Tripod Report 342

REPORT levelling column

Product Description

The tripod Report 342 is equipped with the module insert 4, 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, and a levelling ball. The centre column is additionally equipped with a rotating panorama plate. By means of the centre column, the levelling ball can be tilted by 30° in all directions. 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. The spirit level ensures a quick and precise adjustment.
When using an extra-short centre column (10 cm), it is possible to work near ground level.
Single tripod leg extension.
The specified maximum height applies if the centre column with a length of 50 cm is extended.

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

Jim Dell

"I have used wood tripods now for 20 years. I have owned the Berlebach 3042 for two years and I thoroughly enjoy it. With all it's ability to level the camera and it's stability it is the finest tripod I have ever used.

As far as I am concerned it does what a tripod should do; it keeps a camera stable level and without vibration."

Daniel Kevorkian

"I have used this specific model and it was love at first sight. People think I am crazy when I spend myself illustrating the qualities of my Berlebach tripod.
This specific tool is so vital to guarantee the quality of the images I take, sturdy, light and easy to use."


"I just recently received the Report 342, was quite fascinated by the choice of wood for a tripod and it works as promised. The tripod being two section is quick to setup and take down, and very stable. The locking knobs on the leg clamps are a comfortable size that are easy to grip. Great for outdoor in cold conditions.
I'm also very pleased with the quality of the metal work in general and in particular with the module insert 4.
The module 4 with leveling is unique and easy to use. Levelling the column/base is easier to do than with a normal levelling base as I can hold on to the column for extremely fine control. I got the divisible 10/37cm column which makes near ground level work possible.
I wanted a stable platform for working in windy conditions here in Denmark, the the Berlebach tripod performs well for this purpose, so it's worth the extra weight compared to carbon fibre tripods.
The model 342 get's me ample height especially in combination with the column, I'm even considering ordering a 90cm column for even greater height for groups or for getting interesting perspectives from above."

Chandler Byrd

"I bought a 342 with the Cullmann ball head and 50/10 tube.. It all works very well with my 35mm cameras. The tripod is easy to operate and it's quality is superb. I remove the ball head and mount my Horseman L45 directly to the mounting plate and it works beautifully. The leveling ball and the strength/length of the legs combine to allow me the freedom that I demand. It is an incredible investment."
