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 new 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. The tripod Report 723 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 centre column is extended. Double tripod leg extension.

Vibration damping: good Berlebach is the oldest tripod factory in Germany and has been manufacturing beautifully finished pieces of German craftsmanship since 1898 when it was founded by Peter Otto Berlebach. Almost from the beginning, Berlebach delivered its wooden tripods and other photo accessories abroad. A fact which is verified in the "Hamburg Export-Handbuch" from 1906. The natural advantages of wood continually appeal to discriminating shooters, handling a wood tripod in extremes of heat or cold is quite a different experience than that of a metal or even carbon fiber tripod. Wood just seems not to care. Despite wood's impervious nature to temperature and its general aesthetic appeal, the best reason to choose wood over any other material for a tripod is its incredible ability to absorb vibrations. A wooden tripod placed in a shallow stream may be vibrating quite a bit where the legs meet the water, but up at the column it is dead as a doornail. Putting a laser pointer on top of a metal, carbon fiber and wood tripod and shaking the legs of each clearly displays the advantage. The laser pointer's beam upon the wood tripod will have come to a rest much quicker than the others, and additionally its resonating disturbances will be smaller as well. This will assuredly show up in your pictures!
