I was using an old tripod (for the first time) over the weekend only to realise that it isn't tall enough for my liking. Even at maximum height, I had to hunch my back most of the time (I stand at 1.62m), which made it physically tough for me. And certainly, it isn't tall enough to focus on high objects! I had a hard time trying to capture the image of JBP waterfall with it.
So I'm considering buying a new tripod, but am clueless how to go about choosing and what kind of features I should look out for. Does brand really matter?
Can someone please give me an idea what is suitable for my F80? Ideally, it shouldn't be too cumbersome to set up; and easy to attach and remove camera from tripod. If I'm not asking for too much, it should be able to allow me to attach the camera upside down at the bottom for low-angle shots.
