I'm looking at "real" tripods now and I see some of them go up pretty high. Being the geek gadget monger that I am, I see bigger numbers and I think to myself "well, damn, I gotta get the BIG ONE", but then I start to think... you know, I'm only 5' 8"... eye level for me is like 5' 2"... I can't really use an 8' tall tripod unless I carry around a 3' step stool. So... what's the point? My fear is that if I get a smaller one that I might later stumble on the situation where I need it and go "Ohhhh THAT'S why I wanted the big one" and then kick myself for having a small (cough) tripod. Thoughts? Thanks!
