Tripod Vs. fa$ter glass - for low-light or still subjects. Your pref?
3 months ago

I am a happy and dedicated tripod user. I feel it virtually guarantees a desirably sharp, low-noise image.
I can confidently say this is a known fact.
I happily sling my old Manfrotto 3221+3030 over my shoulder with attached shoulder strap and do not feel it to be a burden in the above shooting situations.

I'm not looking for validation of technique, Just communication of your personal shooting preferences. I'd be just as happy if I was the only one shooting the way I do.

BUT I realize there is a world full of people with opinions of their own.
What's your take? Do you also actually enjoy tripod use or are you the kind that uses it begrudgingly when the lumens drop?

OR are you the kind that HATES using a tripod EVER! what's your logic?
Do you just prefer hand-held shooting with fast/expensive glass and Hi-ISO?

I've made my choice and stand by it, just curious as to what others think and do.

P.S. It goes without saying that there will be conditions where a tripod is not welcome or permitted, so of course were talking about the rest of the time. So "it depends" has already been covered here.
