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. Steven Heller is a senior art director at The New York Times, editor of the AIGA Journal of Graphic Design, and the author or editor of more than seventy books on graphic design.

    Best of the Cheapy Ball Heads.

    NOTE: After using this a little longer, I have found it awkward with heavier or longer lenses. You kind of need to use two hands to tighten both knobs at once, and with heavier setups (I'm talking 3-4lbs heavy, not 10lbs heavy), you can't count on a lighter tension to hold things while you tighten both knobs. Also, I've found a glitch developed in one of the tightening knobs where as you're turning it it feels like it hits a bump where it gets tighter for a bit, then looser, then tight again. Not good. I'm probably going to try a different head.Original Revue:A Cheap Good Ball Head is a rare animal. Look at the reviews for almost any head <$100 (and most <$300) and you'll see them described as junk, useless, or "maybe I can use this to hold my flash."Features you would like in your Ball head and how this Bieke/Cowboy head stacks up:SOLID - won't drift with the weight of your gear (and won't drop your gear!).

    Good build quality...

    0 4/5 twelveone - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio Pro Camera Tripod Ball Head Quick Release Plate With Gradienter BK-03 (Electronics) I bought this to go along with my StudioFX 32&#34; camera slider. It works great. A good compliment, to the other piece. I even used it vertically to get jib like shots with my slider. This isn't a knock on the item itself, cause it works great; but I wish I got a ball head with a handle so I can do more dynamic shots. It would also have been easier to adjust.This would have been a 5 star review, but I had a problem with how the quick release plate and shoe was designed. You can slide it off the shoe mount in either direction. Which sounds convenient until you lock in your expensive camera and realize &#34;Wow, if this isn't super tight this thing can come flying off&#34;. As oppose to have a quick release plate that can only be removed in one direction. You have the illusion at least, that it's more secure because there are less directions it can move.That's the one thing that bothered me about this. It's well built and feels really sturdy. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, September 19, 2014

    A Very well made Camera Swivel

    This item impressed me.I'm using it on a Targus Mono-Pod, with a Quick release adapter screwed onto the top of this swivel.I use it with a Sony Camcorder and Canon Rebel camera with no problems. Once I tighten the swivel, I don't have to worry about it drooping or otherwise shifting position.From top to bottom:No rough edges from machining. The movement was very smooth.It even includes a rubber screw cap, to keep the top camera mount screw from marring anything when it's not attached to something.It's all metal, except for the thumbscrew tabs and screw-on camera seat.The camera seat has an additional rubber pad for firmer gripping of the camera when it's screwed on.The curve of the inside socket opening exactly matches the curve of the ball. This means no play or movement whatever once it's tightened.It's designed so that the thumbscrew does NOT take much effort at all to lock the swivel and ball into whatever... 5/5 P.

    OK for small cameras but don't put your 7D on it

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer (Brooklyn, NY United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Professional Mini Ball Head Camera Mount (Electronics) The Giottos ball head is good for a small camera that's not too heavy, but you'll want to get something larger and more stable for your heavier cameras and/or fancy lenses. We found that the 7D with a 24mm wide angle lens on it tended to slide unless we cranked the knob so hard it nearly stripped the screw. "Professional" as a term to describe this item is probably pushing it; its really a consumer ball head for lightweight cameras like a Canon Powershot and/or other devices, such as handycam-type video recorders. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, July 14, 2010

    0 5/5 Leslie Green - See all my reviews, May 26, 2009

    For the price, excellent!

    VERY inexpensive, yet high quality. I would trust it with my DSLR, but not my 4X5. It can handle the weight, but moving the ball under slight tension would be a little difficult with something around the 8lb range.CONS (let's get them out of the way..):* The head, under slight tension isn't very smooth for fine adjustments, but still works well.* The bubble level sits under the lens..? If you want to get everything level, THEN put the camera on the head, it will be functional.. yet, the point of a ballhead is ease of adjustment on the fly, isn't it? Just ignore it.PROS (if the opening line didn't sell you already):* Price (or lack there of)* Build quality* Ease of use* Quick release plate that actually works!

    Worked fine after tightening set screws

    This seems to be a fairly good ball head, although because of my inexperience with ball heads I'm not sure it can be described as "heavy duty". I had some initial problems with it because one of the hex head set screws became loose fairly soon after I started using it, but that problem was solved with a drop of lock-tite and an allen-head wrench. It was scary before I fixed the problem because my camera almost came off while hiking with it attached to the ball head and tripod. Another screw, a phillips head set screw also became loose. Again, after tightening this screw all was ok. But, these screws should never have come loose in ordinary use. They are meant to be tight and to remain tight.One other minor problem is in regard to the quick release plate. There is a very tiny amount of play (almost imperceptible) between the QR plate and the ball head. It doesn't seem to affect picture taking, but I plan to do something to eliminate the play.

    Basic Tripod Ball head

    0 5/5 Charlie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tripod Monopod Metal BALL HEAD Quick Release Plate By Fancierstudio 002H (Electronics) Yeah, no bells and whistles here. Just a basic metal tripod ball head with single balance bubble and manual safety(too bad not auto).... and it works great. Using this on my 5D Mk 2 with 24-70F2.8L Mk 1 and Velbon Ultrastick M50 recommended by cheesycam. This model is more suitable for a monopod as it's not nearly as big as the Fancier 001H model(but it costs more?!?!?! and supports more?!?!?!). You'll need an adapter for 1/4 monopods which cost nearly half as much as this ball head (Manfrotto 088LBP Adapter 1/4-Inch- 20 to 3/8-Inch with flange). Overall, I feel that I've got my money's worth with this purchase. My gear feels very secure using these ball heads. I now have the Fancier 001H to use with my tripod and 002H to use with my monopod. It's nice that the plates are interchangeable, saves me a lot of trouble switching plates. 0, February 15, 2012

    Does the job with sturdy construction

    0 4/5 Frank Skidazzle - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tripod Monopod Metal BALL HEAD Quick Release Plate By Fancierstudio 002H (Electronics) Minimalist yet effective. This does everything I'd expect it to do. Thick parts, sturdy construction, feels secure.My only gripe is the pin that holds secure the camera's base plate. I've hurt my finger multiple times trying to fasten and unfasten this tiny lock. It's not very intuitive and doesn't get much better with time, but you will never doubt whether your camera is secure, so I just deducted one star.
