What’s a good height for a tripod?
An average contemporary tripod’s three legs extend 50–63 inches (126–160cm) from the ground. Shorter and taller tripods are available, but this is the standard range. If the tripod has a center post that allows repositioning of the camera higher, this height may allow you to shoot from eye level.
Is a 60 inch tripod tall enough?
A tripod should always be able to bring the camera to the photographer’s eye level. That would be about as high as you could normally get to take a photograph. A 60″ tripod should easily do that. The height won’t make up for the wrong focal length at a given distance.
What size of tripod do I need?
Always make sure that the tripod you want to buy can support at least 1.5 times more than the total weight of your camera and your heaviest lens. I say “at least” because I prefer to keep it at around 2x more.
What is the maximum height of tripod?
PORTABLE PROFESSIONAL TRIPOD: This professional grade tripod made with aluminum alloy weighs about 950 grams and can take load upto 2.5 kgs, with maximum height of 56 inches (144 cm).
Is a tripod really necessary?
You don’t actually need a tripod. You can set your camera on the ground, or on a bag of rice, or a pile of books. The important thing is that you are not in contact with it at the time the shutter fires. So not only do you need to stabilise it, but you also need to use either a cable release, or the self timer.

Do I need a full size tripod?
A travel tripod can help you keep your camera stable and avoid blurry shots due to unsteadiness and shake. Although a tripod is often thought to just be needed for older folks and those with shaky hands, it is impossible to hold a camera completely still for any length of time no matter your age or fitness.
How do I choose a tripod?
Features to look for in a travel tripod

How can I make my tripod shorter?
The easiest way would be just to cut the smallest tube. This would give best stability (this part of the leg should always be extracted last if not needed fully extracted anyway). More nice would be to remove the clamps and shorten all sections to get a shorter tripod altogether, but this would require a bit more work.
How important is a tripod in photography?
A tripod allows you to use a long exposure, i.e. a faster shutter speed of up to several seconds, without the risk of you moving. You can also use the flash to light up your subject while using a long exposure so that the background doesn’t come out too dark.
