    After searching and trying about 6-7 tripods of various makes and prices, that will fit in my back trouser pocket, I finally found one that satisfies my needs.

    With some contortion, it will even allow my EPL-1 to do vertical shots with a heavy lens like the VC Nokton 50mm 1.1

    It's the best piece of kit I've got for my m4/3 system in a while and best of all it's so cheap. I only wish the ball head was made of metal.

    I think these are available on eBay under various brand names

    Yes it is great for our little cameras.
    There is some photos at the end of my post for kata 3n1-22

    The Manfrotto seems to be more flexible but this is 7$ vs 129 $

    I must stress this little tripod is no replacement for my aging but trusty 190XPROB, which I also use with my dslr, but I can't haul this everywhere!

    It is excellent for when travelling very light for which the m4/3 system is so suited and needing long exposures.

    Here's a shot I would have missed without it.
