Platypod Pro Max Overview

Bundling a unique support platform with a versatile tripod head, the Platypod Pro Max Camera Support with Oben BE-117 Ball Head Kit from B&H includes the wide, low-profile support base and Arca-type compatible ball head, which combine to form a complete system for stabilized shooting at low and unconventional angles.

Platypod Max Camera Support

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-inch belt shots 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.

Oben BE-117 Ball Head with Arca-Type Quick Release

The BE-117 Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight aluminum ball head with a load capacity of 17.6 lb, a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement. The individual knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. Taking panoramic photos is simple thanks to the panoramic scale at the base of the head. A notch in the ball head allows orientation to quickly change between portrait and landscape.

The included Arca-type quick release plate attaches to any camera and is secured in place with the receiver's locking knob, simply and reliably. Two removable safety screws on the bottom of the plate help prevent your camera from accidentally being released prematurely. One bubble level on the clamp and another on the locking knob ensure that the camera will be level with the horizon.

Dual Action Ball Head

The BE-117 dual-action ball head boasts smooth and effortless operation and features separate locking knobs for independently adjusting the ball and panoramic base.

Arca-Type Quick Release

The BE-117 Ball Head includes an Arca-type quick release plate for easily mounting and dismounting a camera. Adding a compatible Oben quick release plate to all your cameras facilitates camera swapping so you can exchange cameras without interrupting your shoot.

Dual Bubble Levels

The ball head features two integrated bubble levels to help make sure the camera is perfectly aligned with the horizon.

Will the Platypod Ultra support a Canon EOS R ...

Will the Platypod Ultra support a Canon EOS R with a 70-200 lens or do I have to go the Max?
Asked by: Jacob
It will work but the max would be better for the weight and length of the lens.
