FAQ (Frequently asked questions)
Q: I need a part for my Easyrig urgently, can I buy directly from you?
A: Before contacting us, we suggest that you look for an Easyrig Agent in your country. You will get your parts faster this way. If the part is not available, we will help you.
Q: Are there different types of Easyrig?
A: We currently have five different systems:
Easyrig Vario 5 (5-17kg / 11-38lbs)
Easyrig Vario 5 Strong (14-25kg / 30-55lbs)
Easyrig 3 200N, 300N, 400N, 500N, 600N, 750N, 900N, 1000N & 1200N.
Easyrig 2.5 200N, 300N, 400N, 500N & 600N.
Easyrig MiniMax (2-7kg / 4.4-15.5lbs)
All of these systems (also referred to arms/power packs) can be mounted to any of our vests. If you happen to have an older model of Easyrig than the systems mentioned above, we can still help you with spare parts.
Q: How many type of vests do you have?
A: We have six different vests available: Cinema, Gimbal Rig, 2.5 vest, Cinema Flex, Gimbal Flex and the MiniMax vest (only for the MiniMax system).
You can mount any arm/power pack to all of our vests, the way it is attached to the vest has a universial solution.
Q: What is the difference between the upper arms?
A: We have three different options:
Standard, +130mm(5”) and +230mm(9”)
The +230(9”) arm comes with a steel mid-tube unlike the standard or the +130mm(5”) which comes with an aluminum mid-tube. If you have a Serene arm mounted, you need to have a steel tube.
Q: What is the difference between the lower arms?
A: The main difference is length, we have three kind of arms:
Standard (600mm/23.6”), Gimbal Rig length (800mm/31.5”) and MC-arm length (1000mm/39.37”).
The Easyrig Vario 5 & MiniMax do not have lower arms, they have so called ”Power Packs”. These can be slightly adjusted vertically.
Q: How many different bags do you have?
A: When ordering an Easyrig, you can chose whichever bag you want, if nothing is specified it will be supplied with a bag suited to the rig you have ordered.
We have six different kind of bags:
”Standard” bag (For Easyrig 2.5, Cinema 3/Cinema Flex with standard and +130mm(5”) arm. As well as MiniMax w/ Cinema Flex vest )
”Plus” bag (for Rigs with Serene and +230mm(9”) arm)
”King” bag (for Vario 5 in combination with a Gimbal Rig vest and +230mm(9”) arm)
”Queen” bag (for Vario5 in combination with Cinema or Gimbal Rig vest with standard and up to +130mm(5”) arm)
”Big Bag” (fits all the models and extensions with or without Serene arm, can be used as a backpack as well)
”MiniMax” bag (a smaller bag designed for the MiniMax system)
Q: How much power (Newton) do I need on my shock absorber?
A: To find out what shock absorber you need, you have to weigh your camera with all the accessories. Once you have done that, take a look at the chart below.
Q: I can only find MiniMax on your website, where is Mini / Mini Strong?
A: We do not sell Mini / Mini Strong anymore. We highly recommend you to upgrade your old Mini system to a MiniMax.
Q: Does my Easyrig need any maintenance?
A: Yes, we recommend you to check your Easyrig every once in a while to see if it is working as intended. If you want to stay on the ”safe side”, change the rope in your Easyrig once every five years. You may have to change the line more often if you are a Rental Company.
