Most modern tripods are made of materials that are designed to be light-weight yet stable.

You can purchase them directly from Berlebach, or find one marketed as the “Expedition Wooden Tripod” over on Photojojo for $290.

I have to say, this wooden wheel gives a little more coolness to the old camera.

Would you have the same reaction if your loaned camera returned to you with this “upgrade”?
