DJI RS 3 Pro is recognizable by its carbon fiber extended arms for professional cameras.

By streamlining everything that is related to the camera, the DJI RS 3 and DJI RS 3 Pro aim to enable content creators to focus on what is in front of their camera, the drone maker said in a statement.

“The needs and requirements of the content community are extremely important to us,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager at DJI. “Ever since the introduction of the first Ronin back in 2014, we’ve continually gained feedback from industry professionals on how we can enhance our products to cater to their evolving needs. Implementing this feedback, we’ve optimized the design, stabilization, and gimbal control to create next-generation, highly effective, and reliable stabilizers designed for unparalleled efficiency. Furthermore, we don’t just stop at stabilization. We understand the importance of video transmission and the various pain points faced in large, complex venues. Whether it’s dealing with range, lagging images, or lost signals, the new DJI Transmission addresses these issues and offers an incredible 20,000-foot on-ground transmission distance.”
