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.

    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

    The Good the Bad the Ugly

    0 3/5 PaulC - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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) The Good : Inexpensive, holds securely when tightened, no post tightening sag.The Bad: The rubber like gripping bands on the adjustment knobs have a very disagreeable pungent smell.The warmer it is, the worse the smell.The Ugly: Tightening either the rotation or main ball locking knobs causes the ball to turn slightly which throws off the framing. In most situations the rotation can be compensated for by taking it into account during the initial framing, However, using that technique is too difficult when shooting astronomical objects in the dark at the very inconvenient angles which often occur when shooting the sky. For astronomical shooting I'd give it only 2 stars.I do not recommend this ball head for the Bad and Ugly reasons above, but give it 3 stars because it is a usable product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 28, 2015

    Ravelli APGL5 Professional 65" Ball Head Camera Video Photo Tripod with Quick Release Plate and Carry Bag

    Photography (Ravelli)

    Reversible Legs: Allows the tripod to fold to a mere 18.5" without the head and 21" with the head, making it easy to carry and store when not in use.
    Panning Handle for Video: The handle allows for smooth panning for video. The handle replaces the photo panning lock knob for smoother panning.
    Center Column Height Reduction: The bottom part of the center column is removable. The center column is still reversible to achieve low angle shots, but is not necessary.
    Monopod Option: All 3 legs are removable and each can be used as a monopod. Simply unscrew any one of the legs and the ball head from the tripod, then screw the ball head directly onto the top of the leg. The standard 3/8" adapter at the top of the legs allow other standard 3/8" tripod heads to fit as well.
    Single Twist Leg Locks: Twist leg locks only require a single-handed 270° twist to open and a single-handed 270° twist to close. With one hand and a quick turn of the wrist, the tripod is ready.

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

    Defective? Bad Sample?

    I switched over to arca-swiss style after purchasing the Me-Foto tripod to use with my mirrorless cameras. So far, no heads have been nearly as solid as my manfrotto ball head, but my manfrotto takes the huge RC4 plates which are simply impractical for small cameras. So if you're buying this head, have reasonable expectations. It's not a professional head by any means.Since the arca-swiss plates work so well on smaller cameras, and because that's basically your only option if you're using a L bracket on your camera, I decided I wanted to convert my entire system of tripods and grip to accept arca-swiss. Of course, arca-swiss and RRS want you to spend ungodly money for their heads, which leaves a person such as myself who is looking to buy multiple heads to have to go the Chinese route.This head ticks off most of the boxes: it's machined well, includes a tension knob and safety lock knob, supports a reasonable amount of weight, and is stupid cheap.

    0 5/5 Robin (Palm Bay, FL United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sunpak 620-PISTOLGRPQR Tripod, Ball Head (Camera) I was looking for a pistol grip head, but many of them run about $200-$400 range. This little beauty fits my budget and I love it. I used to go nuts trying to get my tripod adjusted during nature outings and miss the shot. This pistol grip adjustment is very natural and quick. I use it with a Canon Rebel Xti and a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM and a lightweight Bogen tripod. So far I have nothing negative to say about it. Great product. Fantastic value.

    Best camera positioning device yet invented

    0 5/5 Daniel Jones - See all my reviews, January 23, 2008

    Simply a great tool

    I use my Sunpak Pistol Grip with my tripod as well as my mono-pod and find it to be ideal for my uses. Adjusting the camera takes only seconds compared with the time it takes to adjust a traditional swivel head. All I have to do is squeeze the handle and when the camera is in place release it. It holds the camera, even my larger cameras, very still with no drifting or wandering. I have had tripods in the past that were almost impossible to adjust with any accuracy. Often the act of tightening the head would cause it to move and some heads had a tendency to "store energy" and adjust themselves a few seconds after I had everything tightened down. This Pistol grip keeps my camera in place without any problems.The Ballsocket Head is a little on the bulky side but it is so well built I can't complain. I suspect that it's heft is what keeps the camera under control. I had the Pistol Grip head on my mono-pod during a day of hiking up and down steep walls of a gorge with... 5/5 Matthew A.

    Amazing Quality, Very Sturdy, Worth Every penny!

    This is my first "Expensive" tripod/monopod setup. I own the Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod and the Manfrotto 680B Monopod. I use this ball head on both and it is very flexible in terms of the wide array of angles/movements you can have when using this ball head. At first it is a little weird and takes some getting used to. In the first few minutes I felt like tossing it in the box and returning it, but I gave it a few hours and went out experimenting with it. Its a beauty!The addition of the friction knob, even though I have not owned the previous version, is a great feature and just adds to the joy of using this ball head. It creates friction on the ball head so that your camera doesn't just fall sideways or forward if you release your grip on it, it might slowly move, but not like a free fall. My setup weighs in at 3 lbs and is the reason I didn't get the 496. I don't see myself owning a 70-200 VR II anytime soon so I don't mind the 8 lbs limit this ball head has... 5/5 C.

They are all well made, excellent products. They lock securely are easy to use and make my photography more enjoyable. You can spend hundreds of dollars on ballheads like Arca Swiss and others and for huge lenses like the 500 or 600mm or the 2.8 70-200 zooms these are the heads to buy but for the ordinary hobbist photographer using mid range zooms or the variable aperture zooms in the 70-300 range these Manfrotto heads are all you need at a reasonable price. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 22, 2010
