I'm looking for a small, portable tripod for a trip to Europe in a week. I will be using it to support a 6d and 17-40mm lens. I have looked at a bunch of stuff and there are quite a number of options. I'm turning to you guys to help me quickly make a decision so I can order it in the next day or two and have it be here in time.
I was looking at the Gorillapod ($50 or so) but there is also the Focus version that some of you have mentioned here on the board (although I don't know if I need that much support). I was also looking at the Manfrotto Pixi Mini Tripod as well as this one here. I would like some thing small enough to fit in a backpack (hence no big tripod). Anything under $100 that will provide good support for some long exposure photos would be great.
Thank you for your help!!
