The DSLR Runner and Gunner rigs from IndiePro Tools are both lightweight camera rigs that help to steady your shots while shooting video. The rigs can be adjusted from any of the 3-axis on the rig and is built on a 15mm rod platform. Both the handle grips and shoulder support can be adjusted via tension knobs. There are also ratcheting levers on the units that allow for quick adjustments and repositioning. Both rigs come with a 3X magnification LCD viewfinder. A few things to point out are that both of these rigs work best with lighter camera setups. There are no dedicated areas to mount a follow focus or really build onto a basic setup. If the rig becomes too heavy, it will not be as effective since there are no counter weights in the rear.
In the video shown, I’m using the Runner with Canon’s T4i with a 40mm pancake lens. This setup was perfect for me and I didn’t experience any fatigue or excessive shakiness with the camera. I also point out the multiple points of contact that I have with the rig, viewfinder and camera. These variables help in steadying shots.
The Gunner has two hand grips to increase stability, where the Runner is nice for quick shooting on the go.camera rig, camera stabilizer, DSLR rig, gunner, IndiePro Tools, IndiePro Tools Gunner, indiePro Tools Runner, rig, runner
