Axler RBNP-40L overview

  • 1Description

The Axler Robin Pro 40 Stabilizer L lets you capture smooth, free-floating handheld shots with camcorders and camera rigs weighing up to 15 pounds. The system employs a height-adjustable gimbal and two-stage center column for balancing heavier loads without increasing the weight of the stabilizer, letting you shoot for longer periods of time with less arm fatigue. Four segmented counterweights are included, which screw into sockets at the bottom of the stabilizer, providing weight compensation along two axes. Each counterweight consists of four separate pieces that screw into each other, letting you to add or remove weight along two axes as needed. This makes it easy to balance your camera rig even when the weight is unevenly distributed.

The camera platform features a quick release plate with fine-tuning adjustment knobs to help achieve optimal balance. Once balanced, the stabilizer isolates the camera from your body movements, letting you walk or even climb stairs, all while capturing smooth, elegant-looking footage. A durable nylon carry case is included for easy storage and transport of the stabilizer and counterweights.

Two-Axis, Multi-Piece Counterweights
The stabilizer makes it easy to balance your camcorder or camera rig, even if the weight is unevenly distributed. Four segmented counterweights are included, which screw into sockets at the bottom of the center column and offer weight compensation along two axes. Each counterweight consists of four individual pieces that screw into each other, letting you add or remove pieces one at a time to adjust and fine-tune the system's center of gravity.
Adjustable Gimbal
The height-adjustable gimbal can be positioned anywhere along the center column. This helps you balance heavier loads by moving the gimbal higher up on the column, reducing the amount of counterweight you need. Fewer counterweights means less stress on your arm, which results in longer shooting times before fatigue sets in.
Two-Stage Center Column
Before adding more counterweights to the stabilizer, you can extend the center column to help balance your camcorder. The stabilizer has a maximum extended height of 45" and a minimum height of 25.5".
Quick Release Plate with Fine-Tuning
A quick release plate provides a fast way to mount your camera on the stabilizer. Adjustment knobs let you fine-tune the forward/backward and left/right position of your camera to help achieve perfect balance. The plate is locked in place using a ratchet-style locking lever. The ratcheting feature lets you re-position the lever if your camera position prevents you from fully turning it.
Textured Rubber Grip
The stabilizer features textured rubber grip on the handle for comfort and to aid against slippage with sweaty palms. There is also rubber grip on the center-column twist-locks for easier tightening and loosening. The textured surfaces also make them easy to find in low-light situations.
Additional Features
  • Built-in bubble levels on the quick-release plate to assist with balancing
  • 1/4" and 3/8" threads on the stabilizer head for storing the 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera mounting screws when not in use
  • Padded carrying case included for easy transport and storage of stabilizer and counterweights

    Axler RBNP-40L reviews

    Robin Pro 40 Stabilizer L is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shows Promise, But Not Suitable for Impatient People The Axler Robin Pro 40 appears to be very well made and feels good in the hand. The parts work smoothly and there is no slack or play in the fittings. However, the documentation that shows how to set it up and balance it is a bit simplistic, and the Axler website is no help at all. It is quite a challenge to figure out (a) how much of the total counterweight to use for a given camera/lens load, (b) how to figure out the optimal relationship between the gimbal position and the length of the extendable counterweights, and (c) how to prevent swaying and twisting after achieving balance. YouTube is a fairly good resource, but BE PATIENT and experiment. This is not a tool that will give usable results right out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with my purchase I recently decided to upgrade and purchase the Axler Robin Pro 40 Stabilizer L and I'm very pleased to have done so. The stabilizer is a great weight and feel for my DSLR. While the Axler can support up to 15 pounds, the weight and feel of the stabilizer was easily adjusted to fit my needs by unscrewing each of the four counterweights on the base. Another thing I like about this Stabilizer is that it's versatile. The height-adjustable gimbal gives the range to really capture a number of different shots, as well as in using it as a monopod type tool. It's easy to fine tune and lock your camera into the stabilizer, and you can pop of the camera at anytime with the quick-release plate, which is great for run and gun projects. Like any new piece of equipment the stabilizer took a moment to get use to but very quickly I saw immediate improvement in my work. I've been able to get the smoother looking movements I was hoping for prior to the purchase.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No proper written/youtube instruction to balance it I think Axler needs to comprehensively document the process of balancing it.The instruction shipping with it is just a formality. There's nothing on internet for this brand as well. Nor even a youtube tutorial to balance it. Too hard for a beginner to learn balancing it as it always falls/spins either way. Lost hope using it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to video First let me say I'm new to video and just wanted to start using the video capabilities of my Canon6d on small (personal) projects. So I thought I was buying something to stabilizing the camera as I followed the action sort of like a monopod (with feet). for example the: Steadicam Solo Stabilizer & Monopod This item is definitely for more advanced video work and (from the U-tube videos I've seen on it) probably one of the best tools anyone doing serious video with a DSLR should have. I didn't return it because I haven't completely made up my mind as to how far I want to go into videography. but I can tell you that the quality of the product is first rate

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have Stabilizer For Any Professional B & H is as professional as it gets with camera gear. I work freelance as a Behind the Scenes shooter, as well as shoot passion projects, and wanted to up my stabilizer game. Not knowing too much about them, I sought out help from B & H's customer service. The employees I spoke to were very patient with me. Not only did they show me the different price ranges in their inventory, but they let me try out any one I wanted right then and there; showing me how to operate them. I was recommended the Robin Pro 40 by a friend and requested trying that one out next, I fell in love with it immediately. The four 15 pound (combined) weighted camera rigs can be adjusted to compliment the weight of your camera. Each rig additionally breaks and can be unscrewed piece by piece, giving you more freedom in matching your ideal weight. The handle rotation is flawless. You have a full 360 range. As you alter the positioning of your wrist by rotating the handle (keeping your other hand on the rig), the camera base stays stable. The camera base can additionally slides left to right giving you the ability to achieve your desired leveling of your camera. The camera base can also smoothly rotate and spin in a 360 degree motion. The Stabilizer also acts as a great tri-pod and can be adjusted vertically. As you adjust the height, you can also adjust the positioning of the handle giving you even more freedom for comfort. I'm a few days into my purchase of the stabilizer and I can't stop shooting with it. I shot footage for a cooking show web series. In shooting with this Robin, I was able to smoothly transition from a head on shot of the chef to an aerial shot of pan fry cooking with ease. I also shot behind the scenes work for a commercial and was able to weave through the studio while maintaining a steady stable wide angle shot of cast & crew members. Using the Robin 40 has also inspired me to shoot other content I likely wouldn't have considered otherwise, like skateboarding videos. I can't recommend this stabilizer enough. While there are still some techniques in transitions I am working on mastering, I am looking forward to working with the Robin on a daily basis. It also comes with a great travel bag.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quick release plate got stuck on first use... The quick release plate release uses a threaded mechanism. The first time I put a camera on it the thread jammed up. I think this is because a soft metal is used. If this had happened in the field I would have been in bad shape. I was forced to return the item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Functional- a great addition The Axler Robin for me was a very fun and jovial experience to use. Very well build and good construction. The fan favorite for me was the multiple weights that could be broken down and balanced with a lot of different combinations enough to remain versatile but not an impediment during a shoot. It is perfectly made for the use of a DLSR but I was even able to rig a bigger camera with relative ease. As far as stabilizers go this one has been my favorite to play with and to own. I used this over the course of a multiple day shoot on my university's highest budget production and it was able to handle the stress of the multi day shoots even if the grippers sometimes didn't haha.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes As many have said it is a little difficult to get used to walking and keeping it smooth. But I am getting better. It is a very good quality unit and I got it on the deal of the day so the price was very very good!. I us it mainly with my GH2 Panasonic camera and I really have been getting some good shots. Balancing as others have also said is a challenge but I put some tape marks on it and that has helped me speed things up a bit when balancing. Something to consider is to get a offset arm to put on the stand when balancing so the little feet don't hit the stand leg when balancing and setting up.
