Do you have any photography trips coming up?

Posted by Leigh Diprose on 7th Jun 2018

No matter how far you have travelled, there is always more to explore - ask any photographer! Travel photography is one of those genres we all aspire to pursue - even if we don’t end up travelling we still like to ask the question, “Do you have any photography trips coming up?”

With constant formulated ‘bucket lists’ of places they must see, the travelling photographer is always thinking about their next destination and the type of equipment they should take along for the ride.

Here at Acratech in Pomona, California, we know this, which is why we develop elegant, strong and durable gear that assists photographers no matter where they travel.

Take our Nomad Ballhead as a prime example, did you know that it is designed to be as lightweight and versatile as possible and weighs less than 1lb. ?

For instance, when you add a levelling base to the bottom of the Nomad Ballhead, you get an instant panoramic head which allows seamless stitching for panoramas. We marked the degrees of rotation around the ballhead to ensure all your photos are aligned and captured correctly while on location.

Finally, it is worth mentioning you can mount your camera quickly onto the head thanks to the integrated Arca Swiss mounting system. It is that simple.

So, whenever you plan your next trip locally or abroad think about the sort of equipment you pack. Investigate in including an Acratech ballhead as it will make the world of difference when travelling and setting up your shot.

On the other hand, if you are new to this game and want to pursue travel photography, we encourage you to think about the offerings out there and then take a closer look at our ballheads, in particular, our Nomad. You won’t be disappointed.

A review from National Geographic Creative Photographer Jonathan Kingston

The Acratech GP ballhead and its little brother the GP-S are - in my opinion - the finest tripod ballheads ever created. I have been using the GP ballhead for nearly a decade. In that time it has been accidentally doused with salt water, inadvertantley dropped into fine beach sand, ridden for miles and miles in [...]

Will we all be shooting smaller sensor cameras in the future?

Will we all be shooting smaller sensor cameras in the future? We can see what amazing strides have been made in cell phone cameras that have tiny sensors (about 1/3”). Of course, they are not up to DSLR quality. Next, I was looking at the new Sony RX10 IV it has a 24-600 2.4-4.0 lens [...]

The new Fuji GFX50S

I was able to play with the new mirrorless medium format camera from Fuji, the GFX 50S. The sensor on this camera is 1.7X bigger than a full frame DSLR. The first thing I noticed is that it was smaller and lighter than I expected. In fact it is about the same overall length and weight as a [...]
