Who is it for?

For photo and video professionals who prefer light and functional laptop platform. 

Why did we make it?

We wanted to make a laptop platform that is not a simple cheese plate, but a multi-functional, ergonomically advanced, and lightweight product that saves your energy, your luggage fees, and makes it a pleasure to use on set. 

How did we make it?

During many years on set we kept improving our own setups until we found the best ratio of ergonomics, weight, and functionality. It’s much like sports engineering – maximum performance with minimum weight. Method was built exactly that way. We've integrated all key features such as Arca mount, Arri anti-twist holes, air vents and cable management into the platform. Outer lines of Method are designed with ergonomics in mind – finger grooves and wide handle provide reliable and pleasant operation.
