    Night shots (e.g. night market, night city street) without tripod, can it be compensated by other means (flash?)? Want to travel light and really hope not to bring a tripod if possible.

    the camera (DSLR or P&S or ProConsumer)(if can model too)
    the setup you would carry etc...flash,lens,tripod, accessaries....

    if possible give the reason when you carry what you carry and if it is not too much to ask the model too..
    If it's a photographic trip, the least I will bring are these:-

    D200
    12-24/4, 17-55/2.8, 80-200/2.8, 300/4, 85/1.4, 28/1.4, 18/2.8, DC 135/2, Micro 105VR, FE10.5/2.8
    SB-800

    If it's just a leisure trip, then it's D70s with 18-200VR plus maybe a SB-400.

    Bottomline is know your objectives first, then plan what you want/need to bring. Many times, I get great images with just D70s and 18-200VR.

    flash isn't really going to help in ur case coz the flash has a maximum effective distance... so subjects close to u will appear overexposed while those far away will still be black... it's just like taking landscapes, except the exposure time can be shortened coz city areas are usually sufficiently lit up... monopods and image stabilisation systems can both help u to get the right shots, but the best way is still to use a tripod....

    Thinking... I have a D70, 18-70, 15-30, 70-300 and SB600. Should I bring everything? It is kinda heavy....

    Forget about flash - I brought the flash for my recent trip and found no use to it, instead I use high ISO for low light.... I would say leave the 15-30 as it's almost covered by your 18-70... unless you have a 12-24 or 10-20... then that would be good for landscapes....

    Where are you going?
