I just got the RS3 Pro and was disappointed to find that my Nikon Z camera is not supported for Bluetooth operation.

Does anyone know if there is a roadmap for expanding Bluetooth compatibility in coming firmware updates for Nikon cameras?

The current list is basically a handful of Sony, Canon and BlackMagic only models which seems quite limited in terms of using a feature that is heavily marketed as a key selling point for buying this gimbal.

And before anyone jumps in and says that it is a limitation of Nikon Z cameras not supporting Bluetooth shutter operation, this is incorrect.

This function works fine with the SnapBridge app over Bluetooth, so for DJI not to implement this and blame the camera's incompatibility is rather lame.

Same question and request for me......

The Z9 is very impressive in video and WE NEED to have an update from DJI for the RS3 Pro .

It doesn't make any sens since the bluetooh work with snapbridge apps ..

I too was disappointed by this with the GH5. The camera has Bluetooth capability, just not with the Ronin RS3 Pro.

To add to my frustration, there seems to be an issue with the DJI camera control cable connecting the GH5 to the gimbal. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it seems to just lose its connection.

Hi

I recently bought the DJI RS3 & I'm having trouble activating it, the thing is the gimbals Bluetooth isn't picking up on my phone at all, do I return it or is there a way for it to pick up on my phone so I can activate and use it already.

Hi

I have the same supportproblems with my Sony FDR-AX700. I waiting since the release of the RS3Pro. nothing.... It is not important enough to expand the support for the "normal" users of a 1000 bucks DJi Item.

I see that some more Panasonic and Fujifilm cameras have received added Bluetooth compatibility recently.

DJI seem unwilling to reveal a roadmap of when Nikon Z cameras will be added.

If Nikon will not release a public API can DJI not reverse engineer a hack to bypass the Bluetooth encryption?

Surely, not all the other Bluetooth-supported camera models listed for the RS3 Pro received full API support from their manufacturer for DJI to get them working.

If that were so, then why aren't all Sony, Panasonic and Canon models fully Bluetooth-supported that have this hardware feature? I see there are many Sony, Panasonic and Canon cameras that have Bluetooth hardware which is not supported by DJI. This would indicate that even these manufacturers did not 'give' their permission with a public API.

There are a LOT of Nikon Z users out there that are waiting on this feature to roll out.

It would really make the user experience much more seamless.

Wish I would have found this discussion before purchasing a RS3 Pro yesterday to use with my Z9. I was looking forward to using Bluetooth… guess usb-c it is.

Your UNhelpful comment is wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to begin, but 'arrogance' and 'fan boy' are a good start.

For those that read your comment, just ignore our moral superior – Benno Z – and continue letting DJI know about missing support/functionality for numerous USEFUL, recent and worthy cameras DJI already 'supports'...even their RS 2 supports cameras like the new Nikon D780, but totally missed it/them during the RS 3 release. Ouch!

Hey DJI, how about listing (in plain view; no searching required) the supported cameras on/at your POP (point of purchase) vendors/outlets prior to (or during) the time of sale, instead of JUST weight limitations? Sure, you'd lose more sales, but you'd also upset a lot less customers.

Sorry if you didn’t understand my message. Of course it’s strange DJI does not support all camera’s but I really don’t understand why you buy a device which doesn’t work with your camera??? That’s not very smart in my opinion. So I wonder why you still bought it.

Actually it does work. Just not through bluetooth. Can anyone tell if the "record" button works now if Nikon Z is connected to an external recorder (I use Ninja V)? It still doesn't work on my RS2 Pro even with the latest firmware updates.

I got my Nikon Z6ii to work with bluetooth functionality with my RS3.  The trick is setting the RS3 up as a bluetooth remote and thru the ML7 remote menu. It enables record start/stop wirelessly and works fantastic with touch screen auto focus on the nikon.

I own both Panasonic LUMIX S5 and S5II cameras and none of them can connect to my brand new RS3 Pro via bluetooth. DJI websites says they're compatible so it just drives me crazy...

Can you explain further how to set this up? Also will it work with the Z9 yet? I have both Z6ii and Z9 so any help to walk me through it would be great! I was looking forward to Bluetooth connection but can’t figure it out

I’ve been a long time user of DJI Ronin Gimbals too. So disappointing that they have not updated the Bluetooth functionality of the RS3 Pro to work with my Z9’s and Z8’s. I’m tired of breaking USB-C cables. Does anyone know of an alternate gimbal that does support Bluetooth operation?
