A Platypod for everyone.


What is a Platypod?

Platypod Pro LLC make the world's most compact mini tripod bases for photographersInspired by the duck-billed platypus, an animal with flat and broad feet, we designed our camera supports to be ideal for low-angle shots and situations where traditional tripods are cumbersome or impractical.

Their flat design makes them strong. Platypods can support even the biggest DSLR cameras and the heaviest lenses.
