Platypod 1014 Overview

The Ultra Plate Camera Support from Platypod is a 6061-T6 aluminum tripod platform that has a weight capacity of 100 lb and designed for mirrorless or mid-sized cameras. The compact and portable Ultra has a 3/8"-16 male stud for any type of tripod head. Five 3/8"-16 threaded holes can have four stainless-steel spiked feet screwed through the top in any combination to accommodate uneven terrain. Threading through the bottom of the platform utilizes the rubber feet on the opposite side of the spiked feet. Therefore, you're able to place the tripod platform on smooth surfaces and not have the platform slide off or scratch the surface.

The Ultra Plate Camera Support also has three countersunk holes to drive nails into a wooden surface and permanently attach the platform for special applications. Additionally, there are three open spaces that the included carabiner can clip into for attaching to a belt or bag. Another means of carrying the Ultra is by running an accessory belt or backpack strap through the slotted belt loops. Meanwhile, the slotted belt loops can also accommodate the 20" cinch strap, so it can attach onto a tree or pole and shoot from an elevated height.

Probably the best form of stability for a camera

So I can't say enough good things about the Platypod plates. They are a great substitute for when you can't use a tripod. I have shot in places that have strictly said no tripods, with the Ultra and Max without any issues so I'd recommend everyone get one of these. They're also great because they fit in your camera bag and weigh almost nothing and so you always have it with you. (Tip: if you're going to use the spikes, it may be considered a tripod, so if you're in a place that doesn't allow tripods, don't use the spikes).

Handy

So far the Platypod has been a handy alternative to have around. Great that I can get perspectives from down very low and not need to put my camera into dirt or water to do so. It's solid, simple construction is also an appeal. Nothing to break.

Ready for steady

I'm taking a trip and don't have too much room for my gear. Looking forward to having this option for steadying my camera for selfies, low angle, and long exposure shots. I have used a clone, but this is smaller, lighter, and has good storage options for the accessories.

what can I say besides exceptional. I have used this alot lately. I can without hesitation that this will be a go to alternative to carrying a tripod and macro photography, especially at ground level. The possibilities of its use seems endless. Easly used where tripods are not allowed. Very lightweight and compact.
