Looking for an inexpensive tripod to take backpacking and do time lapses with
  • I am looking for a tripod that I can take hiking/backpacking. Features I would be looking for would be
  • - Light and compact.
  • - Steady enough to do hour-long time-lapses with.
  • - Does not need to be really tall, something like 6-12 inches would work.
  • - A lot of the time the ground is going to be uneven so it needs to adjust for that.
  • - Under $50 USD.
  • - I have a small camera (8oz) so it doesn't need to be real beefy.
  • Suggestions?
