Platypod Ultra Plate with Benro IN00 Reviews
Rugged and very easy to use. It can be mounted on almost any tripod if you want. I am very pleased.
Very convenient! Performs great!
Use it once and you'll find dozens of ways to use it for various compositions.
A tripod to go into places that don't allow tripods
I was sold on this after watching a segment with Scott Kelby. Most mini tripods don't support heavy cameras but this handles a Canon R5 with a 24-105L like a champ. Plus even assembled it takes up practically no room in the camera bag. The next test is to see if I can use it for a long exposure at Grand Central without issue.
Excellent product for ground level macro and close up shots
I use this for ground level macro and close shots. One can get really low to the ground. The Platypod can be on a table / shelf to photograph through a window or a room interior. Furthermore it can be strapped to a tree for game camera use or for landscapes. A light weight and flexible item.
Just what I needed to have when I can't take my tripod with
You know those times when they won't let you bring a tripod in or when you are scampering over boulders and carrying a tripod just isn't convenient? The platypod works just great for me. Hiking in a national park, or wandering around town, it gives me the flexibility to not have to carry a tripod. The Platypod Ultra has no problem holding my Nikon D810 with its 80-200mm lens or anything of a lesser size. I like having the cinch strap so I can make use of trees or light posts to stabilize my camera. I wasn't quite sure when I ordered it, but I am now, GREAT BUY! PS, it will also easily hold my RRS HB-55 ball head as well!
Simple, lightweight and effect
This is a perfect piece of kit for when it’s not expedient to travel with a full size tripod, or for places where a tripod isn’t allowed. I chose to get the combo with the Benro ball head as it is significantly lighter than my regular ball head, and this is all about traveling lite. It’s been very stable with my Canon EOS RP with the 24-105 kit lens, as well as a 16-35 f/4 L with the adapter. Haven’t tried it with my 70-200 f/2.8, probably because I’m not bringing that lens if I’m going lite. I find it very useful. Highly recommended.
Platypus Ultra has possibilities
It will come in handy for times I don't want to take my tripod. I used it with my Canon 100mm macro lens and I had to be careful to angle it just right so the bullhead didn't slip.. I made sure the longer end of the platypus was under the side of my camera with the lens. I haven't tried other lenses yet.
I wish I had one of these a long time ago
