About

No need any more to choose which tripod, rig, support or clamp to carry with you: Inuk replaces them all and fits in your pockets, combining lightness, versatility, ease of use plus the robustness of carbon fiber.

Product design

Flat legs and integrated foldable arms design (patent pending) replace traditional tripod tubular legs to reach unparalleled compactness with the additional possibilities of a video rig.

Inuk is truly pocket size! It goes easily in and out of pockets.


The rubber pad increases the grip of the cameras on the plate. Rubber feet at the bottom of the legs is soft and has a trapezoidal design to increase the grip on the base surface.

Pocketsize like a mobile phone when folded, it opens three legs and two foldable arms to accommodate up to an overall 1.5 kg payload with cameras such as:

  • VSLR
  • Mirrorless 
  •  Action cameras such as GoPro 
  •  Smart phones such as Iphone
  • Tablets 

along with accessories such as:

  • Lights
  • Flashes
  • Microphones 

Inuk is an open and expandable platform through the wide range of our accessories and connectors: ¼” -20 universal camera screw, smart phone and tablet clamp, GoPro adapter, mini ball head.

Prototypes

We produced several prototypes belonging to three different concepual stages:  concept proof, first stage, second stage. Here a prototype stage 1 (below) and one of stage 2 (above with smartphone and light mounted) are framed. Prototypes stage 1 were too small and legs were not angled properly.

The first "concept proof prototype" was made of cardboard (!) and served to develop the initial ideas: the position of the hinges, the opening of the legs, etc.. (see CAD kinematics below).

Special attention and study has been dedicated to rubber at the end of feet to improve grip on surfaces.

Timeline

We schetched a robust plan from idea generation to delivery. Since we have brought to live many project more complicated than Inuk before, we are pretty confident the following timeline can be respected.


Team

Inuktech Srls is a start-up camera gear company based in Italy. Founded in 2018 by a team of video-photography enthusiasts and professionals, former Manfrotto Support managers. We combine technical, manufacturing and product development experience to create innovative, exciting, high standard video - photo gears at affordable prices for amateur and professional video and photo lovers.

Additional information at our web site: https://inuktech.it

Stretch goals

Future accessories and add-ons are already in development (dolly, slider and pulleys) that will further expand Inuk’s capability to cover a broader range of applications. 

Dolly will be the first development: thanks to the pivoting wheels it will be possible to execute straight and curved trajectories at a certain fixed angle or even follow a track with different orientations!

Add-ons

The inuk kits already offer many accessories, others will be created if the project is funded, but we want to show two that we think you may be interested in: a set of professional suction cups (offered in Video Maniac Pro Kit) and a polo shirt with our funny little man (offered in Giftable Kits) .

Professional suction cups make it easy to mount your Inuk on almost any smooth surface: surfboards, motorcycles, wakeboards, ATVs, helmets, windows and more with 6mm mounting screw. 

Main features are: powerful vacuum grip,   quick lock/release lever, 360° dual pivot point.

Risks and challenges

Creating a new product always involves uncertainties about time and cost that are to a certain measure not be foreseeable. To minimize these uncertainties we have placed, at every stage of development, especially during testing phases, the utmost attention to aesthetic and functional details, so as to arrive at a stable product, built for the most part with the final materials.
Photos and videos on this site depict the real product in action: prototypes used in the campaign might be subject to minor adjustments if improvement with either stability, versatility, design or overall use of the product can be found helpful.
The founders of Inuktech have been designing and manufacturing high-precision mechanical objects for more than 25 years, some of us have played important roles in Manfrotto, the world leader in video and photo supports, we have a complete supply chain, reliable and proven by many years of collaboration. We have designed an entirely mechanical product and this reduces the typical problems of an electronic product or application. We’re ready to source materials, toolings and start production of Inuk as soon as the campaign ends.
Our first professional rule is to have respect for our customers because they are the reason why we do what we do with extreme pleasure. We want others to experience the emotions we feel by using the products we invented to improve our videos and photos. We are therefore committed to keeping you up to date we planned on realistic data and estimations and keeping to the limits of our capabilities with the delivery times we have communicated to you. We believe in transparency and we’ll try to answer all your questions on time.
