DJI is expanding its Ronin gimbal family with a new, compact model designed for vlogging shots with mirrorless system cameras on the go, and especially designed for portrait filming as well. Weighing just 795g in vertical shooting mode, today&s RS 3 Mini is about half the weight of the RS 3 Pro, but like the latter, it features the 3rd generation stabilization algorithm. We&ve already had a chance to shoot with this new gimbal, here&s our (hands-on test of the RS 3 Mini) with detailed information.
DJI RS 3 Mini
The RS 3 Mini&s maximum payload is about 2 kg, so it supports a number of popular camera setups, such as the Sony A7S3 + 24-70mm F2.8 GM, Canon EOS R5 + RF24-70mm F2.8 STM or Fuji X-H2S + XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 (see full compatibility list). A powerful motor is said to ensure that the captured footage remains stable even when the zoom reaches its maximum focal length, eliminating the need for rebalancing.
To meet the demands of vertical video creation prevalent on social media today, the RS 3 Mini features newly designed dual-layer quick-release plates. By attaching the quick-release plate to the vertical arm, vertical shooting can be achieved without additional accessories, and the gimbal&s rotation angle is not limited compared to the traditional vertical mode. RS 3 Mini also features a top plate with a new curved placement guide that prevents the camera from rotating and coming loose.
Via Bluetooth, the gimbal can be paired with most popular mirrorless cameras. After the initial connection, the camera is automatically ready to use as soon as it is turned on, and video and photo capture functions can be controlled directly via the record button on the gimbal. When using a Sony camera with a supported digital lens, the optical or digital zoom of the lens can also be controlled directly from the front dial.
On the RS 3 Mini, you&ll find a 1.4-inch full-color touchscreen, an M-mode button for switching between the gimbal&s three modes, and a front dial for focusing. An integrated NATO port on the side of the RS 3 Mini can be used to connect various accessories such as DJI&s briefcase handle, external lights or microphones.
The RS 3 Mini&s integrated battery grip is said to offer up to 10 hours of battery life. It supports charging while in use and can be fully charged in just 2.5 hours
The RS 3 Mini offers various shooting modes, such as being able to keep people in the frame independently and provide 360° dynamic rotation. The Ronin app has a wealth of smart shooting features:
Time-lapse: add a time-lapse to any video for an engaging opening or stunning transition.
Track recording: the gimbal can be set to move along up to 10 preset points to create dynamic video of any scene or environment.
Panorama: expands the camera&s field of view with a panoramic photo showing the entire scene.
