    Ive got two tripods, a big manfrotto, a cheap hama of the same sort of size but alot lighter. Anyone got any tips on a tripod that will fold up small enough to go inside a camera bag but sturdy enough that it will hold a Canon 60D with a 135mm lens?

    Stick with the Manfrotto for holding that fairly chunky camera, in my opinion.

    This is a pretty hot contender. Folds up small enough to go inside a bag if you dont want a massive hunk of metal rattling about when climbing scaff or waltzing through hotel lobbys but extends to about 5 1/2 foot.

    I've pretty much permanently relegated my posh manfrotto to the cupboard for anything but walk-ins and landscape photography.

    I havnt actually taken the manfrotto out yet, its reserved for the studio, its pretty heavy, even the hama gets in the way and was a frickin nightmare at Pye.

    I use this one, it's a cracking bit of kit with a 1.5kg weight limit
