No. DJI RSC 2 has increased battery capacity to support up to 14 hours of battery life and allow use while charging. Use PD or QC 2.0 18W charger for fast charging.
We do not list maximum payload as camera setups can vary; however, we have tested DJI RSC 2 with a dynamic payload of 3.0 kg during handheld use.
Select "Motor auto tune" on the main screen of the DJI RSC 2, and enable SuperSmooth in the menu. After enabling SuperSmooth, select "Calibrate" to perform gimbal calibration for better stabilization.
Notes: Before using the SuperSmooth, ensure the lens is properly fixed to the gimbal with the lens-fastening strap.
Compared with normal stabilization:
1. SuperSmooth can stabilize lenses of up to 100mm equivalent focal length and can generally capture more stabilized footage than is possible with normal gimbal use;
2. SuperSmooth requires a lens support and lens-fastening strap before use.
DJI RSC 2 can be used for up to 14 hours when the battery is fully charged and the gimbal is well balanced.
When using an 18W charger, DJI RSC 2 can be fully charged in 2 hours.

Intelligent Shooting
When tracking a person, we suggest pressing the trigger once to select the subject in the center of the frame. When tracking an object, we suggest framing the subject for more accurate recognition.
To get smooth footage, we suggest setting the tracking speed to 20 when using a lens of 24mm-equivalent focal length. Note: data was measured on Sony α7 III. Increase the tracking speed for equivalent focal lengths less than 24 mm, and vice versa.
DJI RSC 2 can follow one subject at a time during ActiveTrack.
No, DJI RSC 2 can only use ActiveTrack 3.0 with the RavenEye Image Transmission System.
When DJI RSC 2 is connected to Ronin RavenEye Image Transmission System, photos and videos are saved in two ways:
1. On the SD card in the camera;
2. On the SD card and the mobile device. If you want to cache in the mobile device, please follow these instructions: In the image transmission interface of the Ronin app, tap the Settings icon on the upper left corner, select "Shutter," and select "Cache" or "Shoot + Cache." If you choose "Cache," the mobile device will start caching after tapping the shutter, whereas the SD card will not save the photos and videos. If you choose "Shoot + Cache," the mobile device will start caching after tapping the shutter, and the SD card will save the photos and videos as well.
Note: Videos cached in the mobile devices are 1080p/30fps. Android systems save footage in the album; iOS systems save footage in the Ronin app, and the user can download to album during playback.
The ActiveTrack function of DJI RSC 2 requires the Ronin RavenEye Image Transmission System. Before using ActiveTrack, please ensure all connections needed are in place. Please refer to the tutorial "Installation and Operation of Ronin RavenEye Image Transmission System."
1. Enter the Ronin app's image transmission interface. When the center frame aims at the subject, press the trigger once to start ActiveTrack;
2. Enter the image transmission interface in the Ronin app, enable ActiveTrack, and frame the subject to follow. The frame will turn green once selecting the subject is possible.
Note: If the tracking frame turns red, it means the subject is lost. Please exit ActiveTrack and frame the subject again.
Approximately 25 meters in environments free of interference and obstruction. Note: This distance was measured on iPhone XS in an open area.
