More from Mario Genz


Klasse Artikel und kann dem ganzen zustimmen, auch wenn ich selbst nur seit 2 Jahren im Bereich Wildlife Fotografie tätig bin – rein Hobby. Hatte damals das LionRock 25 und das war schon ein klasse Stativ. Nun mit Camouflage-Design setzt Rollei noch eins drauf bzw. bedient auch eine besondere Zielgruppe. Es ist schon erstaunlich wie die Tiere jede noch so kleine Bewegung, helle Farbe oder eben den Geruch wahrnehmen. Im Bereich Wildlife gibt es meiner Meinung nach noch zu wenig Equipment oder Möglichkeiten sich gut zu tarnen – bzw. man brauch dann spezielle Cover usw.

Da muss ich wohl mal den Mario besuchen oder auf eine Fototour einladen :).

Viel Freude mit dem klasse Stativ. VG Alex


Beim beabsichtigten fotografieren von vielen Säugetierarten spielt neben der Tarnung auch der Wind eine entscheidende Rolle!
