Wimberley tripod head

Throughout this project I have been testing out the Wimberley Head version II. The Wimberley Head (WH) is a specialised tripod head aimed at photographers using large, heavy telephoto lenses. I was keen to put it through its paces to see how it performed.

My main interest in a tripod head is whether it allows for easy and accurate control of a lens. The WH has been cleverly designed to allow you to rotate a large lens around its centre of gravity, which essentially means that a heavy lens can be moved about without any effort at all. I found

Which tripod should I buy?

I have just bought my first DSLR, and as I live by the coast I would like to have a go at long-exposure photography so that I can capture the movement of the water in my seascapes. I’d also like to try shooting some waterfalls with this technique too.

I know that I will need a tripod in order to avoid blurry shots due to camera shake when using slow shutter speeds, but I am a little overwhelmed by the number of choices available. Have you got any advice on what a beginner on a budget should look out for?

Larging it

I’ve lost count of the number of these machines I’ve had in my workshop for review, and for the most part they’ve a(l been very similar. This mortiser from Axminster is something of an exception as it incorporates a number of useful developments to improve its performance. The table is much larger than usual, and this is effectively made even bigger by the extension wings at each side. The fence is adjusted forwards and backwards on a rack-and-pinion arrangement, controlled by rotating a lever on the left-hand side of the column. Once it’s in position, it’s locked by the use

Impressive taskmaster

Some us will remember the Black and Decker system where you couid add different accessories to its standard mains powered drill to turn it into a saw, sander or jigsaw. A few may have fond memories, others less so. My dad had one that was hit and miss to say the least.
