Platypod Pro Max Overview

The Platypod Pro Max Camera Support is a wide, stable, and ultra low-profile platform that allows you to set up a large tripod head, camera, and lens on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Measuring 5.3 x 7.8" and only 0.2" thick, the Pro Max Camera Support allows you to photograph or record with a camera that is elevated only slightly higher than the tripod head it is used with. Four reversible, spiked feet that each feature rubber tips on one end can be distributed among five strategically placed, 1/4"-20 threaded holes. Once installed, they can be adjusted to level the platform on uneven surfaces, both indoors and out. For placement on unconventional surfaces and angles, two 2" belt slots allow the Pro Max Camera Support to be secured to a cylindrical object or to be taped onto angled floors. Two nail holes are included for permanent or semi-permanent mounting to walls, boards or ceilings; and for quick placement and removal from conventional tripods or quick release devices, 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes are on the underside of the platform.

When the spike feet and their locking nuts are not in use, a magnetized storage box holds them against the top of the Platypod Pro Max Camera Support. Able to hold up to 300 lb, the Platypod Pro Max Camera Support accepts tripod heads with 3/8"-16 mounts, and is constructed from anodized, aluminum-alloy for durability and corrosion resistance.

Will this work with a 400 f2.8 mounted on a gimbal?
Asked by: Brian
I would doubt this will work properly with a 400mm and a gimbal, too top heavy and unstable.

Which of these is better for use with an Olympus ...

Which of these is better for use with an Olympus EM-1 with medium to bigger sized lenses? I'm worried about lack of stability with the ultra, but overkill with the max. I do plan on using heavier lenses as time goes on, and may upgrade camera systems in the future.
Asked by: Blake
I would go with the Max, it is not overkill for what you’ve got or will have. Great tool, I enjoy mine, not an everyday used item but it does have some very unique abilities. Very well made and designed. I got the Oben BE-117 later but I see they now offer it with Max, great little arca ballhead. I’d also get the accessories for $15. I’d buy with confidence and enjoy!

question

If mounted on it's side. will the weight of a long lens cause the tripod head to loosen from the plate? (unscrew, the 3/8 - 16 joint) This will only happen in one direction.
Asked by: Mike S.
I use a Manfrotto ball head which has ridges on the bottom for set screws found on Manfrotto tripods. So I drilled and tapped my Platypod for a similar set screw. Now it does not unscrew unless I intend it to.

question

Will i be able to use a Canon 1dx in a vertical orientation with the oben ballhead it is bunfled with?
Asked by: Joey
I bought an L bracket so that it's very easy to have it in either orientation. I use a Gitzo ballhead for info but this is irrelevant if using an L bracket

question

Will the Platypod pro max support a canon 5DMK 1V with a Canon 11-24mm F4 lens aprox 1100gr with an RRS BH 55 600gr aprox ball head and RRS with rotor aprox 250gr will it hold without tilting during a 360deg and or 180deg when only using the plate or spikes. Thanks in advance ? :-)
Asked by: Jerome D.
You would need a lot more weight than that to outmatch the PP Pro. Handles a D810 and a Nikon 14-24 without blinking. The 5D and 11-24 won't make it break a sweat?
