DJI RS 2 features

Carbon fiber construction

TheDJI RS 2 is the first camera stabilizer in its category to be made of self-supporting fiberglass. With its 1.3 kg, theDJI RS 2 remains feather-light, its tested payload is 4.5 kg, it offers the highest weight per payload performance in its gimbal class, so you can film all day with a professional-level setup.



Color touch screen
To further expand filmmakers' options, theDJI RS 2 features a 1.4-inch color touchscreen built right into the arm. The screen allows the user to access gimbal and camera parameters, and provides a live camera feed for ActiveTrack 3.0 tracking and use.

TheDIJ RS 2 is an excellent one-handed camera stabilizer with a modular design that can be easily mounted on a vehicle, crane, cable camera and many other places. With its RSA ports designed as NATO mounts, theDJI RS 2 is compatible with a large number of accessories from other manufacturers, allowing users to customize it in countless ways.



High capacity battery
The BG30 handle on the RS2 provides up to 12 hours of battery life, and thanks to fast charging, it charges from 0 to 80% in one hour. The battery also has its own USB-C port, so you can charge it without attaching it to the DJI RS 2.

DJI RS 2 movie making features
Regardless of skill level, the intelligent functions and advanced systems of theDJI RS 2 lend a real cinematic experience to camera recordings.

Titan stabilization algorithm
DJI RS 2 comes with the latest DJI camera stabilizer technology. With the help of a stabilizer called SuperSmooth, the Titan enables smooth shots even with lenses with a focal length of 100mm.

RavenEye Image Transmission System
For even more dynamic control, theDJI RS 2 introduces the RavenEye image transmission system, which transfers a 1080p live image from the camera to your phone, up to 100 meters away, with a 50 ms delay. RavenEye also allows you to control the camera parameters directly from the Ronin app, giving you more freedom when shooting.



ActiveTrack 3.0
Another point is connected to RaveEye: this is ActiveTrack 3.0, which you can manage directly from the touch screen of theDJI RS 2 based on the live image of the camera. Here you can select the subject you want to follow, which means you no longer have to mount a smartphone on top of your camera.



3D focusing system
For a new era of camera lens focusing, theDJI RS 2 introduces 3D Focus, a revolutionary new system that uses infrared rays to continuously measure the distance between the lens and the subject. With this method, precise focus is set almost instantly, providing pin-sharp autofocus even for high-power manual lenses.

DJI RS 2 Smart Features
Creativity is the soul of filmmaking, so theDJI RS 2 has smart features that allow your footage to match your vision.

Time Tunnel
The ever-popular 3D Roll feature is back, and this time it comes in a new form that's sure to wow your audience. Time Tunnel takes 3D Roll as its base and adds hyperlapse to create out-of-this-world footage.

Force Mobile
With the Ronin app, the only thing you need to do to control theDJI RS 2 is move your phone. The gimbal tracks every decision and rotation, so you can record even more continuously.

One-touch portrait mode
As professional quality becomes the new standard for social media content, the DJI RS 2 is ready to switch the camera to portrait mode directly from the touchscreen or the Ronin app.

Is the DJI RS 2 Pro Combo worth it?
The DJI RS 2 Pro Combo includes some essential accessories that can significantly enhance your filmmaking experience. There are a couple of key accessories that are cheaper in this build than if you had to wait for them to become available.

RavenEye Image Transfer
Based on the above, RavenEye provides the DJI RS 2 with 1080p live image transmission to the smartphone, up to 100 m away. If you want to use ActiveTrack 3.0 as well, remember that RaveEye is required for this.

Focus motor, focus motor rod mount kit and focus dial tape
These components allow you to adjust the focus of camera lenses directly from the lever. With all the components installed, you can use the built-in dial on the front to manage focus, which is especially great for single-person crews.



Who is the DJI RS 2 designed for?

Professional cameramen
With its advanced capabilities and direct control functions, the DJI RS 2 is a great filmmaking tool for cinematographers looking for the perfect shot. With easy-to-reach parameters and focus, professional users can take full control of their recording, especially when working alone. By controlling the DJI RS 2 with their professional knowledge, the cameramen can take complex shots on their own, which previously mostly required a well-trained crew.



Film studios
Studios of any size and budget can take advantage of all the benefits the DJI RS 2 has to offer, especially since it's designed as a multi-use stabilizer. The DJI RS 2 performs excellently as a handheld camera stabilizer, but also as a fixed gimbal platform, so you can use it in traditional setups, such as on a crane or mounted on a vehicle. And best of all, the RSA/NATO port means compatibility with plenty of accessories that studios already have.



DJI RS2 accessories
One of the essential points that makes the DJI RS 2 so effective is the ecosystem of accessories that prove that this camera stabilizer is a real professional workhorse. The RavenEye image transmission system sends 1080p live camera footage to your phone, provides remote control of camera parameters, and enables the use of ActiveTrack 3.0. The Twist Grip Dual arm has a unique wrist design, so you can hold your camera in a variety of ways.

And the basic expansion kit provides multiple mounting and remote control options, helping you use DJI RS 2 in completely new ways.

    What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humor and the like).
