Camera Stand/Tripod?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have the Fujifilm Finepix S2000HD, and I'm wanting a cheapish tripod. Mostly for small things, like taking a picture of something on my desk, or creating a small stop animation. Not for taking a picture of a landscape or something. But at the same time I want it to be sturdy, not cheap.

Any ideas what works with my camera, is sturdy, and small?

I'd say my budget is under $100, but I really don't want to pay more than 30 if I can. I have no idea how much these things tend to go for.

You can use the legs to wrap it around a door frame or a pole or something. Quite nifty.

I've seen that thing before. Is it really all that sturdy? I'm afraid it'll break or not be very flexible, and just end up being a drag that can't take a simple shot on even footing.

Do you think the regular model could hold my camera?

Apparently the regular can hold about 10ounces, and my camera is .33pounds...

According to Google.

The regular Gorillapod holds up to 9.7 oz. and is good for small cameras.
