    Great for mobility!
    Can you elaborate on your mini-tripod. As in brand, model. May be what I'm looking for.

    Thanks

    Wimps the lot of you

    Try an 8.75kg tripod/ball head for a few miles over your shoulder, or on a strap .. it's not difficult nor painful.

    Hi Nokin,

    I use the G2228 explorer tripod made by Gitzo.

    They tend to be a little pricy, but I can honestly tell you it's the best tripod I've used http://www.gitzo.com/
