I just got my Sanyo Xacti CG65 and love it. My dslr tripods are too big for the cute little Sanyo. What is the best tripod that is as cute as the Xacti?

Hi ruchai, I really love the Gorillapod (the original), I've had one for over a year, it'sa great companion for the CG65 and most (ultra-)compact digicams. It's lightweight and flexible, fits in a coat or cargo pants pocketand is ultra versatile. I've attached it to so many things: trees, door knobs, hooks, bricks, rails, posts, signs, frames, etc.; and with it's rubber grips, it can even hang on to slick surfaces when its legs are spread.

It's great for travelling and including yourself in shots, but of course it's not a replacement for a typical tripod if you want to shoot a very steady shot and pan.

I finally found one that not only as cute as the Xacti but works very well, stable enough and very light. It is a Sony VCT-R100. Look like Sony designed this one for Sanyo Xacti!

Check out the manfrotto modosteady.
It`s a folding 3in1 solution, steadycam/shoulder support/table tripod.

Ooo, that's a nice, versatile tripod/shoulder/chest cam holder. I like all of the options on that. Just wish it was a tad less expensive. One of the reviewers said it worked well for him while hiking. I would love to try that.
