I usually prefer using the EVF rather than using tht LCD,all the pictures I posted were taken using the EVF.

Thanks for your reply Tullio, but I want a tripod which can give me adequate height,please do tell me If you know any in that class.

Hi Kriss, I bought a Mini-D PlatinumPlus by Sunpak and it works great as a portable unit. It's actually a table tripod so you are a bit limited to where you can set it up. I carry it in my car and I've used it a lot to take sunset shots on my way home from work.It's about 7-8" tall when retracted and it extends up to 11.5". It's very sturdy, well crafted and it won't break your budget ($15 at Best Buy).It is certainly compatible with your backpack. Check it out. You can also buy table tripods on eBay for as low as $5.

Hi.

If portability is important, why not consider a monopod? Much lighter than a tripod and folds away much smaller.
