Easyrig logotype

The new spring system we developed has significantly resulted in a smoother running of the support rope : Refers to the beginning and end of the rope force. This is because we constructed a conical wheel that unrolls the rope. We have also reduced the friction through the entire support process in the new Minimax resulting in a much more fluid feel and operation.

The new Easyrig Minimax also has an overload protection system we have developed. If you over load the spring system a Tripping Mechansim will operate. Overload Protection is our own idea and development. It means the spring will not be broken if you use too heavy a camera.

Another difference from our previous model Easyrig Mini is the pivoting upper arm which is now similar to big brother Easyrig 3 Cinema.

The Easyrig Minimax has been created specifically with the latest generation of light weight cameras in mind and offers the same innovative features as its larger brother - The Easyrig.

The ergonomically designed Easyrig Minimax is the comfortable way to support your camera and eliminates the fatigue associated with long periods of hand held operation, it is the perfect partner for compact video cameras, video DSLRs and lightweight film cameras.

"When I first put on the Minimax and attached my camera it felt like I was actually using a Cinema 3. With the original Mini, one knew it was a lighter weight unit and also felt like it but that was ok as it was for light camera rigs."
