The TFA-01 Basic Pocket Pod and BC-18 Microball Package from Really Right Stuff is a great combination of a lightweight and portable table top tripod and an Arca-type compatible BC-18 Microball.
Really Right Stuff TFA-01 Basic Pocket 'Pod
The ultra-portable TFA-01 Basic Pocket 'Pod from Really Right Stuff supports up to 15 lb, and measures 5.8" when folded. Its aluminum-alloy legs each feature an independent spread and when fully splayed, provide a height of 1.5". To enhance stability, rubber feet are included at the end of each leg, all of which allow the level of tension that is applied toward their range of movement to be individually adjusted.
Cameras, lenses, sport optics, or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be directly connected to the tripod's 1.3" diameter platform. An adapter bushing is included for cameras, lenses, sport optics, or accessories that require a 3/8"-16 mount.
