Wooden Camera Tripods
Berlebach is the leading manufacturer of wooden camera tripods and has been producing them since 1898. Wood tripods have many advantages over their metal counterparts. They look good and are easy to use, whatever your camera set up is.
Wood has classic style appeal so when teamed with a modern or vintage camera , you have created a look that will get you noticed. Most models have a levelling base and a bubble level so you can check it's straight before you take your picture. The legs spread in three directions so you can get the perfect position. They lock using classic screw clamping and rubber feet stop them from slipping. Some camera tripods have a quick release lever on each leg so you can change the height quickly and easily. A geared centre column makes movement easy and an angular stop keeps the tripod fixed in position for optimal stability.
Wooden tripods dampen the vibrations of taking a picture. Wood does not resonate in the same way and it absorbs the vibrations so your camera will stay perfectly still while you take a picture. Wood is easy to clean and unaffected by mud, sand and water so if you enjoy outdoor photography it's unlikely to be affected by light exposure to the elements.
If you expose a wooden tripod to extreme temperatures, whether it is hot or cold, it's unaffected and is the perfect tripod to use in the height of summer or dead of winter.
Wooden tripods are finely made pieces of equipment built using traditional techniques so they will last for years to come. Wooden tripods come in a wide range of sizes to suit your needs. The price reflects the quality and it's worth it to have such a sturdy and resilient piece of equipment to use with your digital camera .
