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.
