My father is purchasing a tripod to use with a 600 mm lens. He needs help figuring out how high of a tripod he should get. He figured out how high it should be based on his eye level looking straight ahead. Should he purchase a tripod to adjusts taller so that he can tilt the tripod up without leaning over too much? Will the camera and lens be stable enough on not fully extended legs?

How tall is your father? What camera is he using? How much does he “want” to spend?
