Ultra Plate Camera Support with Benro IN00 Single Action Ball Head Kit Overview

The Ultra Plate Camera Support with Benro IN00 Single Action Ball Head Kit from B&H makes an ideal combination for shooting at very low angles as well as attaching to unconventional higher angles to get that unique shot.

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.

Ultra Plate Camera Support with Benro IN00 Single Action Ball Head Kit Reviews

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.

Great Backpacking alternative

I bought this for a backpacking trip to Glacier NP. It was a weight and space saving decision as I couldn't justify a tripod. The Platapod filled in exceptionally well as I was able to take group selfies and long exposure shots without problems, Rocks and logs served as easy set ups. I even got some nice ground level perspective shots. Back at the lodge, I used it with my Nikon D500 and 24-70 lens without issues.

Just got my Platypod with the Benro ball head. I can't get the rubber screw top off the screw. It looks like it's something that protects it. I don't want to break it by applying too much pressure. Thanks.
Asked by: Cheri
If you are talking about the single soft rubber cover over the screw on the top of the platypod, where the ball head attaches, just hold on to it a twist it off. Or you can pry it gently up off the screw.
