    Which travel tripod for Powershot G7X mark ii?

    I would welcome recommendations based on personal experience as regards a tripod suitable for use with a Powershot G7X ii on day trips and if possible longer treks.


    I am looking for a tripod that is as light as possible but yet stable enough for photos of landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes, including night scenes, even if there is wind.


    Height is not a major factor since I can tilt the touchscreen down to frame and focus.


    I was initially attracted to the very light tripods such as Vanguard Veo2 235, Rollei TR1, Sirui T series, etc., but my enthusiasm was cooled when I read reviews which complained that when fully extended they were not very stable, especially in windy situations.


    I have tried a Gorillapod but find it useless out in the open.


    Thanks for your suggestions!

    Get a Manfrotto Pixi Mini, It compact and stable.

    Any tripod gets less stable when fully extended and there is wind. I dont recommend anything by Manfrotto. They make junk and I dont understand how they stay in business. Vanguard is a good tripod. Mine came with a small attachment that clips on the legs and you can put something in it like dirt or rocks to stabilize the tripod on windy days.
    I wont shoot a wedding for any amount of money.
