What do the pros say about Ultra?
“As a Commercial Photographer, I had to shoot a -30º warehouse freezer. With a ball head attached to the Platypod, I was able to make a tripod out of my 10’ A-frame ladder. I used zip-ties to secure it to the top of the ladder and it worked flawlessly. I consider the Platypod a MUST HAVE for my photography business!”
