    My My,
    I would go for a vintage Ries A-100 and model A PhotoPlane head for the big camera and keep the cost under control ! It just so happens I have just that tripod (ries A-100 and model A photoPlane head) needing a home--email me at josburke@bellsouth.net .$425 plus shipping (about $35 UPS)

    I've only got a puny 5x7 Burke & James but I'm pretty sure my Majestic tripod with Majestic geared head would hold most anything up and hold it rock solid. My Majestic tripod has a geared center column which is also very solid. Paid $107 including an extension arm.

    I use a Gitzo 1500 series carbon fiber set of legs with a big majestic head. It holds my 12x20 rock steady and has the added convenience of being light enough to actually carry some distance.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    I manage pretty well with a Berleback 3032 tripod. it has a small 15 degree leveling ball plate that pretty much works for a majority of situations. I also use an old Davis & Sanford tripod/head to shoot verticals with the 7x17. both are great products.

    Ries Model-A. The only tripod I suggest for ULF.

    My Saltzman works great. Not so good for backpacking...

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    I have a Miller wood movie camera tripod that is about the same size and weight as a Ries A 100, but was MUCH less expensive to buy used. This thing will hold a building, but I'll be using it for a 7x17 camera. Not too far from the car though.

    They are related in design, going back to the same nationalized company during GDR times (VEB Foto-Kino), but they are independent companies now.

    Oh and Yes the Wolfs are really good, in my opinion much better then the Berlebachs. I just have my first Woody from the Wolf's and like it alot for my Burke & James 8x10.
    The loking down part is much better on the Wolf's then on the Berlebach, if Berlebach did not change it the last 4-5 years!
    Have a good time! Armin
    Good light and nice shadows!
