I recently made a "sizeable" purchase with NatureScapes and I couldn't be happier with the services provided! I was shopping for a new Gitzo tripod, Wimberley head and several related accessories. One of the things that immediately caught my attention was that NatureScapes offered discount "bundle" pricing on the tripod+leg covers and the Wimberley head+cover that none of the other "big name (internet) stores" offered. NatureScapes also sells a custom-designed Gitzo “safety plate” which adds increased strength to the tripod head for supporting heavy lenses. The safety plate was “free” with the purchase of the tripod, so that was another benefit for me. NatureScapes provided lightning-quick responses to multiple email questions (both before, and after my purchase), and the owner of the company spoke to me, at length, on the telephone. Processing and delivery of the order was quick, convenient, and painless (I used PayPal) – with free shipping, no less! As a first-time customer, I am glad to say that it was an absolutely flawless transaction, and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with NatureScapes again.
I just received my order, everything was in good condition and properly packed. Thanks again for the great service you offered, I will definitely recommend your company to other photographers and will order from you in the future.

Mike Gallo about Heat Company Heat 3 Smart Gloves:
March 3, 2015
Good but no cigar
Advantages: Certainly keep your hands warm
Disadvantages: These are not all that well thought out for photographers. They should have had the index finger independently accessible just like they did with the thumb. As it is you need to have your 4-fingers out of the mitten part to use your gear, and if you are out in the Chicago area this February you know that it is too cold to use it that way for very long. Also, given the disadvantages they are overpriced.
Ralph about Heat Company Heat 3 Smart Gloves:
February 27, 2015
What a great pair of gloves. Used them last week while photographing frozen ice covered lighthouses on the shore of Lake Michigan. The temperature never got over +15 with wind and my fingers never got cold. I did use small hand warmers in the hand warmer pocket. Very happy with this purchase.
Advantages: Warm and comfortable. They are a must hor photo shooting in cold weather.
Disadvantages: None, they're perfect.
Fred Heidepriem about Pelican Padded Tripod Bag - 48" Length:
February 13, 2015
Great bag. Tough build, great padding.
Advantages: Long straps allow easy carry. Three pockets for accessories.
Disadvantages: None I can see.
Lloyd about Gura Gear Sabi Sack:
January 28, 2015
The bag was as described and well made. It was just EXACTLY what I was looking for!
I opted to use plastic beads as a filler whichI purchased at a Michael's craft store. I have found that the beads provide easier shaping of the bags than other fillers I have used. I currently have about 4 1/2 # of the beads in the bag-but experimentation continues. The shaping issue is important when setting up the bag for use because there are a number of positions in which the bag can be employed.
Advantages: Quality of construction and product versatility.
Disadvantages: None identified.
Tamara about Gitzo 6x Carbon Fiber Bushing Shims:
January 22, 2015
Happy to have found the bushing needed for my GT2531. Fast delivery, easy replacement for broken part.

Ed Cramer about Think Tank Photo Cable Management 30 v2.0:
January 2, 2015
The Think Tank Photo Cable Management 30 v2.0 is well made. It is exactly as advertised coming with cable ties that help in securing the cables. This version is the size that works for me. I can store camera cables, the charger, iPhone & iPad cables. The clear front helps to see what is inside.

Elizabeth about NEOS Navigator 5 STABILicers®:
December 16, 2014
Been looking forward to getting a pair of Neos for some time.
Advantages: Cannot beat the waterproof protection or how lightweight these over boots are.
Disadvantages: I am not by any means a heavy girl. I do however have muscular calves. The neos just barely fit my calves. That is the only complaint I have with them.
December 12, 2014
Increases the versatility of my CT314.
Advantages: Now I can use my tripod rather than my pack for support when taking low angle shots.
Disadvantages: None found so far.
Alan Fortune about LensCoat 4Xpandable Long Lens Bag:
November 14, 2014
I needed a bag long enough to accommodate not just a a still camera but a video camera as well while moving from one location to another while on site. The lens and body along with a Really Right Stuff "long lens support" modified to grab the camera body is approximately 22 to 27.5 inches (depending on setup) without the hood extended. The Lens Coat bag is well made but it should have more protective padding and/or better stiffener material in the bag, particularly in the fold up sections. Maybe there's a way Lens Coat could modify their design or offer an optional insert. The modified stiffer design could telescope inside the bag to the changing height? For now I plan to fabricate an insert achieve what I need.
In my opinion the 4Xpandable bag is a great bag and is so close to being perfect and with a few tweaks would be.
Advantages: Well made adaptable bag from a company that seems to really care about the client being content with there purchase.
Disadvantages: The bag could be even longer and have more padding and stiffness. The lid should have a complete zipper to better seal dust out of the bag.
pat about NEOS Voyager Overshoe:
November 10, 2014
These overboots are great. Not waterproof as rubber boots are, but they do a great job and are easy to use
Ed about LensCoat Gimbal Pouch:
October 24, 2014
The LensCoat Gimbal Pouch is nicely padded and has a draw string that closes the pouch securely and easy to open. The Wimberley Gimbal head just fits. At first it was difficult trying to get the gimbal head in the pouch. It seams there is only one way that it will fit and that is tight.
Advantages: Nice storage place for the gimbal head. Padded. Choice of solid color or camo.
Disadvantages: A little tight getting the head in the pouch.
Ed about Wimberley Head II:
October 24, 2014
Wimberley makes a high quality product. They are committed to their work and are located in Virginia. The Wimberley head II is easy to set up and does a great job with large telephoto lenses.
Advantages: Sturdy, well constructed, easy to setup and use
Chris Hugosson about Wimberley C-12 Quick Release Clamp:
October 22, 2014
I want to standardize on arca-swiss (AS) plates but few video heads use that standard. Hence I needed this clamp to convert one of Gitzo's plates to AS. This solution works well enough.
Advantages: With the three extra tightening screws, very secure on a QR plate.
Sturdy and nice, large knob.
Disadvantages: Requires many turns to tighten or loosen.
For my use case, there is a small penalty in weight and height.
Al Lipsey about Essential Photo Gear Leg Armor:
October 20, 2014
Absolutely love this product. No more picking brush junk out of your socks and jeans and the knee pads are a blessing on these old knees. Great product.
Advantages: A blessing in disguise.
Harry about Apex Mini Beanbag:
October 1, 2014
Very functional and performed as advertised. A less expensive 'bean bag" would work if you only use the bag. If you are mounting support for a large lens, then this is a very good idea. (Gimbal with 400mm)
Susan about GCI Outdoor Quik-E-Seat Stool with Padding:
September 29, 2014
Best small fold up chairs. Amazing with the back support. Took less than 2 weeks for delivery all the way to Australia. Thank you for prompt dispatch.
Advantages: Prompt service.
Great product with back support.
Disadvantages: Delivery costs to Australia.
marcel deray about NEOS Adventurer Overshoes:
September 17, 2014
The shoes should close better at the top, very clumsy system. Would have made them a little taller also
Advantages: probably waterproof
Disadvantages: as above
Richard Duvall about NEOS Adventurer Overshoes:
September 17, 2014
First of all, you can stop price shopping. You won't find a better price (at least for this model) anywhere. Shipping was fast and free and a special offer at the time I purchased these allowed me to get a pair of insoles at no additional cost. Read and understand the size chart and you won't be disappointed by getting the wrong size.
So far they look like a good product - better than any other option I have tried in over 50 years of outdoor work and recreation.
Advantages: I haven't had a chance to use these yet in wet weather so I can't comment on much except appearance so far.
1. lightweight for an overshoe
2. appear very durable
3. adequate sole tread without looking like it would pick up a lot of mud.
4. fit well over the shoes I intend to wear
Disadvantages: 1. The material, while durable looking, is not real stiff in the uppers. The top hits me right at mid-calf and I fear that there may not be enough stiffness to keep the uppers from slipping down. A boot that extended past my calf may stay up better. Too tall I guess. This may not turn out to be a problem - haven't had opportunity to use them yet.
2. The strap and buckle that cinches the boot tight at the ankle doesn't have a good means to hold it tight. The buckle doesn't cinch tight to the strap and the velcro to hold the strap down doesn't extend far enough to keep the strap tight. I fixed this by using contact cement to extend the velcro on the boot. (Hope they don't leak - I won't be able to send them back :)
Richard Duvall about NEOS Insole Replacement:
September 17, 2014
Can't comment on the insulation qualities yet but they are good to use when you want to change from one style of shoe to another. Without the insole in place my NEOS fit over my winter boots or hiking shoes. With the insole in place the overshoes fit well with my running shoes and other casual shoes.
Terry about Colorado's Fall Colors eBook by Jason Hatfield:
September 16, 2014
Great resource and time saver for anyone looking for fall colors in Colorado. He's done all the work except hold your camera and take the picture for you!
C Bostock about Visual Echoes FX-5 "Better Beamer" Flash Extender:
September 7, 2014
Works very well with my Canon EX430ll / SIGMA 150-500.
I ordered a Camo Lens Coat Beamer Keeper to keep the parts together and also an extra lens.
Advantages: Simple, light, easy to set up and use.
Disadvantages: No complaints
John Torcasio about AquaTech Soft Caps for Canon and Nikon Lenses:
September 3, 2014
got one for my Canon EF 300mm f2.8L IS fit is tight and snug ,But after short time it pop's itself out starting from the top
Advantages: easy fit and to carry
Disadvantages: bulge in the middle when its annoying and can slip of on its own
Walter Baliero about PowerEx MH-C801D Eight Cell 1-Hour Charger:
August 30, 2014
Very dangerous gadget, at the third time I used it set on fire destroying the whole batteries that were charging, also heard it happens the same to somebody else. I wouldn’t recommend it.
Disadvantages: Set on fire
Elinor Osborn about Nature Photo Keywords Birds, Mammals, and Plants Keyword List - English Only:
August 29, 2014
The price is extremely reasonable in light of how extensive the keywords are. I'm glad because I found shortcomings.
Advantages: Coverage in Latin names for birds, mammals and plants is extensive and world-wide.
Disadvantages: There are far more keywords here than I need so it is not feasible for me to export the whole file into my Bridge keyword list which would lengthen it so long that it would be very time-consuming to check through it-- which I do for each of my images. So I decided to choose only the keywords I would use and copy them to my keywords in Bridge. That turned out to be one keyword "aves" that I needed to add to my own keywords. I can easily get the current Latin name of a particular subject from the internet. Latin names do change, so a current name is important as well as the old name.
Also, animal and plant names are listed as singular. All keywords should be plural (or both singular and plural if not just an added "s") so a search can find either singulars or plurals.
Ron Huelse about Induro 534-CM34 Carbon CM Monopod:
August 29, 2014
The carbon monopod is great-light weight and easy to store-I would recommend this monopod to anyone serious about taking photos and wishing his equipment could be lighter to carry
Advantages: light weight and easy to break down and store
Disadvantages: THERE ARE NO DISADVANTAGES
Steve Kohls about Gitzo GM5561T Series 5 6X Carbon Fiber Monopod:
August 25, 2014
