DJI announces new RS 3 and RS 3 Pro camera gimbals with Transmission video transmitter in tow
DJI has unveiled the RS 3, RS 3 Pro and Transmission at today's 'set a new standard' launch event. As expected, the company has not announced an RSC 3, nor an RSC 3 Pro. Instead, the RS 3 series offers DJI's third-generation RS stabilisation algorithm, one-tap calibration and an automated axis lock system.
For reference, DJI claims that its third-generation algorithm improves stabilisation performance by 20% compared to the one that the RSC 2 series utilises. Unsurprisingly, DJI has included a Bluetooth shutter button, along with display that serves as a secondary viewfinder. According to DJI, the OLED touchscreen measures 1.8-inches across, making it 80% larger than the one found in the RSC 2.
Meanwhile, the RS 3 Pro has a LiDAR Range Finder and can accommodate heavier cameras that weigh up to 4.5 kg. In comparison, the RS 3 only supports up to 3 kg camera payloads. Additionally, DJI has revealed the Transmission, a new video transmitter that measures 127 x 87 x 26 mm. Full details about the DJI Transmission can be found on the company's website, where it retails for US$2,499.
Currently, DJI expects to begin shipping the Transmission in September 2022. By contrast, the RS 3 is on track to ship on June 30, with the RS 3 set for a July 7 release. The RS 3 and RS 3 Pro are available to order now at the following prices:
- DJI RS 3: US$549
- DJI RS 3 Combo: US$719
- DJI RS 3 Pro: US$869
- DJI RS 3 Pro Combo: US$1,099
