Additionally, the RS 4 is compatible with the new BG70 High-Capacity Battery Grip, extending runtime to 29.5 hours, with a 2.5 hour charge time, and supporting power delivery to cameras and accessories via USB-C. For integrated shooting experiences, the RS 4 supports the DJI Ronin Image Transmitter, offering high-definition live feeds and remote-control capabilities. Complemented by an extensive accessory ecosystem, including the RS BG30 Battery Grip and RS Focus Motor, the RS 4 empowers cinematographers with advanced functionality and seamless integration for solo and small crew productions.

RS 4 Pro


Thanks to a carbon fiber design, DJI RS 4 Pro provides an impressive 4.5kg (10lbs) payload capacity, ideal for mainstream mirrorless and cinema camera setups. Offering Teflon coating with dual rolling bearings on the roll axis and a tilt axis fine-tuning knob, the RS 4 Pro ensures smooth, precise, and millimeter-level adjustments.

Enhanced features also include second-generation native vertical shooting capability, an auto-lock OLED touchscreen, and improved axis locks for reduced gimbal shakes.

With a 20% increase in motor torque across all axes for enhanced power redundancy, RS 4 Pro ensures precise and responsive tracking even with heavy cameras and accessories.

With the addition of Car Mount mode, the stabilizer optimizes its algorithm for vehicle shoots for steady capture in shaky conditions. Coupled with the fourth-generation RS stabilization algorithm, the RS 4 Pro strikes a balance between strength and tactile feel.


Leveraging the DJI Focus Pro LiDAR Autofocus system, including the Focus Pro LiDAR and Focus Pro Motor with an impressive 76,800 ranging points, a leap of 77%, the RS 4 Pro sharpens human subject edge detection while effectively reducing focus hunting. The gimbal also offers a maximum human subject focusing distance of 20m, approximately three times that of the previous generation. Additionally, the Next-Gen ActiveTrack Pro utilizes advanced AI algorithms and LiDAR technology to ensure steadfast subject tracking, even in challenging conditions. Dual Focus & Zoom Motors, combined with the DJI Focus Pro Motor, provide native and precise lens control.

The remote-control system enables seamless collaborative shooting, allowing for remote gimbal operation and intelligent focus assistance. In collaborative team shooting, the gimbal operator can control the RS 4 Pro gimbal through devices such as the DJI Master Wheels, DJI Ronin 4D Hand Grips, and DJI High-Bright Remote Monitor. Meanwhile, the focus puller can enable LiDAR Waveform on the High-Bright Remote Monitor for intelligent focus assistance, precisely controlling focus using the Focus Pro Hand Unit.

Extended Battery Runtime


The DJI RS BG70 High-Capacity Battery Grip elevates the performance of the RS 4 Pro with an extended battery runtime of up to 29 hours. Equipped with PD fast charging capability, it can reach a rapid full charge in just 2.5 hours, ensuring uninterrupted filming sessions. Additionally, the grip supports powering cameras and accessories with up to 18 watts via the USB-C port, offering exceptional versatility and convenience for prolonged shoots.

Enhanced Ecosystem

The DJI RS 4 Pro seamlessly integrates with the DJI Focus Pro lens control system, cinematographers gain access to comprehensive control over focus, iris, and zoom. With DJI Focus Pro LiDAR to DJI Transmission Cable Hub, seamless integrated setting and power supply could be achieved. DJI RS 4 Pro can power the Focus Pro LiDAR and DJI Video Transmitter simultaneously.

The RS 4 Pro also supports various handheld configurations and professional solutions through the DJI RS SDK protocol, enabling innovative solutions for car mounts, jibs, Steadicams, cable cams, and sliders.

LiDAR Focusing

The all-new DJI Focus Pro Grip offers versatility with a 2.5-hour system power supply, intuitive visual operations, auto-calibration, and data storage for 15 lenses, and Bluetooth connectivity for seamless start/stop recording. Equipped with a full-color touchscreen, the Grip allows operators to adjust LiDAR and motor parameters while providing a real-time view from the LiDAR’s perspective.
