Ask Engadget: best travel-friendly / portable DSLR tripod?

Darren Murph

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget question is coming to us from Deepanshu, who is already beginning to understand why the term "money pit" follows" DSLR." If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.
"I went out and got a Canon T2i, and now I am looking for a decent tripod, preferably one that travels well. I need one which is lightweight, with a price range of $75 to $125 or so. The main purpose of the tripod will be for HDR photography, night shots, etc. when I'm on-the-go. Thanks!"
We're guessing Joby's Gorillapod Focus will get a nod somewhere down in comments, but how's about any suggestions in the more conventional line of tripods? Got any that extend out nicely without killing your back (or forcing you to check it on an airplane)? Let us (and him) know!
