    Like I mentioned to another guy, you might try Ray Morgenweck at Star Camera Company, he just made me a tripod for my 16 lb. B&J 810, it is a well built plain jane that looks very good. Cost $165 plus shipping. Pat

    Hey Kev,

    We have talked about tripods before, and I think you should take my suggestion and go for the Ries Model-A with A-200 head. The combination of the wooden tripod which dampens vibration, and the large head...you will never have ANY movement or vibration of your camera. I don't know if your ever planning to shoot larger, but you might regret limiting yourself to the smaller tripod, and at some point needing something larger.

    My old Ries is from the 40's (maybe abit older), and still has over 100 years left in it. I can promise you that a Ries will be the last tripod you ever need to purchase.

    Both Ansel Adams and Edward Weston used Ries Tripods, so you know they were good!

    Hmm, Kevin. Just tried the direct link and it brought me to the site. There aren't any examples of the custom tripods, but it was neat to check out the cameras they build. Cameron

    Just found a bit of info. on the tripods under "wet plate equipment" and "price list"

    Very interesting! There are pics of his pods on the camera pages—supporting his cameras.
