Re: Do you need a Tripod?

I own one, but use it so seldom that I sometimes wonder why I do.

It really depends on what you shoot. I once carried one for over a month around India and never used it once.

I've never taken one overseas since and never really missed it. You can usually find something to lean on instead.

It's a personal decision - is the hassle of carrying the blasted thing (and even my Gitzo Ocean Traveller adds a lot to the bag weight and that is supposed to be a light tripod!) outweighed by the value TO YOU in YOUR photography?

I throw mine in the car when travelling around NZ but never overseas.
