DJI today launched the RS 3 Mini, a lightweight travel camera micro-single stabilizer, priced at 1999 RMB. This is the first time that DJI has added a Mini version to the RS series of Ronin stabilizers.
The DJI RS 3 Mini has a new integrated design, with a compact and portable body that can easily fit in a shoulder bag after storage. The body weighs only 795 grams in vertical shooting mode, about 50% lighter than the RS 3 Pro, and only 850 grams in horizontal shooting mode.

Without additional accessories, the RS 3 Mini can be quickly converted to vertical shooting by directly mounting the standard quick release plate on the vertical arm of the gimbal, making it more convenient to shoot short videos such as Shake Shack. Compared to the traditional “one button vertical shooting” mode, RS 3 Mini is no longer limited by the rotation angle of the gimbal in the native vertical shooting mode, and supports the use of joystick composition, and can also easily achieve flashlight, upside down and other shooting methods.

The side of the camera is equipped with a NATO port, supporting the installation of handheld adapter grip, external fill light, monitor and other accessories. At the same time, the integrated battery grip can bring up to 10 hours of battery life, support while charging, as fast as 2.5 hours full charge.
In terms of software, the RS 3 Mini uses the same RS 3rd generation stabilization algorithm as the RS 3 Pro. The RS 3 Mini also comes standard with the Bluetooth shutter control feature that debuted on DJI’s flagship stabilizer, the RS 3 Pro.
