Single-handed motorised stabiliser gimbals seem to be coming thick and fast and it’s no surprise once you see how they can transform your footage. The Benro RedDog R1 is one of the most impressive yet, being lightweight, relatively inexpensive and packed with features. There’s a lot to like from the outset. Strip away the cardboard packaging and a semi-hard transport case is revealed. Inside neatly laid out is the gimbal itself, bar a charge and balance all set and ready to use.
The design isn’t as finessed as the likes of the DJI Ronin-S, but then this is a far lighter weight product so doesn’t need the muscle. It’s designed for Mirrorless cameras, unlike the Ronin-S which can hold more than most owners
- The Benzo red-dog 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 Benzo 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. Ideal for cameras up to 2.9 lbs. the R1 features CNC machining with an innovative design. Its collapsible handle makes it perfect for traveling light. The r1's ergonomic silicon grip provides comfortable handling at all times. By turning the button on the handle you can quickly and easily convert your R1 from high angle to low angle mode making it simple to track low moving objects or achieve a low 360 Degree shot comfortably by putting less strain on your wrist and giving you incredible results. With a 13-hour battery life the R1 is to keep up with you during the most extensive days of shooting. With the multi-functional camera control you can easily select and control your desired camera movements. By pressing down on the mode/on side button function you can switch between different shooting modes. With universal follow mode (pink) it provides smooth camera movements towards the direction your aiming. You would use this mode when circling around a subject or making several Dynamic camera movements following a subject. Locked-down mode (blue) keeps the camera locked on a subject while moving the gimbal. With this mode you can replicate movements similar to a jib or slider. Horizontal follow mode (red) provides smooth movement based on where you move the camera horizontally. You would use this mode when doing a lot of Dynamic panning movements around corners. By using the directional button in conjunction with these modes you can flawlessly control your movements.
