Re: Stap or Sling as Alternative to Tripod Bag?

My solution: A Tamrac tripod bag. On sale for $50. I went to the largest camera store in Hollywood and talked three guys. One who has sold me a few accessories and doesn't seem like an acquisitive gadget freak.

His parameters are as follows:

leg wraps -- they work, but get in the way while shooting. And bulky in confined spaces.

sling --- the tripod bangs against your back

padded bag --- pricey and a pain when you take it off outdoors. they get stolen, blow away in the wind.

The Tamrac bag was marked off $25. It is thin, simple and strong. I don't want to over think this thing, and I am not about to buy a new camera bag (backpack style or otherwise) just because it has a loop for a tripod. 8 lbs on each shoulder with the tripod and present camera bag is enough load for me.
