I read about this new tripod today called the ZipShot. It folds up to the size of a small umbrella and expands to 44" tall in just a few seconds. ZipShot I don't know if I would trust it with my Hasselblad, but this summer I'm going to China and wasn't planning on bringing a tripod for space reasons until I saw this. The specs say it can handle up to 3 lbs. I was planning on using it with a Canon XSi and Canon EOS EF 28-135mm lens. Do you guys think this is just a gimmick or worth a shot? Will it work alright with a battery grip such as the BG-E8? It's only $50.
