The flat tripod for big camera rigs!
Max is flat and light. At the size of a mini tablet and only 13 oz, Max fits in any camera bag. Max is for large equipment, like DSLR and video cameras with long telephoto or the heavy macro lens.
Max proves that powerful tools come in small packages. Larger than the Ultra—though still only 5.25” x 7.75” and 5 mm thick. —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! To back it up, we provide a 10 year warranty.
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 needed.
Max is compatible with most standard tripod ball heads and screws on easily without the need for tools.
Max has feet.
Four legs that grip on uneven or rocky surface. Use the spikey ends for hard surfaces or rubber ends on furniture.
Max comes with four stainless steel screws that are 2 inches long with heavy-duty rubber caps and locking nuts.
- Use one feet for grip on uneven surfaces.
- Use two feet to hang on objects like rocks. Even vertical objects like fences and car windows.
- Use three feet on really uneven surfaces.
- Use four feet to spike Max into soft surfaces, like grass and sand.
If you need some height, strap Max to a object. Although Max doesn't come with a strap, it is compatible with any belt or use the strap from the optional Accessory Kit.
TIP - screw one of the spikes in a bit to take any tension out of the strap.
