The Platypod Max and the Ultra are simply elegant, important tools in our camera kit! We depend on them for our still and video work. Many know of Larry’s great product already, he has sold lots of them and rightly so. The Platypod is incredibly flexible taking the place of a tripod in places where either a tripod won’t work or not allowed. I’ve found that the Platypod does this and so much more so very well. The video tells my story with the Platypod!
