It is especially striking how DJI has been able to expand its domains beyond its drones. The quadcopter market has a limited audience after all, so the Chinese brand was able to apply its knowledge and technology to bring to life another tremendously striking device: stabilizers for cameras.
New Ronin RS 3 family
DJI camera stabilizers are very popular, so the brand has continued to work on improving its products. The result is these RS3 and RS 3 Pro , two extremely effective stabilizers that include a series of improvements that make them the most advanced models on the market.
To begin with, its weight has been kept quite well below 1.3 kilos in the case of the RS 3 and 1.5 kilos in the case of the RS 3 Pro, with both models maintaining a stabilized load capacity of 3 and 4 .5 kilos respectively .
The incorporation of a color OLED screen and Bluetooth connection allow live control of the stabilizer to be carried out in a more comfortable and precise way, since we can connect our mobile phone and remotely control the orientation of the stabilization with simple movements in the air. In this way, we could be handling the stabilizer with our hands and a second person controlling the focus and framing remotely from a Smartphone.
Get to work faster than ever
One of the most uncomfortable things about stabilizers are the calibration times needed for the whole body to be perfectly balanced and the imbalances that occur when we turn it off and fold its axes. All this has been controlled with the new generation of DJI, since an automatic locking system has been included that is responsible for immobilizing the axes completely automatically.
Thus, when we are not working with the Ronin, everything will remain perfectly collected and rigid, and when we go to record again, everything will return to its place automatically. Also, thanks to the new quick release plates, removing and putting the camera back on the Ronin will not be a problem, since we will always return the body to the exact place where the balance is maintained.
Follow and manage the recording from a distance
The other product featured is the DJI Transmission , a device that perfectly encapsulates the drone heritage of DJI products. Considering the excellent video transmission technology offered by the brand’s drones, why not apply this to professional video? That is the idea of the DJI Transmission wireless video receiver, which is responsible for emitting the signal from a camera and sending it to a 7-inch wireless monitor with 1,500 nits of brightness so that we can review live the shot that is being made. This is obviously a product well thought out for the professional sector, and the possibilities it offers are endless.
Being able to adjust the parameters of the stabilization or the recording mode of the camera while we are seeing what is being captured at a distance of up to 6 kilometers with a 1080/60P resolution is something that sounds really spectacular. To achieve this, the device uses 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz networks, in addition to a DFS band, to have a total of 23 available transmission channels.
With the help of the built-in gyroscope on the screen, you can also control the movement of the stabilizer in a natural way, being a great camera support for the operator.
How much they cost?
The prices of the products will depend on the number of accessories that we decide to acquire, but to give you an idea, the base price of the Ronin RS 3 is 549 euros , rising to 719 euros if we include the suitcase, the focus motor and other accessories. specific for focus control.
On the RS 3 Pro side, the base price is €869 , jumping to €1,099 with the full combo with Focus motor arm kit, Ronin image transmitter, phone holder and extended quick release seat.
Finally, the most professional accessory of all, the DJI Transmission , is priced at 2,299 euros , and is made up of the transmitter and the high-gloss remote monitor. Both can be purchased separately for 1,099 and 1,299 euros respectively.
