The Berlebach Model 2042C Wood Tripod Legs with Center Column (Camouflage Finish) will appeal to the discriminating shooter. It is a beautifully finished piece of German craftsmanship, made by Berlebach, who has been making wooden ash tripods for over a century. Painted in a forest green camouflage pattern, this tripod is ideal for the outdoor observer and photographer.
Handling a wood tripod in extremes of heat or cold is quite a different experience than that of a metal or even carbon fiber tripod. But the best reason to choose wood over any other material is for its incredible ability to absorb vibrations. 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 rock steady.
The 2042C is a 2-section model and features a sliding center-column which adds additional height adjustment. The center column is incorporated into a levelling base with a bubble level, and this provides 30° of quick correction in all directions. For many applications it won't be necessary to have a tripod head at all, and of course the closer the camera is to the top of the tripod legs the steadier the camera will be.
