My name is Max and I design and build photographic gadgets in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Every gadget is made to order with the latest improvements.  Have a problem you believe could be fixed with a special device?  Let me know, maybe I can help.

Maxotics gadgets are available on Amazon, search “Maxotics”.  I also accept PayPal. Questions/suggestions always welcome.  Contact me at max at this website name.

DigiTiler P – For Ricoh GR

Allows you to take 2 to 15 shots with your Ricoh GR without worrying about parallax problems. A super light-weight gadget for creating partial panorama images. A 15 image stitch will give you about 300 megapixels. Stitching software not included (I recommend Microsoft ICE for PCs).  Still improving, so what you order should look better than what’s in the photos! Please contact me with any questions!  Photos that I’ve taken with this thing are in a Flick Album Here.  Explanations etc in YouTube video here.

Available on Amazon
