Have a look at the Gitzo G0011. It goes up to 19" with two sections and a
center column, is quite adjustable and weighs a little less than a pound.
Put a little Cullman ballhead on it, and you're set.

You can look it up at The next size up, the 0 series,
will get you up to 37 inches without the center column, but weighs a little
over twice as much.

These are the smallest useful tripods I know of, that go beyond the table
tripods. Note 'useful'.
