Picture of Quick, cheap, and easy tripod
this is a very simple tripod for a camera that you can keep in your pocket. just screw it onto a water bottle, which shouldn't be a problem since there are coke machines everywhere.

screw the bottle cap onto a full water bottle. depending on the siz of the camera and location of the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera, it should hold.
That's a monopod
Well actually yes and no...Monopod (literal sense yes, ofcourse), you need to hold it in hand and shoot. Since we dont need to here, its not a monopod.

Oh thanks

that's not a bad idea for a more stationary monopod.

Not exactly a tripod when it dosen't have 3 legs. Its more of a monopod.
