This guy is using a Canon 7D with the Canon 100-400L zoom lens.

He’s fully zoomed but he still could not get the ‘right’ look. So he started to bend his knees and up/down a few times until he seems to have found the ‘correct’ height.

My problem with this dance is that sometimes I get ‘stuck’ and then it’s very difficult to stand up. My preference is much lower to the ground, so I have some carpenter knee-pad for my right knee.
