My review, and I still carry mine with me. I'd take it traveling to India, no doubt.

I second the Ultrapod. It folds up small, it's lightweight, yet it'll hold even an SLR steady (as long as it doesn't have a huge telephoto lens). It's also got a velcro strap so you can tie it to a pole or railing.

I like my GorillaPod . Works great on uneven surfaces and can also wrap around objects when necessary.

In one of CT's Tips threads, 2nd item down, a "chain pod" is described consisting of a thumbscrew with a hole you drill in it, a 6-foot chain you attach to it, and a foot you use to stand on its end to tension the camera. (You could replace the first five feet of the chain with string for lightness.) See http://kk.org/cooltools/archives/1436
