Platypod PRO / by Udo Luetze

I bought my Platypod PRO a while ago and never used it; until today.  The mission was to shoot a panorama from a higher vantage point.  Since none of my tripods could provide that I decided to use a ladder.  This way I was higher than usual and created the vantage point I needed for this shot.

I mounted the Platypod PRO with the help of 2 clamps on the top of my ladder.  This provided a solid base for my tripod head.

With the head mount securely to my ladder I could use my panorama rear as usual to shoot my panorama.

I was able to rotate the camera through it's nodal point for a perfect panorama.
