Brom Kadette Tripodsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I am thinking about buying a Brom Kadette wooden tripod for my Calumet 4X5 wood field camera. Does anyone have any experience with this tripod? Please respond.

I think you could get away with it, but bigger would be better. I've had a Kadette for several years and still use it with a Bogen 3047 for 35mm - lrg. medium format. I use a big Ries for anything larger - it can't be beat. The Ries is in a class by itself. I really don't like the whole center post thing with the Kadette...so, I never use it ;-). A wasted feature.

I second the motion in favor of Ries tripods. I've got an 8x10 Cambo sitting on the junior model as I write this. No problem.
I like the Ries heads, as well, but my camera tends to unscrew, so I might combine a Bogen head with a Ries tripod.
Best of luck.
