A couple other *pod options that are available for compact cameras include the Joby Micro 250 and the Gomite Tiltpod.

These Micro 250 weighs about 0.9 oz, and the Tiltpod weighs about 0.3 oz..

Another pocket tripod for those who like to have a multitool on hand is the Gerber Steady.

It's a multitool that includes a mini tripod option.

I purchased the Joby Micro 250 tripod about a month ago and have been using it on my weekend day hikes. Weighs only 0.875 ounces. It's pretty stable with my point and shoot camera (Nikon P7100).

Wildfield, I have one of those Joby Micro 250 tripods too.

I haven't used it much yet, but it's good to know it's been working out for you. So far, what have been some of the shot types for which you've used it?

I usually go hiking by myself. I use it to capture shots of me on the trail. When hiking with others, I also use it for group shots.

Otherwise, I am always holding the camera to capture photographs. I suppose if I ever attempt a long exposure shot, I would use the tripod to hold the camera steady.

Prior to purchasing the Joby Micro 250, I used a Pedco. It is only 2 ounces but a little bulky compared to the Joby Micro. It is stable/sturdy enough to support my DSLR with heavy zoom lens and it has a velcro strap, that could secure it to a tree branch, fence post, etc.

For my purposes, The Joby Micro seems plenty fine and it's incredibly compact.
