don't laugh at my me... (tripods)
Posted 22 August 2009 - 12:45 PM
I will be buying an Oberwerk 20x80 and an Oberwerk 8x42. Of course, I need to get a tripod for the biggie.
I'm 6'2", and most tripods are around 5". Will I have to bend over significantly to view from the tripod? If so, I don't think I can handle that. I've seen some tripods around 67", but still, that's shorter than I am, and with angle of the binos, it'll be a problem.
Do tall folks always use chairs with tripods?
Is the tripod adaptor so large that it actually provides the needed height?
Is it effective to get a tripod that can go very low, and use it while laying on the ground?
What am I missing here?
I'm hoping to get one for less than $100.

Good luck in the search.

These days I prefer to lie down to use binos.
