"Favorite Desktop Tripod Alternative" featuring Gemini Connect

Words by Eryka Bagwell

While the traditional tripod has been around for years, we found many circumstances where we were unable to complete a capture due to the #TripodPolice. This is just one reason (of many) that caused our founder Doctor Larry Tiefenbrunn to form Platypod. 

For those of you still stuck on a traditional tripod, this is your sign to take a look at this review from Suzi Pratt of Gemini Connect. You'll see that they've found a variety of uses for their Platypod gear despite low angle captures not being their standard shooting style. A warning, for the price point, compact setup, rapid deploy capabilities and versatility you may not turn back to your traditional shooting style!
