Recommendations for a super lightweight and super compact travel tripod? I presently have a Tamrac Zipshot mini and a Manfrotto tabeltop style unit. I was looking for the full sized Zipshot, which stands a little taller than the mini, but it does not appear to be made anymore and all I can find on Amazon or Ebay is the mini, which I already have.

It doesn't have to support anything larger than an Olympus PEN, and usually just a Canon G7x subcompact. Main requirement is that it doesn't take up much space in my luggage for business travel. Thanks.

Get a gorilla tripod, I won this tripod in Viewbug and it's always in my bag.

Dang, for once I had the perfect equipment recommendation ... and it's no longer available. :-(

I'm pretty sure I have a copy of that exact product skulking 'round the house someplace...

You can get a knockoff version on Amazon for less than 10 bucks...

I don't think it's a knock-off -- I almost sure it's the same thing without the REI-branding. Get it, even if you get something else too ... :-)

Don't think I'll ever use it again. If anyone wants it, "free to a good home."

Looking for something to stand about chest to shoulder height. I wasn't looking at the gorillapod and knockoffs as I don't always have something to attach it to. For example, on a beach or the middle of a road.

After my initial posting, I found a clone of the taller Zipshot for $30 on Amazon.
