The first to be announced in the new series is the Benro RedDog R1
To meet the needs of aspiring filmmakers and bloggers Benro has announced a new range of three-axis electronic gimbals. The first model in the new series is the Benro RedDog R1, which is available now at a price of £350.
The RedDog R1 weighs 879g (without batteries) and is ideal for mirrorless camera systems, with the ability to hold up to 1.8kg of weight. It offers functionality to operate shutter and video on/off on Panasonic and Sony models, and will also allow you to control the zoom of Sony Power Zoom lenses.
Key features include a swivel handle which is designed to allow filming from different angles and also makes the gimbal compact for travelling with. It offers three shoot modes: Locked-Down Mode, Horizontal Follow Mode and Universal Follow Mode, and is also compatible with the Benro RedDog App allowing you to remotely control the gimbal and upgrade firmware.
Its battery life is stated as being able to last for 12 hours on a full charge, which takes only three hours, and it also comes with a Quick Storage Case for quick and easy set-up.
