    Default Any tripod to fit my requirements?

    Hi, I need a tripod which is below 20cm when retracted, and can extend up to 1m+. I know this is bizzare, but I have a not-so-big camera bag, and it isn't a good idea for me to buy a new bag or carry it on my hand... Any suggestions? Have tried googling but none that can fit my requirements...

    LOL, very funny... No, I'm not fitting a bicycle with 10 people, I just want a tripod that can fit inside or can strap onto my Canon Messenger Mini... You know, those kind of bags Canon give away for free. But I don't want to carry around on my hand all the time... Makes the tripod look more like some kind of cane

    Sorry, not what I'm looking for... Thanks anyway

    Top priority is that it can fit into my bag, and I don't want a minipod or a gorillapod, and it can extend to 1m...

    TS, this is just a suggestion but how about clipping the tripod to the outside of ur bag as opposed to putting it in.
    Like using the clips that hold the flap down to clip the tripod on. This will allow for a slightly larger tripod as compared to ur requirements.

    If there is such a tripod I think it will be cheaper for you to get a bigger bag cheers .

    Yes TS, someone made a tripod similar to what you were wishing for. It is called a Tamrac zipshot.

    Dear TS,

    If you are prepared to accept a longer length, this series may suit:

    http://www.velbon.co.uk/newvelbon/pa...gitripods.html

    They have a local distributor.

    Gd idea but I won't know how it feels like to hold an overly wide bag until I try out... currently have an oversized tripod.

    Lol, thanks

    I usually just carry around my 400d body with a 50mm f1.4 prime, so my current bag is already overkill
