Tilta has announced DJI RS 2 accessories ecosystem including car mounts and handheld accessories taking your gimbal work to a new level.
To catch up with all the new features of the freshly announced DJI RS 2 and RSC 2 gimbals, do head over to our blog post here.
The new collaboration between Tilta and DJI takes the RS 2 and RSC 2 and makes these incredible gimbals ready for professional film sets. And as such, Tilta and DJI have been working together since the development phase of the RS 2 to enable the seamless integration of these accessories with the new generation of Ronin gimbals.
Furthermore, Tilta say DJI has officially authorized them with to develop protocols for all the peripheral interfaces. In addition, their new RS 2 accessories have been carefully tested by the DJI engineering team. Also, Tilta have put these new accessories through a series of test and development shoots to improve their design, operation, and durability.
There’s a lot to unpack, so sit tight, get a cup of coffee or tea, and dive into the Tilta Ecosystem for DJI RS 2.
Advanced Rear Operating Handle for DJI RS 2
The inherent design of the RS 2 (and original Ronin S) makes it cumbersome to use with heavier payloads unless you attach either a dual handle, a ring, or a back handle. Luckily, Tilta has you covered on all these fronts.
Their new Advanced Rear Operating Handle has been custom made for the new design of the RS 2. Furthermore, it can control the gimbal remotely and also supports video recording, stills, follow focus, when paired with the TILTA Nucleus-M or Nucleus Nano.
Needless to say, a back handle such as this helps you get low-angle shots much easier compared to just using a single grip.

For extended periods of filming and using zoom lenses or larger cameras a ring of some sorts can go a long way. The Tilta Advanced Ring Grip gives cinematographers extended functionality for all sorts of filming styles.
In addition, it provides handy access to gimbal joystick control, start/stop, mode switching as well as follow focus and zoom control with Nucleus-M and Nucleus-Nano.
