DJI has announced the new compact and lightweight gimbal: DJI RS 3 Mini – a lighter and smaller alternative to the already popular RS 3 and RS 3 Pro gimbals! While the RS 3 and RS 3 Pro are designed to be controlled with two hands, the Mini is compact and lightweight enough to be controlled with one hand alone.
DJI RS 3 Mini has a payload capacity of up to 2 kg (4.4 lbs), making it best-in-category at its weight, letting it easily handle larger setups like a Sony A7S3 + 24-70mm F2.8 GM lens. It supports mainstream full-frame or APS-C mirrorless cameras, enabling a wide range of camera and lens combinations.  With high-torque motors, RS 3 Mini can retain stable shooting when zooming to max focal lengths on most lenses without the need for rebalancing.
Key Features of the DJI RS 3 Mini Gimbal:
- Payload of 4.4 lbs.
- Weighs 850 grams
- 2450 mAh battery
- Vertical Orientation
- Supports A7 + 24-70mm F2.8 GM
- 3rd-Gen RS Stabilization Algorithm
- Native Vertical Shooting
- 1.4″ Full-Color Touchscreen
A Breakthrough in a Compact Body
DJI RS 3 Mini adopts an innovative redesign that includes a smaller build, integrated battery, and native vertical shooting capability. The compact and portable body can easily fit into a shoulder bag, allowing you to travel light. When in use, RS 3 Mini is about half the size of the RS 3 Pro, making it more convenient for long-duration use.
Super Light, Easy to Control
DJI RS 3 Mini weighs only 795 g (1.75 lbs) in Portrait mode, approximately 50% lighter than RS 3 Pro and 40% lighter than RS 3.  It weighs only 850 g (1.8 lbs) when shooting with the horizontal plate. Additionally, a concentrated center of balance provides a more stable and ergonomic hand-held experience.
The RS 3 Mini is the newest addition to the RS 3 and RS 3 Pro lineup. It is simply a compact version of the RS 3 and comes with many of the tech and features like AutoTune, Follow Mode, and automatic axis lock. It will have a smaller payload of 4.4 lbs. as opposed to the 6.6 lbs. that the RS3 can hold. The 4.4 lb.-payload is exceptional, considering the gimbal only weighs 850 grams.
