Hand-Hold or Trudge with Tripod??
May 16, 2012

I am basically a landscape photographer attempting to take tasteful HDR shots when I can. I am going out to Colorado Springs in a week and my big debate is to go all hand-held or to drag along the tripod (it's a substantial Manfrotto with pan-tilt type head=7 lbs.+). I would prefer to take shots on the tripod with a remote, but I am traveling with two other guys and we will be hiking, biking and climbing in and out of a van driving all over the place. My question is, I've got a Canon 60d with a 15-85mm lens with IS. They'll likely be all daytime shots. Can I afford to leave the tripod at home, or do I take it? I really don't want to get a travel tripod because I will always use the better one at home. Not a good use of cash. Your thoughts?
