      Hi all, I've been hunting around for a travel tripod and I thought I'd ask if you have any recommendations.  I need something that will collapse down to be as small as possible to fit in a bag but that will extend to around 1.5m so I can get straight-on people shots.  Any suggestions?  Thanks all

      It depends on what size camera you're using, if you need a fluid head, etc.

      The Gitzo Traveler 2 is a great still tripod that might fit the bill if you're doing more lockdowns with only limited pans, etc.  It goes down to 17" and goes up to 58".  It's carbon fibre and weighs nothing yet holds up to about 25 pounds.  It's not cheap but is really sexy if you need that level of features.

      I've bought a Velbon Ultrek 43D in the end as itt's a 1.56m tripod that collapses down to just 29cm  πŸ™‚  Perfect for slinging in a bag http://www.velbon.biz/product/ultrek/index.html
