I'm looking at tripods, trying to decide if I want to replace my 30ish year old Slik. My motivation is that I'm 6'4" (76"), and I have yet to see a tripod that offers height much over 5' (60"). Even with a head and camera mounted, that leaves me close to a foot short.

Am I doomed to forever stoop and squint to get my bespectacled eyes in the right place to take a photo or is there someone who makes a 70" tall tripod?
