DJI RS 2 and RSC 2 Gimbals

Lighter, yet Stronger

DJI’s two new gimbals, the carbon-fiber infused RS 2, and aluminum/steel construction RSC 2, fit the needs of professionals and consumers alike, priced at $849 and $499 respectively.

Improving upon the Ronin S and SC, the RS 2 and RSC 2 deliver significant upgrades in stabilization and user controls in the new models.

Both gimbals feature the addition of a touchscreen, SuperSmooth mode for telephoto lens, universal Manfrotto + Arca-Swiss mounting plates, fast-charging batteries, and fine-tune balancing knobs.

Pre-progammed moves on both models include:

  • *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. 

The higher payload of the RS 2 and versatile mounting points favor professionals, while the RSC 2 is compact and portable, perfect for mirrorless cameras.

Both models have ActiveTrack 3.0 mode for intelligent object tracking, and when paired up with the RavenEye Image Transmission System, a low-latency HD feed is sent to a mobile device up to 200 meters away.
