    If you have enough budget, get the Gitzo G1001. $215 + GST at Cathay. Small, light and surprisingly stable. Otherwise, look for the lower end SLIKs.

    ck thks for the reply..
    the slik seems quite big for travelling.
    what about those small ones?
    you know those that are the size of your forearm.
    are those worth getting?

    *pardon me for all the questions*
    my experience is as much as the no of post i have.

    Check out a Cullman? The Magic ones, foldable and very compact. See if it's stable enough for you.

    The Gitzos are around there, but unfortunately cost too much.

    There is on rugged built from Manfrotto
    small enough to put into your vest pocket
    and tuck away into a corner of your camera bag.

    The No Centre Column Tripod Table Top
    (Manfrotto Art 209) weighting a mere 2 kg
    with a height of 13cm. Don't go away travelling
    without it when you want to travel as light as
    you can.

    A small tripod should be rugged
    enough to handle some of the
    equipment that you are using.
    It should be small enough for
    you to bring it along anywhere
    you go.

    This table top seems to be attractive.

    erm... if this table-top tripod weighs 2kg, its probably one of the heaviest around!... think it can take a load of 2kg but the weight of the tripod itself is abt 200g I think...
