DJI’s Ronin Series Grows Stronger, Lighter & Smarter with New DJI RS 2 & RSC 2 Gimbals
2 Stabilization Systems Offer Reworked Designs & New Creative Functions to Become Workhorses for Filmmakers & Content Creators
DJI, the global leader in civilian drones & creative camera technology, today expands the legacy of the highly popular & prestigious DJI Ronin series, by introducing the rebranded DJI RS 2 & DJI RSC 2. Redesigned & reimagined, both systems offer the filmmaking & content creation community an extremely robust, versatile & professional 3-axis camera gimbal for their various needs
DJI RS 2 brings added strength & agility to creators using heavier camera systems such as DSLR & compact cinema cameras. At the same time, DJI RSC 2 was created to be more portable, meeting the needs of mirrorless & more compact camera operators
“DJI’s 1st Ronin-S & the original Ronin-SC created so much excitement when they launched that we immediately went back to the drawing board to figure out how to make our products even better,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager
“Just like with the 1st version, we took time to research how our professional customers use their Ronin products & what new features they wanted in the next generation of a handheld gimbal. Yet again, the result is the culmination of user feedback, years of design & development & significant advancements in stabilization technology. Now we are excited to showcase 2 new filmmaking tools designed to meet the needs of a wide array of filmmakers. From cinema cameras to mirrorless systems, we have a solution for you.”
DJI RS 2: Masterfully Crafted
Considering a tremendous amount of feedback from professional operators, DJI RS 2 incorporates carbon fiber in vital structural components, reducing weight down to 1.3 kg (2.86 lbs) while remaining highly durable. Pushing the innovation of single-handed gimbal technology even further, DJI RS 2 now supports a tested dynamic payload of 4.5 kg (10 lbs) for creators to use heavier camera & lens combinations 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 2 hours of battery life with just a 15-minute charge
DJI RS 2 continues pushing gimbal technology forward with the ability to support heavier payloads while capturing ultra-smooth cinematic footage. Based on years of experience developing predictive technology, a newly optimized Titan Stabilization Algorithm reduces the need for manual user input while compensating for user movement & optimizing the gimbal tilt & angle. Additionally, a new SuperSmooth mode provides another level of camera stability, especially for compensating longer focal length lenses of up to 100mm
Simple to set up, easy to operate & highly customizable, DJI RS 2 was created to allow filmmakers to adapt their system to their filming needs while feeling confident it will easily integrate into their workflow. Axis locks enable easier transportation & balancing, while a dual-layer camera mounting plate is compatible with both the Arca-Swiss & Manfrotto standard. A fine-tune balancing knob allows for even more precise balancing of the camera payload. The built-in 1.4” color touchscreen can display camera data, gimbal settings, or a live feed from the camera. Supporting 11 different languages, the ultra-bright screen can also initiate key functions such as ActiveTrack & intelligent shooting modes. The built-in front dial above the trigger allows for precise focus control & complements a DJI Focus Wheel mounted on the RSA port to create 2-channel focus & zoom.[] DJI RS 2 also turns into a versatile tool that can be attached & used with other systems such as jibs, car attachments, & sliders. 2 RSA ports double as NATO ports so that users can mount accessories & attachments such as grips & a remote controller
DJI RSC 2: Filmmaking Unfolds
A completely new & portable folding design makes DJI RSC 2 easy for creators to carry everywhere without adding additional weight to the gear list. Additionally, the folding design provides creative ways to use the gimbal such as vertical filming without additional accessories, as well as a new Briefcase mode, where the main gimbal arm can be loosened & slung forward to provide unique shooting angles. Durable materials like steel are used on vital & frequently used components, while lightweight materials such as aluminum reduce overall weight. DJI RSC 2 weighs in at 1.2 kg (2.65 lbs), 35% less than the original Ronin-S, & has a folding footprint of 180×190 mm, the same size as a sheet of A5 paper. The built-in battery offers an impressive 12 hours of battery life & like DJI RS 2, the new quick-charge function directly to the battery handle has been added for urgent situations.
DJI RSC 2 remains lightweight & portable, featuring stronger motors to support a tested payload of up to 3 kg (6.6 lbs). This increased dynamic payload supports popular mirrorless cameras along with heavier combinations like the Panasonic S1H & a 24–70mm lens. Using the same advanced technology as DJI RS 2, the newly optimized Titan Stabilization Algorithm generates a new level of stability — smoothing out fine details in conjunction with the motorized gimbal for some of the most advanced stabilization on the market. DJI RSC 2 is compatible with a wide array of camera models so users can get the most out of the system. Axis locks enable easier transportation & balancing, while a dual-layer camera mounting plate is compatible with both the Arca-Swiss & Manfrotto standard. A 1” built-in OLED screen displays camera data with the ability to adjust settings directly
Multifaceted Gimbals Supported by an Advanced App & Accessories
DJI RS 2 & RSC 2 were designed to expand beyond single-handed stabilization into tools that can be customized with additional accessories to achieve the desired shot. These accessories include a cheese plate, Focus Wheel, 3D Focus System, Twist Grip Dual Handle, RavenEye Image Transmission System, Tethered Control Handle, counterweight systems & more.[] For remote operation, both DJI RS 2 & DJI RSC 2 can use ActiveTrack 3.0 when the RavenEye Image Transmission System is connected, sending a 1080p/30fps low-latency feed to a mobile device using the Ronin app from up to 200 meters away.
Vital features & functions can now be controlled & adjusted over long distances with the Ronin app such as gimbal movement using the virtual joystick & Force Mobile, where the gimbal mimics the mobile device’s movement. For solo operators using manual-focus lenses, the 3D Focus System uses state-of-the-art TOF sensors mounted above the camera to provide autofocus. This enables a single shooter to capture smooth & cinematic footage using a manual lens, without relying on a 2nd camera operator or focus puller
Pre-Programmed Movements & Features That Make Stories Come to Life
DJI RS 2 & RSC 2 expand on their predecessors’ suite of creative modes, movements & features with tools to help capture content that stands out, including:
- *New* Time Tunnel: The system performs a 360-degree roll while capturing a hyperlapse, adding a level of creativity to footage.[]
- Flashlight: The system tilts the camera all the way forward so users can grip the base like a flashlight.
- 1-Tap Portrait Mode: The gimbal quickly orients the camera into vertical shooting for professional-level social media content.
- Panorama: After configuring sensor & focal length, choose a start & stop point for panoramas up to gigapixel size
- Roll 360: The gimbal enters into the Flashlight position & rolls the camera system 360 degrees
- Timelapse: This classic feature shows subtle changes over durations of your choosing
