Crimson AV Pocket-eAzl and Photo-eAzl Folding Stands
Crimson AV sells professional Audio / Visual mounting equipment for home and industrial displays, including projectors, flat panel, and multi-monitor systems.
And for something totally different, Crimson also offers mini folding pocket-size stands, the Pocket-eAzl tablet stand and Photo-eAzl camera tripod.
What makes these different is that they come from the same heritage -- solid and rugged metal. These are made from aluminum-zinc alloy with hardened epoxy finish, with rubberized slip-free contact points for the legs and to support an inserted tablet. And yet they cleverly fold up to compact down to around 3 3/4 x 1 1/2 inches.
The Pocket-eAzl is a folding stand for tablets and e-readers, in landscape or portrait orientation.
It unfolds in three pieces from the center frame.
One side has two legs that fold over and spread out to provide a firm base, and the other side unfolds as the back support. The legs have ruggedized flip-out support for the base of the tablet.
The back piece provides dual-height positioning -- use it as is for a lower setup for typing, or the interior folds out to extent the support for a higher viewing angle.
The fully expanded base extends 8 inches from front to back, and is 5 inches high.
The Photo-eAzl expands the design to serve as a compact camera stand / tripod with adjustable shooting angles.
It adds another fold-out plate with a universal 1/4-20 mount head adapter, with a hinged footer that can be adjusted in notches on the center frame to provide multiple tilt angles.
You then can use the Photo-eAzl to hold cameras, camcorders, and pico projectors, up to 15 lbs. And, of course, you can still use it as a tablet stand.
The Pocket and Photo eAzl are smart and solid devices that fold down cleverly to impressively small sizes. The metal construction makes them rugged, though at some cost in weight -- the Pocket-eAzl is around 0.44 pounds. But your tablets or cameras certainly will be comfortably secure.
The Crimson AV Pocket-eAzl folding stand is available for around $25, and the Photo-eAzl is around $69.
