DJI, the global leader in civilian drones and creative camera technology, today expands the legacy of the highly popular and prestigious DJI Ronin series, by introducing the rebranded DJI RS 2 and DJI RSC 2.
DJI RS 2 brings added strength and agility to creators using heavier camera systems such as DSLR and compact cinema cameras. At the same time, DJI RSC 2 was created to be more portable, meeting the needs of mirrorless and more compact camera operators.
“DJI’s first Ronin-S and 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.
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 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 for creators to use heavier camera and 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.
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 and balancing, while a dual-layer camera mounting plate is compatible with both the Arca-Swiss and Manfrotto standard.
A fine-tune balancing knob allows for even more precise balancing of the camera payload. The built-in 1.4” colour touchscreen can display camera data, gimbal settings, or a live feed from the camera.
DJI RSC 2: Filmmaking Unfolds
A completely new and portable folding design makes DJI RSC 2 easy for creators to carry everywhere without adding additional weight to the gear list.
The folding design provides creative ways to use the gimbal such as vertical filming, as well as a new Briefcase mode, where the main gimbal arm can be loosened and slung forward to provide unique shooting angles.
DJI RSC 2 weighs in at 1.2 kg, and has a folding footprint of 180×190 mm. The built-in battery offers an impressive 12 hours of battery life. Using the same advanced technology as DJI RS 2, the newly optimised Titan Stabilisation Algorithm generates a new level of stability.
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 and balancing, while a dual-layer camera mounting plate is compatible with both the Arca-Swiss and Manfrotto standard. A 1” built-in OLED screen displays camera data with the ability to adjust settings directly.
Pre-Programmed Movements and Features That Make Stories Come to Life
DJI RS 2 and RSC 2 expand on their predecessors’ suite of creative modes, movements, and 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.
- One-Tap Portrait Mode: The gimbal quickly orients the camera into vertical shooting for professional-level social media content.
- Panorama: After configuring sensor and focal length, choose a start and stop point for panoramas up to gigapixel size.
- Roll 360: The gimbal enters into the Flashlight position and rolls the camera system 360 degrees.
- Timelapse: This classic feature shows subtle changes over durations of your choosing.
