What is a Platypod?

Platypod Pro LLC makes 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. Platypods can also become a portable studio, with accessory holes that are compatible with strobes.
