John Shaw's Closeups in Nature

Creator: John Shaw | Photography - 1987

These tripods are the Slik M322 on left and the Gitzo 320 with a Bogen 3047 head on right. Both tripods offer low- level ground positioning. I've taped the legs of my Gitzo to keep my hands from getting so cold when I'm using it in the winter.

Publisher: Amphoto Books

About this book
The nature photographer John Shaw offers the first book to apply closeup techniques to the subject of nature. Most of the available material on closeup photography concentrates on studio techniques, which can't be used effectively in the field. Discussing the basic technical considerations as they apply to outdoor closeup photography, Shaw covers exposure, equipment, and composition. Specific techniques and equipment applications include - extension tubes and bellows; macro lenses; internal focusing lenses; zoom lenses; supplementary lenses; teleconverters; flash; and lighting. Studio work and other methods are explained in relation to why they are not practical in the field. The book is illustrated throughout with Shaw's fine, full-color images.

John Shaw's Landscape Photography

Creator: John Shaw | Photography - 1994

The Gitzo 341, with the same legs as the 320, gives you the option of removing the centerpost assembly entirely and replacing it with a flat platform. Consequently, this tripod will go absolutely flat on the ground if you need that shooting ...

About this book
From grand vistas to intimate woodland glades, landscapes are favorite photography subjects. Too often, however, photographer's visual experiences of the majestic outdoors aren't reflected in the pictures they make. Why? Because many people overlook the importance of good technique, believing that exotic locations and expensive lenses create fantastic pictures. As John Shaw, the famous nature photographer and best-selling author, demonstrates in this definitive book, expertise as a landscape photographer comes from mastering techniques and developing a personal response to nature, not from having a large budget for travel and equipement. "John Shaw's Landscape Photography" teaches that producing good photographs means learning how to control the tools of photography: camera equipement, lenses, film, light, and exposure. The goal Shaw proposesis to make technical proficiency second nature, so that it doesn't intrude when it is time to compose great pictures. With lessons fully illustrated by 195 color photographs, including many before-and-after sequences, this beautiful book also covers all the basics of photographic design and composition that characterize brillian portraits of the landscape.

The Backpacker's Photography Handbook

Creator: Charles Campbell | Photography - 1994

Another excellent tripod is the Gitzo 224. Gitzos are expensive, but they are very well made and come with a lifetime warranty that makes them worthwhile investments. I like the fact that the 224's legs can be spread parallel to the ground .

    5/5 Ayyoub A. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) just baxk from a weekend in the Ricky Moutain and the tripod delivers very well. Light and sturdy. Very dlexible in the legs and the rotating head. It helped me get some amazing photos.I usedot with Nikon d3200 and kit lenses. If you are just startingand need something affordable and good quality, this is the perfect choice., June 21, 2015

    Live and learn, this one is for me

    I own 3 tripods. #1 is the big strong, firm, bullet proof, expensive pan head that everyone thinks is the one you want. It has the twist lock legs that most of the stronger tripods have. It is slow to deploy, a pain to carry around due to weight and size, and I would hate to loose that costly piece of equipment. It is better suited for studio work. #2 is the Dolicia GX600B200 Proline GX Series 60-Inch Aluminum Tripod and Ball Head Combo, far more versatile and portable. The flip lock legs deploy and adjust quickly, it becomes very stable when I hang other equipment or the camera bag from the hook. Great right? Nope. I really have developed a dislike for ball heads. They will flop. Purchased this tripod for many reasons including it's rating for heavier gear, but ballheads just do not tighten easily enough for me. I replaced the original head with a compact trigger head that worked faster but was not as exact or smooth when changing positions. Oh, but what a great price for a tripod... 5/5 Southern Cookie (NC USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Anything larger than a mid-sized point-and-shoot camera will overload this tripod.

    If you are looking for a tripod to mount an optic or camera with even low to moderate weight - look elsewhere.While this initially looked to be a sturdy and well-made tripod, it became immediately apparent that if you mount anything weighing over approximately 1.5 lbs, this thing will wobble and oscillate with the slightest touch, defeating the purpose for using a tripod in the first place.I returned this tripod and purchased a more expensive, centrally braced tripod - but with significantly better results. I would go far as to say this tripod would have trouble preserving a vibration free platform for even a mid-sized point-and-shoot camera - let alone anything with even the slightest piece of glass on it. Spotting scopes? Forget it. Binoculars? Again - anything much over a pound will just sit there and vibrate/resonate/ring, preventing the kind of view you pay good money for a tripod for.Consider the Davis and Sanford PROVISTA 18.

    Solid and Sturdy as advervisted, cost a lot, but so does most other quality products.

    Glad I bought the 4 sections, the bird blinds I go to, have different height of portals to look out, it is critical, without a center post to be able to adjust the height of the tripod, 4 sections give me that option, if needed. Using just 3 legs, with a Gimbal head, I have to bend slightly, at my 5/11 size, but lifting the Gimbal head vertically, just a bit, puts me at my eye level, or lowering the 2nd leg a bit to the pre-marked lines on each leg, which in my case is a perfect fit, and the leveling bubble was centered, wish they had more of these lines and numbered, on each leg, but I suppose one could create their own marks. Serial number is located behind (rear) of the Gitzo lable on one of the legs, took me forever to locate this...

    The Cadillac of Tripods

    I purchased the GT5542LS tripod to pair it with my new Nikon 600 mm VR lens. If you're looking for a top of the line tripod that's rock solid and doesn't weigh a ton, this is the one you want.I've researched a lot of different tripods (I currently own 4 by other companies) one name kept coming up with high marks, Gitzo. Like others have stated, you get what you pay for. There must be a reason other companies seem to try to imitate the Gitzo design. The price tag is on the high side and there are other brands and clones out there cheaper but save your money and get the best right from the start and save yourself hassles and headaches trying to return the cheaper tripods.It's solid and the G-lock system for the legs allows me to set up or take down very quickly, a great improvement over some of the other tripods I already own. I've had this tripod in some pretty harsh conditions including salt water, mud, sand and everything in between and never had a problem.

    Handles heavy cameras and lenses like no other

    5/5 Tehaurai - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo Series 5 Systematic 4 Section Tripod GT5542LS (Electronics) Top notch. I knew what i was getting.Handles heavy cameras and lenses like no other. Stability, stability. stability KING. Fast set up, fits in a small suit case.Used it with a heavy medium format camera.Down side if i can call it like that is the weight of the whole set up. (Tripod, ball head, half bowl and pano gimball) which brings the total weigh to around 11 kilos ! Too heavy for travel, too heavy for long hikes which i mostly do.Love it and probably will never sell it but i tried the A7R with lighter set up and ... man what a release for the shoulders.Probably won't go back to those heavy set ups.But still this gear is a peace of art.
