We are a startup in Grieskirchen, Austria and have been working on the Lumapod since 2016.
As passionate amateur photographers we love to travel. We always pack a tripod, planning to capture all the great moments from our trip, however the tripod often never leaves the suitcase. The assembly and disassembly of the tripod is just too time-consuming for every individual photo we want to capture. Too many handles, locks and adjustments are needed. It got to the point that we considered not bringing a tripod at all because aside from never wanting to use it, it took up a large portion of our suitcase. We wondered why all tripods work the same and questioned why they all have to be so bulky to carry and time-consuming to setup. Then, after a road trip through Iceland in 2016, Martin made the decision enough was enough and it was time to design an entirely new tripod. One which is easier, smaller and above all else quick to setup, so people can capture every great moment from their travels.
