Long exposure shots require a steady hand – or the right tripod. For any exposure time which corresponds to the reciprocal of the focal length, you should use a tripod, otherwise you risk taking blurred and shaky pictures. This isn't just an issue at night or at dusk. When using a 200-mm telephoto lens, the maximum exposure time for free-hand photography under the rule of thumb is 1/200 of a second or longer. An image stabilizer may give the photographer some leeway, but at this point the possibilities are limited. Reducing exposure time by using high ISO values will result in poorer image quality. So-called background noise becomes more noticeable when the ISO value is increased.
High-quality camera tripod with head
With the Rollei C6i set up and the matching panoramic 62Q ball head, you will be well equipped for any shooting situation where the available light is not good enough for good photographs. The package is aimed at dedicated travel and outdoor photographers who do not want to compromise on stability and flexibility and who don't want to carry an unreasonable amount of equipment. Lock the tripod legs in a horizontal position and use the minimum working height of only 19 cm to take macro shots of plants or insects located almost directly below on the ground. In winter, you will appreciate the advantages of the insulating foam on the tripod legs, which protects your hands from any direct contact with the cold metal when wearing gloves will prevent you from operating the camera. Equip the tripod feet with spikes to ensure that your equipment is secure even on loose ground, snow or ice. Turn your tripod into a monopod in just a few steps – this gives you a safe solution to be able to follow the action with a heavy telephoto lens at any time with moving targets such as at sporting events or with animal photography. Discover the photographic possibilities with the tripod and ball head shown in the image design.
Accessories: 62Q Panorama ball head, 3 spikes, replacement, rubber feet, wrist strap, multi-purpose spanner, hook, beltbag for monopod and tripod bag
