Los Angeles, CA—The new DJI RS 3 Mini is a lightweight, handheld travel stabilizer. DJI developed it specifically to support today’s mainstream brands of mirrorless cameras and lenses.
“Since the introduction of DJI’s Ronin series for cinematography in professional environments, DJI has worked on bringing professional-grade technology to an increasing number of content creators,” said Paul Pan, senior product line manager at DJI.
“The DJI RS 3 Mini is a testament to DJI’s core value of bringing innovative stabilization technology to everyone with a love of capturing their moments in a photo or on video. Now, anyone with a mirrorless camera can experience the same industry-leading technology used on film sets and studios across the globe.”
DJI RS 3 Mini Specs
The RS 3 Mini adopts an all-in-one design that is compact and portable. At 1.7 pounds in vertical shooting mode, the stabilizer is around 50% lighter than the RS 3 Pro and 40% lighter than the RS 3.
With a smaller and lighter body, the device continues the stabilization performance of the RS 3 series, helping users to create professional-grade content while traveling. Furthermore, weighing less than 1.8 pounds, the gimbal can carry a weight of up to 4.4 pounds.
With its payload capacity, the RS 3 Mini also supports a range of mainstream mirrorless camera and lens combinations. For example, it can handle the Sony A7S3/24–70mm f/2.8 GM combo; Canon EOS R5/RF24–70mm f/2.8 STM or Fujifilm X-H2S/XF18–55mm f/2.8–4 combo.
Specs also state that its motor ensures that even when the zoom reaches the maximum focal length, the footage captured remains stable, with no need to repeat balancing.
The gimbal features a Bluetooth shutter control and a third-generation stabilization algorithm. It also offers native horizontal and vertical camera mounting; 360º rotational imaging; and a 1.4-inch color touchscreen.
To meet the needs of vertical video creation, the device boasts a dual-layered quick-release plate. When users attach the plate to the vertical arm, they can shoot vertically without additional accessories.
Users can also shoot short video social media content. An upper plate with a new curved placement guide prevents the camera from rotating and loosening.
“Content stability is ensured throughout shooting and professional-level image stabilization is achieved regardless of the user’s experience. When users are shooting around human subjects, the RS 3 Mini achieves smooth camera movements effortlessly. Users don’t need to pay too much attention to footwork and pace, as the RS 3 Mini can follow people steadily and switch between high and low angles for a more diverse range of shots,” DJI added.
Moreover, the wireless Bluetooth shutter function links with most of today’s mirrorless cameras. After the initial linking, the camera is ready automatically as soon as it is turned on. Users can control video recording and photo capture functions via the record button on the gimbal.
Furthermore, the NATO port on the side of the body opens up more shooting options by connecting various accessories. These can include DJI’s briefcase handle, external fill lights or microphones.
Finally, the gimbal’s integrated battery handle provides 10 hours per charge. It also allows charging during use and is fully charged in 2.5 hours.
The DJI RS 3 Mini is now available from authorized retailers and at www.store.dji.com. It has a suggested retail price of $369.
