Hi,

I'm comtemplating getting either the Gitzo GT1541 or GT1541T... I personally prefer the traveller model becos it is smaller and easier to transport around. However, I'm 1.83m...

I'll like advice if its normal to bend while using a tripod? Or should i get the GT1541 whereby i do not need to bend at all?

Thanks in advance for your opinions and advice.

If you have the $$$ and not much concern on budget
Getting a GITZO Tripod will never go wrong.
But you need to know what you want and what you expect.

Personally I own a GT1541T and Markins Q3 BH.
Is really a good and light weight set-up.

For my height, is not a problem at all but adding and BH and mounted your camera.
the height will increase.

Bending is not a issue, cos you are not standing and bending for long.
If you are shooting Night shot, you need to have a remote control or set a timer.
So you dont really need to bend too much...

If you want to read more...
check out this review.... is very interesting..

IIRC, it is not recommend to bend your body when using tripod. Search the net or CS, may have written somewhere...
