How fast is it?
With its speed of 120 cm/min, Tripod X is the fastest moving motorized tripod in the world, and from our perspective, it's the fastest of any tripod. Let us explain why.
Imagine the struggle of adjusting a traditional tripod: the constant battle of loosening and tightening numerous clamps, the frustration that builds with each minute. After painstakingly adjusting the height, you're faced with the daunting task of re-leveling the camera, a process often marred by endless tweaking of leg lengths. Picture yourself contorting into uncomfortable positions, the strain on your back and legs as you attempt to achieve the perfect balance, especially when using a bowl head. This ordeal requires not just precision, but also a dance of tightening and loosening, often leaving you second-guessing your adjustments.
The true agony lies not just in the complexity of these adjustments but in the precious moments lost - moments that could be spent capturing the perfect shot. Each second spent wrestling with clamps and levels is a second stolen from your creativity. The physical toll is just as taxing, with your body bearing the brunt of non-ergonomic postures, leading to aches and strains that linger long after the shoot.
This is the harsh reality of using a regular tripod, a reality where convenience is sacrificed at the altar of manual labor. But with Tripod X, this narrative changes. You're liberated from the chains of cumbersome adjustments, from the physical and emotional toll of traditional tripods. Experience the freedom and ease that comes with Tripod X - where every adjustment is a breeze, saving you from the agony and letting you focus on what truly matters: your art.
How light is it?
We believe that Tripod X is the lightest tripod in the world, and here’s why we think so: While we understand that weight is a crucial factor in the global tripod market, we also believe that the introduction of a motorized tripod should change some paradigms. The weight of tripods is significant when carrying and setting them up. Since carrying a tripod can be done 99% of the time with wheeled vehicles, no matter its weight, it can be done in an extremely ergonomic way, and we don't think the weight significantly affects its portability. However, the weight becomes much more critical during setup and balancing. This is because users often engage in dangerously ergonomic postures and strains while setting up (raising and balancing) their tripods. Thus, even if a tripod is lightweight and was bought for that feature, its adjustment process can be very uncomfortable and difficult, leading users to avoid multiple angle adjustments and stick to single plan shots on set. They miss out on capturing creative angles due to the weight and difficulty of their tripods. Tripod X weighs 9 kg, but when raising and leveling it, you don't have to deal with this weight. The experience of adjusting its height, as light as a feather, opens up opportunities for you to explore new angles and capture more creative shots. That's why, in our view, Tripod X is the lightest tripod in the world.
How quiet is it?
Tripod X only uses its high-torque motors when adjusting height and leveling. So, like any other tripod, it is completely silent during shooting. Since tripods are always adjusted between takes, not during live recording, the noise level of Tripod X becomes a non-issue. Any noise it produces during adjustments — about 60 decibels (dB) at a meter's distance — can be further reduced by lowering the speed of Tripod X.
What happens when the battery of Tripod X runs low?
Tripod X is equipped with a battery life that ensures reliability, even on your busiest days. You can always monitor the battery level on the device's display, which gives you ample time to prepare for any low battery situations. When the battery drops to a critical level, Tripod X emits audible warnings during height adjustments. At this stage, supporting the weight during height adjustments can help conserve the remaining battery life. If the battery level falls to a critical point, Tripod X disables the height adjustment feature and reserves the remaining power for shutting down, ensuring you can close Tripod X without any issues.
If you try setting up a timelapse when the battery is nearing its critical level, Tripod X will provide a warning. Should you continue with the timelapse under low battery conditions and the battery falls to a critical level mid-process, Tripod X will save the current state of the timelapse and shut down. You can then resume the timelapse from the saved point once the battery is replaced.
