The Chinese manufacturer DJI has presented its RS 3 Mini, a relatively compact gimbal that will be used to stabilize both horizontal and vertical videos.
DJI is definitely on all fronts. The Chinese manufacturer not only offers drones at all prices or action cameras, such as the Osmo Action 3, but is also a major player in the field of stabilization with its gimbals. After presenting its RS 3 and RS 3 Pro in June 2022, the firm returns with a more compact model, as its name suggests, the DJI RS 3 Mini.
Logically, the RS 3 Mini takes up the main features of its two older ones, since we will specifically find a 1.4-inch screen accessible directly from the handle to choose its control and shooting modes. It is also accompanied by a record button, a mode management button and a stick to control the shot.
Above all, the gimbal is decidedly lighter and more compact than the DJI RS 3 and RS 3 Pro, weighing 795 grams on the scale, compared to the DJI RS 3 Pro’s more than 1,400 grams. The RS 3 Mini is also Designed for one-handed operation. The Chinese manufacturer specifies that the gimbal is designed for use with cameras or cameras weighing up to 2 kilograms. The stabilizer also benefits from the same quick release plate system as previous versions. Its battery allows an autonomy of up to 10 hours.
A use designed for vertical video
It should also be noted that DJI is targeting this gimbal in particular for internet creators with a highlighted portrait format to correspond to the uses of vertical video, be it in stories, shorts or social networks like TikTok or Instagram.
The DJI RS 3 Mini is now available for sale. It is offered in France at a price of 389 euros.
