The Benro RedDog R1 is a 3-axis motorised gimbal designed for camera up to 1.8kg. Simply mount and balance your camera and then let the Benro RedDog R1 do the hard work so you can capture ultra-smooth professional and cinematic video shots.
Designed for Cameras up to 1.8kg
With a maximum payload capacity of 1.8kg, the R1 supports a wide range of cameras like the Sony A6400, 6500, RX compacts series, Canon M series as well as the Panasonic G7, G85 and many more. An independent quick release plate allows you to quickly attach and remove your camera for fast steups.
Multiple Operating Positions
What makes the R1 so unique is its innovative swivel handle that can move seamlessly between an upright and low-angle underslung mode. Choose the right setup for your shot, to reduce the amount of strain on your body and enjoy improved ergonomics while shooting.
Compact and Travel Friendly
Another huge benefit of the swivel design is that it allows the gimbal to fold down more than traditional rigs, super convenient for transport. This combined with the lightweight construction, makes the RedDog R1 one of the more compact gimbals for travel videographers and filmmakers on-the-go.
4-Axis Control Joystick
On the handle is a four-way control joystick as well as a zoom rocker for lenses with a motor zoom function, record button and power button that provides extensive control over the gimbal, allowing you to make adjustments to your gimbal performance on-the-fly.
Up to 12-Hour Battery Life
Designed to provide up to 12 hours of operational time, the R1 uses two 3200mAh lithium ion batteries that can be easily recharged with the included USB charger. The batteries inside the gimbal can even be used to charge your camera by simply turning on the power supply to camera function in the Benro RedDog mobile app and connecting a compatible camera with the included cable.
Supports the Benro RedDog App
Like many of the other Benro RedDog models the gimbal has extra functionality unlocked by connecting it via Bluetooth to the RedDog app. The app allows you to calibrate the gimbal, modify the motors to suit the weight of your camera, and keep your firmware up to date.
Range of Operational Modes
When cycling between gimbal modes a multicoloured LED indicator shows which is selected. When it’s red the gimbal’s in horizontal follow mode and will follow left to right movements while ignoring tilt and roll movements. If it’s pink it is in universal follow mode and will follow both panning and tilting movements and with the app can also be set to follow the roll axis. A blue indicator shows that the gimbal is in locked down mode and will point the same direction regardless of movement.
1/4-inch Socket and Included Folding Tripod
At the base of the gimbal is a 1/4-inch socket that means you can mount the gimbal to a monopod or Boom pole for jib-like performance. The kit also comes with a folding tripod base that can double as a grip extension while also make it easier to initially balance the gimbal.
