I really cannot believe this. The 190CX3 has a maximum height of 120cm (with the column down, essential for stability). That's 4 foot. You must really enjoy bending over if you think this is 'plenty tall'.
I hear what you are saying hollis_f but in reality, although I am 6'2", my eyes are only 5'9". With the ballhead and camera aboard, the viewfinder is 4'7". At that height, I find it very comfortable to use. Although I have never felt the need to raise the center column, one could, if desired, raise it halfway (5" or 6") putting the viewfinder at 5'2" or 5'3". This appears to have no effect on stability at all. The required 6" bend over is a non issue, to me anyway, and the portability of this tripod more than makes up for that.
