As you can imagine, we love tripod ball heads. Platypods work well with almost any head but here are a few ball heads that we own, have tested and highly recommend. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.


Giottos MH1004-320 Mini Ballhead


Although the  Platypod Pro™ is designed and built for heavy-duty use, that doesn't mean that it can't be used with lightweight or compact equipment. This is an extremely compact, inexpensive and lightweight solution that can support up to 4.4 lbs. Attaches directly to a camera's 1/4"–20 standard tripod socket. Great for compact point-and-shoot cameras and included in our bundles for use with smartphones and tablets when combined with tripod mounts from Square Jellyfish (see products page). Can also be purchased separately at Amazon and many fine camera stores.
