the versatile mini tripod for big camera rigs!
Max was successfully Kickstarter-funded in summer 2016 and has proven that powerful tools come in small packages. Larger than the Ultra—though still only the size of a tablet—Max supports heavier, larger gear. Don’t be fooled by Max’s slim stature—it will be the most reliable tool in your gear bag!
5-year warranty—Full replacement of parts for any defect in workmanship. Guaranteed to hold up to a 300-pound load!
SMALL FRAME, BIG SETUPS
Made of aircraft-grade aluminum and titanium, the 5mm-thick Max is perfect for heavy DSLRs and full-sized video cameras, large lenses, bulky flashes and accessories—up to 300 pounds. If your tripod ball head can support it, so can Max.
NO TOOLS, NO PROBLEM
Like the Ultra, Max is compatible with most standard tripod ball heads and screws on easily without the need for tools.
FOUR SPIKE FEET
Max comes with four “feet," which are adjustable screws that grip on uneven or rocky surfaces. You can use one, two, three, or all four depending on what you need. Each screw is 2 inches long with heavy-duty rubber caps and locking nuts.
THE ANATOMY OF MAX
