BTW, not sure how it is there but here in Utah the last Museum I went to was funny. I was carrying my bag with all me lenses and my nex at hand any my GF had her Nex-F3 as well. We were asked if we had a tripod and I said she said, it is fine then to take pics because if you have a tripod that makes it professional photography which is not allowed . Hilarious

It's not just Utah - it's global. I got my small chest-pod discovered on a scanner getting into the Haga Sophia church/mosque in Istanbul last year. I got stopped in the scanner at the Vatican Museum 2 years earlier

I'm leaving it home this year. I have a tiny plastic device that doesn't look like a tripod that I can put in my pocket. I have a pacemaker, so I can't go through a magnetometer, and am never scanned at museums.
