- Yes, I agree, but just like yours, you can always hold steady the other end
of the center column, in case you forget your counter weight.
I usually shoot with the legs as close as possible, sometimes with lockup,
in case its wobbly, and then I don't need to angle as much.
I only need to remember roughly the height of the lens, and eyeball the
orginal nadir point. Viewpoint handles the parallax. If I have an assistant,
they can mark the exact original lens location with a finger, until I
re-setup for the nadir shot.
That works fast, and usually requires very little viewpoint correction. I
love not having to retouch the nadir. Shooting an actual shot, is even
quicker than having to do a photoshop job with clone/heal.

Outdoor you almost never have a surface which is not safe.
Indoors carpets are safe. On a slippery surface like the one on my images

Extending the 3rd leg on the tripod 20 cm and one foot on it is enough
And for 1/25 sec or faster you do not even need that, just hold the tripod
with one hand.
