    Get a light, compact and resilient one Munsey.
    And when you do, let me know which one you bought. :-)

    I have just bought a BENRO IT15 might be worth a look.
    I will see how it goes.
    Price was $250.

    At the cheap end of the scale I have a Gorillapod. It's Flexi legs make it able to grip a tree branch or other to get some height, or just use it as a low tripod. It's good for a small point be shoot.

    I seen these ( 190 grams) . Maybe set up on a pack or rock , swivel on top , legs fold in for carrying / stalking .
    My mate has a high end camera that we used but was too bulky etc but he used a mono pod . Which was a pain as you could not let go of it .

    I will dig my one out of the shed and measure it/take photo later today.
    It is not a baby one like that though. Probably 500mm folded
