    Hi All,

    Can anyone recommend / point me in the direction of a Camcorder Tripod - that collapses nice and small - hence becomes easy to carry / travel with.

    I'm not looking for the ability to make 'professional' shots - purely something to mount my Camcorder onto to film canival type sences, hence saving my aching arm!

    Thanks

    Iain Chapman

    If you just want something to take the weight of your camcorder, especially in a buisy street etc, then I think you would be better off getting a monopod. These will be far smaller than any tripod and a lot lighter to carry around.

    I just bought a Miranda TP25 tripod from Dixons for £20. Fully collapsed it is very small, about 30cm long and very light (0.7kg) with quite a small head. Don't expect to do any good panning on it, and it is at about mid-chest level at full extension (125cm) - but as you ask, it will do the job for travelling needs, and fits nicely in a rucksack or shoulder bag.
