3-axis gimbal stabilizer with a swivel handle that supports two usage modes: upright and carry. A button on the stabilizer's handle enables users to rapidly switch from upright to carry mode for shots at waist height and lower. When not in use, the R1's handle collapses for enhanced portability.
The RedDog R1 features a CNC-machined body and support for cameras weighing up to 2.9lbs / 1.3kg, as well as a silicone grip, up to 12 hours of battery life per charge, and an included quick storage case. The device is calibrated and updated using the Benro RedDog mobile app, which also works as a remote control.
The stabilizer offers three shooting modes: Universal Follow, Locked-Down, and Horizontal Follow. With these, users can set the stabilizer to keep the camera locked on a subject while ensuring movements are smooth and stable. Other features include a directional button, threaded receiver for attachments, and a 1/4"-20 threaded hole for mounting the stabilizer on a tripod.
A Gimbal Stabilizer Unlike Any Other
Other gimbal stabilizers only allow for upright holding, the Benro R1 features both Upright and Carry modes. Upright Mode is suitable for high and medium angle filming while Carry Mode is best for low angle filming. Combining these options gives you all the flexibility to tell your story in the most cinematic way.
Two Carry Positions for Maximum Adaptability and Comfort
By turning the button on the handle, you can quickly convert your R1 from Upright (high angle) to Carry (low angle) mode. This puts less strain on your wrist when tracking low moving objects and delivers incredible results. The ergonomic, silicon grip provides added comfort at all times.
