PPCP tripod. Good for travelling. It's my lightweight tripod if I'm not doing model shoots. :sweat:

go TCW or any 2nd hand camera shop and look for 2nd hand tripods..
good ones and cheap too if you're the practical type and dont really bother about how nicely a tripod is painted and such..

Slik tripod.

If you only want to use the tripod for self portrait (or group photo, when you want inside the photo), slik sprint mini may your good choice. IIRC, it is weight less than 1kg, height max is only around 1.25m, collapse only around 40cm. Cost you around $70.

Arto.

no point getting a "cheap" or weak tripod for a heavy setup...

save and buy a better tripod, it will last you a good 10 years or more

mine is already more than 15 years old and still going strong
