Re-inventing the tripod. PlatyPod creator Larry Tiefenbrunn.

Techstination feature for Tuesday, May 24, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Platypod is the name of a company created by pediatrician, photographer, inventor and entrepreneur.   Dr. Larry Tiefenbrunn’s latest compact and versatile flat tripod alternative…is the Platypod Extreme arriving this summer.  It can take your camera places no other tripod can from the ground on up…

“You’ll see some of the top names in photography in the United States and around the world who are using our equipment.  This is not a toy.   This is a professional piece of equipment.”

 I also love Dr. T’s new Platyball Elite ballhead also coming this summer.   So solid with a very unique design including an LED electronic leveling module.    If you can’t wait for what’s new…check out what’s available now at
