A while ago (3 years), I extensively researched light

finally purchased a Benro Travel Angel C-068 without
head, and added a Novoflex Ball 30 head and an
FLM PRP-45 quick release system (the system with
the smallest camera plate).

It seems that the currently available successor of the
moddel I bought is called Travel Angel Transformer
C0681TB00 has a monopod integrated and is not
available without ball-head anymore:

After three years of light use, I am still very happy
with the Benro tripod, and can recommend it
without reservation.

This is my favorite suggestion so far, but I'd like to hear more ideas now that the DP1 Merrill and DP1 Merrill are out in world. I'm hoping to purchase one or both, and so far I'm only planning on getting a zipshot for my Nikon J1. If I can be persuaded to get a better tripod instead, I can use it for the Sigma DP cameras when/if I get them. Oh, and eventually I'll probably want to upgrade my Nikon 1 to micro four thirds, so I'll use the tripod(s) for that too.
