I don't ever bring my old tripod with me, not because it's too heavy, but because it doesn't fit into my bag...

So: are there any full-size tripods that fold down to, say, 35cm or less? (Extra information: it needs to support at least 1kg, and by full-size I mean at least 1m and preferably taller)

I have a Velbon CX Mini that folds to 30 cm, but it only gets 64 cm tall.

The Velbon V-Pod folds to 29 cm and reaches 101 cm, according to their specifications.

Manfrotto doesn't seem to have anything that folds to less than 42 cm.

Actually, it looks as though Velbon have a whole bunch of tripods that might do the trick - thanks for the pointer! –  Matt Bishop Jul 19 '10 at 13:42
