The Zone ZN5000 is beautifully finished wooded tripod made in Vermont with USA craftsmanship with natural advantages of wood continually appeal to discriminating shooters.Handling wooden tripods in temperature extremes is quite a different experience than that of a metal or even carbon fiber tripods.Wood just seems not to care.
But despite wood's impervious nature to temperature and its general asthetic appeal, the best reason to choose wood over other materials for tripods is its incredible capacity to absorb vibration.Wood simply does not resonate as as other materials.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 and wood tripod and shaking the legs of each clearly displays the advantage.This will assuredly show up in your pictures!
