The Ladderpod consists of 3 extension ladders that all affix to one another at their tops, as well as with a central spreader system.  The top receptacle for the three ladders has a built in Mitchell base, and once built, it functions just like an oversized standard tripod… only this one you can climb.  The operator and AC can both safely stand high up on the ladder rungs in order to operate the camera at the top.  It has the capability of being raised and lowered just like any other tripod, and can vary between heights of around 10 to 20 feet.
