Dji announced today two new gimbals – the ATP s 2 and the smaller district SC 2. It’s been well over a month since DJI teased its new products.
Both three-axis gimbals come with upgrades you’d expect. Stronger Motors, heavier payloads, lighter materials, but also some software features we have n’t seen yet. Before we get to that, let’s start with the hardware changes on the RS 2.
The RS 2 is 1.3lbs lighter than the original Japan S. weighs a total of 2.86lbs.
The gimbal also comes with a small 1.4-inch touchscreen display. It can be used to show gimbal settings, camera data, and transmit a live feed of what the camera is recording. Its main purpose is so you can use features like active track without attaching your smartphone on top of the camera.
Dji is also introducing Titan stabilization algorithm, a predictive technology that should optimize to your specific shooting style over time. supersmooth is specifically designed for smoothing out movements when shooting with a tighter lens of up to 100mm lens.
Follow focus wheel sits right above your index finger. Both RS 2 and RSC 2 are now compatible with Arca Swiss & Manfrotto plates.
The ATP SC 2 is a smaller version of the RS 2 built for smaller mirrorless cameras. This year’s updates include a new foldable design and many of the software and hardware features added to the RS2.
The gimbal weighs in at 2.65lbs, which is just slightly heavier than its 2.4lbs predecessor. This year DJI promises that more popular camera/lens combinations will work better.
The new foldable design allows for this gimbal to be held in Sling mode. There’s also a small 1-inch screen right above the handle.
Dji adds a new quick charge function that can give you a total of 2 hours of use in 15 minutes of charge time.
