    Thanks for all the help everyone. After looking around, it sounds like a small reversible folding tripod will fit the bill for me. I like the MeFoto models, and Adorama has a nice carbon fiber...

    Very cool idea, I like it. My wife and I did something similar but we used steel rain gutter guards, hung vertically and glued magnets to clothespins to get a similar effect.

    Thanks for the feedback guys! Ive definitely done my share of propping up the camera with rocks, wallet, bottle caps, etc. Even to go as far as using rocks to prop it up inches above a flowing...

    Ive seen those Mefoto models, and they look pretty small and light. How sturdy are they with a full size camera and lens on it? They seem decently priced too, are they capable of holding a D7000...
  12. What tripod do you travel/hike with?

    Im looking for a small and light tripod to camp/hike with. I have a big Manfrotto model that is really nice, but weighs a TON, and just isn't realistic for long hikes. Its fine for car based trips,...

    Lucky to see Moab with that many clouds, it makes photos so much more exciting, and yours are no exception. Very cool editing, gives the trip a very mysterious, ominous feel. Great report!
