The Report 823 Ash Wood Tripod from Berlebach is a camera and optic support constructed from solid ash wood in order to improve its vibration dampening ability.
As a member of the Report series the 823 has been designed with a magnesium mounting head which, along with an included key, allows the user to choose between 10 different center inserts to fit their specific needs. The 823 includes the module insert #2 which features a 19.6" rapid center column with a wide diameter of 1". The top of the center column is capped by a 2.6" diameter support plate equipped with 3 locking screws to prevent the accidental removal of any mounted head.
Designed for use in the field or studio, the 823 can reach a minimum height of just 21" but can also be extended to a max height of 69" including the center column. Each 3-section leg features a versatile 5-angle leg lock allowing the legs to rest independently at either a 20, 40, 60, 80, or 100° angle while maintaining the tripod's ability to support a maximum load of up to 22 lb.
When folded, the 823 collapses down to 27" for storage and weighs just 5.7 lb, making it easy to carry over short distances. Additionally, the tripod features such extras as durable rubber feet and a single-axis spirit level integrated into the tripod's base.
