The Max Camera Support with Multi Accessory Kit from B&H combines the low-profile support with accessories that will help you stabilize and create photographs. Furthermore, you can attach different accessories with the included adapters to the camera support, place the support on smooth surfaces with the silicone pad, or secure onto a tree or pole with the 36" strap.
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.
Platypod Multi Accessory Kit
The Multi Accessory Kit from Platypod contains accessories that will help you stabilize and create photographs in combination with compatible Pro, Max, and Ultra tripod kits. In certain lighting situations, a side light is necessary to fill-in the shadows, and create the shot. The 3" long spigot adapter enables you to attach monolights or umbrella adapters to the spigot and onto a Platypod tripod. Moreover, sometimes a smooth surface may not be the ideal spot to place a tripod, but the 4 x 6", 2mm-thick silicone pad prevents the Platypod from slipping off the surface or even scratching it.
The 1/2" tall riser with a 1/4"-20 male stud enables you to mount a camera or other device to the tripod without the use of a head. In addition, the anodized aluminum riser gives clearance to smaller tripods heads that would otherwise have its knobs bump into the bottom platform of a Platypod tripod. Also included is a 36" long and 1.5" wide tension strap that has a weight capacity of 100 lb, can loop through a compatible tripod kit, and can wrap and secure the tripod to any tree or pole. Therefore, you gain height instead of photographing from the ground. When the Multi Accessory Kit is not in use, the drawstring pouch keeps all your accessories secure and in one place.
