Berlebach has been manufacturing beautifully finished pieces of German craftsmanship for over a century. Then as now, the natural advantages of wood continually appeal to discriminating shooters. Handling a wooden support in extremes of heat or cold is quite a different experience than that of a metal or even carbon fiber. Wood just seems not to care.

Despite wood's impervious nature to temperature and its general asthetic appeal, the best reason to choose wood over any other material for a lens or optic support is its incredible ability to absorb vibrations. Wood simply does not resonate vibrations such as other materials, instead it gobbles them up. A wooden tripod placed in a shallow stream may be vibrating quite a bit where the legs meet the water, but up at the column it is dead as a doornail. Putting a laser pointer on top of a metal, carbon fiber and wood tripod and shaking the legs of each clearly displays the advantage. The laser pointer's beam upon the wooden tripod will have come to a rest much quicker than the others, and additionally its resonating disturbances will be smaller as well. This will assuredly show up in your pictures!

The Berlebach Car Window Mount securely clamps to a glass window and provides a solid, stable platform in which to mount a camera, spotting scope, or binocular while observing wildlife from an automobile.  The 3.15 x 3.94" mounting plate's suitably broad enough to accept large optical units, and comes with a 1/4"/20 threaded mounting screw.

          Comments about Berlebach Wooden Car Window Camera/Scope Mount:

          Very sturdy and works well with my Nikon D800 using wide or telephoto lenses with no problem. I also use it for motion video to cover a certain area by driving slow to avoid road shake. Please note that even though it is a very sturdy device you need to take into consideration that the window itself has play, securing the glass with your arm or any other technic is not a bad idea. Using any kind of a good tripod head is highly recommended because the window has its own fixed angle. You may need a screw size adapter/converter to fit the tripod head.

          This window mount is solid and easy to use. It is lightweight yet provides a solid support for a professional size DSLR with a zoom lens mounted. If there is any negative, it is the bulk of the unit.

            Comments about Berlebach Wooden Car Window Camera/Scope Mount:

            Very easily mounts to a vehicles window and is super stable. There are numerous applications where wood is a better construction material than metal. One of which is that wood is naturally warm to the touch in cold weather. I installed a medium sized ball head to its platform and my camera is rock steady while photographing wildlife from my rolling "blind".
