The Berlebach 8023C Wood Tripod painted in a forest green camouflage pattern 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 8023C is a 3-section model and features a sliding center-column which adds additional height adjustment. These center-columns are made from precision-drawn light-metal tubing and are built into the tripod to fit precisely. Use of an extra-short center column (10 cm) enables near-ground-level work.
