PAUL // PLATYBALL ELITE
I like this ballhead. It supports heavy camera/lens combinations and is quick to adjust and lock down. I particularly like the way the top of the head pans instead of the entire head turning. Arca Swiss compatibility with other tripod plates.
"Unique design. Solid head."
KAREN // PLATYBALL ERGO
I used the Platyball while on vacation on the beaches of Oregon. It held the weight of my Canon R6 with a 24-70 F4.0 lens in both landscape and portrait; no creeping. I needed to make some fast adjustments while changing tripod locations on a rocky and sea misted location. With the easy to use controls, it was a breeze to make those quick adjustments. I am very happy with my purchase.
"Simple and Fast to use"
TIM // PLATYBALL ERGO
I have used relatively cheap ballheads up until now, while my spending on cameras and lenses has been astronomical. I was looking for something easy to use, that would work well on my Manfrotto tripod, my Peak Design travel tripod, and the PlatyPod. And would not have any slippage once it's set. And wouldn't break the bank. The Platyball fit all those criteria. Absolutely fantastic.
DOUG // PLATYBALL ERGO
Very well built and heavy. Will take some getting used to because it is different from most ballheads but very easy to use and only takes one hand to operate.
"Built to Last"
PAUL // PLATYPOD ULTRA
Great plate for taking pictures of fungi camera fits on ballhead on top of plate and stick it in the ground, also can be used for macro holding flowers backgrounds for pictures photos.
"Fungi photo plate"
JAMES // PLATYPOD ULTRA
The Platypod Ultra is a solid base that combined with an appropriate ballhead can be used to support small and medium size SLRs. I combined it with an Oben BE-108 ballhead, for panarama uses, and it very stably supports a Nikon Z7 with 24-120mm zoom. I look forward to using this combination on travel overseas, so as not to carry a tripod.
BRAD // PLATYPOD ULTRA
I'm happy with this purchase. It does a nice job of supporting my Nikon Z6 with 24-70 f4 and 70-200 f2.8 lenses. It's a lot lighter than I was expecting. It's been a good solution for places where a tripod isn't allowed. I reached out to the company to ask a question and was very impressed with how quickly I heard back from them ... in fact, they called me within a few hours to talk about it.
"Nicely machined, lightweight, stable"
WHAT DO THE PROS SAY ABOUT ULTRA?
One of my favorite ‘Sammonisms’ is, use your hand-held camera like a drone. In other words, move your camera up and down, tilt it and move it side to side for creative angles. Thanks to Platypod I was able to follow my own advice while photographing this woman in a rural village in China.
