Product Highlights
  • Designed for Vehicles with Small Windows
  • Lightweight Yet Stable Camera Support
  • Stabilizes Lenses Up to 800mm
  • 3/8"-16 Stud for Ball Head / Gimbal Head
  • High-Tack Finish Inside U Shape
  • Can Be Inverted for Use on Flat Surface

The Apex Low Profile Bean Bag (Realtree Max4) is a versatile, solid support for a camera, especially one mounted on a gimbal or ball head. This low-profile version of Apex's larger bean bags is designed for cars with smaller windows – it's an inch shorter than the Mini Bean Bag and a full 4" shorter than the standard Bean Bag. Providing a stable platform for attaching your ballhead or gimbal head, you can track, pan, and focus, smoothly and with ease.

Designed for DSLR cameras with lenses as long as 800mm, the Low Profile Bean Bag has a U-shape that makes it perfect for mounting on any narrow or round surface, such as a fence, a car door, or a tree branch. Inside the "U" is a high-tack surface that keeps it from slipping.

The Low Profile Bean Bag features an easily accessible fill zipper that allows you to customize the amount of filling that's inside the bag. A weather-resistant flap protects the zipper.

Inside the bag there's not only filling but an aircraft-grade aluminum plate that, with its 1/2"-long 3/8"-16 screw, supports the attachment of a head. (Each plate is hand-made in the U.S. with the help of a 100,000 lb press.) The plate is removable, so you can use the Low Profile Bean Bag as a traditional, soft bean bag support.

You can also invert the Low Profile Bean Bag to nestle a telephoto lens into the "U" portion, which is covered with a high-tack material to provide non-slip support. This is perfect for shooting from a flat surface such as a car hood or the ground.

Note! Filler not included.

The window-straddling design negates the need to purchase a bulky and heavy aluminum window mount
Tested to fit windows 15" (38.1 cm) tall and greater
The design of the versatile strap allows the bean bag to be securely fastened to a vehicle door handle, rail, beam, etc., and it offers an easy means of carrying the Low Profile Bean Bag
Designed and manufactured in the U.S.
Head Attachment 3/8"-16 stud
Dimensions (HxWxD) 7 x 7 x 12" (17.7 x 17.7 x 30.5 cm)
Weight 9 lb (4 kg) when full (filler not included)

        Comments about Low Profile Bean Bag (Black):

        By placing the bag on the vehicles window, gives great comfort and stability while photographing wildlife in their natural habitat. At 6'4" I stick out quite a bit, so hidden in my vehicle is a good blind. Easy zipper opening to fill the bag. Actual beans are quite heavy, try packing material like popcorn or peanuts for a lightweight support. Fill with birdseed to assist your attempt to bring the wildlife closer to you. Extremely heavy -duty construction, can be used for photography or target practice. Inverted and filled will support rifles with no problems. Can be attached to belt for easy transport.

              It is perfect for me in my car with the wimberly head on it. I filled mine with plastic pellets. That just seemed more sanitary than beans, rice or sunflower seeds. I was concerned with moisture issues with food products. It took around 11 pounds of plastic pellets. This is a very well made product. I tried to make one before purchasing this. Don"t waste your time and money on a do it yourself. These are far above what you can make.

                  I bought this unit so I could add a gimbal head and shoot eagles from my car. In the past if you stepped out they would fly off. Trying to shoot from car I had to hold it. With my new setup I've taken all thearm stain off my arms and have got several great shots. I would recommend this to anyone trying to use a larger lens.
