The lightweight DJI RS 3 Mini can stabilize full-frame cameras – The Verge

January 11, 2023 by No Comments

DJI has announced the DJI RS 3 Mini, a more compact and lightweight alternative to the larger RS 3 and RS 3 Pro gimbals. Weighing just 1.75 pounds (795g), the RS 3 Mini is the smallest entry to the third-generation Ronin series of stabilizers designed for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Being around half the weight and size of the RS 3 Pro, the RS 3 Mini should be a lot easier to toss into a bag for traveling and allows some users to shoot stabilized video with one hand. 

It might have mini in the name, but the compact RS 3 Mini can support cameras up to 4.4 pounds in weight, so provided you can lift a little more than six pounds with one arm, you should be able to use this thing in just one hand. DJI has provided a full list of supported configurations on its website, including the Canon EOS R5 equipped with an RF24-70mm F2.8 STM lens, Sony Alpha 7S III with a 24-70mm F2.8 GM lens, and the Fuji X-H2S with an XF 18-55 mm F2.8-4 lens. DJI also claims that the RS 3 Mini can stabilize extending zoom lenses without the need to rebalance.

The RS 3 Mini features the same stabilization technology found on the larger RS 3 Pro, which should help to achieve reliably smooth footage even when running, capturing a low-angle shot, or shooting in flashlight mode. Dual-layer quick-release plates should also allow for vertical shooting (ideal for social media content) without requiring additional accessories or restricting the gimbal’s movements.
