Fit a notebook on your tripod

The Tallyn laptop deck is like a tripod's ballhead and can be fixed to most Manfrotto or Studio Titan tripods.

Professional photographers often shoot with their cameras tethered to their computers so they can see the images on a larger display. However, when out in the field, the environment may not be suitable for resting a laptop on the ground or on rocky surfaces. In such cases, the Tallyn laptop deck may come in handy.

The attachment is like a tripod's ballhead and can be fixed to most Manfrotto or Studio Titan tripods. It has an adjustable base to accommodate notebooks of various sizes up to about 7.9 pounds, and the deck can be tilted to facilitate viewing angles.

As with most professional-oriented ballheads, the Tallyn laptop deck doesn't come cheap. It's priced at $84.95 on the company's Web site.
