Looking to get a new tripod. I will use it mostly for stills and some video. My biggest concerns are: fast and easy to set up, needs to be tall enough for me to look thru the camera while standing (6'3) and lightweight would be a bonus but not crucial.

You might want to include any budget restrictions in your specs as the range is likely to be $50-500 ...

I myself have a SLIK U200 (2 actually, picked up a "backup" at a thrift store) but they are almost 20 years old ... pretty easy to set up (clamps on the leg extensions), maybe a little heavy (I got a shoulder bag to carry mine). There are certainly "better" ones available now ...
