The revolutionary e-Maxima 5.0 is the ultimate encoded fluid head designed specifically for the captivating world of Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality in Digital Cinematography
With its cutting-edge features, the Cartoni e-Maxima 5.0 sets a new standard in VR and AR applications. Equipped with ultra-precise 4 Million Count/Revolution absolute encoders for both Pan and Tilt, it does not require re-calibration on set up.
The encoded data is conveyed through binary code, interfacing with all renowned virtual engines and streams seamlessly into the Cartoni Virtual Box (available separately), alongside other metadata sourced from cameras and lenses.
The e-Maxima 5.0 connects directly to the encoder via Lemo connectors.
One of the standout features of the e-Maxima 5.0 is its patented counterbalance system, which flawlessly compensates the most demanding camera setups up to a staggering 57 kg (126 lb). Achieving the coveted “perfect balance” becomes second nature, thanks to the intelligent design that spans the entire 180° tilt range.
The patented continuous fluid drag system takes versatility and precision to new heights, providing a spectrum of drag options that range from almost freewheeling to exceptionally consistent. This ensures unparalleled adaptability, allowing filmmakers to effortlessly capture those perfect diagonal shots with absolute control.
When it comes to user comfort, the e-Maxima 5.0 leaves no room for compromise. The ergonomically placed knobs and levers guarantee complete ease-of-use for camera operators in any situation, be it in a studio, on location, or even during outdoor shooting. Digital displays meticulously monitor the drag and counterbalance settings, providing real-time feedback for precise adjustments. Furthermore, the large sliding camera plate is fully compatible with Arri, Sony, and O’Connor slides, ensuring seamless compatibility with a wide range of professional camera systems.
The e-Maxima 5.0 effortlessly interfaces with all flat base Mitchell tripods and platforms, offering unmatched versatility for various shooting scenarios.
The e-Maxima 5.0 represents a leap forward in technological camera support, blending innovation, precision, and user-friendly design into a single remarkable tool.
Prepare to unlock new creative horizons and embark on a thrilling journey with the e-Maxima 5.0, the ultimate companion for VR and AR cinematography.
