170 cm / 67 in tripod on a budget?
2 months ago

Hello everyone. I'm looking for a tripod for up to 130€ which could reach my eye level. As of now, I've only found the Slik Pro 700DX and the Triopo MX-1327 w/ NB-2S ball. Am I missing something?
Also, how necessary is it to have a tripod set that reaches your eye level? BTW, this is my first tripod. I plan on using it for general situations, and more specifically astro/nightscape/light painting, using a K-5 II and 18-135 or possibly other lenses later (so at least 1,1 kg - which shouldn't be much of a problem, should it?).
Thanks in advance for your help.
