I've found a great little monopod for the GM1 (and other small cameras). I normally don't shop at WalMart, but was recently sucked in by the Black Friday deals. While there picking up a TV, I was surprised to see a section of Manfrotto brand camera accessories. Among them was a really nice, small monopod for $25. It is the Manfrotto MMC3-01M: Over 57" tall when extended, but only about 15" collapsed - it weighs about 10 oz, and is rated (maybe a bit overrated) to hold 3.3 lbs. It is nicely finished with oval aluminum tubing and foam grip. I've been using it for almost 2 weeks with the GM1...fantastic. I will likely use it with some of my other smaller cameras too. I would also add that some online retailers seem to have it for the same price ($25) I found it locally for (i.e. B&H), but some online retailers have it for a whopping $70 (i.e. Amazon).
