I have a few tripods, most are junky but even the best one I have is not fun at all to use. It's a Quantaray QSX 9502. It's fairly sturdy although not too compact or light and it does extend high enough for me. The problem is the head. It swivels on a horizontal axis and tilts in 2 directions. However, the lever that tilts the camera in the most likely way that I use it is completely in the way! The damned lever wont let me get close enough to the camera to look through the view finder without a lot of contortions. In other words, it sucks. I would like to get a more usable tripod, but I don't want to drop a lot of money on a Pro item (I'm after all, an amateur). Anyway, what kind of tripod are there that would work best for our OM-D cameras?
