yep the mentioned Siuri is probably one of the best and king when it comes to weight. Some time ago I wrote about the Velbon UT 43D which is very compact but slightly heavier than the Siuri:

So, I'm looking into cheap, sturdy, small tripods. I don't need carbon fiber and I don't need the utmost of quality.

I found this little offering by BENRO

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/871069-REG/Benro_A0350Q0T_MeFoto_Travel_Tripod_With.html

So my questions are..

Anyone know of a travel tripod that is

1) as small as this one (or smaller)? ie size when collapsed = 12.6 inches!!!
2) around the same price point (or lower)?
3) which is comparable in its stability/features?

Thanks!

Also... anyone own this model? any user experiences to share?
