Intelligent Features
Tap the gimbal calibration icon on the touchscreen of the gimbal and enable SuperSmooth mode.* Tap Start Calibration to perform calibration for better stabilization.

* Before using SuperSmooth mode, make sure you have installed the lens-fastening support.
SuperSmooth mode was developed for fast-moving scenarios. It increases the torque of DJI RS 3 Pro to further enhance stabilization, delivering stable footage in more dynamic and strenuous shooting scenarios.
You can use the joystick on the grip to control the gimbal and compose your shot.
Inheriting the design language of DJI RS 2, DJI RS 3 Pro features extended carbon fiber axis arms, new automated axis locks, a gimbal mode switch, Bluetooth shutter control, as well as a 1.8-inch full-color OLED touchscreen, making shooting more efficient and convenient. The optimized structure of RS 3 Pro ensures that its weight remains at 1.5 kg (this weight includes the gimbal, battery grip, and dual-layered quick-release plates), while its load capacity is a robust 4.5 kg. In addition, DJI RS 3 Pro is equipped with the 3rd-Gen RS Stabilization Algorithm that supports LiDAR focusing and O3 Pro video transmission technologies, delivering an integrated receiving, monitoring, and control experience that facilitates coordinated shooting.

When the gimbal is powered off, press and hold the power button, and the three axes unlock and expand automatically for use within just a few seconds. Press and hold the power button again to lock the axes and power off the gimbal. During use, press the power button once, and the axes automatically lock and enter sleep mode. Press once again to unlock and wake.
With the new gimbal mode switch, you can quickly change between Pan Follow, Pan and Tilt Follow, and FPV modes. The FPV switch is also customizable to 3D Roll 360, Portrait, or Custom.
Approx. 4.5 kg/10 lbs.
The RS 3 Pro arms are constructed from layered sheets of uncut carbon fiber and the arms have also been extended to allow for more balancing space. When the roll axis arm is extended fully, the roll axis arm and the pan axis arm will interfere and may affect the storage effect. So if Auto Lock is set to "Fold & Lock", the gimbal will keep a certain angle to complete the storage, regardless of the extension length of the roll arm.
The roll axis does not come with the axis arm length detection function, and therefore cannot identify the axis arm length. As such, DJI RS 3 Pro cannot be completely folded for storage through settings.
However, when the DJI RS 3 roll axis arm is completely extended, the roll axis arm and the pan axis arm will not interfere with each other during folding. In this manner, the DJI RS 3 can be completely folded for storage.
Camera Control
Please refer to the Ronin Series Compatibility Search: https://www.dji.com/support/compatibility
Swipe down the main page of the built-in touchscreen, tap the Bluetooth icon, and DJI RS 3 Pro will start searching for Bluetooth signals of surrounding devices. Select the Bluetooth name of your camera. Certain camera models require a linking password. After successful connection, the Bluetooth icon will turn blue. For detailed steps, watch the tutorial Connecting DJI RS 3/RS 3 Pro.
Press halfway to autofocus, press once to start recording, and press and hold to take a photo.

Use the Ronin Expansion Base Kit to mount DJI RS 3 Pro.
There are four ways to control DJI RS 3 Pro remotely:
1. Pair DJI RS 3 Pro with DJI Transmission to control the gimbal and camera focus remotely with Ronin 4D Hand Grips, DJI Master Wheels, or DJI Force Pro. The DJI High-Bright Remote Monitor can be used as an independent motion controller to remotely control the gimbal.
2. Connect DJI RS 3 Pro to the DJI R Focus Wheel and DJI Pro Wireless Receiver. Link the DJI Pro Wireless Receiver with DJI Master Wheels or DJI Force Pro to remotely control the gimbal via DJI Master Wheels or DJI Force Pro.
3. When using DJI RS 3 Pro with the DJI Ronin Image Transmitter, use Force Mobile or the virtual joysticks in the Ronin app to control the gimbal remotely.
Lens calibration profiles are stored in the DJI RS Focus Motor (2022). After connecting the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) and DJI RS Focus Motor (2022) to the gimbal, you can delete the files on the lens calibration page on the built-in touchscreen.
Three at most.
1. Use a USB-C cable to connect the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) with a computer. Launch DJI Assistant 2 (Ronin Series), and log into your DJI account.
2. Click on the LiDAR range finder icon to enter the firmware update page, and wait for the firmware list to be updated.
3. Select the firmware version you need and click Update. Then, wait for the firmware to be downloaded. After the download, the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) will automatically perform the update.
No. It can only work with manual lenses.
When the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) is connected to DJI RS 3 Pro via the multi-camera control cable, if the display becomes grainy or flickers, use the DJI LiDAR Control Cable to connect the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) with DJI RS 3 Pro.
Currently no. The DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS), DJI Video Transmitter, and DJI RS 3 Pro together can consume up to 20 W of power. When powered by the DJI RS 3 Pro battery grip, power supply may be insufficient. To ensure a smooth user experience, these two accessories should not be used with DJI RS 3 Pro simultaneously.
You can try the following operations:
1. Calibrate the lens again. Make sure the subject is in focus at 1 meter and at 4 meters.
2. A hood or matte box attached to the lens may obstruct LiDAR signals and result in images being out of focus. Try removing the hood or matte box and calibrating the lens again.
3. Longer lenses may also obstruct LiDAR signals and result in images being out of focus. Try changing to a shorter lens and calibrating again.
Aim at diffused or highly reflective surfaces such as cement walls, unpainted wood, or unpolished stone. Do not aim at glass or metal surfaces or pure black areas.
Up to 12 hours with equipment in a level and stationary state, the gimbal balanced, three axes in an active state, and the battery only powering the gimbal.
Approx. 1.5 hours.*

* Measured with a 24W charger. It is recommended to use QC 2.0 or PD protocol chargers.
The battery grip of DJI RS 3 Pro is not interchangeable with that of DJI RS 3, but it is interchangeable with DJI RS 2.
