I just happened on a mention of this on macworld.com, of all places, and was instantly fascinated. Had not heard of it before, but it's been out since 2011. Still selling for $290, which I thought was reasonable for this. Does anyone have it or even seen one? I'm entranced, but would like to hear from others. Surprised that there aren't any reviews by photo sites. Check out the photos. Isn't it gorgeous? http://photojojo.com/store/awesomeness/wood-camera-tripod/ Made by Berlebach, but apparently not in Berlebach's catalog. https://www.berlebach.de/?sprache=english BTW, I was told by an astrophotography enthusiast, who was buying my friend's Celestron 8 telescope with a very large wooden tripod and equatorial mount, that he wanted it because of the wooden tripod. He said it dampened vibrations better than anything.
