Platypod Announces: New Multi Kit Accessory Set!
Words by Scott Bourne from PictureMethods.com
Most of you know I am a huge fan of anything Platypod. I have been using Platypods since they were first introduced and have owned every model of Platypod. I also got to chime in on the Platyball – which is a unique ball head designed by Platypod owner, Larry Tiefenbrunn.
One of the things I like about the new Platyball is that it ships with a cool Arca-Swiss compatible camera/lens plate that is unlike anything else on the market. The NEW 2″ wide Arca-compatible, anodized aluminum, round mounting plate, has a 1/4”-20 stainless steel bolt male to 3/8”-16 female adapter with circular bubble level. It can be used to mount your camera or lens with lens foot to any Arca-Swiss compatible ball head.
Platypod has now included the Arca-compatible plate in their new Muti-Accessory Kit! The entire kit works with any Platypod including the Pro, Max or Ultra. In addition to the camera/lens plate, the kit comes with a 3-inch spigot adapter for portable and studio lighting; a silicone pad to secure grip on flat surfaces; a 36-inch cinch strap for securing your Platypod on large, freestanding objects (such as trees and wide poles); and a 3″ carabiner – all in a drawstring pouch.
