For stands, how about a good camera tripod? They are designed to be transported so can
collapse pretty small, they are very adjustable, stable on all sorts of surfaces, and some
can reach up 2m or more.
And you can also find a range of camera supports that
can be strapped to trees, ground screws, clamps, and mini tripods.
As for shock
mounts, how about the Rycote models? They tend to be more compact than the OEM models and
perform better too.
Largely, but not entirely, dysfunctional.
