01 | PLATYBALL ERGO PERFORMING IN THE EXTREME COLD WITH EASE WITH DAVE WILLIAMS

"My fingers hurt, my camera glitched, but my Platyball worked perfectly – Platyball Ergo for the win with a flawless performance in the extreme cold"

I’m a travel photographer with a deep love of the cold and the northern lights. I’ve just spent three months exploring deep within the arctic circle and visiting as many Nordic countries as I can. My mission was a success, albeit sometimes an uncomfortable success. Unlike many previous adventures I wasn’t limited with baggage space, so I was able to bring all of my gear with me. That gear haul included my Platyball Ergo, which I decided I would have to test in Finnish Lapland one evening when the temperature plummeted to -40˚.

02 | A LONG-TERM TIME-LAPSE WORTH WAITING FOR… WITH JAY P. MORGAN

A long-term time-lapse video doesn’t need to consume a lot of your time but it does require the right equipment and rigging. Photographer, educator, artist and camera man, Jay P. Morgan demonstrates how to effectively collect several months’ worth of camera data installing a new machine in a warehouse (view video here) using both the Platypod Max and Ultra as key components.

03 | PLATYPOD FOR EXTREMELY LOW ANGLES WITH LARRY SHAPIRO

I’ve always loved toys. My most favorite have been all types of trucks and heavy equipment. I’ve been blessed to have had the opportunity to spend a portion of the past 40 years working with clients that build fire trucks.

Last summer, one of them requested to have their trucks photographed from an extremely low angle for their 2022 product calendar. I had the perfect tool in my case for the task – the Platypod. I used a small ball head to mount my camera and tethered it to my laptop.

Platyball Preorder

 

In January of 2020, we launched an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign as Platypod turned the world upside down with a revolutionary ball head, Platyball. Over 2000 photographers supported the project and last week we completed shipping our first tier backers. While there are still close to 1500 Kickstarter and Indiegogo backers to ship, manufacturing has dramatically increased production. So much so, that we can finally respond to requests to pre-order Platyball Elite and Ergo models.

We can now support a pre-order program with limited quantities available on a first-come first-served basis. We’re opening pre-orders with 270 Platyball Elites and 100 Ergos (approximately 80 Elites and a handful of Ergos left) for delivery in the April/May time frame. Limit one of each model per customer.

Elite and Ergo will ONLY be available by pre-order for the next several months. Credit cards will be charged, but payment is refundable up until the time the product has actually shipped.
