Here's a light, versatile, tripod head that also works without the sticks: the Edelkrone Flex-Tilt Head.
I first read about the device on Imaging-Resource.com, and they have a good write up about it worth reading.
What caught my eye is its ability to work also as a standalone device, weighting only a pound, and being able to shoot downward. Shooting down on objects is usually a problem for traditional tripods.
The Edelkrone Flex-Tilt Head is scheduled to ship in about a month, and is available for $99.99. As I wrote in the headline... very clever!
