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.

    Rebranded but a solid system

    0 5/5 dan - See all my reviews This review is from: Pergear®Heavy Duty Photography Camera Tripod Ball Head 360 Degree Fluid Rotation Tripod Ballhead For DSLR Camera Quick Release Plate (Electronics) I've seen this exact same tripod system re-branded with so many different names but it really is a great system. Sturdy, easy to use, portable, and you can keep the mounting plate on your camera and use the loop to attach it to a Black Rapid Strap. The loop is super solid so no need to worry that it will snap off and drop your camera. It's also pretty compatible with most other systems out there like the Arca Swiss. 0, December 30, 2014

    Deflects and changes camera position as tightened, fails to serve intended purpose.

    A ballhead should allow you to smoothly adjust the camera in all angles when the knobs are loose, then clamp the camera firmly into the desired position when tightened. Of course different ballheads will support different equipment weight, so you do need to choose a model designed for your setup. In my case I'm using a Canon 70D with a variety of Canon, Tamron and Sigma lenses, no combination of which comes close to the Pergear's maximum 8kg weight specification.The problem with this ballhead is immediately apparent when you first mount and try adjusting the camera. When you want to adjust the camera position your choice is to loosen the main knob to the point that the camera is completely loose, or leave some tension on the main knob and wind up with gritty, jerky camera movement. Perhaps this can be forgiven in a ball head costing only $30. However, the fatal flaw is that when you try to tighten the main knob the entire ball flexes in the base causing the camera to... 1/5 Mark (NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent, Strong, Lightweight, (79g), Inexpensive Ball Head; Perfect For Hiking

    I bought this to use on a dual use trekking pole monopod, and to mount my Canon DSLR T5i with an 18-135mm lens and a battery grip. The total combined weight of my Canon T5i camera, 18-135mm lens, and battery grip is exactly 3 lbs. The Ball can firmly secure my camera setup without a sweat. I Do Not have to tighten the screw hard at all to firmly lock the camera in place. Only a small amount of force is necessary to firmly lock the camera where I want it, and the camera does not sag or start to droop whatsoever, in either landscape orientation or, turned 90 degrees, in portrait orientation.At first I was concerned because when I turned the camera 90 degrees to portrait orientation the camera began to droop forward because of the fairly heavy zoom lens, but that turned out to be user error, or in other words, my fault. It didn't sag at the ball joint whatsoever. The problem was I didn't have the camera screwed on tight enough to the ball head.

    Loved/hated it.

    Let me start by saying I was extremely surprised at how good this tripod was when I got it. It's easy to use, has some great features and cosmetically looks great. The ball head was probably my favourite feature. It's a light weight small tripod, that's great for traveling and carrying around when exploring. And It comes with a padded shoulder strap bag that's great.Here's what I didn't like.. The twist release knobs on the legs require too much work. If this tripod had snap release extenders it would have been the perfect compact tripod. The tripod, as well as the twist release knobs are plastic, so don't expect it to last you years. After the first week, one of the legs wouldn't tighten properly so I wasn't able to have all the legs the same length. Upon trying to screw it, to get the legs even again, the threading stripped, not allowing me to tighten the leg, then that leg came out of place, and I wasn't able to get it back in.This isn't a bad tripod, but... 3/5 Frankie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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 Nate - See all my reviews, October 11, 2013

    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 (Atlanta, GA United States) - See all my reviews, November 12, 2013

    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.

    Very good, lightweight tripod

    This tripod is well-made and considering it's relatively light weight, it is still highly functional for photography and video.1. It comes with a very nice padded bag in computer-generated camo. If you do nature photography, you'll appreciate the camo bag.2. There is a hook on the underside of the center post, for hanging a rock bag. This can help you stabilize the tripod on uneven ground.3. You can take out the center post and use it as a monopod.4. The ball head is smooth when turning it to adjust the camera. There is a pan knob, an angle adjustment knob and a tight-loose knob.5. It has bubble levels for positioning the camera (very helpful for video.)6. Height max Max Height: 1560mm which works out to a shade over five feet7.

    Sturdy tripod, smooth panning and tilting ball head

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:31 Mins This is a nice tripod and has a lot of features that I really liked. Photography is one of my serious hobbies and I own a number of tripods. This tripod met four of my requirements for a tripod and fell short on one.My requirements:❌ Quick release legs. This tripod does not have quick release feet. Each collapsible leg is made out of 4 sections and is released by twist locking mechanism. Quick release legs is something I find extremely helpful - often to catch the desired short setting up tripod in a few seconds is the difference between getting or not getting my shot. For this reason I use this tripod in my home studio where speed of set up is never a factor. The twist lock mechanism is slow, but holds well.✅ Ability to attach a quick release plate.
