    I'd like to see them make . . .

    Getting older is a bitch. Lately, I avoid stooping, bending and squatting. Getting photo gear off the ground and fiddlinging with it onto the tripod is not fun.

    I'd like to see "someone: make a set of accessory legs for my Pelican herd case. Looks like there are two hard points on the metal bottom that holds the slide out luggage handle that could be used to mount a contraption with folding out legs. Could be plain or fancy . . .the 1510 case is already $250 or near it. The contents could be worth as much as a respectable engagement ring. Why not another bit of gear for an old man to buy?

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I would like to have adjustable leg heights for uneven surfaces. This sounds like a venture opportunity for an enterprising individual. . .

    For now you could take a hiking chair along w/ you they are light weight and can easily be carried on/in bag. Then open chair and sit camera bag on hiking chair? https://www.amazon.com/G4Free-Portab...FV843W7MJCJWA8

    And a larger one that weights 4oz more then the 1st. https://www.rei.com/product/151449/h...fac8deccb2cf5a

    Is there a full sized tripod without adjustable legs?

    How about an all terrain self propelled recoil-less 8x10 camera?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Right now, I do bring along a hiking chair and SIT on it while working with the bag on the ground on one side and the tripod on the other side . . .opened to ~3' Hight.

    I actually bought one of those chairs in that model at THE outdoor shop in Estes Park last August. Bent the legs about the 2nd time I used it . . .indoors no less. I am 5'8"/200#. Not a good product in my gook.

    What I'd like to do is work standing up with the camera gear at waist Hight.
