I saw that at B&H on the end cap. It's like a blind persons walking stick. It could hold a M4/3 with a light lens, the head looks ok.
It looks like all they are using are the foldup fibreglass poles used in hiking tents, and not even the bigger/thicker ones. Wobble would be an understatement.
Looks like in anything more than a moderate breeze it would take off like one of your kites - could be good for aerial photography.......
I guess if you're looking for the ultimate in compactness and light weight, it's better than nothing, and bushwalkers tend to measure things in grams. There's a guy at work who does a lot of bushwalking and wants a camera that's better than the P&S he currently uses. I showed him my EP2 and suggested that the E-PL1 would suit him to the ground, being compact, lightweight and great image quality. The 14-42mm lens would also allow him to do close up work as well, which he likes to do on his walks. Despite all this, he is looking at getting a Canon 550D, just for the MP from what I gather.

What brand and model is this tripod? Ozray's caption above his photograph is illegible to me. Is anybody else having this problem?
