Platyball – my view…..

Hard to Believe!

You may be aware that I have been involved with Platypod and its inventor Dr. Larry Tiefenbrunn from the very inception of the “tripod alternative. I am equally proud to have been deeply involved with the introduction of the absolutely incredible and revolutionary ball-head the Platyball.

It’s hard to believe it was only two weeks ago that the Kickstarter campaign was launched! 

The Platyball announcement has been picked up by a dozen different publications, podcasts, and video interviews in addition to the original launch on The Grid. Now, we want to take it one step further:

The response from photographers and journalists around the world has been remarkable, including the video above shared by photographer, author, and educator, Jay P. Morgan on “The Slanted Lens.”   And, showing the product “live” at Imaging USA in Nashville last week, also created another flurry of activity with positive reactions across the board, bringing us to over 1100 backers.

Starting today, we’re launching our Kickbooster program, giving you the chance to share in the success of Platyball with a 10% commission for every dollar you help us raise for the campaign! If you’re not already set up with Kickbooster, click on the link below. There’s no charge for setting up your account. We need your help to spread the word, and at 10%, your commissions are going to ramp up quickly.


Thank you for your support of Platyball. We have a proven track record of on-time deliveries and quality products. We have 46 days to go and you too can be a part of this fabulous launch.

The Platyball

“Everything you know about tripods and ball heads is about to change. Check out this week’s announcement from Platypod and visit www.Platyball.com. Their Kickstarter campaign launches on Jan 15 and there’s a special bonus for early backers. What a kick!” 

The Kickstarter campaign launches on Jan 15 on The Grid. Larry T. will be Scott’s guest along with Don Komarechka. The show starts at 4:00 and the Platyball Kickstarter video and announcement should kick off at 4:30. It’s a pretty remarkable product. Here’s a general description…
The Platyball presents a new, revolutionary way to level.  Featuring an inverted design, single-handed ergonomics, and a unique twist-action Arca compatible clamp, we have literally taken the classic tripod head design and turned it upside down.  Redesigned from the ground up, the Platyball becomes an extension of your hand and allows you to quickly level your camera better than ever before. It is heavy duty and accurate to half a degree.
