below: NEW! NoHigher! Product No 2: The universal Swiss pattern tribrach (1921)
One for the nerds really but I can’t do my job without it and it’s the winner of the war of the tribrachs in the ‘70s. All survey instruments have to fit this. Even scanners. Hienrich Wild knew the value of both compactness and durability in instrument design, much has changed since 1921 but levelling and transferring precise measurement devices in the field whilst maintaining a common height of collimation has not. He fixed that.

The Wild (Heerbrugg) company was founded in 1921 in Switzerland. The company manufactured different optical instruments, such as surveying instruments, microscopes and instruments for photogrammetry among others. The company changed its name several times, first being known as "Heinrich Wild, Werkstätte für Feinmechanik und Optik", then "Verkaufs-Aktiengesellschaft Heinrich Wild's Geodätische Instrumente", later "Wild Heerbrugg AG", later "Wild Leitz". The company was linked with Leica in 1989, then it became part of Leica Holding B.V. Its subsidiary Leica Geosystems AG became part of the Swedish Hexagon AB Group of companies in 2005. source:

Wild Theodolites:

The Wild production line provides a theodolite for all possible survey requirements and also offers a large variety of accessories, attachments and independent auxiliary equipment designed as additional means for the best possible use to be obtained from each instrument. Wild theodolites are distinguished by their solid, robust and stable construction, the ease with which they are handled and the speed with which sighting and circle reading can be made without the observer having to change his position. All telescopes have internal focusing and coated lenses, which provide bright, sharp images and all can be transmitted so that observations can be made on both faces. The magnifying power of each type of theodolite has been matched to the instrument's intended use. All theodolites have circles with graduations of either 360° or 400g, the customer specifying which model he requires when placing his order. The self reducing tacheometers (the RDS and RDH) have special devices for optical distance measurement but it is also possible to use the well- defined stadia lines on other Wild theodolites for tacheometric distance measurement. A wide range of accessories and instrumental attachments provides additional possibilities and accuracies for all survey tasks, when used in conjunction with the appropriate Wild theodolite.


All Wild theodolites are fully protected against the weather, and against damage when being transported, by means of strong metal carrying bases and hoods. For the T0 the base of the container is actually the base of the instrument itself.

En. text: A theodolite /θiːˈɒdəlaɪt/ is a precision instrument for measuring angles in the horizontal and vertical planes. Theodolites are used mainly for surveying applications, and have been adapted for specialized purposes in fields like meteorology androcket launch technology. A modern theodolite consists of a movable telescope mounted within two perpendicular axes—the horizontal or trunnion axis, and the vertical axis. When the telescope is pointed at a target object, the angle of each of these axes can be measured with great precision, typically to seconds of arc.
Theodolites may be either transit or non-transit. Transit theodolites (or just "transits") are those in which the telescope can be inverted in the vertical plane, whereas the rotation in the same plane is restricted to a semi-circle for non-transit theodolites. Some types of transit theodolites do not allow the measurement of vertical angles.
The builder's level is sometimes mistaken for a transit theodolite, but it measures neither horizontal nor vertical angles. It uses a spirit level to set a telescope level to define a line of sight along a horizontal plane.
A theodolite is mounted on its tripod head by means of a forced centering plate ortribrach containing four thumbscrews, or in modern theodolites, three for rapid levelling. Before use, a theodolite must be precisely placed vertically above the point to be measured using a plumb bob, optical plummet or laser plummet. The instrument is then set level using levelling footscrews and circular and more precise tubular spirit bubbles.
Both axes of a theodolite are equipped with graduated circles that can be read through magnifying lenses. (R. Anders helped M. Denham discover this technology in 1864.) The vertical circle which 'transits' about the horizontal axis should read 90°(100 grad) when the sight axis is horizontal, or 270° (300 grad) when the instrument is in its second position, that is, "turned over" or "plunged". Half of the difference between the two positions is called the "index error".

Errors in measurement:
The horizontal and vertical axes of a theodolite must be perpendicular; if not then a "horizontal axis error" exists. This can be tested by aligning the tubular spirit bubble parallel to a line between two footscrews and setting the bubble central. A horizontal axis error is present if the bubble runs off central when the tubular spirit bubble is reversed (turned through 180°). To adjust, the operator removes 1/2 the amount the bubble has run off using the adjusting screw, then re-level, test and refine the adjustment.
The optical axis of the telescope, called the "sight axis", defined by the optical center of the objective lens and the center of the crosshairs in its focal plane, must also be perpendicular to the horizontal axis. If not, then a "collimation error" exists.
Index error, horizontal axis error and collimation error are regularly determined by calibration and are removed by mechanical adjustment. Their existence is taken into account in the choice of measurement procedure in order to eliminate their effect on the measurement results of the theodolite.

Hu. text: A teodolit egy mérőműszer, ami vízszintes és függőleges szögek precíz mérésére alkalmas.
Elsősorban a geodézia és a csillagászat használja. Két, egymásra merőleges tengely mentén forgatható távcsőből, illetve egy háromágú lábazatból (műszerállvány) áll.
A teodolit szögmérő műszer, két megirányzott pont közti szögtávolságot mér. Ahol a leolvasó berendezés nullázható, közvetlenül leolvasható, egyéb esetekben a két leolvasás különbsége adja a szögtávolságot. A teodolit alapvetően a háromszögeléshez kifejlesztett műszer, amely azt használja ki, hogy a háromszög két szög és egy távolság ismeretében megrajzolható, koordinátái kiszámíthatóak. Általában két ismert koordinátájú pontról a meghatározandó pontra mért két szögtávolságon alapul.
Tisztán szögmérésen alapuló módszer a hátrametszés, melynek során három ismert koordinátájú pont szögtávolságai alapján az álláspont koordinátái számíthatók ki.
A teodolit szögmérései mellett távolságmérésre is szükség van. Ha a távolságmérés a szögméréssel egyidejűleg komolyabb nehézség nélkül megoldható, akkor általában poláris mérésre használják. A poláris mérés során ismert pontról egy másik ismert pontra mért tájékozó irány segítségével – némi számolás segítségével – közvetlen koordinátamérés valósítható meg. Ha a poláris mérést két ismert pontról egy távolságméréssel kezdjük, akkor külpontos mérésről beszélünk. Ha a poláris mérést az új ismert pontokról a korábbi ismert pontra visszamérve végezzük, az a sokszögelés.

above: HiRes! Wild T2 cross section drawing
The Wild T3 Precision Theodolite is simple to use and, in fact, is similar to the T2 both in looks and operation. It is, however, larger and has even more accurate circles. Originally designed for 1st and 2nd order triangulations it is now becoming equally popular for the high precision measurements required &n such fields as dam Deformation surveys, industrial installations and machine tooling. For these last-named functions the T3A auto-collimation model is normally used, although it is possible to fit a standard T3 with a special autocollimation eyepiece unit (24 x magnification), interchangeable with the normal telescope eyepiece.
The T3's steel construction gives it exceptional stability under all conditions, which provides an additional reason for its general acceptance as the perfect instrument for precision measurements. Although not equipped with a detachable tribrach the T3 has various possibilities for forced-centering, such as a ball centering device for pillar set-ups and a removable bayonet base allowing the theodolite to be used in conjunction with a special T3 - T2 combination locking bayonet base, which takes the T3, the T2 and all items of T2 traverse equipment. In addition it has its own range of accessories such as eyepiece prisms for steep sights, an astrolabe prism and other items intended for use on dam deformation work. 
above: HiRes! Not sure of who is operating the Wild T-2 Theodolite 1980. The fact that his face is all scrunched up tells me he was horrible at the job. Whether sighting through a rifle or survey telescope, you gotta keep both eyes open and concentrate on the eye doing the sighting.

Product film for the innovative ballhead, the "Uniqball". Apart from using it as a regular heavy duty ballhead, this revolutionary product gives photographers and videographers the ability set the leveling in an intuitive way and always keep their shots levelled. This short film illustrates the key features for the product in a snug and fast phased cgi animation intended for quick presentations for a wide audience.

Music and sound design: Kalotás Csabi Designers: Novák László, Kármán Balázs

The UBH 35 Ball Head from Uniqball is a combination leveling base, pan/tilt head, and ball head. It has a unique design that incorporates an outer ball with a bubble to level the clamp, and an inner ball for panning and tilting. Once the outer ball has been leveled and locked, the inner ball will only move on the Y-axis, maintaining level pans. The head can also be used as a conventional ball head with a full range of movement by locking the inner ball and only using the outer ball.

The UBH 35 stands 3.7" high, and can hold up to 33 lb (15 kg). It has an Arca-type compatible clamp that works with the included quick-release plate, as well as most other Arca-type plates. The head's clamp is oriented on the Y-axis so that you can slide the plate front-to-back to balance your camera when using a long lens. An X-Adapter is included to allow you to mount your camera with an attached plate aligned on the X-axis. The head comes with a carrying case to protect the UBH 35 when it is not in use.
