    huh? defn, what exactly do you mean by mini-tripod? is it those really small ones, non-extendable, for table-top use kind? cos that's the impression i got when and snappy has recommended something rather different.

    Manfrotto. Can try Cathay Photo, where I bought mine years ago.

    Very sturdy, enough to hold a full sized SLR plus mid-sized lens ( my SLR+lens combo is easily 1.5kg ). Head can be bought separately, also from Manfrotto.

    You can see it at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=277899&is=REG

    If you don't need a sturdy tripod or if your camera is very tiny and light, then practically any light weight one will do. Cathay sells a range from $10 upwards.
