Re: Tripod for tall person with Olympus OMD 5

I recently bought a light weight Manfrotto tripod for my E-P2 (now E-PM2).  I believe I got the MKC3-P02 tripod, but I may have gotten one of the other MKC3 versions.  Lets see, according to B&H:

  • Load capacity: 3.31 lb (1.5 kg)
  • Maximum height: 64.96" (165 cm)
  • Maximum height without extending center colum: 53.54" (136 cm)
  • Minimum height: 17.91" (45.5 cm)
  • Folded length: 16.9" (43 cm)
  • Weight: Total (tripod and head) 2.2 lb (1.0 kg)
  • Price: $60

Lets see:

Now, I wouldn't use this tripod to hold my E-5, but it is good for the Pens.
