How do you carry your tripod on the road?
Sep 30, 2012

Hi,

I was wondering how other photogs normally carry their tripod on the road while on a vacation or road trip, anywhere outside the studio and without a vehicle? At times, I just grab one of the legs and walk around while at other times, I carry it on my shoulders with or without the camera attached to the tripod. However, recently, the tripod slipped from my hands straight onto the concrete road and might have damaged the ball head. Luckily, the camera wasn't on the tripod at that time but still the damage is significant enough to make me reconsider the tripod carrying strategy.
