Axler PSR-44 overview

  • 1Description

The 4 x 4' Axler Portable Medium Duty Shooting Riser allows event photographers and videographers to rise above crowds or barriers and get an unobstructed view of all the action.

Carry it with you to any location in the included carry cases, set it up in about a minute without any tools, and climb right on top along with your tripod and camera.

Measuring 4 x 4', the Shooting Riser is large enough to provide the needed support, but has a relatively small footprint for when space is at a premium. Also, multiple units can seamlessly be placed together to offer an expanded area.

The riser provides 39" of height elevation and supports up to 450 lb, and the overall aluminum construction provides sturdy support. There is also a leveling foot on the bottom of one of the legs that is twist-adjustable to compensate for uneven surfaces.

When you're done, simply pack it away piece by piece. It features only a few components: folding legs, two support rails that secure on the edges of the legs, and four platforms that sit on the rails. The legs pack away into a slim bag, and the other components into a separate, larger case. Both cases have padded carrying straps.

    Axler PSR-44 reviews

    Portable Medium Duty Shooting Riser (4 x 4') is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar Platform My church has me sporadically film certain service events throughout the year.  In the past Ive filmed off of apple boxes for the camera rig and me standing on a 20 tall Wagner platform step ladder.  Even after using a number of high visibility green traffic cones to direct human traffic flow around me, more than a few people would walk right into my tripod/camera rig and on more than one occasion almost knocked everything over.  I purchased the Axler PSR-44 to remedy the safety issues of shooting off of apple boxes on a non-controlled set.  This platform is billed as a Medium Duty platform and that is a spot on assessment.  It is intended to be used on a level--or near level--surface.  I wouldnt recommend using this on uneven terrain unless you had a grip truck full of apple boxes and shims and some staking to level it out and to secure it.  I weigh 190 pounds and my tripod/camera rig is 30 plus pounds and on an interior floor the Axler platform feels rock solid.  I chose the 4 X 4 model because of my Cartoni tripod footprint being on the larger size.  There is still ample room left over to operate the camera within the remaining space.  The three big PROs on this platform are simplicity,  portability and price point. The riser is super simple to assemble.  It just doesnt get any easier than this.  Everything collapses down to two soft cases (included with purchase):  the collapsed legs fit in a 58 L X 6 W X 6 H case; platforming fits in a 49 L X 9 W X 13 H case.  This makes for easy storage in our facility when not in use. If you plan on transporting a PSR-44 make sure your vehicle has enough space to accommodate the length of the bags.  For price point, I think this model offers incredible value at an exceptional price.  I considered the 3 X 3 PSR-33 platform, but it just didnt have enough real estate for my tripod and a camera op.  If you plan on elevating a tripod/camera rig only and/or shooting with a monopod the 3 X 3 should be ideal and it only weighs in at 39 pounds (22 pounds lighter than the 4 X 4).  But even weighing in at 61 pounds the PSR-44 is still incredibly portable.  The only CON that I have with the platform is that it can generate very minor noise if you shift around much on it.  Thats not an issue if youre shooting B-roll or have a camera feed for audio from a board or mixer.  But if youre using an onboard camera mic, you might detect some faint platform noise in your audio mix.  I resolved this issue by using one or two heavy duty sound blankets and anchoring my tripod legs down with 15 pound BOA shot bags.  That resolved all noise issues while filming.  This likely wont be an issue if youre shooting in a loud environment with lots of ambient noise even if youre using an onboard camera mic.  Standing still there are absolutely no sound issues to be concerned about.  At the time of my purchase this product was so new I could only locate one online review (a 5 Star review).  I decided to make a Vegas purchase and roll the dice.  Im glad I did.  This platform met all of my expectations and it beats the pants off of shooting on apple boxes.  Axler got this right for a Medium Duty platform.
