This video reviews the Platypod Extreme, a tripod base which allows ground-level setup for your camera. This lightweight, useful photography accessory can allow you to set up your camera in all sorts of places that you wouldn't have been able to reach before.
Platypod is a sponsor of the Photo Wonders website that I co-manage with Rick Sammon. I don't have any other financial relationship with Platypod. This is a completely independent review without direct compensation from the manufacturer. We are committed to 100% transparency regarding financial relationships with equipment providers and brand partners, and we strive at all times to ensure that reviews are independent, honest, and free of bias.
