The Ultra Plate Camera Support with Multi Accessory Kit from Platypod is a low-profile support for mirrorless and mid-sized cameras. Moreover, the Multi Accessory Kit contains accessories that will help you stabilize and create photographs in combination with the Max Camera Support.

  • Platypod Ultra Plate Camera Support

    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.

  • 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.

    The spigot adapter enables you to attach a speedlight or monolight to the Platypod tripods
    4 x 6" silicone pad lays under any of the Platypod tripods to prevent slipping or scratching on smooth surfaces
    1/2" tall riser lets you attach a camera or other devices directly to a Platypod tripod. The riser also helps to give height, which prevents the head's knobs from bumping into the tripod's platform
    The 36" long Tension strap allows you to strap any of the Platypod tripods to a freestanding object, such as a tree or pole

Ultra Plate Camera Support with Multi Accessory Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The must have travel accessory This is one of those "why didn't I think of this?" accessories for all those times you�forgot to bring your tripod. The only other things you need are your ball head and your camera. Then you're ready for almost any photographic situation, especially where tripods are forbidden. With the tension strap, adjustable feet and silicone pad in the accessory kit you can firmly mount the Platypod almost anywhere on earth. It will fit in your jacket pocket as well (without the ball head maybe). If you have a really big camera, go for the Platypod MAX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more caring try pod! Never like caring try pod even though I have Gizo. �Just purchased Platypod Ultra and took to Death Valley. �It was such a pleasure to use it and got amazing images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most used tripod that I own Been traveling a lot lately and never seem to have my tripod with me when I need it. Watched Scott Kelby's video on travel and his use of the Platypod Ultra and followed his suggestion and teamed the Oben BE117 with the Platypod and I have never been happier. No problem supporting my Nikon D-810 with battery grip and a 24-120mm or 70-200mm f/4 mounted. My RRS 55 is sitting gather dust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who'd have imagined? I have an aversion to boney old tripods when out on long wilderness hikes or urban excursions. Consequently, I was quick to order this nifty substitute for the tripod, which is made for such occasions when minimum gear is essential. The little red pouch that comes with the gadget nicely contains screw-in foot pods as well as extensions for your ball head if you so choose. It is stable and works surprisingly well with a full-sized DSLR. The plate is well machined and finished with an accompanying strap if one decides to hitch it to a post or tree for stability. In truth, I mostly like to go handheld with my camera, but it does work well on those limited occasions when you want to get a long tripod shot as long as there is a rock, post, or other object from which to shoot. Is it an essential tool? Maybe not essential, but because it is light and compact, it travels in my camera bag most places--just in case!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthy addition I will have to admit I was skeptical of the product only because of its size. A couple of years ago I switched to Olympus mirrorless, from Canon. I have several of their Pro lens which the 40-150 f2.8 lens can be heavy for a mirrorless set up. The thought of basically balancing this on a 3 X 5 card just didn't seem like it would be enough. I found it was plenty and very stable. I have several ball heads, so I ordered it without one and the only problem comes with those that have the tightening lever or knob close to the base. All but one do fine. I have found that a side bonus came when I use it to handhold the camera. It provides a nice base to grab and allows it to come up further on my body, allowing my arms to rest in a more natural position. I do a lot of outdoor photography and being able to put it at ground level adds a whole new perspective to my photography. One of my tripods allows me to almost shoot at ground level but, requires some work to do so. This is simple and quick. I am using it with a mirrorless Olympus EM1 Mk2 and it is a perfect match, very stable. Also very easy to keep in camera bag. I wanted to use this in a unique way upon purchasing. We have a huge Koi pond, the size of a small pool in our patio. I used an Olympus TG5, which is waterproof and mounted it to the Platypod Ultra. Set it to video and put it on the bottom. Fish were curious and swam right up to it, at their level and I got some great underwater video. Being aluminum I don't have to worry about rust or corrosion, great! May be a little pricey but, I think it is worth it, as you get what you pay for and is very versatile. I highly recommend it.
