Using a Tripod in a River -- Is it okay?
Oct 24, 2013

I want to take some photos of waterfalls using a long exposure with an ND filter. But, the best location will actually be IN the river.

Is it safe to put my tripod in the river?

I suspect the running river will introduce some vibrations into the tripod; so I'll plan to leave IS turned on.

I'm shooting an Olympus OM-D EM5 on a Sirui T1205X carbon fiber tripod.
