After I discovered after many years of taking pictures again, I really wanted you stand a stable wood. Unfortunately, the well-known manufacturers are very expensive, so I came up with the idea to make one same. This is my so-called prototype’m going to make the occasion even one or two, where the failure of the first will be ironed out. A tripod made of wood, in contrast to the aluminum tripods, better vibration suppression. Also one says that it should be less susceptible to variations in temperature and water. In the aluminum tubes often remains standing water which can be easily wiped off here. Who would like to have more information, you can write me happy, also for further improvements, I am very grateful. The next time you stand attaching the legs is definitely changed, can also be omitted under certain circumstances the lower cross strut. Think also about a three-part excerpt, the then but will also slide on each other, also held the leveler through an intermediary extract.
Something to the masses: The weight is about 3.3 kg with ball head is pushed along the length 110 cm and complete.. built 155 cm. Of course, the amount varies with the leg distance.
