Looking for alternative to tripod for my 5DII when traveling overseas
Feb 2, 2010

I'm traveling to Bhutan with my 5DII and don't want to carry a tripod. However, I do some low light photography with my 5DII that requires long exposures (1 second to 30 seconds). I am considering alternatives like an UltraPod II, UltraClamp, GorrillaPod, and a table tripod. I would appreciate any recommendations. I know that a lot has been written on this, but much of it is old and it's unclear to me how well these devices work in practice and if they can handle a camera as heavy as the 5DII with the with the EF 24-105mm f4/L lens.

Any advice would be appreciated.
