The Platypod Pro Deluxe Kit with Ball Head and Smartphone Tripod Mount from B&H allows you to support your smartphone on both horizontal and vertical surfaces to capture clear and shake-free photos and video. It packages the Platypod Pro Deluxe Kit Camera Support with a ball head and a spring-loaded tripod mount for smartphones. The ball head features an Arca-type quick-release system, a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement. Three included rubber-tipped stainless steel spikes can be adjusted to level the camera support base on uneven surfaces, and four unthreaded holes accommodate zip ties to attach the base to surfaces such as a pipe or railing. The Deluxe Kit comes with a pillowcase sleeve for protecting the base and a four-compartment ballistic nylon case that can be worn on a belt, attached to a strap on a bag, or hung from the case's carabiner.
Please see the links below for more information on the components of this kit.
Platypod Deluxe Kit Camera Support
Platypod Pro Video
The Platypod Pro Deluxe Kit Camera Support allows you to support a tripod head, camera, and lens weighing up to 90 lb on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. Three included rubber-tipped stainless steel spikes can be adjusted to level the base on uneven surfaces, and four unthreaded holes can accommodate zip ties to attach the base to a support like a pipe or railing. The base can also act as a light support by attaching the included spigot for mounting an umbrella adapter.
The Deluxe Kit also includes a pillowcase sleeve for protecting the base, and a four-compartment ballistic nylon case that can be worn on a belt, attached to a strap on a bag, or be hung from the case's carabiner. The case can hold most standard ball heads, as well as the spikes and spigot that come with the kit.
Oben BE-117 Ball Head
Platypod Pro Video
The BE-117 Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight aluminum ball head that features an Arca-type compatible quick-release system. It has a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement.
The BE-117's multiple knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. Taking panoramic photos is simple, for instance, because you can pan a specific number of degrees while keeping the head's tilt position locked. In fact, the BE-117 features degree markings around its circumference to aid in that task. A notch in the ball head allows you to quickly change between portrait and landscape orientation.
The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw, and is secured in place with an Arca-type clamp. A locking knob controls the opening and closing of the aluminum clamp simply and reliably. Two safety screws on the bottom of the plate help prevent your camera from accidentally being released when adjusting the plate fore and aft. One bubble level on the clamp, and another on the locking knob, both ensure that your camera will be level with the horizon.

Take your smartphone photography to the next level with a Xuma Smartphone Mount. This mount fits devices 2.4 to 3.25" wide, holding them in place with a spring-loaded bracket with a rubber coating to protect your device's finish. It features three 1/4"-20 standard tripod threaded holes: one at the top, one at the bottom, and one on the back. This lets you mount your device to a tripod or monopod while still being able to attach 1/4"-20-compatible peripherals, like lights and microphones.
