tripod help...a different type question on tripods...:)
Jun 8, 2005

ok. I am shooting waterfalls from a pontoon boat. that does not work well for time exposures. one waterfall in particular, we can tie up to a rock kind of tapered up to a point like a mountain. Now, I would love to find a mini tripod that uses spikes, just like my full size bogen does, because I think I can set that tripod on that rock straddling the top and it would stay and be sturdy with the spiked feet. My bogen may work but I don't think after collapsing it down that it is short enough.....

Has anyone run across anything like this that would work? I looked at table top tripods, but none with spiked feet and none that seemed to support the weight of the 1dmk II and a 28-70mm lens..
