I know there are a few threads about tripods here already. But I am looking for an ULTRA-compact tripod! lol

Right now I have a cheap Slik tripod that folds down to about 35cm in length. Which is very nice because it makes it extremely portable. Unfortunately it is very flimsy and not very sturdy, and it seems to be getting worse.

So I'm wondering if anyone knows of any super small, compact, light tripods that would be suitable for m43 gear?

I was looking at this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Dolica-GX600B200-Proline-60-Inch-Aluminum/dp/B004XC3GWU/ref=pd_cp_p_3

But it is still a bit too big when folded.

Obviously I want something decent, but the main priority is portability (even if it means sacrificing some quality).

Thanks for your suggestions!

I don't own it myself, but I looked into getting a compact tripod a month or two ago - but haven't done anything about it yet. I found the Velbon Ultra REXI L seems to get pretty good reviews:
