If you’re se­ri­ous about pho­tog­ra­phy, you’ll find some in­ter­est­ing equip­ment on the mar­ket that could help you im­prove your skills and take that win­ning shot. THE GIMPRO DOOR MOUNT The GimPro swivel head clamp-on door bracket gives you free­dom and ver­sa­til­ity to pho­to­graph an­i­mals in their nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment. Owner and avid wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher Ralph Pollack started the GimPro busi­ness out of frus­tra­tion for the lack of equip­ment avail­able on the mar­ket, and the GimPro was born on his own De­fender. “What’s great about the GimPro is that it’s a uni­ver­sal fit, and mounts on the out­side of any ve­hi­cle’s door, and doesn’t im­pede on the win­dow. It fits and re­moves within min­utes,” he said. “It’s sta­ble and se­cure and gives you a lot of ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity. With a stan­dard set up like a bean bag, your field of view is around 50 de­grees, left to right pan­ning. But with the GimPro, that changes to about 120 - 130 de­grees,” Ralph adds. It’s rated to carry up to 800mm lenses. Con­structed from alu­minium and stain­less steel, it’s largely main­te­nance free. Another great as­pect of the GimPro door mount is the sealed ball bear­ings, which puts it in a league of its own. “Most mounts use plas­tic bushes, and pan­ning and ti­tling is not as smooth as on the GimPro. It’s geared to­wards the pro­fes­sional, more se­ri­ous am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher as your 15kg cam­era rig is com­pletely weight­less on the GimPro. “This is a prod­uct that’ll def­i­nitely im­prove your pho­tog­ra­phy,” Ralph says.
