Best small tripod?
 
Speaking tabletop, or smaller. For some relatively cramped spaces too, possibly a gorilla pod?

Get the GorillaPod Focus. Expensive, but it's insanely solid compared to the competition. A buddy of mine uses one and swears by it. Personally, I haven't found need for one as I have my manfrotto, but I have considered getting one to carry in my bag for trips where a tripod is too cumbersome.

That's what I was thinking. As long as I don't throw a massive lens on there, I should be set. Okay, not massive, but a decent zoom lol. Now, to find a store in Jax that carries it so I don't have to order one :D

I put my 7D with the 70-200 f2.8 IS on the Focus and I didn't have any problems with support. The thing with the gorillapod is that you might not be able to wrap the arms around a post or a branch with a large camera, if you decided to trust it that much at least.

If you have a really wide angle lens such as an 11mm, you can actually take a camera with this tripod and stick it on the hood of a car. Start pushing the car, open the shutter for a second or so, and then you will have a photo that makes the car look like it's moving really fast, when you only moved a few feet.

Sorry for the rabbit trail, just something cool you can do with this tripods.

If you want to step up, I've been VERY happy with this as a very small, travel tripod...comes with Kirk compatible head and plate:

If you want the best that money can buy, and I KNOW that you do, look no further than Really Right Stuff. TFA-01 Tripod with BH-25 LR Ballhead - TFA01-LR-Pkg

I have heard awesome things about RRS. I'll check em' out.
Strangely enough, yes I like having the best of everything, but I will settle depending on how much use things get. That looks quite nice. I am definitely looking into it!
