The DigiPlate: A Rock Solid Laptop Stand for Photographers Shooting Tethered

There are plenty of products on the market specifically targeting the photographer who shoots tethered to a laptop. But when it comes to putting your laptop somewhere other than the nearest unoccupied chair or table, we haven’t run into many accessories that offer a versatile, “attach anywhere” sort of solution — until we stumbled on the DigiPlate.

The DigiPlate is in a different category than products like the TriPad we mentioned in April or the many laptop tripod stands available, both in terms of cost and functionality. While the TriPad was a great solution for the casual photographer, the DigiPlate is made with the professional in mind.

The plate allows you to lock your laptop down; it can be attached to many different photography stands, clamps and accessories using different adapters; and its designers are planning to add further functionality by allowing you to attach routers, hard drives and other accessories to the bottom of the plate.

The video below does a better job explaining what the DigiPlate is and how versatile of a product it can be than we can, so take a look if you wan’t more details. The project is currently still in the funding stages over on Kickstarter; where a minimum pledge of $225 will get your own once the funding ends 42 days from now.

    What is the tether software being used (and also being used in the KickStarter page)? I’d love to know. The Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 window seems small in comparison.
