How tall does your tripod need to be, how short can it be ??
Suppose a picture of a person standing in front of you
has to be taken. This person is six feet, or about two meters
high. The camera stands on a tripod with a zoom with focal
lengths that go from 24 mm. - 85 mm. The tripod and also
the camera have a bubble that helps them to keep the
lens parallel to the floor and perpendicular to the subject.
(I have not used yet a bubble level myself). I would like to
ask a few questions because I may buy a new tripod.
A decisive point for me in the purchase is the folding size
and the weight. I am willing to sacrifice on the maximum
height. So, if for example you take a look at the following
two tripods, they are more or less the same tripod. The
major difference is their maximum height, and the price.
How much "height" would one need in order to photograph
the six feet person I mentioned, or people with a height
between five and six feet ?? Sometimes I may photograph
the full body, and sometimes from the waist up. I may
keep the focal length of the zoom at 50-60 mm. and then
just move back and forth the tripod a bit. Besides this
kind of portraits, some small products would also be shot
with the tripod.
Thank you in advance, kind regards,
igmolinav : ) !!!
P.S. The Induro tripods cost 1/4th or 1/5th of what the
Gitzo cost. Mmmmhh .........
