Tripod Ball Heads & Giottos MH1000 | Photo Talk

Tripod Ball Heads & Giottos MH1000
   On this episode of Photo Talk we talk about tripod ball heads and the Giottos MH1000. So if you have been thinking about up grading your tripod to this ball head, then you do not want to miss this video. Also I would love to hear your comments below about what tripods and tripod heads you use.


About this topic:

   Only the past few years have I started using tripods. I have had a older cheap tripod I picked up from Walmart back in the states for quite a few years, but I only really used it for my JVC video camera and then my Canon G12. To be honest it was sturdy enough for both. When I upgraded cameras to my Canon 600D, I started thinking it was likely time to get a little better tripod. While it was enough for the camera and my EF-S 10-22mm lens, you start adding the battery grip and it becomes a little to heavy for my taste. So when I purchased my Canon 70D a few months ago I made my mind up I needed something better. While looking online I came across the Dolica ProLine tripod and backpack combo. I can still soundly say it was a very good deal and I still use this tripod and backpack. The only thing is that the ball head, while sturdy enough for the weight of my camera, was not made for panoramic photography. So this is when I decided to purchase the Giottos MH1000 ball head. It had very good reviews and I feel its a solid investment. The only bad part is I now want to up grade my tripod to a nice carbon fiber one..

Learn How To Setup Identity Plate & Watermarks In Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Branding is important for business growth and this tutorial will help you start setting up Adobe Lightroom 5's identity plate, plus step you through adding watermarks with in Lightroom's built in watermark tools to display your branding and copyrights on your images.


About this tutorial:

   This is another tutorial were I am focusing on the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom. So many tutorials show photographers how to work in the develop module, but few show anything else about Lightroom. So I am going through every detail of Lightroom and teaching about every detail of the program. In this video tutorial I focus on two things, the Identity Plate and Watermarks. Now I have combined these for two reasons, one they are both about branding and two the ID plate tutorial would be ridiculously short. But since they are simple, I am at least able to provide solid setup detail for anyone needing to use these features in Lightroom 5.

Obama Administration Will Make Photographers Register Their UAV | Joe's Video Blog

Many photographers are taking to the skies with quad copters and other various unmanned aircraft to get amazing views for both video and still photos. But looks like this could come to an end as the US pushes to put strict limits and force registration of these air craft.
