DJI Announces the Travel-Friendly RS 3 Mini Gimbal and Accessories01/10/2023
DJI has long provided intuitive stabilizing solutions for the freelance filmmaker and has continued to release tried-and-true gimbals that continue to innovate. The DJI RS 3 Mini is not an exception, combining many of the familiar features of the RS 3 with a lighter, more compact form factor―it’s designed for the travel filmmaker to take on the go with their compatible mirrorless camera.
The RS 3 Mini boasts the same third-generation stabilization technology as the RS 3 and RS 3 Pro to achieve low-angle and tracking shots easily. Where it differs the most is in its overall size. Weighing just under 2 lb, including the Quick Release Plate, and measuring just 11.7" tall unfolded, the RS 3 Mini can fit tidily into a backpack for transportation to your next shoot. It’s designed to handle payloads up to 4.4 lb, making it ideal for mirrorless camera models most commonly used by freelance videographers.
No need to acquire additional plates for rigging vertical shots―the RS 3 Mini features native vertical shooting without additional accessories to create cinematic footage for Instagram Reels or TikTok with the press of a button. A 1.4" LCD touchscreen offers intuitive control for switching orientation, among other settings, and a single USB-C port connects to your camera of choice with an L-Shaped Control Cable.
Integrated control buttons adjust gimbal movement, camera shutter, focus, and recording of the connected camera. The RS 3 Mini incorporates a Bluetooth shutter with embedded Bluetooth 5.1 technology using the Ronin control app. This minimizes cable runs to maintain an unencumbered gimbal configuration. An internal 2450mAh battery keeps the gimbal running for up to 10 hours for long shoot days. Once depleted, use the included USB-C charging cable to fully recharge in 2.5 hours.
For those familiar with the DJI reputation who are in the market for something more portable, the RS 3 Mini is for you. It’s crafted for the content creator, for dynamic vlogging, for intuitive switching between horizontal and vertical video, all in a single device that can easily slide into a carry-on pack.
