Gatorbuddy from Matthews Studio Equipment

Aug 7, 2023

Gatorbuddy was designed by a photographer as a better way to handle the bounce and fill cards that are a mainstay on photo shoots. It can also help create instant walls and dividers, and be equipped with a laptop for use as a portable viewing station. Gatorbuddy contains a rugged wheeled base with a low centre of gravity that keeps it stable. With a stable steel base and four Tente caster wheels, Gatorbuddy glides, and swivels then locks safely in place. Like a dolly, it can help move panels and V-Flats easily in and out to swap backgrounds.

Gatorbuddy ships complete with rolling base, three baby risers, and two V-Flat holders that are attached with three washers, 3 screws, and one pin. Gator Board / V-Flat not included.
