Expedition Wooden Tripod - Who needs Carbon Fibre when you can have a tripod made from wood?
Are you looking for a tripod that's got a little more style and will make you stand out from the photography crowd? Well look no further than the Expedition Wooden Tripod.
This German creation, which has been crafted the same way for over 100 years, has an ash wood finish and a varnish protection that keeps moisture out.
According to Photojojo, the solid wood legs naturally absorb vibration and they do a better job at it than steel, carbon, or aluminium. While the retractable thick-gauge spikes found in the feet keep the tripod from wobbling.
The tripod extends from 2-6 feet (1-2 metres) and its aluminium core means it weighs in at 6.20lbs (3Kgs).
The Expedition Wooden Tripod is available for 290USD (£180). Visit Photojojo for more information.
