DJI RS 4 price, specs, availability announced

Compact stabilizer with a host of advanced features for solo shooters


It’s DJI launch day or month, as more has already teased another launch later in the month. But today is gimbal day, and the second DJI gimbal to be announced today after the DJI RS 4 Pro, is the RS 4, the smaller sibling of the outstanding RS 4 Pro – you can check out the review of the RS 4 Pro here. Back to the RS 4, this lightweight gimbal has been specially designed for use by solo videographers, and it has a host of features to help aid filming for those working alone. The compact size and weight make the RS 4 an ideal choice for small events like weddings, performances, annual galas, and exhibitions, as well as promotional videos for corporate, city, and real estate projects.

The big features of the RS 4 are the ease of use and the ability to switch formats from horizontal to vertical without having to spend time with lengthy rebalancing. There’s also a new joystick mode that will enable you to easily switch between zoom and gimbal control. One of the key points of previous RS models over the RS Pro models was the ease of adjustment, and here, the new model features Teflon-coated arms, ensuring smoother balancing and handling. While the weight limit is less than the RS 4 Pro at 3kg (6.6 lbs) for its maximum payload, that is still a decent amount of weight and will be more than enough to carry most standard mirrorless cameras with a decent lens and accessories.

When it comes to camera support, the DJI RS 4 has been designed to work with a wide range of cameras, including the Sony FX3/A7M4/A7C/A1 with FE 24-70 mm F2.8, Canon R5 with RF 24-70 mm F2.8, and Nikon Z6 II/Z7 II with Z 24-70 mm F2.8, these are just a few of the camera and lens combos that work with the gimbal but that list is not exclusive. One thing to consider when using a gimbal is the setup weight, and here at 1.4 kg (3.1 lbs), this makes it a great choice for extended use and should save your arms through the riggers of a day’s shoot.

Feature-wise, the RS 4 offers Teflon-coated axis arms, second-gen automated axis locks, and an aluminium alloy structure. On the gimbal, there’s a handy 1.8″ OLED full-colour touchscreen and the fourth-gen RS stabilization algorithm that handles all the complex balancing tasks when the gimbal is in use.

Suppose you’re looking to expand the use of the gimbal. In that case, there are a few significant improvements over the old RS 3, including a new RSA communication port enabling connections with the DJI Ronin Tethered Control Handle as well as other third-party accessories. The updated Focus Pro Motor sees a 30% speed increase and supports flexible positioning.

Powering the DJI RS 4 is a redesigned BG70 High-Capacity Battery Grip that is able to support up to 29.5 hours of operation.
