Sure I have the big tripod, but what about something ultra-portable for the S-95? Short or tall, what are you folks happy with?

I have the Gorillapod with magnets and it's about $25 on Amazon. It's an amazing tripod that I use practically every day... It's small enough to carry in your pocket and perfect.

Ultrapod:

The cool part is that the design allows you to lash the tripod to trees or railings so it is extremely versatile. I have also just held the right angled section on the corners of buildings and that works very well, too.

(I think that one posted by tvphotog is a clone or rebadge of the ultrapod II)

Thanks all Going to try a few of these. Tripod's are the next thing you should buy after a good camera. I have a good, big one, but the suggestions here are all cheap so I'm going to try a few.

I have the Ultrapod II, but the basic Ultrapod will work for your S95. I also have the basic Gorillapod without magnets for my G9 and G11, but they are right at the top weight limits. Your S95 would perfect for that.

If you need more ideas, try this table top tripods search link on BHPhotoVideo

I take the train a couple of blocks away. It's the cheapest/best place in NYC for all things camera/video. J&R downtown will usually match prices but doesn't have nearly the temptations of just walking through. Used to go there at least every month or two because they were the best place to but fresh, cheap film. Always a tough choice between a couple of bricks of Kodachrome 25 or Fujichrome Velvia 50.

I like the look of the ultraclamp on there, that looks to be handy for a quick shot clamped to a rail or sign or something.

Functionally, I like my manfrotto magic arm but it's a little too heavy and bulky to bother carrying around if I'm just walking with the pocket camera with me... I do often leave it in my trunk just in case though. It's the perfect portable tripod as long as there's something solid around to clamp to.

Ah, yes...

The credit card and that pesky "place order" button problem...

I have a compact "mini" tripod that I purchased from Walmart that works well with my S95. It has retractable legs that brings it down to about 3" for transport. I believe it was well under $10.
