Benro Announces Availability of the New RedDog R1 Stabilizer
The Benro RedDog R1 is a 3-axis gimbal stabilizer with a unique swivel handle designed for different filming angles and compact for travel.
Unlike other gimbal stabilizers, which allow for straight holding only, the Benro R1 allows for both Upright and Carry handling modes.
Upright Mode is suitable for high angle and medium angle filming.
Carry Mode is best for low angle filming.
Combining these options will help you get the most out of your stabilizer.
"The R1 has a great balance to it especially when using the swivel handle for waist height and low to the ground shots.
It is much more comfortable to hold and operate for long shoots or multiple takes and we think that today’s filmmakers and content creators will love this unique feature," says Brian Hynes, Benro’s USA Brand Manager.
Ideal for cameras up to 2.9 lbs, the R1 features CNC machining with an innovative design.
It’s collapsible handle, makes it perfect for traveling light.
