It doesn't have to be super high tech, but I would really like for it to be as tall as possible (within my price range of $200) and heavy duty enough to last me a long time. I've seen the Davis & Sanford Maxi industrial tripod that extends to a towering 15 feet, but it's over $1,000! Why so pricey? Isn't there a tripod that height that isn't considered professional, thus yielding a price in my range?
