Thanks to this forum I am a brand new owner of GF2+14mm pancake. Now, I need your help for another issue. Next month I am going on a trip to Iceland and I hope for an opportunity to photograph some northern lights. Obviously I need tripod, but I want to keep it as cheap as possible for a couple of reasons: -for now I cannot imagine needing tripod a lot, maybe in the future. I certainly prefer "disposable" one right now and if in the future I decide a better one is needed I won't feel bad for the small amount wasted now -as you can see based on my camera purchase i have kinda limited budget. Iceland has viscous winds, so I am basically looking for something very sturdy. Weight is not an issue, if anything I can imagine against wind more weight will help. I will have a car all the time in iceland, so thats not a problem. These are the three I consider: First two have a hook, on which to put some extra weight for stability - a feature I like. I cannot figure out the differences between the two. Hama Star 63 Tripod with Carry Case: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-Star-T...1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1329531174&sr=1-1 This one gets the best reviews and looks more professional then the rest. But it lacks the hook for extra weight. Hama 00004210 Profil Duo III Tripod for Photo/Video: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics Can any of the three fit my purpose? If not I might consider renting, altough I guess that will be more expensive in the end. You are free to give more suggestions(euro based sites only), but I really cannot afford much more then that. P.S. I just read that Gorilla Pods can be clamped to car doors. I initially disregarded them, because I cannot imagine large stability in wind, but that car door clamp actually sounds attractive. Could that work?
