Stap or Sling as Alternative to Tripod Bag?
Aug 25, 2013

Before asking this question, I should explain my take on photography  — minimize, go light, don't be a gadget freak.

My need to carry a tripod would be light. I don't hike in forests. so at most I would carry the tripod outdoors infrequently. Usually at the beach, at parks with dogs, or shooting planes at the airport. From car trunk to setup spot -- usually less than a city block.

In reality, I would like some protection from niks and bumps when  storing in the house. But I am put off by clutter and would like to avoid getting a bag.

But when outdoors, I have the camera bag to carry. So, what is the leanest method to transport the tripod at the same time. (Hint-- Gitzo w/head weigh  about 7.7 lbs)
