Popular budget accessories maker SmallRig announces DJI RS2 / RSC2 gimbals accessories including monitor mount, handgrip, and dual handles. Smallrig estimates pre-orders to start shipping in the last week of November.
Although not nearly as extensive as the Tilta DJI RS2 Accessories Ecosystem, the SmallRig accessories appear cover the basics at very reasonable prices.
To get up to speed on the features and capabilities of the latest DJI RS2 and RSC2 gimbals head over to our post here. See a summary of the latest SmallRig accessories for the DJI RS2 and RSC2 gimbals below.
SmallRig Sling Handgrip for DJI RS 2/RSC 2
A handgrip for under-slung or “briefcase” mode is one of the most essential gimbal accessories (for this style single-grip stabilizers). This way operators can get low-angle shots without putting too much strain on your arms and shoulders.
The new SmallRig Sling Handgrip can rotate 180 degrees offering you plenty of adjustment to suit your filming style. In addition, it mounts to either side of the gimbal via the NATO rail mounting ports. This will be of much interested to RS2 users, as those thinking of using the DJI RSC 2 actually have a similar functionality built-into the gimbal design.
You can pre-order it now from SmallRig for $48 (saving you about $12 off retail price).
SmallRig Dual Handgrip for DJI RS 2/RSC 2
- Pre-order for $79 USD (save $20 off) from Smallrig
Having the option to use a single-grip gimbal stabilizer with two hands, especially with heavier setups is sometimes a must. This way you can reduce arm fatigue and get more stable shots. The two handles mount to the NATO rail on each side of the gimbal, and by design you can use the gimbal in inverted mode – similar to the original DJI Ronin and Ronin MX.
Furthermore, the Dual Handgrip comes with multiple 1/4”-20 and ARRI 3/8”-16 mounting points for accessories. In addition, cold shoe ports can be used to mount microphones, wireless audio receivers and more.

SmallRig QR Plate with Arca-Swiss for DJI RS 2/RSC 2
Similar to the DJI-included QR plate, the SmallRig QR plate allows gimbal operators to use an Arca-Swiss standard L bracket and a cage on the gimbal. Thus, you can easily switch between tripods and gimbal. Unlike the DJI QR plate, the SmallRig QR plate has a gear adjustment on the Arca-Swiss plate for micro adjustments.
The quick-release plate is Manfrotto type with a built-in Arca-Swiss base, and it can be locked into place quickly by a thumbscrew without any tools.
You can pre-order it for around $24 USD from Smallrig’s website here.
SmallRig Extended Quick-Release Plate
And for those looking to use larger-than-DSLR or mirrolress cameras such as the RED Komodo, Canon C200, or the new EOS C70 for example (or anything similar for that matter) should check out the new Extended QR plate from SmallRig.
Also, those looking to use longer zoom lenses would benefit from the extended reach of this QR plate, which is about 40mm longer than the standard QR plate. Do note, that this Extended plate is for the DJI RS2 only. It is also compatible with counterweights.
- Designed for DJI RS 2
- Securely lock the camera via 1x 1/4”-20 and 1x 3/8”-16 screw to prevent twisting

SmallRig NATO Clamp Accessory Mount
This compact accessory enables gimbal operators to attach a monitor, a microphone, or a wireless receiver on the side of the stabilizer without adding too much bulk. The NATO clamp mounts directly to the side of the gimbal, and features a 1/4”-20 threaded hole and an ARRI 3/8“-16 locating mounting point.
Furthermore, the 1/4”-20 thread comes with a couple of locating holes which is compatible with DJI RS 2 smartphone mount. The integrated cold shoe can accomodate a compact mic or audio receiver like the Rode Wireless Go or similar. Moreover, this mount comes with an anti-removal stud on the NATO clamp to prevent accidental slippage and fall.
