Transformer: Gitzo Man

Newer Older

First there was the Michelin here's GITZO man!

Gitzo GH2750QR off centre ball head (on G2330 tripod)

To show movement options of the head multiple images were combined in Photoshop CS3. The android resemblance was not intended...but looks cool...

Photographed with a D300 with Micro-Nikkor 105mm F2.8, mounted on a Gitzo G2220 tripod. I used a historic G275 off centre ballhead as the GH2750QR is being photographed (above...!) for a story in JPGMAG.

Settings: VR tuned off, D300 set to mirror lock-up. triggered with remote release. f36, each image 10 second exposure.

Lighting: halogen (desk) lamp close-up from bottom left, two-bulb low power halogen lamp distant from top right.

    This is wonderful !
    I have a head just like this and it NEVER occured to me to take a shot like this one.

    The probability of my stealing your idea is fairly high.
    I would like to see if I can do the combining in camera without using photoshop.
