What to look out for in nature photography and why is camouflage so important?

Mario Genz speaks from experience when he names the numerous details that go into good wildlife photography arrives Of course, the most important thing is that there is no interference with the lives of wild animals. It is important to always be informed about the following things:

  • Is currently breeding season and the animals are disturbed?
  • Will enter an area that is under conservation?
  • Could the animal be expelled together with the pack through the admissionen?

Nevertheless, photographers have to get as close as possible to the place of action position and remain there as undetected as possible. That's why the camouflage in the wild thus a crucial element if impressive, unadulterated moments are to be captured.

Our tester was able to experience first-hand how important the best possible camouflage is. When photographing a deer, the desired results only came with the right camouflage. This is often on Camouflage tape in camouflage colors set. This is then wrapped around the camera lenses, tripod legs and, if necessary, the tripod head. When it comes to clothing, the photographer advises using colors that are usually found in nature. It should also be noted that clothing can get dirty when trying to camouflage, for example when lying down on the floor. Another helpful tool that Genz uses frequently is this s camouflage tent. He is good at this position nature and make himself comfortable inside so that he can stand it for several hours before exciting shots are taken.t.

Practical test: The Lion Rock 25 Mark II carbon tripod in camouflage design

Previously, our tester had used camouflage tape to wrap the legs of his tripods and corresponding lenses for camouflage purposes. However, due to its limited durability, the use of camouflage tape quickly leads to increased costs. In addition, this is not the best solution in terms of sustainability and the preservation of natural habitats. For this reason we have Mario Genz our proven Lion Rock 25 Mark II carbon tripod in the new Camouflage design provided for testing. As already mentioned, wildlife photography is not only about fast telephoto lenses, but also about the best possible camouflage at.

To get a good impression of the big range of services of Lion Rock 25 Mark II Genz extensively tested the tripod in various landscapes and situations. The low weight and the built-in stainless steel spikes, which are perfect for muddy surfaces, particularly impressed the photographer. Also the high load capacity was crucial for him, since he was his animal moments with particularly fast and large lenses.

It doesn't matter whether you're sitting in a camouflage tent for hours or hiking in the rain, the tripod was for everyone conceivable situations. through the short center column were even special ground level shots anytime possible. Even in strong winds and using long telephoto lenses with a focal length of 600 millimeters for razor-sharp images, this was possible carbon tripod no compromises and cared for shake-free recordings.

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!
