Two new camera stabilizers to drool over while debating which one to get. Let's take a look.

DJI has released two new camera stabilizers – both revolutionary in their own way, and both giving you the coveted features that other stabilizers and gimbals lack.

DJI RS 2

The RS 2 is the new DJI flagship stabilizer for professional filmmakers. This stabilizer supports a higher payload and allows the use of cameras such as the Arri Alexa Mini LF, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, Sony a7s III, and Canon 1DX.

The DJI RS 2 is the successor to the Ronin-S, and this new gimbal really does deliver the upgrades. It's lighter at 2.36 pounds and can carry up to 10 pounds of payload.

Not only do you keep 3-axis controls, there are much better tracking systems out there, as well as more configurations to take photos in.

The RS 2 is a great combo of the full size Ronin 2 and Ronin-S. You can say that a lot of thought and testing has gone into the stabilizer to bring us the most versatile tool.

The new battery system will charge for 12 hours. If this is still not enough, the new fast charging system offers you an additional service life of 2 hours with just 15 minutes of charging.

The RavenEye transmitter makes it easy to connect to your Ronin and not only get an instant 1080p feed monitor on your phone or tablet, but you can also track subjects with your device. Force Mobile allows you to mount the Ronin out of range and fully control it from your mobile device.

The front wheel allows you to control the focus with your index finger.

Major improvements

These new gimbals are really a whole new monster compared to the old Ronin-S. For a great overview and preview, check out this review from our friends at Indy Mogul.

One of the drawbacks of this new system, as mentioned in this review, is that the battery system has been completely replaced. So if you own the previous Ronin S, you won't be able to use any of the batteries you bought earlier.

Still, I'm scratching my head with all the new perks I'm supposed to get. This RS 2, man, oh man. I want one of these. It's a shame I just bought a camera on my last budget under $ 1,000.
