FAQs
What subject should I choose when calibrating manual lenses?

Aim at diffused or highly reflective surfaces such as cement walls, unpainted wood, or unpolished stone. Do not aim at glass or metal surfaces or pure black areas.

FAQs
How long is the runtime of the DJI RS 3 Pro battery grip?

Up to 12 hours with equipment in a level and stationary state, the gimbal balanced, three axes in an active state, and the battery only powering the gimbal.

FAQs
How long does it take to fully charge the DJI RS 3 Pro battery grip?

Approx. 1.5 hours.*

* Measured with a 24W charger. It is recommended to use QC 2.0 or PD protocol chargers.

FAQs

Three at most.

FAQs
How do I update the firmware of the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS)?

1. Use a USB-C cable to connect the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) with a computer. Launch DJI Assistant 2 (Ronin Series), and log into your DJI account.

2. Click on the LiDAR range finder icon to enter the firmware update page, and wait for the firmware list to be updated.

No. It can only work with manual lenses.

FAQs
When do I need to use the DJI LiDAR Control Cable?

When the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) is connected to DJI RS 3 Pro via the multi-camera control cable, if the display becomes grainy or flickers, use the DJI LiDAR Control Cable to connect the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) with DJI RS 3 Pro.

FAQs
Can DJI RS 3 Pro be used with the DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS) and DJI Transmission simultaneously?

Currently no. The DJI LiDAR Range Finder (RS), DJI Video Transmitter, and DJI RS 3 Pro together can consume up to 20 W of power.

When powered by the DJI RS 3 Pro battery grip, power supply may be insufficient.

To ensure a smooth user experience, these two accessories should not be used with DJI RS 3 Pro simultaneously.

FAQs
After lens calibration, what should I do if images are out of focus?

You can try the following operations:

1. Calibrate the lens again. Make sure the subject is in focus at 1 metre and at 4 metres.

2. A hood or matte box attached to the lens may obstruct LiDAR signals and result in images being out of focus. Try removing the hood or matte box and calibrating the lens again.

3. Longer lenses may also obstruct LiDAR signals and result in images being out of focus. Try changing to a shorter lens and calibrating again.
