Laptop Tray on Tripod

Cool location setup I've seen is one of the trays (like the Gitzo G065 or Manfrotto 183) + the laptop sleeve from a Lowepro CompuPrimus AW (picture (external link)). Little bit of jiggery pokery to get the tray into the base of the lowepro case + cutting a hole to allow you to attach your quick release mount of choice to the bottom of the tray, and hot diggity it's a slick system. Saw a digi-assistant with that setup and I was waaay jealous. Grab a HyperMac for extra juice and hang it from the tripod as weight to make it more stable. Niiiiice :)

Unfortunately I don't think they sell the laptop sleeve from the CompuPrimus seperately, because I really want one!!

I know its a different style of fishing over your way, but have a look online at coarse fishing tackle
There are lots of side tray type accessories out there, I'm sure it would be possible to knock something up fairly cheaply

Nice looking, seems suitable for clamping on the center column of a tripod, leaving the top of the column free for mounting a camera...but there is unfortunately no dimensional information so that you know how large of an item can be placed on the tray top.

You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost! Keep POTN alive and well with member support​hp

attached with a supper clamp. This is my setup. I also attached a strip of velcro to my laptop and to the platform. The platform fits a 13 inch macbook pro perfectly.

I recently made my own DIY version here: …234&highlight=c​ookie+tray

I could have applied the same cookie tray to laptop tray using this versatile item, also: …EUJ&coliid=I1Y7​A7DTZB0YTD (external link)

I've used one of these a couple of times. It's not great, but not bad either. If you have a good beefy tripod, it seems better. (external link)
