Table Top Tripods

Does anyone know of a table top tripod that has a range between say 6 and 18 inches.

I can find ones that are one height or that look very unstable more like a back light stand.

I need them not to support a camera, but another item, much lighter that has a tripod thread.

Any ideas welcomed.

Was trying to avoid 7DS as I need them for definite for next weekend. My home setup for the paint splashes involves stacking square vases to the appropriate height, but that's not practical with 60 odd people wandering around. Plus I've been meaning to sort the issue out properly once and for all and have something more configurable than vases and books! Grin

So was hoping to find something at WE, but no luck. Or even dare I say Jessops.

Just wondering if anyone knew of a good one - prepared to pay 50 each, if they are stable. I already have some of the cheap ones free from mags and the like, but they really on do about 6 inches.

could this hama at picstop do the job?

Thanks Andy, just found that one at Amazon, and it does look like it could do the job.

Think that could be the one.

See I knew someone would help me find one, and you've confirmed my own findings.

Not sure about the extension, but it could come in handy sometimes. But certainly one of the more flexible options.

Originally I was going to get a second ergorest from 7DS, but they must have sold them all.

the velbon looks really sturdy but has a min height of only 30cm

Yeah 30cm is too high as a starting height.

Think the hama looks most flexible.
