    2k can buy CF tripod with super ballhead & lots more lor.. or u meant 2kg weight?

    i dun think in market now there is any mini tripod which can support more than 1.5 or more... think a guide is the best it can support maybe a D70 with a 50mm prime...

    Try gitzo G0012 - rated 2.5kg.

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=227453&is=REG

    but it's a bit limited, as it would easily lost balance with DSLR once the center of gravity of your setup (dslr+lens) move to the front/back, eg. shooting with 45 degree angle down or up.

    gitzo G0012 mk2. very small, around 22-23cm tall when it is folded.
    suitable for small SLR/DSLR (D70/300D etc) with small fixed lens (20/50mm).
    CP sells it for s$145 w/GST last time.

    cheers..

    I use a Slik Mini Pro, works with my F801S and eikin's F80
    have not tested with my D70 but it should also work
    (the D70 is lighter, I think)

    i use Bogen / Manfrotto 709 Digi Tabletop Tripod with Ballhead (Black) - Supports 4.5 lb (2 kg) It assembles quickly and is quite stable, and features a smooth miniature ballhead, providing 360 pan and 90 tilt.

    Like Deniss kee said, i use it with 1dmk2 + 35mm f/1.4 (sometimes with 135mm f/2) without a problem at all, and it comes with the kit include extention that can be put in beetween the tripod and head, the height around 60cm from the ground.

    Lots of sports shooter use this mini tripod combine with Acra Swiss ball head, so you mount 200mm f/1.8 or 400mm f/2.8 without a problem

    Tie on trees, fence or a stick to use as monopod.
    Bend right angle to use as shoulder stock etc.

    i use ultrapod II also before use manfrotto, its made from rough plastic, easy and light to carry along, but ofcourse depends on what camera u use.

    for me ultrapod is not strong enough when i mount my camera and the plastic bend anddifficult to stand. and also the head is not strong enough for cam with batt grip, you can twist with hand even after you tighten it.
