Tripods - What is with this eye level height issue?

ignorance is bliss?

Try to photograph animals up in a tree or on a hilside with a telephoto lens and you will want to have a taller tripod with a much higher working height. The alternative is to shoot hand held and hope for the best - tough to do with a 11 lb camera and lens setup.

Working height often includes the center column being raised and 99% of the time this does not work with a heavy lens or for medium length exposures. This is particularly the case with so many "travel" tripods.
