The DJI RS 4 lightweight commercial stabiliser supports next-generation native vertical shooting with enhanced operation efficiency, improved stabilisation performance, and an upgraded accessory ecosystem. It empowers solo cinematographers with a more professional and efficient creative experience and the toolset to tell gripping visual stories.

2nd-Gen Native Vertical Shooting Joystick Mode Switch, Zoom/Gimbal Control Teflon™-Coated Axis Arms, Smoother Balancing
3kg (6.6lbs) Payload Capacity, Extended Tilt Axis RSA Communication Port, Extensive Control Ecosystem High-Capacity Battery Grip, Approx. 2.5x Battery Runtime [1]

 

 

 

Quick Launch

 

2nd-Gen Native Vertical Shooting

DJI RS 4 features a newly designed horizontal plate, enabling the second generation of native vertical shooting for faster and simpler operation. Without the need for additional accessories, you can simply release the horizontal plate and secure it into the vertical position for an easy switch to vertical shooting, [2] paving the way for efficient vertical video creation.

 

2nd-Gen Automated Axis Locks

The automated axis locks allow RS 4 to quickly start working or enter sleep mode, significantly enhancing shooting, transition, and storage efficiency. Additionally, the axis locks have smaller gaps when locked, further reducing gimbal shake.

 

Our Smoothest Balancing Experience Yet

DJI RS 4 features a Teflon™ coating for all three axes, resulting in reduced friction and smoother balancing.

When switching cameras or lenses, the fine-tuning knob on the tilt axis can move the camera forward or backward, achieving precise, millimetre-level balancing.

The upper quick-release plate has an added adjustable placement guide to ensure secure camera mounting.
 

Automatic Screen Lock

‌The OLED touchscreen incorporates a new auto-lock feature. Once locked, the screen will display the current gimbal and joystick modes at a low brightness. This not only prevents accidental touches but also helps to conserve battery power.
 

 

 

Powerful Stabilisation

Excellent Payload Capacity

The lightweight body boasts a 3kg (6.6lbs) payload capacity. It can carry mainstream mirrorless camera and lens combinations, enabling comfortable holding with robust power.

Compared with the previous generation, RS 4's tilt axis has been extended by 8.5 mm, offering expanded balancing space. This allows you to mount mainstream mirrorless camera and lens combinations along with accessories like ND filters, broadening the scope for creative potential.
 

4th-Gen RS Stabilisation Algorithm

DJI has comprehensively optimised the next-generation RS stabilisation algorithm for different usage scenarios. It strikes a superior balance between stabilisation strength and the tactile feel of camera movement, delivering both excellent stabilisation performance and an enhanced user experience. Additionally, RS 4 offers significantly improved stability when vertical shooting, easily steadying dynamic shots like running or low-angle perspectives.
 

Professional Creation

DJI RS 4 supports the professional-grade features of DJI PRO products, delivering superior performance that makes solo creation more efficient.

 

Bluetooth Wireless Control

DJI RS 4 can remotely control camera shutter and lens zoom with Dual-Mode Bluetooth technology. In zoom control mode, you can use the joystick to control Power Zoom for PZ lenses and Clear Image Zoom, [3] obtaining a native zoom experience. A camera only needs to be paired once, after which it can reconnect seamlessly and automatically.
 

Support for DJI Focus Pro Motor

When paired with the new DJI Focus Pro Motor, [4] DJI RS 4 allows you to control the lens focus via dial or adjust the lens zoom via joystick. This smooth operation enables efficient lens control.

Trigger Function Customisation

The trigger function can be customised to FPV mode, where pressing and holding the trigger makes the gimbal's three axes follow the direction of the grip's movement. This is particularly useful for shooting rotational footage or simulating POV.


Gimbal Mode Switch

By toggling the gimbal mode switch, you can quickly switch between PF, PTF, and FPV modes. You can also set FPV mode to 3D Roll 360 mode or Custom mode according to the shooting requirements, ensuring RS 4 is precision-ready.

Accessory Ecosystem

RSA Communication Port

DJI RS 4 introduces an RSA communication port, which allows for the connection of accessories such as the DJI RS Tethered Control Handle [6] and third-party accessories like control handles [6] and remote-control ring handles. [6] You can flexibly switch between different shooting setups according to your creative needs.

Thanks to DJI RS SDK protocol, third-party manufacturers and individual developers can develop customised functions for RS 4, meeting a wider range of shooting requirements.
 

DJI RS SDK creates a joint ecosystem with developers

DJI RS SDK is a developer protocol provided by DJI for developers and third-party hardware manufacturers to equip stabilisers such as RS 4 Pro, RS 3 Pro, and RS 4 with more features for extensive scenarios.

 

Features

Set gimbal position
Control gimbal rotation
Get motor and attitude information
Control camera focus and shooting

 

Applications

1. Build a virtual studio system that can use a PC or console to control the RS stabiliser. It also supports online control of multiple gimbals, allowing solo operators to manage several devices with ease.
2. Mount the RS stabiliser on a slider and link the two through programming for four-dimensional control. You can customise the shooting track to get effortlessly expressive camera movements.
 

Note: DJI RS SDK is currently available only in English and Chinese. If you have requests or questions, please visit the DJI Forum for more details.

 

DJI RS BG70 High-Capacity Battery Grip

The new BG70 High-Capacity Battery Grip [6] can extend RS 4's battery runtime to 29.5 hours. [7] It also supports powering your camera and accessories with up to 18 W via the USB-C port at the bottom.
 

Max Battery Runtime PD Fast Charging Rapid Full Charge [8] Max Power Output
29.5 Hours 45 W 2.5 Hours 18 W

 

Support for DJI Ronin Image Transmitter

Both independent cinematographers and small crews can utilise the Ronin Image Transmitter [6] for high-definition live feeds, remote gimbal and camera control, ActiveTrack 4.0, Force Mobile, and more, achieving an integrated shooting experience with monitoring and control capabilities.

 

Extensive Accessory Ecosystem

DJI RS series accessories, [6] such as the RS BG30 Battery Grip, RS Focus Motor (2022), and Ronin Image Transmitter, are all compatible with RS 4.

 

DJI RS BG30 Battery Grip DJI RS Focus Motor (2022) DJI RS Tethered Control Handle DJI RS Twist Grip Dual Handle DJI Ronin Image Transmitter
The battery grip can power RS 4 for approximately 12 hours. [7] It supports PD and QC 2.0 fast charging protocols. With a 24W charging specification, it can be charged to approximately 80% in 1 hour and fully charged in 1.5 hours, and can be charged separately from the gimbal. With a maximum torque of 1 N·m, the focus motor delivers a smooth focusing experience. It also adopts a quick-release structure, allowing it to be assembled easily without any tools for faster use. In the dual-grip configuration (used with the Twist Grip Dual Handle), the handle supports operations such as entering sleep mode, recording, and focusing. Equipped with a NATO port and a cold shoe, it allows for mounting a remote monitor and adding a focus wheel on the side. ‌The handle features NATO ports and a quick-release design. It allows for swift transitions from dual-handheld to low-angle briefcase configurations without the need for disassembly. It is compatible with accessories that have the corresponding ports. It supports high-definition live feeds, remote gimbal and camera control, ActiveTrack 4.0, Force Mobile, and many other features, providing an integrated monitoring and control experience for solo cinematographers and small crews.

 

Notes:

* The DJI Ronin app is required for activation when using DJI RS 4 for the first time.
‌1. Data was measured by comparing the battery runtime of DJI RS 4 equipped with the DJI RS BG70 High-Capacity Battery Grip and that of DJI RS 4 equipped with the DJI RS BG21 Battery Grip. Battery runtime was measured in a 25° C (77° F) indoor environment with the gimbal balanced in a level and stationary state until the battery level reached 3% (with the battery grip only powering the gimbal).
2. The gimbal requires rebalancing after switching between horizontal and vertical shooting.
