    are there stands that point the camera straight down onto the ground? Like for taking picture of a piece of paper laying flat on the ground, I want to be on top of it to take a picture. Problem is, I can use the LCD screen and stretch my arm out over the piece of paper, which gives me lots of camera shake, or I stand right next to the piece of paper and photoshop my feet out of the picture.

    any ideas?

    Bogen makes a tripod head that allows both vertical and horizontal attachment of the tripod post. Very handy for field work.
