    WOOD TRIPOD FOR DEARDORFF?

    Hello

    got a deardorff and need a tripod to match, preferably wood plus a pan and tilt head. Berlebach seems nice, any other choices? for tripod and head? i do not need much flexibility nor height.

    thanks

    There are also Zone Vl and Ries but would be expensive to ship. Both Berlebach and Wolf have good reputations.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    If you can afford a 'dorff you're probably well heeled enough to afford a Ries. There's just nothing like them. Mine transformed the way I photograph. It's one of the few products that's horrifyingly expensive but worth every nickel. Be sure to get a Ries head if you buy one.

    I would stay away from Zone VI. I had one with a Manfrotto head and hated it. They're heavy, take up too much car trunk real estate and are extremely clumsy to carry. With my Ries J600 tripod (which comes with it's own canvas carrying case) and J250 head slung over my shoulder and my 8x10 and lenses in my backpack, I'm good for at least 3 miles. And I'm a geezer.
