    Default Tools?

    I was taking photos recently, half way, the tripod head gives way. I can't tighten it as I need a allen key. I now wondering, will I need to bring tools like allen key, screw driver along if I going for a long trip or just get a new one over there? Will you brings tools along?
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Most tripods come with at least an allen key and the tool is small enough to be left at the bottom of any bag... I left mine in my cam bag.

    Army never teach you to force-prep meh lol. I will bring what I need along with me. I always bring a swiss army knife along with me just incase. Being prepared and a little bit kiasu is better than missing a photo opportunity all because of inadequate preparation.

    Cause for me, I got a "store" always with me, haha! Swiss knife but also make sure the allen key size is correct. Going to consider that too, since I planned a long trip.
