The height when fully set up is 148 cm or 58 inches but moving the central pole up it creates a height of 178 cm or 67 inches. I highly recommend this Manfrotto Tripod. To anyone who is keen on using a camera and needs to keep the Camera still even on uneven ground. The tripod is Carbon Filter and Magnesium and is in perfect condition without any marks and the Manfrotto Bag is also excellent and has a good shoulder strap.Yes the photos above are not good because I have used the patio doors and the light is not as I wanted and unfortunately I do not have a big enough wall to use as background.
