Tripod Report 322

REPORT column

Product Description

The tripod Report 322 is equipped with the module insert 2, i.e. with a centre column which has a length of 50 cm and a diameter of 25 mm, made of precision-drawn light-metal tubing which ensures an easy height adjustment.
The support plate made of aluminium has a diameter of 68 mm and is equipped with a fixed fastening screw (size to be selected) as well as three locking screws which secure the mounted system against unintentional loosening.
When using an extra-short centre column (10 cm), it is possible to work near ground level.
The specified maximum height applies if the 50 cm centre column is extended.
Single tripod leg extension.

The light magnesium mounting head serves as module basis for 14 different inserts. The module insert can be changed at all times using a special wrench (included in the delivery of the changing module). The fixation in the cone ensures a positive-locking, clearance-free connection of the components.

Thanks to the stop system, it is possible to set angles of spread at approx. 20°, 40°, 60°, 80° and 100° by means of a wing catch. The stop system is designed in such a way that the specified loads of the tripods are also guaranteed at a maximum inclination of the tripod legs.

What people say about this product

Igor - from Canada

"I've had the pleasure of using this model now for more than 3 months. I am an avid medium format FILM photographer, and the Berlebach products fit my old school profile. This tripod gives up nothing to modern materials tripods when size and load capacity are compared.

My camera equipment consists of a B1 ball head - Pentax 67ii and lenses ranging from 55 to the 400 EDif. The 400 is a BIG lens - and long - remember this is medium format. With a 1.4x converter plus the heavy Pentax camera hanging off the end - represents quite a load, plus overall length. With the B1 and 400 - I'm pushing 7 to 9 kilos (16-20lbs) depending upon my set up. Rock solid. When I first set the tripod up - legs retracted - I could lean my full weight of 170 lbs on it without straining it. Try that with other types.

I got this model for the extra leg length. This allows me to shoot the camera at eye level - leaving 15 cm of leg still to go for those special situations. The centre column stays retracted. I included it for those times when you spread the legs to get down - but find your a bit low. I can easily raise the centre column a short distance without compromising stability with the 400 lens. I can raise it substantially with smaller lenses. I ordered the split column for convenience - plus the shortened version.

Mirror slap is an issue with these big Pentax cameras especially with low light situations. The camera has mirror lock up - but cannot always be used in every situation. I have tested the camera - tripod for any blur with my smaller lenses where mirror slap would induce vibration more than with a heavier lens. No detectable softness to the photo - or vibration effects that would prevent me from blowing up the image to the maximum. No flexure or vibration - with any lens - at any shutter speed.

This model is a bit longer to carry. But it balances easily, and is light even when compared to carbon fibre models designed to carry this kind of load. Put a second clamp on the legs, and I'm sure it will hold closer to 35 lbs or more. It's that solid. A joy to use - and look at. Consider the cost for the load capacity compared to carbon fibre - it's a bargain."
