Easyrig ERIG-MINIMAX overview

  • 1Description

Useful for documentaries, news, events, and more, the Easyrig Minimax is great for situations which require extensive handheld camera work with cameras weighing from 4.4 to 15.4 pounds. Rather than uncomfortably handholding your camera, supporting the weight with your arms, the Minimax redistributes the weight of your camera setup through the body harness. Taking the weight off your arms lets you hold the camera steady for longer periods of time without fatigue. An added bonus of the Minimax is increased stability in your shots. The support rope, while transferring the weight to the harness, also adds a point of contact, reducing vibrations.

The Minimax model features a redesigned spring system which results in smoother support rope movement with reduced friction. A conical wheel unrolls the rope with increasing force as the rope is unraveled. Additionally, an overload protection system will trip if the maximum weight capacity is exceeded. Another improvement included in the Minimax model is the pivoting upper arm brought down from the Easyrig 3 Cinema model. The pivot allows you to swing the camera to the side, or even have it sit on your shoulder.

    Easyrig ERIG-MINIMAX reviews

    Minimax is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes handheld easy We've only been using this product for a short period of time, but our initial reactions are very positive. We went with the brand name because you usually get what you pay for. The build quality seems solid, and we love that it's lightweight, quick to assemble, and to tear down. The case doubles as a backpack which we didn't realize when purchasing but we used it the first time out as we had a remote location. The unit definitely takes the strain out of holding a camera so that you can focus on the shot - more so than I thought it would. We use it with a modest RED Scarlet-W build and didn't have any problems with shooting for an extended period of time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST WHAT WE NEEDED !!! AWESOME !!! A MUST HAVE FOR US !!! I am so pleased with this purchase because it has already solved the issue of relieving the strain on my arms and my back, but most importantly finally allowing my wife to be able handle the weight of our gear with ease and now be able to help me film when I'm needing to be in the shots myself. Before she just could not handle the weight but for a minute or two, but now it's a breeze with this system. So thank you so much Easy-Rig for the new MINIMAX and thank you B&H for selling it to me. AWESOME!! JUST PLAIN AWESOME !!! !! I highly recommend it !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-get for long shoot days I'll admit I had this in and out of my cart several times as I couldn't decide how often I'd be using it.� But I finally pulled the trigger for a tough winter dogsled shoot I was commissioned to do.� Boy am I glad I got it.� Definitely wouldn't have been able to get these gimbal shots as I was precariously perched backwards on my knees in a moving sled. Not for walking (too much bounce) but SAVES YOUR BACK and is truly comfortable even after hours of use.� Like having a third arm :)��https://youtu.be/4fGBiIStNmU

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have for Camera Operators! This is the best support system that I've used with my C300 Mark II. It also works great with a Ronin and DSLR combo, and allows you to easily shoot all day by saving your back. It's also easy to travel with (comes with a nice, high quality bag) as it can be easily checked in or carried on a plane. The only downside as mentioned in other comments is the arm tends to swivel around when a camera is not attached and can easily bang into something and/or someone if you're not careful. I would highly recommend the easyrig!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes the rig easy Works as advertised. It's a great piece of equipment to add to the rigging options and it gives you a lot of flexibility. Now, on the looks front be prepared for a few laughs from crew and talent... but your body will thank you later, even if your pride doesn't.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for long shoot days. I used it for run and gun documentary set up on my fs7 package. I don't know how I shot without it before. The best reason to get an easyrig is to save your back! As an added bonus its a great support system to focus on the frame and not fighting the weight of the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product for medium sized cameras. This model Easy Rig is amazing. It's lightweight, comfortable and feels very solid. This is the first time I've ever owned a Easy Rig. I use it with my Red Scarlet W that is rigged to an average 10-12lbs and it's a lifesaver on my arms and back. You can easily keep the camera on and swap out a lens or make camera adjustments on the spot without having to put the camera down or hand it to an assistant. It's very versatile in movement and placement of the camera and I can literally wear it with the camera all day long. The only downside is, while the swivel movement for the arm is great in most cases with the camera on, there are times when swiveling is very awkward with the camera off. Say you take the camera off and you walk through a door to another room, and you forget the arm swivels, next thing you know the arm is banging into door jams or walls. So everytime I walk, without the camera on, I have to hold onto the arm above me to make sure it doesn't whip around and hit something. Other than that, it's an amazing investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back saver I purchased the easy rig for use with camcorders (C100 and EX1) and a TurboAce gimbal with Canon 70D. It works great in both applications. With the gimbal, it is very stable. Movement still needs to be a careful shuffle, not like a true (expensive) floating steadycam. Although the rotation on the arm can be helpful I would have liked to have a simple locking mechanism. A plastic hand clamp works well to keep from scratching the metal with vise grips. Tension changes needed for different weight setups require an assistant or taking the rig off to access the rope tensioner. Probably no way around that. Overall build and stability is great, well worth the price when it is needed. I'd recommend practicing with it before a serious shoot as getting seldom-used �back muscles in shape for sustained use is a good idea.
