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.
