Try checking the major camera shops (CP, AP, etc) to see if they have the Ultrapod or Ultrapod II (roughly S$25 or so) in stock. I know CP had them as of a few months ago.

Do note, though, that the really cheap mini-tripods tend to be extremely unsteady. If you're intending to use these tripods for macro photography or other precise work, it's better to pay a little more for steadier models like the Ultrapod II I suggested above.

What Midnight say is pretty true. If u r using a prosumer sized digicam or an DSLR, those $8 tripod definitely not for you. I used my friend's mini tripod with my UZI and it was definitely not very steady

The Ultrapod II is designed to handle a load of about 4 pounds (~1.8kg). I think the EOS 30 + 28-135 IS will weigh slightly over 1 kg, right? So it sounds like it should be fine, at least as far as the manufacturer's operating specifications are concerned. You should definitely try it out first, though, because there are other factors to consider in addition to weight, such as whether the whole setup can balance properly.

this one is good....really light, compact and stable...but quite expensive...

i beleive it should be $35, i manage to bargain until $30 but never buy =p

the price tag was $66 (usually they mark up by 100%)

how does this giotto tripod looks like? with a ball head? legs can extend? close how long?

thank you.
