DJI has expanded its popular Ronin series of professional 3-axis camera gimbals with two new models: the DJI RS 2 and the more compact DJI RSC 2.

Redesigned to cater for different users’ needs, the DJI RS 2 brings added strength and agility to creators using heavier camera systems such as DSLR and compact cinema cameras, while the DJI RSC 2 was created to be more portable to meet the needs of mirrorless and more compact camera operators.  Capable of carrying a dynamic payload of 4.5 kg, the DJI RS 2 incorporates carbon fibre in vital structural components, reducing its weight to 1.3 kg, while still achieving up to 12 hours of battery life. A new quick-charge function directly to the battery handle has been added for urgent situations, providing an extra two hours of battery life with just a 15-minute charge.  A newly optimised Titan Stabilisation Algorithm reduces the need for manual user input while compensating for user movement and optimising the gimbal tilt and angle, while the new SuperSmooth mode provides added stability for longer focal length lenses of up to 100mm.

The DJI RS 2 and RSC 2 expand on their predecessors’ suite of creative modes, movements and features with tools to control functions like a 360-degree roll, vertical shooting for social media content, time-lapse and shooting panoramas up to gigapixel size. The standalone DJI RS 2 is available for the retail price of AU$1,299, and the standalone DJI RSC 2 is available at the retail price of AU$699. Both models are available for purchase at DJI Authorised Resellers in Australia and in the online store. Each product offers purchase options for a standalone gimbal and a combination pack that includes additional accessories.
