I’m looking for a laptop stand to tether with my camera. I’m looking at everything from something like this https://www.adorama.co​m …3.html?rfkref=p​roductPage (external link) to this https://www.adorama.co​m/tta1sblk.html (external link). I want to make sure that my laptop does not fall off for obvious reasons, including safety, so I do not mind spending extra to get more stability. Anyone have any experience or thoughts with these types of platforms?

Thanks.

I would not use either.

I have a wheeled metal cart with three shelves, laptop on top and all kinds of other stuff on the other shelves. It's perfect.

The tether tools table is reasonable good, one of the few affordable options that works and is strong enough for every day use.
But, the arm they also sell is a cheap low quality copy of the Manfrotto clamp and arm, and is not very good. The Manfrotto super clamp works.


One of these: https://www.manfrotto.​us …tand-34-with-folding-base (external link)

With one of these: https://www.manfrotto.​us …mp-without-stud-aluminium (external link)

Connected to one of these: https://www.manfrotto.​us/extension-arm-with-013-stud (external link)

With a tether tools Table on top https://www.adorama.co​m/tta1sblk.html (external link)

Lets you put a monitor on the top of the stand using one of these https://www.adorama.co​m/ttstdvu2.html (external link)

Then the arm on the super clamp mounted to the stand underneath with the laptop on it.

Thanks.

Are you working strictly in studio or a location where you've transported studio-level equipment, or are you working in mobile location situations?

If you're in a studio, you probably want to buy my big, sleek Inka studio stand--it has a laptop shelf that rides with the camera as you glide like Fred Astaire leading Ginger Rogers around the studio floor.
