    Try this self-standing monopod 682B from Manfrotto. No idea if it's available locally, or if it's a discontinued model, but you could check with CP or any of the other bigger photo stores.

    I've tried a Manfrotto monopod with 3 small legs at the end which you can extend them to become a tripod. But not very steady leh.

    I'm shooting indoor most of the time. Tripods take out too much room in my small home studio. I am tempted to get a monopod and put the end of it in a Milo tin and pour cement into it for stability.

    Hmm.. if your camera is not too heavy, how about trying lighting stands?

    I have found a couple of them, it looks very neat, but I wonder where the small legs are stored.

    Where can I find these in Singapore? I am really interested.
