Fuji lightweight camera support - bean bags, clamps, mini-tripods,

I always carry a camera with me on bicycling adventures but I don't want to carry any extra unnecessary gear like a tripod. When I want to take a long exposure I use a bean bag to stabilize my camera. When bicycling on off-road trails I've used the self-timer and hung my camera from a tree branch to get the right height and location.

I'm curious what solutions others have used to "hold" their camera when weight is at a premium, especially when traveling alone.

I've pressed the body of the camera and lens (the L shape) up against poles on the street.

I recently picked up an Ultrapod II...seems to hit a real sweet spot for useability, price, and weight. No complaints so far and the ability to velcro strap to poles/branches etc is a nice feature.

Many years ago a diy project worked great. I drilled a hole for a 1/4 x 20 bolt through the top of a vise grip. You can use any grip but, the best solution is a gorilla pod. They are well made and wrap around objects as well as easy to adjust on uneven surfaces.
