tripod : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hi all,

I am owning an 5x7 Czech made view camera which weights 3.65 kg. In present i use an older aluminium tripod with height about 180 cm without the center column down. I quess that with the collumn up it reaches 2,5 m ( i dont measured it yet). The only disadvantage is the weight wich also just guess, around 10 kg.

You might want to look into Berlebach tripods which are easy to find in europe. They are wooden, nicely made and weigh less than 10 kilos. I think they are to be found under
