How-do-you-do,

I’m trying to take photos on a tripod and was wondering if there’south any to take vertical shots while the camera is mounted (since it won’t allow me to turn the camera while it’south mounted on the tripod). Or is there another way to stabilize the photographic camera as much equally possible while taking the shot vertically?

I tried without the tripod and found a lot of camera shake mistiness when I uploaded the pics.

Whatsoever help would be profoundly appreciated. Thank you,


Big Mike

Nearly tripod heads exercise allow you to flip or plough the head, so that information technology’due south holding the camera vertically. If yours doesn’t, it must be a very old or very cheap tripod.

Yeah, like what Mike said, your tripod head should tilt 90 degrees. Await for a knob closest to the lesser correct or left mitt corner of the pad your camera sits on. That’due south probably the unlocking mechanism to tilt your photographic camera pad for upright photos.

Cheers for the responses.

This is what I take

So you’re probably right. A new tripod’s not in my budget though. Whatever tips on how to stabilize as much as possible if I accept to go without i?

I’m shooting at AV, ISO 100-200, f/xiii, which has gotten me pretty good results with the lighting i’ve been able to get in a little studio box i fabricated last calendar week. but w/out the tripod, the all-time one I got nevertheless came out to exist a chip blurry in some areas. Thanks again,

Yeah, like what Mike said, your tripod head should tilt 90 degrees. Look for a knob closest to the bottom right or left hand corner of the pad your camera sits on. That’s probably the unlocking mechanism to tilt your camera pad for upright photos.

Ah, just found information technology, cheers maulrat! I won’t lie, I’m embarrassed. I’ve had this for four months and only figured out that screw that saturday in that location on the lesser right corner had a purpose.

lol Thanks

It looks like that tripod is really designed for video cameras, even though it says its for both. If that’s the case, information technology won’t actually have an easy mode of turning it 90 degrees, cause video cameras wouldn’t need to do that. If y’all only really use information technology for taking photographs, yous might consider craigslisting it and picking upward 1 designed specifically for photography. The brawl-articulation heads are usually piece of cake to piece of work and fairly cheap. Assuming your not putting a existent big camera on the top of the tripod, you shouldn’t accept too much problem find a tripod in your price range. Yous might even go more bang for your buck looking for a used ane.

Are you telling me that a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal tripod head is old and cheap? How about Arca Swiss Mono Ball. May be old only sure not cheap. The Mono Ball is doable only a niggling hard. Perchance something similar a Manfrotto Q2 50 Subclass
