: Complete Functionality

To get an even more professional focusing, monitoring, and remote control experience, you can purchase the following accessories on top of your DJI RS 3 Pro Combo.

Pro-Grade Focusing: DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS)

DJI RS 3 Pro LiADAR Range Finder(RS)

The DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) uses Ronin 4D’s acclaimed LiDAR focusing technology. Compared with conventional focusing technology, the LiDAR focusing system does not need to rely on the surface texture of the subject. This is especially useful in low-light environments or complicated scenarios with multiple subjects and results in exceptionally stable focus.

The new LiDAR Range Finder (RS) can project 43,200 ranging points within a 14-meter distance. [2] It also features a built-in camera with an equivalent focal length of 30 mm and a wide FOV of 70°, catering to the focusing needs of most scenarios.

It supports both Wide Mode and Spot Mode. In Wide Mode, the range finder automatically detects the subject and follows focus. In Spot Mode, users can manually frame or tap the subject to focus.

The next-generation ActiveTrack Pro can directly read images from the camera built into the LiDAR Range Finder, and can identify up to five human subjects at once by face, head, and body, [3] and follow one of them, even when the subjects are moving fast or at a distance.

Pro-Grade Transmission: DJI Transmission

DJI RS 3 Pro DJI Transmission

DJI Transmission evolves from the established DJI aerial video transmission technology, delivering an integrated solution that combines a video receiver, monitor, controller, and recorder. DJI Transmission incorporates O3 Pro video transmission technology, which offers an incredible 6km/20,000ft [4]  on-ground transmission distance. It also supports transmission at 1080p/60fps with a max bitrate of 50Mbps as well as live audio monitoring at 16-bit 48 kHz, providing crews on large sets with an excellent remote visual and audio monitoring experience.

DJI Transmission also supports automatic frequency hopping between 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz, and DFS bands, providing crews with an impressively stable and interference-free remote monitoring experience.

RS 3 Pro can pair with the all-new DJI Transmission to offer a customized shooting solution. The DJI Video Transmitter can be powered directly by RS 3 Pro and mounts conveniently on the bottom via the cold shoe without the need for an additional battery, reducing the burden for handheld setup.

The DJI High-Bright Remote Monitor supports live feeds with audio and one transmitter with multiple receivers. In Control mode, two receivers can be used at the same time to collaboratively control RS 3 Pro’s gimbal, focus, and camera parameters for an integrated reception, monitoring, and control experience.

*DJI Transmission will be available from September 2022
