Good and not very expensive alternatives to copy stands or tripods

I almost forgot about them, they are really nice. I use them occasionally.

1. A Manfrotto super clamp with a ball head. You can attach it to almost anything: a shelf, a table, a chair, a lamp stand, etc., and you can take it with you anywhere. It is very solid and stable. I recommend a Manfrotto Photo Catalogue available on the internet. You will find there all kind of photo supports and accessories, including precise ball heads.

2. Same as above plus a quick removal plate

3. A microphone stand (image from the internet). You replace a microphone holder with a ball head and get the best camera "monopod". It does not take your precious space with three legs like a tripod. You can put it on the floor. With its long arm you can reach any place you wish. You can even put your camera very high over the floor with the arm set almost vertical to shoot large posters.
