Leitz "Tiltall" Tripod
2

I'm irrationally pleased with this tripod setup! Leg locks have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly lubed with petroleum jelly (as the Marchione brothers intended), scratches have received the Sharpie treatment (as my drill sergeants would have demanded), and I found a basic Arca-Swiss adapterthat matches the head and overall aesthetic nicely while adding a bubble and modern quick-release functionality. I cut some arrows out of a red reflective sticker material to remind me which knob does what and was compelled for some reason to add the "Red Dot" that Leitz left off Now I just need to figure out a carrying strap or to find a tripod bag for it...
