About this book
Rare and difficult-to-find essays provide fascinating reading in this third anthology in the Looking Closer series, a matchless resource tracing the continuum of critical thought from graphic designıs earliest days as a viable art and craft. Looking Closer 3 brings back into discourse more than thirty seminal essays by such distinguished figures as William Morris, Aldous Huxley, Alvin Lustig, and Paul Rand, reviving ideas of form and content as well as arguments over manner and style that have been lost for decades. For professionals, teachers, and students alike, this pivotal collection is an invaluable compliment to any design library. Michael Bierut is a partner of Pentagram, the international design consultancy. He lives in New York. Jessica Helfand is a partner of William Drenttel/ Jessica Helfand, a multimedia and print media company. She lives in Falls Village, CT.

    feature rich tripod!

    0 5/5 Kirk (IL, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) It is made out of aluminum. Light enough to carry around the whole day yet still very sturdy. The aluminum ball head actually performs well. Once you've got the desired angle and lock it in place, the camera will stay on that angle until you release the lock unlike my 20 usd tripod. Im using a d80 with 18-270mm lens attached. That's about 1.2kg weight. The tripod is rated by the manufacturer to handle up to 13 lbs of equipment. Other features are a quick release plate, 2 bubble levels ( one on the head and the other on the legs), user replaceable aluminum tripod head, a threaded weight hook and spiked feet. The tripod can also converted so you can take macro shots. The legs can be locked in position independent of one another. With all these features plus great performance, this tripod is a steal!One minor hiccup, the plastic on the leg clamps, while not cheap, isnt top of the line. But they get the job done so it a no issue for me 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 26, 2009

    Great Tripod for the Price

    If you're a professional photographer, go look at Manfrotto or some of the other high end brands. If you're an amateur photographer looking for a good tripod that won't cut into your lens budget, then look no further.The ball head is nice, but is sometimes a bit unwieldy, and difficult to set. Sometimes you have to crank down the tightening nut a lot to get it to stay. The snaps that extend the legs are plastic feel cheap, but what can you expect from such an inexpensive tripod?On the good side, you are getting a ball head tripod, with legs that can be extended past their typical angle. They also have nice padding on them which is great in the Northern climates when you have to work without gloves. The tips of the legs can be rotated to reveal spikes for difficult terrain, and there's two bubble levels: one on the legs of the tripod, and one on the actual ball head. There's also a compass, if you need that utility. Even with all that, you still get a pretty... 4/5 R. Kanzig - See all my reviews, April 12, 2009

This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) Great tripod with performance legs that spread low and wide for macro work for the price. The quick release plate, quick flip lever leg release and lock, bubble levers, and a good tripod case besides being light and compact is great. The weak area for this tripod is the weak strength of the legs when fully extended, it has too much play but great for P&S digitals O.K. for small dSLR with small lens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 22, 2009

    A fairly rugged, lightweight and adaptable tripod, that works great with small to medium-sized cameras

    Amazon basics has been developing a fairly solid lineup of fairly inexpensive basic equipment for photographers and videographers over the past few years. This tripod is one of their latest products and I have to say I am fairly impressed. It's not top-of-the-line and it doesn't compete with Manfrotto but it isn't meant to. It's meant to be a reliable piece of equipment, that's not cheap like the entry-level gear you find in the camera department of the big retail giants, but that's nevertheless affordable.This one is designed exclusively for photographers - you could shoot video on it, but only if you aren't planning to move the camera, as there's no pan/tilt handle to assist with smooth movements. It is, however, very adjustable so that you can put the camera in exactly the position you like.There is a quick release plate, so that you can quickly unmount the camera or move it between mounts - although it seems to be proprietary, so likely you can only move it... 4/5 Nathan Andersen "Gadget lover and author of S...

    You can not go wrong with this one

    I've been an amateur photographer for more than 20 years. I have used bulky tripods that cost 3 times as much as this one, yet do not provide the flexibility of a ball head tripod. In the last few years, I used ball head tripods such as Vanguard and Manfrotto. Both cost more than 3 times as this one, and, although I prefer those to this one (they are after all sturdier and accept heavier cameras/lenses), I believe they are overpriced when looking at what Amazon was able to accomplish for $40. Other than it could be a little taller, I would... 5/5 Ardeal "Emi" (Atlanta, GA United States) - See all my reviews, November 12, 2013

    Excellent, well-designed product, especially in the price range

    I'm not a professional photographer, but I do a fair amount of photography with cameras. And this product is not designed for professionals, but it's an excellent choice for amateurs.It's clear that this tripod is designed by someone who gave thought to what would be helpful for taking pictures with a camera. That might sound obvious to some, but I have bought products that seemed designed by someone who never used that item, and did not understand what would be worthwhile. So, this tripod has:* Convenient carrying case (22" x 4") designed to hold exactly this tripod. Case has over-shoulder carrying strap, padding, moisture barrier and zippered compartment for the manual and included allen wrenches (apparently these remove the legs, but it is unclear why you would need to do that)* Legs that both swing and telescope, allowing quick setup and then quick release buttons to collapse to compact size that fits in the case.* Bubble Level,... 5/5 Kenneth Stuart (Central California Coast) - See all my reviews, October 9, 2013

    0 4/5 Laura Laffitte - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: XCSOURCE® Pro All Metal Camera Tripod Ballhead with Quick Release Plate for Canon 5D mark II III 550d 50d 600d 1000d 1100d 650d 700d Nikon D7100 D7000 D5200 D5100 D3200 D3100 D3000 LF023 (Electronics) I purchased this product to put on the top of a monopod for quick and easy removal of my camera while out hiking. I use it with a Manfrotto MM294A4 294 and a Canon 60d. I usually have a Canon 70-200 or a Tamron 70-300 attached to the 60d. It does work and is built well. The cost us much less than the name brands. I can't say if it is as good as the name brands as I don't own any of them. it works for what I wanted and I will also use it on my tripod once I get a thread adapter. This is larger than what is on my tripod. My monopod will accept either size threads. One small thing; the part that you turn to tighten the plate to the camera is a little finicky. What I am talking about is on the bottom of the plate. It is sometimes a little hard to fold down if you don't have fingernails, and sometimes it falls down and hits when you are trying to mount the plate on the rest of the ball head. All-in-all I am happy with this purchase. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 3, 2013

    good priced decent carbon fiber tripod

    I got this tripod as a gift and wanted to try it out before reviewing it. I've had it for a couple months now and i really like it. My other tripod is a Manfrotto 3001BPro and it is a bit heavy, i also have an inexpensive mono-pod with a sunpack pistol-grip head. One of first rules of having a tripod is you have to use it for it to be any good and the Manfrotto was a bit heavy to pack around Seattle or hiking. I did bring the mono-pod hiking, but it too, is heavy. I have trudged around for hours in the city with the Dolica and my camera gear and forgot i was even carrying it, it is that light.Not really a big fan of the twist legs, but i haven't had any trouble with them......just have to remember not to tighten them too much or you will strip the threads. The tripod sets up quick, the included ballhead is very light, moves smoothly and easy to set up and the spring-loaded hook is a must.

    Light, compact and sturdy with convenient grip-twist telescoping feet

    Why I love it:Given that I have to carry around anywhere from three to five things when doing a photo shoot for a project, this tripod barely makes a dent on the load. The main shaft is the only major metallic component aside from the bolts, joints and screws - very light and is true to its specified weight of 3.5 lbs. The carrying case that comes with it is not needlessly bulky either, and it tucks under the arm onto the shoulders very nicely without wobbling. The carbon fiber may look deceptively fragile, but trying to bend any part of the legs, even the thinnest segments didn't feel even a tiny bit like PVC or aluminium in its tensile strength - it far surpasses both, so you really get what you pay for in this tripod's durability. Lastly, the tripod leg release is not in clip form as in most other tripods I've used, but uses grips that you can loosen and tighten. When unpacking this tripod, you can grip all three segments and release them in three motions instead of nine... 5/5 Omar M. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
