Really Right Stuff tripod recommendation
Jun 27, 2012

I'm looking for a new tripod system and I'm interested in the 24L/ BH-40 combo. For my gear I think anything bigger or sturdier would be overkill. My concern is the height. I'm 6'0 and would prefer something eye level. According to RRS specs the max height for the tripod and head combination is about 69 inches, which, with the camera added, puts the whole thing pretty much over my head. Everything else they make seems to be on the short side and would make me hunch over more than necessary.

Any advice or experiences with this combo or any others? 6 foot seems a pretty common height for men but there don't seem to be a ton of options that hit eve level just right.
